Easiest way is to ping Ronnie a message from within Airforums (http://www.airforums.com/forums/memb...20-108929.html). If you type ronnie320 into the recipient box in the message page, that should reach him and forward him a message to his email saying there is a message waiting.

If anyone is interested, no key, but that should be easy for a locksmith to replace if you have your original key to find the blank.

Sent the seller a message yesterday and he said the person that bought it has stuck him with 300.00 on storage fees so far because they want let him work on the Airstream at the salvage yard and they want it moved.

.....same as any parts vehicle, someone will get left with the carcass, and that is going to cost money to get rid of!

If you mean junkyard as in taking away the scrap, the issue is our motorhomes are aluminum (that they want), steel (that they don't really want, but will take) and loads of non-metal (mainly wood and plastic) that they simply will not take. If you want to break the scrap down to clean metal you can get rid, anything else cost you to take away.

However if you mean places that buy damaged vehicles and part them out, there are, but they will only buy what they know the can sell.

In this case you are looking at $1K in re-sale value for the rear pano set, $500-700 for each slider (more for the cockpit sliders), plus Bob's wheels at $300 a pop, plus all the bits and pieces (door, locks, etc), and at least $500 for Nick's steering wheel () so there is money to be made but a huge amount of effort to complete the task of striping and getting rid.

PS I forgot at least a grand for Bob's couch!!!!!

Back in 2010 we purchased an 86 345 that was wrecked in front (worse than the current subject). Paid $2000 + $1200 delivery covering 800 miles.

It was purchased for much needed spares for the 310 and the rest was sold and/or given away. In the end we pretty much broke even on the value of parts sold.

What's not accounted for is the massive amount of time and effort it took for me to dismantle it. Dealing with the various buyers wasn't bad and I got to meet a few of them.

Dealing with the scrap was a whole different story.

Bottom line, you won't make money breaking one apart and you better have the facilities and equipment to deal with the mess. Fortunately I had the facilities and equipment.

Yeah, a massive effort for sure and costly. I suppose long term, youíve got to question the best way to keep these things going. I am relying on 3D printing innovation
