I imagine someone would buy it as is. Like I said, the entire left side will have to come off. I may advertise it as is. I kinda want the genny but rather have #3k

Just thinking out loud, but maybe just glue and screw that left side? For that kind of money, could be great for a young family, that just wants to do some local camping

This is a real "shot in the dark" ! If you have the time, the talent and the energy to stick with a long term project, you could make a fair profit on this.

For giggles, contact RV ROOF INSTALL and see if they will give you a ball park quote. New roof, delamination side repair could easily cost >$20K, but it might be worth it !

If I could easily make $5,000 profit to flip the thing I might take it.
If I needed a cheep RV to get out and have fun I might take it and do the minimum to make road worthy.

Otherwise I advise the owner to place an ad in the freebie section of craigs list and let it go as is where is, bring your own tools and start battery.

Your friend wants it gone and so will you. Let him "part it out" when it is in his yard, not in your yard.

You could get the gen as one of the parts he is selling before it gets hauled away.

If all you really want is the generator, I would ask him for it.

If you were in the Chicago area, I would ask to donate the rig to Our Church's CARS Ministry. They would come and get it as-is. They would likely get it running and safe to drive, then put it up on eBay HERE. I have served as a volunteer mechanic and leader in that ministry for 23 years now. They do great things helping the under resourced with reliable transportation.

IF I had the space I would do the same, get it roadworthy and let the kids take it to the desert or whatever. As long as it was safe

and dry inside I know people that could care less about having everything in working order. Gut it and put in bunk beds and take

the whole tribe, use a working RV as the kitchen, man what great times that would be.

He is undergoing cancer treatment, so might be in a phase where he would want to give stuff away or see it go to some use as it is just stuff and means little to him. He has money so doesnt care about selling it, just does not want the extra stress in his life.

I have a young friend that is building out his passenger van so is interested to take a look at what he can salvage out of it too, so we will go soon, and I will try to start it then also.
