Have you given any thought that someone with access had involvement? Employee, manager, owner, an associate of one of the before mentioned? Just a thought.

Yes, to be honest I do believe it was either an employee, ex employee, contractor, customer, or at least someone who had been there multiple times. I am going to follow up with the police on Monday and see what they found out so far, but as I said earlier, I didnt get the impression they're going to spend too much time on it. Hopefully i am wrong.

I think you are right. If a security camera was out it was put out and left that way for a while as a plan, or that someone knew the camera was out and that they couldn't be seen. I'm betting on the camera was disabled and left that way for a while. After it wasn't repaired, they finished the plan. Yep, an employee. They had to know what was visible by looking at the camera in the building.

So many places they could take the trailer with no need to register it. Mexico, deer camp, meth lab, North Dakota frackin fields. List goes on and on. Doesn't sound like much to go on.

Hope your insurance covers it so there is minimal loss to you. Of course the inconvenience is never covered by insurance.

Although I still would love for them to find our beloved 32BHDS, we went out looking at campers today (what a beautiful day here in east TN). Much to my surprise, they had a model that we really loved with everything we would have selected. So, we went ahead and put a deposit on it, with the stipulation that if mine is recovered my deposit will be refunded in full.

So, this way we won't miss the whole season. I took in a quote from RV direct, and they got to within 1500 bucks of it. Considering I would have spent a full weekend getting it and at least 700 in gas I thought that was pretty reasonable.

It is a 2012 32TSBH seems like a great floor plan for the kids. The extra room in back is nice, but I am really going to miss my rear "garage". I'm sure we will really love it, but would still rather have our original one back.

The 32bhds & 32tsbh have great layouts. Do you think you would miss the bathroom door and outdoor kitchen, though? One trip out, we couldn't believe how much the fridge & bathroom door was used.

Ours didnt have the outdoor kitchen - it wasnt available in 2009. Even if it was, I don't know I would have got it - I always loved the storage area (what I called the "garage"). The bathroom door is a great feature, but with 6 kids, the huge room in the back is even more important.

We will miss the pantry next to the fridge too - but the 8 cu fridge is a nice add.

Sorry to hear about the loss of your trailer. I was wondering if you had any toll bridges that may have recorded a truck and trailer going over it the night of the theft. There's not lots of people pulling trailers in the middle of the night I would think. It might record a license plate of your trailer and also the thief's license plate. Sounds like you your taking the right approach. Good luck.

Wondering if when you store the trailer take the breakaway pin out that would leave the wheel locked. Most people do not think about this... Just a sneaky idea to try and slow someone up... I would take the pin with me and put it in my glove box then replace it when I hitch up.. seems simple enough...

Not a good idea. Excessive battery drain will kill the battery in no time. The break away system is only meant for a relatively short duration.

I totally understand now! 6 kids WILL BE very comfortable in that bunkhouse. We just have the 3 and an occasional stray!
