My sister and BIL had their popup in their side yard (to the right of their driveway) last year right before we were scheduled to go camping. My niece was home and noticed 2 guys back into their driveway and start to hook up to the camper. She opened the door and that was enough to scare them away or they were certainly stealing the popup.

OK, Here you go.... $49 a year and it tells you where it is. You can hide it and hard wire it to a 12Volt cable in your TT (second model). If they cut or disconnect your battery cables, it has a 3 year battery life in one of its modes. Gives you an automatic update once a day as to where it is located. It can be accessed for location also. You may even get a discount on your TT insurance. Put a lock on it and one of these units you are covered. Just do not put a sticker on it that says it has an alarm, as they may have one of those cool cell phone signal jammers... everyone should have one for driving and watching reactions to texting drivers..

You should be able to sleep at night with this.

That is a pretty good deal. I sure could have used it two times now.
Having one hidden on my $15000 race modified, uninsurable motocross bike would have brought a smile to my face while someone's chickletts where laying on the pavement.

There are probably good reasons why RV's aren't stolen nearly as often as other vehicles.

Most people steal cars to take them apart and sell the parts or just for a joyride. Selling entire stolen cars has become more and more difficult and risky with embedded VIN and serial numbers inside engine blocks and transmissions, etc. Its also become more difficult to register or insure a stole car because it's harder to fake VIN's and other identifying info with the massive amount of data that is shared between various agencies and the insurance industry.

I suspect selling a stolen RV is just as hard, even a towable. And there isn't that much market for used RV appliances or trailer tires to create a chop-shop industry for RVs.

So if they are stolen, I suspect its either a very stupid thief OR as has been said above, someone who's stealing it for themselves, to hide away as a hunting trailer or something.

I'm not surprised that most thefts that do occur happen around homes, not often in campgrounds. I think most of us RVers look out for each other. I know if I saw a family pull their RV into a site next to me then drive off to sight see or whatever - then I saw someone else hooking up their rig, I'd say something, call a ranger etc. And since there is usually only one way in/out of a campground - and it's frequently by a ranger station or stand - it would be risky to pull a stolen rig out of a campground. You have nowhere to run if the entrance is blocked by a ranger.

I do like that Snagg tracking device however - may have to think about that for my new F150.

My son had a utility trailer stolen from his yard. Most of them are easy pickings as they are left without any locks.
In our community I read all the police reports daily. The majority of auto break-ins are in unlocked vehicles.
Common sense is in short supply.

One of the main issues for TT's unlike automobiles is that there is that in the code for cars/trucks, you can decipher the mfr, model, engine, paint color.... from the VIN. In the RV industry this does not exist, so you could actually take the VIN of a TT and pretty much make your own VIN and sales paper work to get it sold or registered. The VIN on my TT is on a sticker that is half faded by the sun already. With computer graphics software you can make up your own sticker and put it on the TT, edit the sales slip with a different name, VIN... Pick a state where it would be easiest to slip the newly titled TT in and you are pretty much done.

Theft of suitcases is not uncommon in hotels and airports, and not because people want suitcases. My fifth wheel is one BIG suitcase.
Golf clubs, tools, electronics, guns, money, you never know what one contains.
