Men's brief underwear has a pocket between the outside flap and inside, skid marked shorts left in plain sight or in the dirty laundry bag, will not be disturbed by most, except a diligent significant other ;-)

From somebody that's still looking for a $150 Savings Bond we put in "A Safe Place" in 1998, I may not be the best one to guess...
That being said, I lost Marie's iPod in our trailer. I left it on the bed, and it slid down the wall and behind the underbed storage compartments. I had to take the bed apart to get the thing out.

We once used a yardstick with (used) chewing gum attached to retrieve a lost contact lens from behind and under one of our rear benches.

Carol, lost my keys in the space between the (twin) bed and the chest of drawers, behind a book that I had stashed for reading when unable to fall asleep. Then again, I, too, have lost LOTS of things between the mattress and outer wall of the trailer, only to discover them when hauling the hose out of the storage cubby...

Don't forget in plain sight on the TV dashboard or behind the flip-up stove cover...

Maybe someone from the Factory could point you in the right direction, they hid'ed some interesting things in ours....

...seem to remember a Factory hiding place under the slide out cutting board on our 63 Safari..... am I right?

Hi, Robert is right; The factory hid these items in my trailer, under the oven, on and around my furnace, inside of the kitchen cabinet. I found these about four years after my trailer was built.

I am impressed by variation of all your answers, however no one has quite found the right slot. I must stress though that this IS a contest, not just a mere game and the prize is important right now. Come on you guys, dig in deeper!

This canyon is filled with mystery and desire..........

Carol

I always 'hide' my wedding ring in plain sight - on the center spindle of a lamp's lampshade - right on top - it looks like part of the spindle...first time I used that spot, I didn't 'find' it again for a couple of weeks!

There are lots of cubby holes and hidden places in some Airstreams. Ours has the door without a handle to get to the water pump, for example. Under the fridge is a small compartment, but the divider behind it can be lifted to (sort of) access pipes. Under the bedroom wardrobe and drawers, there's a door to a small space, but you could reach in behind it towards the water heater and drop something in there that would be very difficult to retrieve. Lots of little spaces when you lift up the bed.

But Carol has a different trailer.

Perhaps I am looking at this too literally.

Gene

Guess it depends on what it is, but here's a few more spots to look

- on top of the fridge
- under the stove top
- on top of the stove top vent
- in the oven
- between the folds of a towel, sheet, tablecloth, apron
- under a mattress, cushion, pillow
- between the mattress & mattress pad
- between the foam & upholstery of a chair/gaucho/dinette
- rolled between the sheets of TP
- in a aluminum foil/saran wrap box
- isn't there a hidden TP compartment in a '66? Behind the toilet or beside it?
- up inside the plumbing surround in the bath
- behind a picture or mirror
- in a fake beer/soda or cleaning supply "can"
- in a fake "rock"
- in/under a flower arrangement
- in a glove
- in the headband of a hat
- in a shoe, boot, slipper
- in a rolled pair of socks
- in a thermos jug or ice chest
- in a coffee/tea, sugar/flour or spice rack canister
- in/under the utensil tray
- in a deck of cards or game box
- in the battery compartment of a radio
- in the folds of a map
- in the pages of a book



Good luck!

Shari

More clues....
Something keeps telling me it is where money would go
It would never be put in anything I would throw away
It would be somewhere I would be likely to run into it soon,
I remember almost putting it in a cookbook but thought,
"What if I don't cook out of this for years or I give it away?"
Wish I had left it there, I can still remember that place........
Damn,

C



(So far that has proven wrong, but since the coma, my habits have peculiarly changed)
It only took me a couple of minutes to accomplish....

I know it is is my brain somewhere unless the doctor let it leak out of my neck onto the OR floor by accident. Maybe it burned up in the fire right before the coma....

I know when I see the answer, it will suddenly pop in my head.
Then we BOTH WIN!
Along with some of you others who have entertained me immensely during my recuperation. I have started to wonder about some of your occupations or past very secretive lives? Some of you should be authors if you are not already and the Peterman one nearly made me fall out of my chair.....

Keep going.....
