CAMPER FOR SALE: 32-foot Heartland camper model 3200 FK. The owner used this for the last 13 months while his home Down East was being rebuilt after Hurricane Florence. He will deliver it and set it up including the flexible drain hose and the necessary connections.  The camper has two large propane tanks, which are used for cooking and hot water.  The heater is propane fed; the water heater is both gas and electric.  King-size bed in master bedroom; lots of storage.  The shower is a step-in unit with a swing-out shower door.  It also has a sofa/sleeper double bed and small dining area.  It has been a lifesaver being right next to our house during reconstruction. For details, contact Michael Rose:

Free car
I am getting a new car and would like to donate my current car to somebody on Ocracoke in need. It is shabby white 2008 VW Rabbit Hatchback with 140K miles. It has a long list to cosmetic/aging flaws (sunroof doesn’t work, interior headliner peeling, etc.) but mechanically it is solid and I still drive it on long trips as recently as August to Ocracoke. I would prefer to donate it to an organization (who could then give it to an individual) and I would prefer it be picked up in Alexandria, VA. If you think there is interest, please contact me. If not, that’s fine too. Pictures of cars of the same year/model are at  Thanks. Jason Dechant, Alexandria, Virginia 703-861-4493
