I would definitely concentrate on the possibility that it has been prepared for shipment. The thieves could have had a custom wooden container already prepared for it. I believe that it's too large to fit in a standard shipping box - but, just maybe, with the wheels and air-conditioning removed it would fit? The amount of stolen goods that leave this country on a daily basis - from what I've read with reference to the port of Miami - is unbelievable! I wish you the best of luck getting it back and prosecuting the thieves.

I've sent this site to all the AS people I know. Will be on the look-out for it here in the midwest. That trailer should certainly stand out. I'm wishing you the best of luck in getting it back.

If it was, it was well set-up, and planned way in advance. I worked on those docks.

It may be headed for the southern border. We all need to watch for it, I hope it shows up!

The good news is people that steal are not geniuses. Good chance they will get caught. I hoep the cops keep an eye out, check listings daily!

that kind of behavior just makes me mad

also makes me want to update my security systems.
don't you just want to take a wrecker bar to the people who stoop so low, but then call the sheriff in to do the right thing right before you cross the line.

it's the not knowing which is the worst

to search all of craigslist type yoursearchterm site:craigslist.org
for example 18 footer airstream site:craigslist.org

Ryan and Katie: Hope you get your very beautiful 18 footer back soon and undamaged! My wife is saving your original post with pictures on her laptop so we can help search for your trailer as we travel to Arizona later this winter. I would appreciate it if you would post the Brand Name and Model # of the Hitch lock and Pad lock you used to try to secure your trailer. That information might help others avoid a similar loss. Thank you.

That sucks.. our worst fear. Download Craigspal. Its a craigslist search engine that checks every craigslist in the country. They cant hide it forever and since she is such a beauty chances are that they will take care of it hopefully.. they know what they stole and have a plan.. just need to outsmart them..

We too will keep our eyes open down here in the bay area.

Everyone,

Thanks so much for the support! Can't remember right now about the hitch lock, but Ryan is confident that he can find it online... We'll post the info here when we do.

We filed with Seattle PD who are going to list it nationally. All state patrols, police departments and border patrols, etc, will be able to see it is stolen property.

We feel for your loss of your beautiful trailer... Good luck and keep the faith that you'll get it back unharmed...my guess (and hope) is that they won't get far with it because it's the kind of trailer people will notice. We'll sure keep an eye out. We hope they get caught and the book thrown at them!

Two suggestions - first, if you had anything inside the trailer with separate value on its own - Honda generator, new fridge, etc., it'll be worth keeping an eye out for those things separately on Craigslist + eBay. Those would be easy to pull out and sell off quickly if they're parting it out.

The other thing I'd try and do is take a drive in several directions from your home and fine where the nearby security cameras are that would have a shot of those routes. Could be a bank drive-thru or parking lot camera, but with something as unique as this trailer... a friendly manager, armed with a specific segment of time provided by you, *could* theoretically determine what kind of car was used to steal it, and maybe even get a license plate number.

If you're near an interstate or tollway too, that could be another method with good, well-aimed cameras that would've picked up license plate info. Even if the truck was stolen too, you'll increase the chances of connecting some dots.

Best of luck, and we all have a pit in our stomachs just thinking about your situation.
