RV in decent condition...I don't think so.

I browse CL and Marketplace often and look at RV and other stuff. It never ceases to amaze me what some people's ideas of decent, clean, good, excellent, etc condition looks like. Here is the latest example. This RV is apparently in decent shape! I say a day away from the scrap yard...


RV in decent condition would be livable and driveable with some work. 70ft heavy duty all-weather cord to hook up to power source.
Needs to have roof retared and calked to stop any leaks.
Front upper cab needs some repair due to past water leak.
Asking $1200 MUST GO
Message me with any questions.
RV will need to be towed when purchased

I guess it all depends on your definition of "decent", but to me, that one would fall into the "worn" category...

And anyone who has high expectations of an RV with an asking price of $1,200.......................

Somehow I don't see how non-driving leaky and a $1,200 price tag is "decent condition". Maybe it should have said "decent condition for the price". Anyway it always has been "caveat emptor".

I agree. The smart money is driving junk to the scrap yard before it needs to be towed.

My first project was when I retired was to MIL single wide that had water damage. Everyone told me it was not salvageable.

With enough work and money it was but it could be livable again but it would still be a money pit that only the MIL would love.

Bought a TT and put it on her property to park next to our MH. MIL was happy, DW was happy.

I have two criteria for a project RV. No roof leaks and the cost to restore has to be less than what I could find the same thing in good condition.

I think that's what's called a "fixer-upper"!

There is W-I-D-E range of RV owners. The knowledge and thoughts behind condition and upkeep is really large. You see it in cars too but not even close to RV owners. I suppose boats would be similar? In my younger days this may have been enticing if it ran, drove, and it was free. $1200 and it needs a tow...good luck

Must be a mistake. Must have meant that if you tow it away, they will pay you $1200.

That's not a fixer upper that's a burner downer

Free would be way too expensive a price for that dog.

Maybe the radiator cap can be saved?

We have to remember there are some out there to whom that could be shelter/affordable housing.
