The Great American Road Trip is a rite of passage for so many American families. Routines usually include packing up the car, picking a direction to head in, and starting the long drive. Stopping at whatever sights you find along the way, getting a taste of regional cuisines and cramming into small hotel rooms is all part of the game. If you have an RV, then you get to travel the country in style and comfort.
RVs offer everything from a place to sleep when it’s mounted onto a pickup truck, to a fully-contained home-on-wheels. But like all vehicles, no matter how well you take care of them, there is a shelf life.
So what are your options when your RV has hit the end of the road? There are several options to consider, the most obvious being trading it in or selling it. But while donation is an extremely popular option for your car, you may not realize that you may be able to donate your RV as well.
Here are some of the benefits of donating your RV to Wheels For Wishes benefiting Make-A-Wish.
It’s Easier And Safer Than Trading In Or Selling Your RV Yourself
All of the hassle that is typically associated with getting rid of an unwanted RV is handled for you. No paying for and posting listings. No dealing with set up times for potential buyers to view the RV. No haggling or price wars. No producing maintenance logs or waiting for a buyer to have their mechanic look it over. All you have to do is pick up the phone and call 1-877-431-9474 or fill out an online form and set up a pick-up time for the tow company. You don’t even have to be home when the pick-up happens! It is just that simple.
You Receive The Maximum Tax Deduction
You can write off the donation in the next tax season for the value your RV sold for at auction or $500, whichever is greater. You don’t even need to call an accountant or be a tax expert; to learn more – visit our tax answers page for answers to all of your tax questions.
Once you decide to donate, you can have your RV picked up within a couple of days. Wheels For Wishes will take almost anything with a motor, so you can get rid of your car, motorcycle, truck or boat with minimal hassle.
It Can Help Children In Your Community
With each donation we receive, we make sure that the proceeds from your motorcycle donation stay local by benefiting your community’s Make-A-Wish chapter. By donating your RV, you can enjoy the pride of knowing you helped grant a wish to a child in your city who was diagnosed with a life-threatening medical condition.
Live With Less Clutter
Think of how much more room you’ll have in your garage or driveway! Once your RV has been donated, you can bask in the joy of knocking that pesky 'to-do' off your list and making extra room in your garage or driveway. No longer will you feel guilty for not driving it more often. Instead, enjoy a simpler life with less clutter, while helping a child that might be able to have their wish come true.
