I hate to bring it up.. but you might contact places that handle aluminum recycling as well.

Does your trailer have a model name beside 18 footer?

I have always said that a lock only keeps your friend away...but I hope the forum friend can help you find it. Call the Airstream clubs and dealers in the states around you to post it with pictures. Go to the WBCCI Reigion website and get email addresses. I wish you the best of luck. Lou

I copied your post and photos and will carry it with me for the next couple of years. Doesn't weigh much or take up much room. I think that between all the folks on this forum we will find your trailer. It would be so much fun to be responsible for locking up the "bad guys".

Doesn't that just suck! I really feel for you.

We are out east but heading for the Mid-Winter IBT in Montgomery, Texas and will keep a close eye on any Airstream especially yours. If everyone does the same maybe you will be lucky and get it back.

Sad, very sad. Best of luck finding it soon. I'm a bit too far to have seen it by now if it came this direction but will keep an eye out.

Now, to catch my breath from running outside to check on mine.......

I am so sorry for what has happened to you. What a loss.. I think you will find it or it will be found. You can't just hide something like that and if they try to sell it they will be caught.
A friend of mine had his 56 Chev delivery stolen in Springfield, Missouri. He had completely went through it and it was awesome. Worth thousands. I mentioned this to a friend that lived in Florida. He remembered the truck from visits to Missouri. A couple of weeks later they went to the beach at Daytona and there it was! He found a cop told him the story, they checked it out, arrested to men and he had his 56' back in a week.

I hope your story ends up that way.
Good luck, I'll tell my hubby and we'll keep an eye out for ya.

quote=r&kweber;645599]Everyone,

Please keep your eyes peeled for our beautiful 1959 18 footer that was stolen off our property this morning. I've checked the local craigslist and on ebay with nothing so far. We did a total frame off restoration this year with a polish only a year old. It is gorgeous, serial number 18D0106, Wa license plate 9730SY.

If anyone sees this trailer, please pm us. Thank you!

There is no nameplated model name. It goes by either "18 footer" or "Traveler."

I would check with the port authorities. Harley's, classic cars are stolen all the time and shipped over seas. I have even read about nice bycyles being stolen and shipped over seas. I would look in that direction because that is to nice not be noticed. I don't think it would be stolen for aluminum. I would bet they were watching the whole restoration process. A friend told a friend told a friend and on and on. It got to the wrong ears and somebody waited for the correct moment. That is just an assumption. I am not in law enforcement because that kind of crime happens regulary in this country.

I would not trust anybody. Why because I have been ripped off by so called good friends before. Unfortunately that happens also

It could already be in container on a ship. Or waiting to be loaded.

You know folks. We post our airstream pictures on this site everyday. People could be documenting where these trailer are. Then going to the cities and looking for them.
