RV disposal help

I haven't been here in quite a while, but I hope somebody can help me with this.
I have a 1988 Class C in baaad shape that I have to get rid of. As far as I know the chassis is okay, but the house is pretty wrecked. I haven't been able to find a salvage or junk dealer that wants it.

It's a Jamboree Rallye 20 ft on a Chevy G30 chassis. At this point I'd happily just give it to someone who'd take it away, but...

Anybody out there have any ideas what to do? I'm between Atlantic and Cumberland Counties in New Jersey.

It might be easier to get rid of it if you advertise it at a low price then take whatever they offer you. You may even end up giving it to someone that shows up but that was your goal in the first place.

Washington state has an "RV Disposal Fee" paid on annual registration renewal. Many states have Rv disposal programs. Check with the Jersey dmv.
They may be able to help.

Remove all identifying marks from it and park at the nearest RV unfriendly HOA.

You could leave it in a parking lot with a for sale sign for $500. Leave the keys laying on the driver's seat and coach unlocked. It won't be there long before it vanishes.

We once replaced a dishwasher in the house. The old unit ran but it was noisy. I put a sign on it that stated.....It runs, It is FREE. Set at the curb for a week and no takers. So, I changed the sign to read....It runs, $25.00..Inquire within. It vanished in about 3 hours and no inquiry.

Good luck,
Ken

Try putting it on Facebook marketplace with a low price or free. I've gotten rid of several things that way.

Maybe there is a RV demolition derby somewhere in the state or nearby.

If it's THAT BAD...Some guys scrap these type of things out and sell decent parts, but I live out near rural midwest. The old cat if still on there can be worth a bit as well. Had blown up Windstar van put for $300 on FB marketplace had to mark pending in 2hours had 25 in line. Those that offered way less and others ,all of a sudden started bidding over asking price.
But I see people buying and restoring gutted out travel trailers I wouldn't take for free when I was younger and broker.

I can't believe somebody wouldn't take it to make a flat body truck out of it.

X2 on running an ad and giving it away free or advertise the engine and say it comes in a large rolling shipping container (I've seen this many times with old 454 and 440 motor homes)

Be sure and get a title transfer, or you could end up paying for the disposal.
