Some Tips on Removing and Disposing of Old RV Furniture 5033

Maybe you want to update your RV’s furniture. Maybe you want to strip your RV of all furniture and start from scratch. Maybe you just want to make room for a new couch. Whatever the case, you have to know not only how to get your RV’s furniture out of your RV but also what to do with it once it is out of your unit.

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

When touring RVs, be sure to spend plenty of time in your favorites. Don't be afraid to sit down, lay on the bed, or stand in the shower.

When it comes to removing your RV’s furniture, it’s not as easy as simply pulling it out. RV furniture is anchored down to the floor and usually the wall. It’s also often built into the unit and not brought in after it’s constructed. This means you’ll have to disassemble the furniture in your RV in order to remove it.

Before you just start tearing things apart, take your time to understand how a piece of furniture goes together. Remove the cushions or any pillows and find all of the anchor points that hold the piece of furniture together and to the RV.

Once you understand how a piece of RV furniture is attached to the RV and how it goes together, you’ll need to take it apart, and this means using the right tools. In most cases, you should be able to remove RV furniture with some regular household wrenches and screwdrivers.

If you find that your RV furniture is stapled or nailed into place, it may be smart to take your RV to a professional to have the work done. Camping World’s service department can help with this.

You can just take your RV’s old furniture to the landfill or city dump, but that’s extremely wasteful, especially if that furniture is still nice but just not something you would want to have in your RV. There are other options.

One of the best options is to sell that furniture on Craigslist, eBay, or Facebook Marketplace. You might be surprised by what you can get for your old furniture on these sales platforms. Another option is to donate the furniture to someplace like Goodwill. If you do that, make sure the furniture still has some life left in it.

The final option is to talk to your local Camping World dealership. Camping World will remove and dispose of your old furniture.
