RecreationalSalvage.com is a subsidiary of T. S. Recreational Inc. We deal strictly with recreational rebuildables, perfect for your next project. T.S. Recreational was founded in 1995 by our present owner Todd Simison. Todd’s experienced background in the recreational business dates back to the early 80s when he and his family owned a local marine, snowmobile and motorcycle business. Use our experience and work with our local and trustworthy staff of experts to find your next project.

Like any vehicle auction, the recreational vehicles on our website come from many different places. Some failed to sell at a dealership, sometimes these vehicles are damaged by severe weather, some have significant mileage on them to prevent them from being rented or leased again, and others come to us from insurance companies who have totaled the vehicle. Once the insurance company pays the person the value of their coverage, the car then becomes their property. RecreationalSalvage.com deals directly with many major insurance companies throughout the states of Minnesota, North Dakota and South Dakota. Auctions allow anyone who isn’t afraid of repairs an incredible deal on popular brands of recreational vehicles. The best part is, you don’t have to be a dealer to register to bid on wrecked, damaged, and repairable vehicles in our action. Plus, registration is FREE!

Our main office is open on a year-round basis. Online auctions will begin on the first Monday of the month in February, March, July, August, September, and October. Our huge inventory of recreational vehicles are sold in the USA and worldwide.
