Here's another thought: you know those I-beam steel girders with the base on hinges? You see 'em at the entrance to hiking trails to keep cars... only the ranger can come along and folds it down with a key.

If I had a nice, permanent storage spot on my own property, I'd install those on all four sides of the trailer, set in concrete and making it nigh unto impossible to move it without the key... unless they have a helicopter and a good sling!

Will the trailer bake device kill the battery or over heat the magnets??
I also suggest WBCCI and local unit notification. We all look when we see an Airstream going down the road or see 1 parked. (I do anyways)

Stolen trailer

I got really good news from the Seminole county Sheriff this morning that they had recovered the trailer. Hurrah.
It was a result of posting a picture with a reward offer at the local store/gas station in Sasakwa, OK. A man out hunting spotted it & called me & the sheriff. Theives had drug it out in a pasture about 6 miles from where they stole. They are hard to hide. Thanks to all who responded. I know we all get attached them. My friends who own it are thrilled and will happily pay the reward.

Awesome - congrats! I wish this story's ending was the rule rather than the exception.

Always good to have a happy ending.

Any idea what the thieves had in store for the trailer?

Professional thieves. They dumped it on some farmers pasture for a cool down period. Very glad you got it back.

We've had our gate locks cut, and found a motorcycle & trailer hidden behind some trees in one of our pastures. Police said it had been stolen from a hotel clear on the other side of the city. Somebody that new the area and had been casing us as a hiding spot. It's too bad we didn't think at the time to set up cameras and wait for them to come back.
