I was wondering the same thing a couple months ago... found a super cheap and trashed Airstream that had the door handle I wanted. The AS was only about $300 more than a new handle. I wondered about purchasing the trailer - strip and redistribute
parts and then scrap the rest (as I have no real ability to store a second trailer). Thankfully, folks on this forum helped me repair my handle! Curious though on the salvage return. How about the copper in the old plumbing
- thieves stripped the copper from a neighbors 100' HG extension cord (leaving the remain in their driveway). sigh.
