Hi Looks to me that you got alot of ridicuel but no real anser but the guy who talked about the ball hitch lock. You could also buy a cheap ball and beat the threads with a hammer so the thief cold not use that ball to bolt to his hitch. Then lock that ball to your toung hitch with a good master lock. just a idea that will not cost alot of money. It will detere most. But if someone really wants it they more than likely will get it.

Sometime befor thanksgiving my two origional propane tanks were taken off of my trailer right in my driveway ... I replaced them just about a week ago but they dont fit the same as the origionals ?
I considered going down the the farm supply store and buying an electrified fence power box and electriying the trailer but the wife say's no way ...
that would give me great satisfaction.!

As far as theft of the trailer I close the hitch and lock it with a realy big padlock ...I do not lock the door because I have seen a couple trailer doors where the thief caused more damage trying to enter than the contents were worth... I don't leave valuable's inside...

After having lost my 35 HP Johnson outboard - that was secured to the boat with a Master Padlock assembly that goes over the tightening screw handles - while the boat was parked in plain sight in a lighted storage area - and at a very high-scale apartment complex, the police explained that this particular band of crooks, who specialized in boat thefts, could remove and make off with a complete stern drive unit in less than 12 minutes. Incidentally, the motor was never found and it probably wound up on a dugout canoe in South America. As someone mentioned earlier, you may discourage the amateurs - but the professionals will just keep smiling while they hook your trailer to their tow vehicle (---or steal your TV too!)

Back from the road again...

Back home from a road trip to Florida to pick up a 1968 Barth travel trailer
As always, along my way I saw several storage yards with Airstreams in them....
My personal experience has shown the best storage tip is to back up against a fence or wall & park a vehicle in front; disable the vehicle (remove the ignition coil wire) and flatten a tire....... this is especially helpful if you can't check on your trailer as often as you would like

That's a good looking travel trailer. I knew Barth made motorhomes for awhile - but I never realized they made trailers.

Thanks

Barth made travel trailers, not many, from 1960 to 1968....
The company sold & the new owner made them for one more year in 1969.
I think it is very 1950's looking South Palm Beach art deco....
