Colaws Inventory / Junk Yard info 7/19/04

Remembered to take my camera this time. I tried to take an exterior picture of any Airstreams that still had windows, or any exterior salvageable parts. There are a TON of pics, so keep checking while I download them.

Another successful trip for me. Lots of window locks, ($10 each) a new fridge, light switches, and mirror brackets.

Unfortunately I was not able to accomodate any requests from those of you who called me. Just couldn't find what ya needed...and what I did finally found was bent beyond belief.

I hope these pics are helpfull....If you see anything that you might need, call colaws, and ask for

DUANE GRIFFITH
877-548-2125
10389 Cimmaron Rd. (Right off Exit 22 on 44 .... West side of MO)
Carthage, MO
64836
Mon - Fri 8 a.m. - 5 p.m.
Sat - 9 a.m. - 3 p.m.


Hope this is helpfull to you all.

It's Excella HEAVEN here... I would say 2/3 to Half of the airstreams there are Excella's....Makes me afraid that they aren't as stable as the rest....????Hmmm..

I think it is awesome that you took the time to take pictures~!! Being 500 miles or better from colaws, it is a treat to see an A/S jink yard. I think I'll do the same a Camper World near Birmingham AL next month.

The last photo in post # 8, the remains on the left have an interesting history. It was a brand new 34' slide out that was rolled so close to the factory that the tires' paper labels were still on the treads.

The slide out was purchased by an RV dealer who had a couple of damaged Airstreams. Last I heard, he was still trying to locate someone who would engineer and install the slide in an 80-something 28' unit.

I got the shocks. Interestingly, one of them was absolutely dead - no valving action at all, even though brand new.

Oh, and it still has perfect rear curtain, which can just be made out in the back. The wheels were sold long ago, and I thought the axles were as well, but looks like they are still there. Three axles with less than 100 miles on them.

I saw a class A over there one time that had been t-boned by a semi. The semi hit just behind the passenger's seat, and the impact made a large, square hole on the curb side. The impact caused the slide out on the other side to pop clear of the vehicle - and it was gone missing in action. The effect, viewed from the side, was as if the semi had passed completely through.

Speaking of SOB's, one should not forget that a lot of stuff we use is used by other makers as well. Stoves, refrigerators, generators, furnaces, water heaters, etc., etc. Colaw's gets a lot of this stuff in near new condition, as RVers have a tendency to total out in the first months of ownership. Sad, but true.

But one should always understand "caveat emptor" when dealing in salvage.
