Where do all of the old parts go?

In the process of updating our 62 Tradewind I find that I am accumulating a lot of parts. I don't have space to store them, I don't want to send them to the land fill, I am about the worlds worst e-bayer, and I don't really like e-bay much anyway, and I need homes for them.
I have:
A Dometic refrigerator, gas only
A wall mounted gas heater
A gas stove top and oven
A weird roof mounted air conditioner(unlike the normal roof one on our Sovereign)
A large steel water tank
Two ancient butane tanks, the ones with pressure gauges on them
The master cylinder and actuator stuff for the hydraulic braking system
Gas Pressure regulator
Parts for the supports for the TV antenna holder.
An aftermarket gas water heater

I think that is it for now. As far as I can tell none of it is operational. I have not tested any of it, since electrical problems on the Tradewind prevent plugging it in. And I don't do experiments with butane.

I am sure I am breaking the hearts of Tradewind restoration purists, but I am trying to keep the shiny side up and on the road, so an update is the next best thing. Any one that needs some free parts, let me know and I will get a shipping quote.

If not, maybe someone can recommend an old parts rescue site that would keep them for future use or sale. Like I said, I just don't want them to go to the land fill.
cheers, bill b.

Put them up on the Classifieds. Free, and easy, and that's where people expect to see old parts.

If you mention free, I don't think you will have them very long at all!
