|1977 Dodge Delta 440||Leslie||1-10-13|
|We have a 1977 Dodge Delta RV with a 440. It unfortunately suffered damage when our house caught fire last month, and subsequently caught the RV on fire. A local scrap yard is willing to pay us for it, but I'm needing to know the weight of it (all appliance, cabinets, wiring removed) just to ensure I don't get snowballed by said scrap yard!|

|Weight Doesn't matter because you will not get paid "Clean Metal" scrap price.|
An assembled RV is worth much much less to a scrap yard versus the metals in it. So basically they are going to pay what they want to.
This is because they will have to put time into disassembling it or if they can get away with it your area burning it to recover just the metals.
The fridge is particularly problematic as if it is punctured by the crane operator he can be harmed by the amonia. And the intentional release of the gas is ileagal where I live.
