How to Dispose of Your Old Camper

Buying a new camper is wonderful. They can allow you to enjoy the freedom of the open road with all the amenities of your home. But, when its time to dispose of them, they can seem like more of a hassle than anything else

Often, it can seem like there’s just no easy way to get rid of it. So, let us show you a few ways you can deal with the old metal monster with little to no difficulty.

Donate It

One of the best ways to dispose of your old up camper is by donating it. It’s a great way to get rid of a camper you’re no longer using while helping out a good cause. There are several charitable organizations that would be glad to accept your donation, so you should be able to find one that you wish to help. Also, in addition to helping out a good cause, you will be helping the environment by keeping your camper out of the garbage dump.

You should be able to fill out a form online if you decide to donate, or you could call instead. Then, the organization should contact you for any additional information they need as well as to arrange for pick up. They will likely pick up the camper from your place and give you a receipt you can use for your taxes.

Refurbish It

If you enjoy DIY projects, you could fix up the camper. There are a lot of things you could do with it, depending on the size. You could use it for an office or a spare bedroom. Or if you fix it up really nice, you may even be able to rent it out.

If you have kids, it could be a family project. You could fix up the carpet and furnishings and even add some things, such as some appliances. If you have kids, they may enjoy helping to decorate it.

Sell the Parts

If you don’t think the camper is in good enough shape to donate or fix up, you may at least be able to sell some of its parts. There are always other people fixing up a camper that need parts and may be willing to buy your camper parts. This could be mechanical parts or some of your furniture. Once you take the camper apart, you could sell some parts to scrap yards. With the parts already removed, you should be able to get a bit more money as it’s less work for the scrap yard.

Have it Hauled Away

It could be that you can’t donate or refurbish your camper, but dismantling it is just too much work. So, you may find the best option is to have it hauled away. At Boston Junk Removal, we’d be glad to help you with this. You’ll want to make sure you remove anything you want to keep. But, if it has been sitting unused for a while, you’ll want to make sure no snakes or other dangerous animals are inside before entering it. Also, take care that it is not too broken down to safety move around in. Once you’ve safely removed your belongings, just give us a call.


An old camper can be a real hassle to deal with, but hopefully, now you have a few ideas on how you can dispose of yours. Whether it’s by donating, selling for parts, or having it hauled away, it will feel great to be rid of the old eyesore.
