Yup - 14 to boy, 13 yo girl, 10 yo boy, 7 yo girl, and town girls that are 3. Now that the kids are bigger, the bigger bunkhouse will be nice. May even be the place for family movies on weekends with weather that doesnt cooperate.

A power tounge jack and levelers will be new too - never had either. Probably will start a new thread on that later.

As for the toll booths, we don't have any in TN, as a matter of fact almost none in the whole southeast, except FL.

Nice to ear when something sour turns sweet in the end.. I hope your insurance covers everything completely. Your situation has caused my husband and I to start looking at whether we have appropriate coverage for our trailer.

Was thinking about another way to discourage thieves from taking your camper. I know it would be a PITA, but what about buying a good set of jack stands that will take the weight of your trailer, and removing all the wheels and tires for the winter storage season ? Additional benefits would be that the tires would be storable at home out of the weather and sun, and the weight would be off them for the whole off-season. I know this would not work for those who don't really have an "off season", but for the rest of us who need to winterize, it sure would discourage theft of your unit.

This looks a little pricey for a security lock but depending on your storage circumstances, it may be worth it.

That looks like it would do it and cheaper than a new travel trailer or even some deductibles.

Interesting option, pricey, but not near the PITA I am going through now.

Needless to say, I am also checking for better storage spots now, in anticipation of my next Jayco.

I got a "Camping World" flyer yesterday and they have a dog collar with a gps transmitter that sends a text if it goes out of bounds.Called TAGG Pet Tracker ,pn 61629.would be easy to hide up in the ac cover.$99.99 + the monthly service fee .Thats cheaper than the permenate mount ones for my trucks.

Walmart has a 5/8 inch diameter cable. about 6 ft long for about $20. Cables are harder to cut than chain. I wrap one through the tandem wheels and also use a hitch lock. You aren't going to stop the thieves, just slow them down. In the case of your trailer, I think it was so well planned that nothing would have stopped them. I think they had it picked out and staked out and they were well prepared to steal it.

I had a motor home that there was an attempt break in through a rear window when it was in a storage yard years ago. The plastic sun screen on the window basically stopped them. That was amazing. However, bottom line, the insurance company almost doubled my insurance after that incident. I hustled out and got a new insurance carrier before the payment was over due.

The previous agent, who I had for years, said the increase wasn't due to the incident. Only because it was being stored someplace other than my home.

Here's another wheel lock I stumbled across. Cost is around $90.
