Removing and Disposing of Old RV Furniture
If you are thinking about upgrading the furniture in your RV, you have to start by removing the old RV furniture. No matter if you want to remove just one or two pieces or completely strip your rig and start from scratch, you have quite the task in front of you. Once you have decided on what you want to do, you have to not get your RV’s old furniture out but also find out what to do with it once it ‘s finally out.
This might seem pretty self-explanatory, but there are a few tricks and tips that can help you along the way. Let’s take a look at what you’ll need to know.
RV Furniture Removal
Though it may come as no surprise, removing RV furniture is not as easy as just pulling it out. RV furniture is anchored to the floor and usually to the wall as well. Sometimes RV furniture is even built into the unit itself. Because of this, removing RV furniture means you will have to completely disassemble it in order to get it out of your rig.
Don’t start just tearing things apart though. You will want to really take your time to understand how each piece of furniture fits together. Take off all cushions and pillows, find anchor points, and get to know how your RV furniture is put together.
Once you have an understanding of how a piece of RV furniture is attached and how it was assembled, you can then start taking it apart. As far as tools go, you should be able to use regular household wrenches and screwdrivers to accomplish your furniture removal goals.
If you find that your RV furniture is nailed or stapled into place, or you are having issues removing any pieces, it would be smart to take your RV to a professional to get the job done. The RV furniture experts at Bradd & Hall can help you with this.
RV Furniture Disposal
Disposing of your old RV furniture isn’t as simple as throwing in the trashcan outside of your home. Your trash pickup isn’t likely to take furniture, and even if they did, it is still very wasteful. Taking old RV furniture to the local landfill may seem like the easy answer, but if that furniture is still in even halfway decent condition there are other, better, options out there.
One of your best options is to try to sell the old furniture on Facebook Marketplace, Ebay, or Craigslist. You may be surprised by what people will buy, and it never hurts to get some extra cash for the furniture you planned on trashing anyways.
If you can’t sell your old RV furniture, you can always donate it to a local thrift store. When deciding on donation though, make sure the furniture is in decent condition. Your local thrift store is not a stand in for the local dump!
If none of these options work for you, then go ahead and give us a call at Bradd & Hall and one of our technicians will be able to help you with all of your RV furniture needs.
