Prepare Your Non-Op Vehicle for Transport

There is much less preparation required for those interested in shipping a non-op RV. You responsibilities are often reliant on the RV’s condition. However, if the RV suffers from incomparable damage, you may only need to provide the transporter a condition report and various documents proving your ownership.

If possible, have all fluids drained from the RV. Secure any loose parts, windows, doors and other features that may open up during the vehicle’s travels with the transport company. If there are loose parts due to the condition of the RV, the transporter will secure anything the feel necessary. They will not be held responsible for any damages if the RV is already considered a non-op. You can ask the transporter if they provide any type of protection at all for the transport of a non-operable RV.
