I wouldn't be looking for it being towed.
I expect it is on a flat-bed truck, under a tarp. Can worry about hitch locks and such later.

The unique decals are good information, although a smart thief would have peeled those off by now. Fortunately, thieves are often not smart...

Sure, but it is later... it can't take very many hours to defeat any locks. A travel trailer on a flatbed is a novelty which attracts attention; one on the road behind a pickup or SUV is ordinary and unnoticed.

I'm sorry to learn of the loss. How traumatic. We certainly will keep our eyes out. Craig's list might be a place to look as well. I hope they catch the thieves. Some have added a roof decal for the ease of spotting it from the air. I'm sure the forum members who learn of this will keep their eyes out for one with blue graphics as a license plate may be changed as well. I wish your parents good luck.

I was telling my wife this morning before reading this that I need to start installing the pin lock on our 5.0 every time we leave the campground to go explore an area. We are naïve to think that the theft of our boat/trailers or RVs won't happen even at home.

I hate "Lessons Learned," but I always learn lessons from others.

Keep getting the word out. The strangest contact may get this trailer home. Share with everyone you know, the WWW and social media are truly amazing.

Well, that certainly is crappy. So sorry to hear this. Things like this just get my blood boiling. Bloody idiots do this and get little compensation when they sell it too. Makes me wanna punch the jerk(s) if ever found.

Is there any word on your stolen Escape.That would be so maddening,I would be just sic over it.Hope they can find it.
Maybe it would be worth putting a unique decal on the top ,were thieves wouldn't look ,so it can be easily identified.They all look the same except for the colour decal differences,while going down the highway at a glance.
I need to get back in the habit of using the trailer hitch lock at campgrounds .I also use a wheel boot when parked at home just off the back alley.
