1984 chevy executive (p30) 30 ft long, under 10 ft high.
currently sitting in the culpeper walmart parking not. spoke to the manager and he said it was cool, but that was hours ago. rv missing windshield, battery. just purchased and needing to make it to atlanta. looking to see which companies are most affordable. any suggestions would be appreciated.
updating the original post to be more in line w the guidelines. please also advise of places that will come get rv for donation.
need to store or figuring local tow would be much more affordable than tow to atlanta.

Just purchased and needing windshield, battery and a 600 mile tow? Interesting. Are all tires good? Tags, registration, plates all up to date? Insurance?

How did that scenario ever come to be? You drove it there without a windshield or battery? Got vandalized? Do you have insurance? Sorry, very confused.


What I post is my 2 cents and nothing more. Please don't read anything into my post that's not there. If you disagree, that's OK.
Can't we all just get along?

He's posted like this before - bought an RV but can't get it to Florida (yet his profile says he's in San Diego) and is trying to sell/trade/gift it.

A tow from Culpeper VA to Atlanta GA may cost more than the coach might be worth. One way miles to Atlanta is 500 plus and over eight road hours away. The operator could demand round trip cost to include overnight accommodations in Atlanta due to CDL road time limits for the driver.

Buying older rigs that might not be road worthy then using the Scarlett O'hara survival plan (rely on the kindness of strangers) to get it to your project home based isn't going to work out well long or short term.

That’s an understatement. A typical heavy tow of 500 miles would be about $7 / mile or $3,500.

You *might* find someone with a lowboy trailer that would do it for a little less, but not much. They know what the alternative costs and aren’t going to leave much change on the table.

1. the shipping quote was $6800
2. not trying to sell it on another thread. trying to trade it for classC (read carefully)
3. anybody on here can have it if they want; walmart will be towing it soon anyway
4. I didn't drive it there. I got it at auction dirt cheap ($235 after fees) and figured I could use it for my non-profit so I drove up to look to tow it back. I saw the photos but didn't realize towing would be so expensive. My tow from Tampa (with the other one) was only $1100.

I realize this may seem to you all to be a scam. Ask away with your questions, doubts, and jeers. Still: if anyone is near the Culpeper Walmart, PM me. I'll let you know where I hid the keys and the title. Thanks in advance, good people.

My location is listed as San Diego, but it should actually say Atlanta. Please someone let me know how I can modify this. Clicking on "edit profile" does not give the option to change. I've asked the admins as well. Thanks!
