Trailer dream....

Not that, I've got the trailer.

But sleeping in it down at my daughter's home, and I had a dream that I was across the street doing something, and someone was stealing the trailer. A gang of people. I was trying to yell and no words would come, and called 911 but couldn't talk (and was really irked when that didn't get a rescue team sent to my location!) and then I was crying really hard, because my trailer was gone, and trying to reassure myself that they couldn't possibly sell it without me finding it. I remember this dream in great detail which is unusual for me.

Probably what triggered the dream- well, two things, last time I was here my trailer was parked here and while we were out someone took a slide from my daughter's yard (right there next to the trailer). Also, I have a lock on the tongue and on the cargo rack (something I never had on the Campster) and a deadbolt on the door (also never had on the Campster) so both things likely put theft on my mind.

Those people who took your daughter's slide might have been the same ones who took our campsite at Seal Rock S.P. last May with our trailer parked there. We went out for a few hours and came back around 4 PM to find a car parked in front of our 21 and a tent set up. We hadn't yet paid for a 2nd night, so they felt they could move on in. They wouldn't leave despite the Camp Host asking them to find another spot- lots of empty ones. Another forum member was witness to this and the Ranger who came out wouldn't make them leave either! Well, better than coming back to find the trailer missing

That takes a lot of nerve! But yes, better than the trailer missing (or them rolling it out of your site so they could take over.)

Hi: Bobbie54... More a night mare!!! It would be a horse of a different colour if it was gone. There is something to be said for a bigger trailer. No one could just slide it outta there. Alf

I've been told that budget cuts here have reduced police presence.

When I leave the trailer at a camping site, I put a pretty hefty hitch lock on it. I suppose it could be sawed off, but it might take a while and they would make a fair amount of noise doing it. Loren

Rossue,
I hope they at least split the cg nightly fee, if not I would not have paid for the second night and left real early the next morning. Obviously the police do not have enforcement authority in that park.

I would think the problem is that the tenter doesn't know what you are thinking. If you haven't paid and they have, then it's their spot. They may have expected you to return shortly and leave. Not a light chore to pack up a tent and move.
So, why would you not pay by the required time, if you intend to stay?

We hadn't intended to be gone as long as we did and usually pay a night at a time. Never have had this problem before and while technically our reservation expired at 1 PM the issue of paying another night is between me and the camphost. They would know a day in advance if there was a reservation and there was not. These folks just wanted our prime view spot and even had the gall to call 911 even though we had hardly any interaction with them. Guess they subscribe to the saying "possession is 9/10th the law" or some such nonsense. Ranger did not want to come out and when he did played Solomon and split the campsite in half. We left and "boondocked" in a group site at some SP nearer to Port Townsend and our ferry the next AM. Seriously- how many of you would even think of pulling a stunt like that? Had he spoken to the camp host they would have been told we were staying as saw them our way out for the short day trip.
