Jack, maybe some arrangements by air would be worth doing to cover area faster. Brownsville Rd. like many others in your area support multiple driveways that are unimproved. Your theifs vehicle supports that the theif possibly resides off an unimroved driveway with what looks to be native dirt behind the wheel wells in your posted photos. The crime scene looks to be in the attached photo. Maybe hangout at the burger joint up the street and wait for him to stop by for another large soda.

This was in the local news feed I have set up on Google this morning:

NEWARK -- Licking County Crime Stoppers is offering as much as $1,000 for information about a camper stolen from a Newark business complex.

At 11 p.m. July 22, an older model two-tone Chevrolet Blazer drove into a small business complex behind Wendy's on Dayton Road.
About 45 minutes later, the Blazer was caught on video pulling a 27-foot Airstream Camper from the complex, according to the news release.
Anyone with information about this crime should call Licking County Crime Stoppers at (740) 349-6888 or (888) 488-9058. A coding system protects the identity of the caller but allows the reward to be issued later.
Crime Stoppers also takes calls from people with information about any felony. Information leading to the arrest and indictment of a felony suspect could qualify the caller for a reward as determined by the Crime Stoppers board.

a few questions here... Have the police been contacted yet? How about your insurance company? What is the hold up on getting the word out? Many days have passed and a sawzall could reduce that trailer to the ground in about a day. I would suggest you contact every scrap yard within 100 miles and tell them to look out for riveted aluminum sheets coming in. They all take down license numbers and take a picture of each person they deal with so that when someone sells stolen metal the police can track them down easy. Also, no tank cover is not really that distinguishing a thing on an Airstream. More than half ever made do not have tank covers.

Has anyone considered putting 2 or 3 foot numbers on the roof?

This whole "sad thread" makes me consider putting my WBCCI # in 2 or 3 foot retro reflective 3M vinyl numbers on the roof. So if you in a high rise on looking down or an over pass, in a helicopter etc you have some identifying marks. As well as something on the windows that would id my unit. I currently do not have my "WBCCI" numbers on the body of the trailer. Now maybe I will put them on the front and rear windows.

I never thought of it before this thread but to AS owners we are aware of types, and models. To the people we are asking for help to find our units they all look the same a silver travel trailer.

Has anyone already done this? Or any other suggestions? Has anyone purchased the GPS tracker suggested earlier in this thread?
I put my AS in for service locally and all I could think about was this thread and I have taken no real positive actions to make my unit identifiable in this type of situation.

I am sorry this happened I pray for a speedy return of your unit.

Lin.

Gary,
I really appreciate your offer. It makes me feel good that there are still people like you that are willing to help out a stranger. I just this morning got word from the Newark detectives assigned to my case that they recovered my Airstream. Most everything inside the camper is gone, including a Colt .45 auto and a .17 cal rifle. They also stole the hubcaps, outside storage doors and antenna along with two propane tanks. The door latch is broken and screen over sink is cut. The crime lab team is here now going over the camper. We are still looking for the driver of the Blazer shown in a previous post.
The camper was found next to a corn field about 100 yards off the road.
Location was about 2-3 miles NW of Baltimore, OH

Airstream recovered

My thanks go out to everyone who has helped with suggestions, concerns and offers of help. I always wondered what the big deal about having an Airstream was. Now I know! What a great group of people that own them.

Thanks to some outstanding work by the Newark, OH detectives, my Airstream was recovered this morning. Assistance this morning was given by the Fairfield county Sheriff's dept. The thieves haven't been caught yet, but leads are being followed.

P.S.
I am now hunting for outside storage doors and a door latch to make my AS secure(?) again. They took both doors from the refrigerator side of the trailer and the door in front of the battery compartment. Any suggestions where to buy these?

Obviously we have a crook of an Airstream owner out there that needed parts from yours for theirs! Stripping the interior? No real value there unless you really needed it.
Glad they found whats left and your on the road to recovery

That's awesome news, congrats!! Those doors can be difficult to find but not impossible. Try RV wrecking yards first. Colaws in Missouri would be a good start. They have a whole row of wrecked Airstreams. Also try EBAY and the classified ads here on the Forums.

Looks like this guy is an owner himself and needed these very same doors. When you say everything in the interior is gone, are you saying they stripped out everything?

Mike,
No, I mean they stole all personal items. They went as far as even stealing the paper towels!

Congratulations on finding your unit. Tough that they stole the parts they did. They either need them as suggested above - or they know what will move on Ebay. What antenna did they steal - the rooftop TV or the radio? How badly were you going for vintage - if not totally - look at the door lock kit that Inland RV has to replace the now verrrrry expensive KT original lock. Hopefully, they will still track them down....
