Finding RV Salvage Yards Indiana (RV Junkyards in Indiana)

One would think that Indiana being the home to many top RV makers, there would be a large supply of RV salvage yards. But the location of RV makers does not always influence local laws. The state government would have a say in how these businesses operate as well as where they can be located.

There is supposed to be an RV salvage yard right in Elkhart Indiana. It is called Cooper RV Salvage and if it is still operating, you can contact them through their phone number- 574-293-3027.

To learn more about this topic, and where RV salvage yards are located in the state, just continue to read our article. It delves into the topic so you have the best information to start your used part or another RV-related search

RV Salvage Yards in Indianapolis


We will provide a list of RV salvage yards that did not make the above two lists. As with other big cities, the focus for junkyards is more on cars and trucks and not RVs.

To find some RV junkyards in this city, you may have to use the local Yellow Pages and make a number of phone calls to see if they accept old RVs. Many do not advertise this part of the industry.

Buying Used RV Parts in Elkhart Indiana


This does not seem to be a problem, given all of the salvage yards for RVs in the city. You will have to use the phone numbers supplied above to contact them and see if they have the parts you want.

Or you can go to the yellow Pages for Elkhart and look under Used RV parts or RV Used parts and see what comes up on the results page. One of our searches turned up over 30 possibilities and you can see those at this link.

We always suggest calling first because while their ads may say they have certain parts, they may be out of stock at the time you visit. Save yourself some time, money, and effort, and call first.

If they don’t you just move on to the next used parts place on your list. You may find a lot of surplus stores in the city as well. Since Elkhart is the home to many famous RV brands, surplus parts seem to be a given.

The good thing about buying surplus is that like used, they are a bit cheaper in price but unlike used, they are still new parts. Surplus is a great way to get good parts that may still work.

That is the drawback of buying used. While you can save money, you still run the risk that the parts won’t work. There is also no guarantee that they won’t break down in the next week, month, or year.

Buying used is like gambling in Las Vegas, you never know what will happen after you spent your money and throw the dice.

RV Junkyards in Indiana


All the lists that we have come across have the above locations on them. There really is not much to add to those lists unless someone did not advertise and was omitted from inclusion.

If you want to cross the border into Michigan, there are three salvage or junkyards for RVs that may be helpful and close by. They are:

BONTRAGER'S SURPLUS PARTS - 18719 E US 12, White Pigeon MI 49099

616-483-7017, FAX 616 483-7786

Refrigerators, ranges, hot water heaters, and furnaces. Six salesmen.

BRAD'S RV INC. - 8636 Whitmore Lake Rd., Brighton MI 48116


Parts are available for Century trailers and Discoverer motorhomes.

GRABBER INDUSTRIES INC. - 19100 Fairchilds Rd, Constantine MI 49042


Other than that, you may be stuck with doing a local internet search to see if any are near your current location. Plus, if the town is small enough, you can always take an hour or two and drive the city to find what you are looking for.

Elkhart is The RV Home


Not only is this little city the home to the RV and MH Hall of Fame and Museum, but it is also home to some of the largest RV plants you will find anywhere in the world.

According to the Hall of Fame, there are over 100 RV plants making different Classes of RVs and trailers in this city. These 100 plants are owned and operated by about 30 to 40 top RV companies that make RVs and trailers for over 100 brands.

If you are going to find the part you need for your RV, Elkhart may be the best place to go to find new, used, and surplus parts. It is worth investigating when you have the time and can make this city part of your travel route.

Some Additional Words

Finding junkyards for RVs is not always the easiest thing to do no matter what state you are in. Most of these types of businesses focus on vehicles that are used the most and RVs, even though millions have been made, do not compete with cars and light trucks.

Finding an RV salvage yard can also be difficult because we have seen more than ten on these lists that have been crossed out due to business closures. These lists should get you a good start on this search.
