I hope it will be found in one piece. I really hate thieves.

Wow. Sorry to here this. I've seen hitch locks on trailers around here but only heard of work trailers being stolen. It makes me think about a hitch lock for my 5th W.

That really sucks. I think we need the middle east approach to property crimes, cut their #$%^ hands off.

This really chaps me. I'm sorry to hear you've been the victim of some scumbag(s) who feel it's ok to take from others rather than work for their own. One thing your misfortune does though is heightens my awareness. I'm going to beef up my coupler lock and I might even carry a big chain for the wheels.

I keep our TT at a good storage lot with high fences, on-site security, lights, cameras, and keypad entrance but what about when you're out camping and you decide to go off for the day? Dang... and I used to think I was going overboard when I would chain my motorcycle trailer to the steel tie-downs!

I am sorry to hear that not only is this stressing out you, it also ruined your son's birthday. I cannot think of a thing that will make that part okay.

I hope the insurance makes good. I also hope those that did this are found and prosecuted to the full extent of the law.

Please give your son a hug from our family and wish him a happy birthday.

Sorry to hear about your loss. I would love to catch someone who steals from me .......... but that's another story. I like the idea of a GPS locator but would like to find one that works using lithium batteries so that you don't need any sort of power and they would last for up to 5 plus years regardless of weather. We use lithium batteries in security systems in the oil patch here in Alberta in remote areas. They may be available but I have not done a Google search to confirm.

Sorry for ya!I just hate thieves.we are also in the selfstorage business and have cameras.I had a vandalism incident a few years back and my wife & I could both id the punk(small town,everybody knows everybody) but the local "barney fife" we have said just not good enough facial photos to use.He called the guys name when he drove up by the design of his "tag" he sprayed painted on our buildings.
There are some pretty inexpensive "real time" gps tracking systems availible and considering how much we have invested sounds like a good idea if you have to rent storage site.
P.S.:no offense to the many hard working men/women in LE.Our small town just seems to hire police that need to be doing something else.

What in the world woudl they do with it?

I have to wonder what in the world some one would do with a stolen TT. Parting it out seems like more work than what it is worth, Might as well get a real job..
I never really heard of TT being stolen in my 60+years. I must not get out that much...

Very sorry to hear this news. I hope they catch the ones responsible, but if itís anything like here, even if brought to court, they will get off with a slap of the wrist. Iím sure your son will be very sad about no camping for the birthday weekend. I do hope you had insurance coverage, but that wonít cover the emotional loss.
