1971 Tradewind appliance, info please.

I am considering getting rid of the original stove, original refrigerator and original furnace. Are these things worth anything or should I send them to the trash?

It depends on the condition. The furnace I would just can. The fridge might still work but if it is like mine it is rusted and ugly. Stoves can last many years but most of them are fake stainless steel and rust like mad. It is best to put back gas/electric units like what came in the trailer to allow boon-docking. I would say they are not worth much unless in great condition. The older fridges are better in some ways. They don't need any power to run and there is no control board to go bad.

Thank you, I do plan on replacing to original specs, just looking for something more modern and space saving. I do not think we need an oven, we hardly use the one in our house.

The newer stoves have the oven built in and don't have a separate oven. It is something you can do without if you are camping and not staying in one place for months at a time. A microwave is going to be one of the most used cooking appliances now days.
