identity theft

After watching 60 minutes tonight I had a question because program got me thinking . Anyone can join the forum ? So a unethical person would know what and where all the trailers are located ? If they came to your home and you are supposed to have this trailer and it isn't there , you probably aren't home ? What are others thoughts on this ? Pat

A lot of trailers including ours is stored away from home so is only there when loading or working on it. But our German Shepard is always home. Loren

Some people use approximate locations (pick the city hall in your community, or a highway interchange...) for this reason. Similarly, many people put only first names or forum nicknames, not full names, on this map and in other online locations.

Others publish specific and detailed information freely. It's a personal decision.

I completely agree.

If you give in to this fear, you are already a victim of crime.

Pretty easy to find and check out anyone's place using Google Maps, and see that they have a trailer. Besides, I would be way more concerned for my house, its contents, and us in it, than a trailer in the yard.

Owners Map

Good luck deducing that we aren't home by owner mapping our address and checking for a trailer - since there's no room to park a trailer and we store it elsewhere. Honestly, I think the scenario is highly unlikely, and not worth worrying about.

Great! Your kids are going to play football with the trailer thieves, maybe offer them a pint or two, before they take off with your trailer. You must have some Canadian blood in your heritage.

Our 250 lb football playing sons and daughters have to stay at home, they have to feed all of our pit bulls, or they would starve.
