Source for Appliances

Hello,

I was reading posts and looking at some other sources on the net and found a site that sells salvage RVs and trailers.

There are a couple RV's and trailers that were involved in roll overs. While the outside was pretty heavily damaged the insides didn't look all that bad other than things being thrown about.

Would they be a good source for appliances? Has anyone done this?

I've seen that site, I'm pretty sure.
Their prices weren't too attractive, at least the site I was looking at. Got a link?

There are a lot of people scrapping out used campers and motor homes, and they usually put proud prices on the appliances or whatever is resell-able beyond scrap value. Remember most of these scrappers are actually being paid to haul RVs and campers away from someone's home. Obviously there is a market for these used appliances and other items but I'd use the resellers as a last resort, primarily because they have the highest prices.

Doc, no warranty. After looking at these I see the prices are pretty high. At first a salvage trailer for $2000.00 seemed cheap but now that I think about it for the items you would get out of it you wouldn't spend $2000 anyway.

Fridge
Stove
Some furniture
Shower/Bath

Kind of answered my own question, probably should have researched more before I asked. Nice talking with you all anyway.

BTW it's Buy Used Cars, Salvage Auto at RideSafely Wholesale Auction
