I heard there was an altercation with a person with a very noisy Black Poodle making a LOT of noise during the daytime. Could the owner have taken a little revenge on the AS people? Hard to prove. Very sad person that would do that. Justice would be nice. A cloud over an otherwise nice weekend. I gained 4 pounds , need to correct that. Best to ya.

I believe I saw a sign at the office building that noted the area was under camera surveillance. Not sure if it implied the office building itself or the park. Might be worth a call to the KOA to inquire.

Condolences on your damage. Cannot even imagine what kind of idiot would do that to someone else's property.

Thankyou to all who have offered advice and sincere feelings of pain for us. It is very sad this had to happen to anyone. We were parked in a row with other airstreams to our drivers side, but door side by eyesite was blocked by a large 5th wheel. At night it was very dark. We were away from the trailer for dinner in the main building but it was daylight. After dinner and back to the trailer for a brief time to collect the dogs for their walk, we were gone then for several hours into the evening darkness visiting friends on the other side of the KOA.
We have resigned to the fact now the scratches are part of the Yeager trailer's history. Its skin wasn't by any means perfect and was and will remain unpolished along with other "dings and doinks" for being over 50 years old.
Hard to say who and when, but it happened as a part of life I guess.
We know of friends who were new to airstream a few year ago, while traivelling in their brand new trailer and they, too, were keyed.
its sad for sure

Mother's Day we parked our '75 AS in a parking lot of a furniture store behind a restaurant in Lexington, Ky. It was in an area with moderate traffic. When we returned after eating lunch, we returned to find someone had literally ripped one of the stainless steel gravel guards off the trailer. They pulled the screws out causing some damage to the trailer skin.I wonder if anyone offers a surveillance system for trailers.

When I took my recently finished 55 Safari to the Texas Vintage rally las year I got a similar gouging. I was parked away from the maddening crowd but found a large scratch down the entire side.

From our understanding so far, another trailer was scratched. . Also, a hubcap on a tow vehicle came up missing as well. There is a population at this campground one could deem semi or permanent residents. Just saying

Gents, this property destruction is entirely unacceptable. I know how hard each of you strive to reach perfection with every A/S project you undertake. Nothing anyone can say will lessen the anger & madness you both must feel.
Suggestion: File a report with the local PD. Try to obtain a guest roster from the CG management. Then compose a letter, acceptable to the CG owner including his signature and send it to each camper who was a guest that day. In the letter, explain the situation and see if they can lend any help to IDing the culprit.
Perhaps on the next A/S Open House, visitors should be limited to A/S owners only. Just a thought. Louie

So sorry to learn this guys... As they say, "karma is a ***ch" ... I can only hope they get their due. Our truck keyed ... we hadn't had it a week. It's an awful feeling. Hang in there.
