Possible parting of 20' Argosy

This weekend I uncovered frame damage due to rust and I am not up to fixing it. The unfortunate part of my decision is that the trailer is in fine condition (except for the frame) and it is deserving of the fix, but I rent a lot to store the trailer and an economical home repair job impossible because of zoning restrictions. I don't know how to weld or I would do it myself. Seventy five percent of the exterior paint has been removed by sanding. The end caps are freshly painted. The belly pan is gone. A trailer repair facility says they won't do the frame because of the liability.
I am considering selling all parts of the trailer.
1. All bath, kitchen and salon cabinets and fixtures are excellent.
2. Both pull-out couches are excellent and the fabric is brand ($951) new in Sage color to go with the Avacado green sink, stove and countertop.
3. Stove, refrigerator, sink.
4. Brand new curtains from the folks in SW Florida ($345).
5. Tanks, airconditioner, lights.
I could go on, but don't want to spend a great deal of time listing what we all know about: Airstream/Argosy parts!
If anyone is interested in my offerings, please let me know (this thread). I would like to make a decision soon.
The trailer is located in Richmond, Virginia, but I am willing to discuss delivery and prices. I know of one trip to Atlanta at the end of July.
Rick

Don't part it out, you'll find a taker for the whole lock, stock and barrel.

Interested in Argosy

How much do you want for the whole thing? What would it cost to get it to Denver, CO?

Freight rates are usually $1.50 per loaded mile plus hookup.

If this gets parted out, i am in need of some odds and ends as well.

Bathroom light switch knob, cabinet door latch, etc. some others as well. Would consider a few of the big items like the stove and Refrig if in good shape.
