When things started falling apart all on their own, what did the manufacturer have to say about it? Surely there was some type of warranty.

Any thought of listing it for sale? it might be easier to sell it now by providing a proof of purchase notarized to seller, than continue to pay on loan until its done.


And this "proof of purchase" indicates there is a lien holder? Who would buy under this condition?

Someone who doesn't understand what a "lien holder" is and why that means that they aren't really buying what they think they are buying.

DMJ, sorry to hear your on hard times. Not our place to ask or judge, however, to your question? Yes it can be repoed. Yes it will be more of a challenge with a busted leg.
But even if they don’t, ultimately you’re on the hook just the same.
If you actually have credit worth saving and a life that will count on that credit, you will not come out ahead on getting it repoed.
Financially it seems you might be able to fix it and sell it and only eat part of the cost of getting rid of it. But that depends on the condition of the rest of it and how saavy you are at making that happen and if you can float the difference financially somehow.
If it’s remotely an option, the next 30 days may be the beat market you’ve ever had to dump that turd on someone else.

I am sympathetic. Travel lite is junk. In addition to my 1993 Sunline truck camper, which has never been a problem, I purchased a new Travel lite trailer in 2017. Every time we use it something breaks. Two weeks ago the refrigerator fell out into the floor of the trailer. The one screw holding it in let loose.

OP, welcome to this forum... some pretty tough people on here, me included on occasion... not this time. Unfortunately you posted “ I'm prepared to let my credit sink and tell the bank to come get it.” and that attitude plus it’s not that simple, stirred the pot. You’ll have to pay costs and the difference in what they auction it off for... not a good option which will cost you $$$.

*Agree I could have it on a rollback and gone in 5 minutes.

This post is my opinion (free advice). It is not intended to influence anyone's judgment nor do I advocate anyone do what I propose.

I suppose you came on here expecting people to share in your frustration, commiserate, sympathize, but this is an online forum mostly populated by older conservative types who believe in making good on your obligations regardless of whether it's to your advantage or not. For starters.

But yeah, "they" can repossess anything. Where there is a will there is a way. That, and a rollback with a strong winch. Or, enough snatch blocks.

To the OP. Always come to this forum well-prepared. If not, bring your own cross and nail. People here and be brutal and I don't mean brutally honest, just brutal.

Kind of like a lynching. Next time, or still, bring specifics, pictures, etc. Even then I recommend bringing the cross and nails.
