Looking for 16-17' camper

Getting ready to take the plunge! Looking for a Casita SD, FD 16' or 17' or similar model. Willing to do a little interior "cosmetic" work. Must be mechanically sound, super clean, with everything working. Year is not as important as condition and price. Budget is under $10,000. Prefer within a 4-5 hour drive of Charlotte, NC. SUV has just been set up to tow and is ready to go. Prefer dry wt. less than 2400 lbs. Must haves: bathroom, awning, furnace and a/c. Nice to haves: electric tongue jack.

If your camper is worth more and you need a tax deduction, please consider donating part of your equity. This is for a non-profit's use and we can provide a "tax letter" to you. We reconnect Military Families at therapeutic retreats located throughout the USA. Camper is for our Executive Director to use as most of our retreats are held at YMCA Camps that only have bunk house style lodging.

Just to jump in here (where, no doubt, I am not wanted) I don't believe there is any "Tax Incentive" for donating to a charity, only a deduction from ones taxable income based on the value of the donation.


I make mention of this because: Several years ago I offered a lady in New Mexico $5000 for a "Fixer" RV she had for sale. She made the decision to "Donate" it instead and tried to take a $12,000 deduction, a price one like hers, but in perfect condition, had sold for on eBay, thinking that she could save $12,000 in taxes.


As a result: 1) The IRS disallowed her deduction, because she didn't have a certified appraisal of the donation, and reduced it to $3500, which was current NADA book value and, 2) Even though she was in a higher tax bracket (about $25%) she only recovered about $875, rather than the $5000 I had offered.


In other words, if you donate a trailer appraised at $10,000, you can deduct that amount from your taxable income, saving from whatever tax bracket you are in. For example, if you are in the 15% tax bracket (High for most retirees), you will get a tax reduction of $1,500. If you don't have $10,000 in taxable income you will have to carryover part and distribute the deduction over several years. If, like many many other retirees, you have "0" taxable income, there is no tax savings available.


But now, seeing that the OP already obtained a Casita in Post #3, I have no idea whatsoever where this thread is going.

Hi Bob,

This may be more of an explanation than you need, however you raise a great point. I did speak incorrectly and should have said - if you want to donate all or part of the value of a Camper, then my non-profit would send a thank you for your donation letter. With "in kind gifts", I do not establish the value for tax purposes, the donor does. So the letter would be "thank you for your in kind gift.'. You are correct in that the burden of proof is on the donor - to look at appraised value and work with your tax person to determine what the IRS would or would not allow.

As for my purchase of the Casita, I did by one, which I own personally. If someone steps up to donate one to my non-profit, then I would sell my personal one. I have a very good friend who saw how I customized mine and offered to buy it on the spot. So it does get a little convoluted. My use of the Casita is 90% for the non-profit. (the other 10% personal use is taxable for me) We do therapeutic retreats that help military families reconnect. Since we use bunk houses that do not allow animals, I need a better place to stay, more comfortable bedding and a place for my service animal.

Again, my apologies for the lengthy response. In running a non-profit, I strive for complete transparency and your comments made me realize that this posting was not. So I thank you for bringing this to my attention. I will be much more clear going forward.

Lynn Miller
