If you buy it new, you will pay through the nose.
I waited and waited and waited to get what I needed. I still do not have it all but I cannot afford to buy the stuff from a dealer right off of the shelf.
Be patient and keep looking. Put your feelers out and in no time you will get what you need.

decisions

everyone i am in need of a little help in deciding whether to keep working or part out my 2000 34' excella.

not sure if i can get any where close to my money back out of her by parting her out. also i want to go camping this year and it just doesn't look like i will get her together.

to part i would have:

oak panel frigde
dinette
sofa
windows
3 axles
3 sets of aluminum rims and tires
airconditioner
furnace
fantastic fan
then of course i would have the scrap aluminum (any one now $ / ton and how many tons)
there is also the steal frame at $100 / ton probably not even a ton here though.

there should be some month old pics in my gallery please give your thoughts.

You would have a lot more than that little short list to part out my friend and if you have the time and the inclination you could make surely enough to get a good down payment on another trailer.

The big problem is time and space to part out - many people would pick up the parts and with today's bus shipping the costs are very reasonable to ship in most cases.

We have something that might help you out - I will PM you shortly.

part vs sell as whole

if i was wanting to net 5k or so from the excella do you think i should try to sell it as a whole or would i have a better chance getting this kind of dough in parts? after all i bought it as a whole. and it was still a good deal i just am not going to get her put together in time to go camping. i am just torn on my decision here so the more feedback i get in any way will give me some help thanks to everyone.
