I guess it would depend on how long I had the unit and if the stuff I wanted to take with me would change the price I would get for the unit. Since we just installed an automatic satellite dish with two receivers and DVR, I would probably take those with me, unless the new buyers paid for othe new equipment just installed. Since most of the mods we have done are pretty permanent (vent fans on top, extra fire extinquishers, new hardware, etc.), I would leave them and adjust selling price accordingly as I think those type of mods increase the value. But, I am a newbie, so what do I know?

When we traded in our old trailer for a new one, I kept the batteries as they were only 3 years old. Everything else that was not a personal item went with the trailer.

I sold the camper as-is with the TVs and covers. A vent cover is $35 on EBay and a new LED is $100, not chump change but a nice gesture to the new owners.

Everything it did not come with starting with my Hensley hitch, never gave a thought to taking the propane tanks or the spare tire but they have always come with the units I have had through the years.

Just took personal items and my 8 homemade stabilizer bars and 1 of the 2 new batteries. They got it just as I did when it was new. Did leave the vent covers.

I just sold my old trailer with plans to upgrade so I removed my upgraded water hose and left the original. Removed the upgraded RINO hose and picked up a basic sewer hose. The original I'd stored away was a write-off. Removed the pressure regulator and elbow fitting that I bought and. a 30amp extension cord. All things I'd be using with the new trailer I wanted to keep. I was on the fence to keep the WD hitch for the new trailer but the new owner asked about it so I included it for a couple hundred dollar. I was looking at getting a Reese dual-cam sway set-up and the bars weren't quite right anyhow. I'd added a Maxx air to my last 2 trailers and left it both times. Once its installed it's almost not worth the $40 I paid to remove it.

I leave it as I found it. I typically clean it top to bottom. I don't leave anything that isn't installed and I don't believe I've ever removed anything attached.

I'd remove any personal items and anything that isn't bolted down. Hoses, rug, awning lights, etc. (I consider these "personal items.") Anything that is permanently attached, or meant to be permanently attached stays. If I were buying a used camper I would sure want the propane tanks and the spare tire included in the deal. If I'm buying a new camper, I want new stuff.
