Barry, I told Steve about Az's idea, he chuckled at the thought and we both agreed, that would be a cool idea!!..I was 0nline looking for a dog bark alarm that you can plug in to the wall and as a person nears the premises, the bark becomes loud, then louder with each bark, and subsides as the person leaves...hmm, thinkin'

Like many of you, I seem to have good neighbors. There has been more than one occasion when I have been notified of a water leak or other problem. A couple of weeks ago I drained my pool and two neighbors called or came by to see if I had a broken pipe when they saw water running down the street.
There are also three law enforcement officers and another firefighter that live on my block. Not too much goes on that shouldn't. And then there's my dog...

Ok, Steph, I'll bite: how do you know about that alarm?..

I did see one for about $75, but it was a plug/in 24 hour one..wonder if you can get one that attaches to the doorbell, so that everytime anyone rings the bell, the bark would start?

We have not had a problem with AS vandalism or attempted break-ins in our neighborhood (so far), and since I work at home one of us (if not both) are home most of the time...that, plus the fact that we live on a short dead-end street (not quite a cul-de-sac) and have very watchful neighbors... However, Airstreams are tempting targets and I do have concerns about people knowing we are not home when we are on a trip...

See post #33 in this thread: http://www.airforums.com/forums/f39/...own-35036.html

for pictures of the new gates we have just added to our "Bambi Port" to increase security and shelter the Airstream from unwanted access and eyes.

Great set up TB for protecting the Bullet and for making it very hard to tell when it is where it should be, in a CG somewhere.

I have mine socked away in it's Air'hanger and the neighbor out with the kids collecting goodies last night asked where it was - that's a good sign that it's very well hidden, and that they notice when it's not visible. I thanked her for that.

She is the only neighbor who would actually be able to see the trailer in our yard, but we did find out that folks who horseback ride up behind us, at that height on a horse and on the hill, can see the trailer for a brief period. Fortunately, they are all part of the neighborhood and wouldn't be giving anyone problems.

You could be a very wealthy man with this one....

An inflatable Airstream could also be a great training vehicle. If you're nervous having one of your kids (32 years old or not) drive, or your wife has never towed and doesn't want to listen to you do a meltdown/psychotic break... practice with a Nerfstream. The dings would come right out.

We just got back from the 3 day rally in Kernville at the Rivernook Campground..lots of great members and guests to visit with, great food, great places to see..and with this thread I had started, there were a few moments when I thought about how things were doing at our home..we had our 2 different trustworthy neighbors help in bringing in our mail and going into our back yard to feed our pigeons and our goldfish..

So we got home in the afternoon..sooo blatantly obvious when we open the gate on the busy street, back in the safari, where anyone coming to the 4-way stop intersection can note our activities!!!..(so I can envision what they see when we go out of our fence out on our trip!!!)..anyways, everything is as it was when we left and returned..but I am still thinking of some sort of thing to stand that would rise above our 6 ft. fence on the street side..

Are you allowed to put up one of the Costco style car/trailer covers? They have a door on them. When you have the door closed no one can tell if there's a trailer in it or not.

The other thing is to have another distraction there, like a second vehicle you may leave at home - park it in front of that gate if you can so when someone is going by they see something there. It doesn't necessarily have to be the trailer....

Or, you could buy a nice little acreage or place with a big back area that when the trailer is back there it can't be seen anyway so no one will now when it is there or gone - that's what we have and it's great. We have even just camped back there and with the creek and all the trees it is nice to hide out from time to time - and I still get to soak in the big soaker tub early in the morning too.....
