Angry Stolen Airstream, 22ft Sport - Las Vegas

Posting for a friend:

Close friends have had their Airstream stolen from a Casino RV park in Las Vegas.
It is a short 22' sport single Axle trailer.
Not sure of the trim level.

Identifying notes: bumper sticker on the rear bumper from the Balloon Fiesta in Albuqurque Nm. 2015
Some wheel arch damage from a recent blowout.
flexible solar panels on the roof.

Texas registration: B125506

If seen, please shoot me a pm, or email to AtomicNo13 at geemale dot com
Or call Victor or Linda 210.269.2830

Thanks from non forum members

Hi

Stolen when? ( a week ago = much further from Vegas than stolen earlier today)

As Bob suggested, more date/timing details might help IMO. Any other features to note, like year, extra awnings, antennas, and so forth? Tire blowout was on curb/street side?

Are the police checking the casino's video?

What a drag for your friends!

Thanks for the details. Can your friends ask the casino for the video? Any chance they spent the night as overnight paying guests there? That might prompt the casino to be more helpful IMO.

Have they gotten their insurance company involved? That might kick things into gear also. A local field adjuster might have good connections with the PD too. Also, documenting everything in emails is a good idea.

I thought that all vehicles had to have insurance to receive plates from the DMV? Maybe none for theft?

Your vehicle insurance covers liability when towing any trailer. Maybe you need to show that to the DMV? I don't remember. Trailer insurance is just for damage/theft. Ouch.

Vehicles ? Yes, liability related.
Trailers.....not so much.

Comprehensive coverage isn't required on either.

I knew someone who had a trailer stolen like this while on a trip. Comprehensive wouldn't cover it because it was unhitched from the tow vehicle when stolen. We checked his policy, and yes that was a stipulation.... Not to be unhitched to be covered except while on his own property!
Check the fine print!
I talked to my agent and he had heard of this before!

Thanks for the good comments about the "fine print" of trailer insurance!

I have emailed my insurance company.
