Lots of folks willing to help look, but a lot of them look similar w/o tag #'s, WBCCI #'s, and graphics you might have put on it, some distinguishing marks? Help us..... Help you. Post a picture or two. We'll keep our eyes open.

Good luck. Terry and Natalie

Pictures of Thief

Thanks to all of you who have responded. I am not sure what the numbers are on the Airstream, as there were two sets of numbers on it at one time. You can make out where the numbers were as the surface oxidized around them. As far as distinguishing items, I made a temporary repair to a leak around the antenna using a can of spray foam. It is very visible, about 6 inches or more tall. Also the step is covered in green carpet held on by white ty-raps and the front hitch area is newly painted silver. There is a right angle bracket below the rear window and twin tanks on front w/o cover.
I had a Reese hitch pin lock on it, but evidently that is not enough. If by chance you happen to see it, don't approach the people, just call the police, as we don't want any of you good guys harmed. I am attaching two pictures one of the thief and one of him stealing my Airstream. Wish the cameras would have caught his license.

By the way, the vehicle is a two-door Blazer.
Thanks,

That vehicle is a Chevy S10 Blazer or a GMC S15 Jimmy made in that body style by GM from the early 80s to 1994. The one in the picture is a 5 door (4 doors plus a rear door). It is not exactly a towing machine--small V6 engine.
Sure hope you catch this jerk.

If this guy is dumb enough to post it on craigslist, I'll help keep an eye out for it nationwide. For example, here's a 71 Overlander in Minnesota. Who knows where your trailer could wind up.

Hi, if you mean a lock on the coupler latch, that is not enough. When I just want to pull my trailer forward to work on it, I remove my coupler lock. I don't remove my latch lock because I use my 2" ball hitch and it slips right inside of a locked 2 5/16" coupler. That might be what the thieves did. They don't need to break or cut the latch lock and make any noise.

Major Bummer. Hope it was insured for theft. Your not reporting from inside your unit are you? Sometimes when it gets to hot by the beach we go out to the driveway and sleep in ours for the air conditioning.

Have a question? Of the two photos you have posted, the earlier shot shows this person driving through the intersection passing the cross street without your trailer and in the second shot a little over an hour later from the approaching direction through the same intersection is a bit odd. Looks like an older commercial area. due to what I see is concrete curbs with overhead power lines. Nice street light on the corner by the way to aid the security camera. Is this Dayton Road or somewhere else in Newark? If this isn't Dayton Road it maybe a good location to continue reviewing security tapes for this vehicle coming back into this location later.

Does the trailer have a license plate on it? State and plate number would be helpful.

Jack,

You might use this to check Craigslist nationwide:

SearchTempest - The EASY way to search Craigslist

I've found it useful in my searches for tools.

Here's to you getting it back and the creeps getting busted!!

Hoping to slow someone down on ours, we added a "boot" figuring that it in combination with a good hitch lock, and a quality pad lock on the pin would make someone more interested in an easier target...
