So glad I check the free stuff on Craigslist every day multiple times.

Today I hit the jackpot.
The impound lot in Orlando let me strip apart a damaged 1995 Fleetwood class A.
Two good windows, an ice machine, a stove/oven. a washer/dryer combo unit, stainless kitchen sink. Coulda got more but ran outta time and energy real fast.
Everything looks like it wasn't used a whole lot. A little cleaning and freshening and I've got some decent stuff for FREE!
Will post pics when I can. Only got a couple but tomorrow I'll take some pics of the sweet haul.

I scored some captains chairs and a bench from someones van on CL a month or two ago.
Far as I could tell the appliaces I got today look ok. I can buy a few more cans of Rustoleum Appliance epoxy now. I love that stuff.
For all the products of theirs I'll be using, Rustoleum should sponsor this thing!

I'm very sore, getting some of this stuff out was pretty brutal. It was in the 90's today too. The washer dryer combo about killed me. Wasn't much room to work in there, it was a real mess.

Good haul CB....I need to get over to my CL and see what I've been missing. Somehow, I just stopped going there.

I would love a washer/dryer combo, but possibly more in my dreams than taking up a space in my bus.

Lots of folks don't like the combo units but they're not so bad. Roxy is from Scotland and that's just all they use there.
I'm excited about the ice machine!

Ice machines are almost as good as ice cream machines

I'm racking my brain trying to figure out how to get the nearly mint condition 20 foot awning home 30 miles.
I also want to get all the window awnings and the leveling jacks.

Yes, Bansil, the ice maker is gonna be nice to have!

Assuming you don't have a truck, strap it to the roof of your car and flag it?

My car is either a 2002 Focus or a 2013 Subaru. Neither has a rack on it and the awning is at LEAST 20 feet.
even the neighbor's truck I used won't haul it.
We do have an f750 flatbed but at 3-4mpg it would be an expensive, uncomfortable trip through heavy Orlando traffic during business hours.
The guy said he will tow the rv to me for a hundred bucks but then I'll have to cut it into pieces, burn the non-metal parts and scrap whats left. too much work for an awning and a few bits.
