Have no leads to my Stolen Tradewind (Labor Day 2010). And it seems that the other threads from my friends who have also experienced this thrill are silent. So I take it that no body that's had a trailer stolen has anything new to report?

I will say that buying a 2006 Safari SEFB has helped ease my pain. But I still want my Tradewind back and hope to help others from being victims of theft.

Still missing now after 3 months. No clues or leads. Things I've learned:

Insurance would have been a good idea.
Don't leave your trailer in an open place where others can want her too.
Don't trust in locks and chains or covers over the hitch
Gps tracking is cheap to buy, especially after spending thousands fixing her up.
The Police really don't care
Put the WBCCI numbers on her, could help someone report her
Don't leave your personal stuff in the trailer, pictures, flashlights, favorite CDs.
You really don't have the time to send out flyers, contact every police department in America or post photos at truck stops.
Most of humanity is good, bur a few people out there should be blown off this planet, they're called Airstream thieves.

Damn! If that don't beat it all. Pictures and numbers will help us. Put out flyers and concentrate on folks who would be up and out at 0500. An Airstream being towed in the city approaching rush hour should stand out....even to the Police.

Trailer Stolen in Houston

What's so strange about this is that Star Pizza is less than a half mile away from where my Tradewind was stolen from. I had driven by and seen it and made sure it wasn't mine. Again it was located in a pretty busy public space.

So did they cut the lock at the fence? Cut locks off the hitch? If the tires were bad then you may want to contact tire stores in the area. Post photos ASAP. Describe distinguishing features. Did you have a camera on the lot and that's how you knew it was 5am? Did yout electric lift work? How did they get it hitched up?

Could be a chance the same guy that stole mine

Sounds like it's time to place a "bait" Airstream, with a cadre of undercover police, in that area of Houston.

Catch the thief, tie him up alive and use him as a speed bump in a walmart parking lot during lunch time traffic. Take lots of pictures and smear lipstick all over his face.

Stolen Tradewind

not mine but it's out there somewhere. Here's a pic for the record. Had grey painted propane tanks, a broken outer curved window and the cover for the Atwood lift was stripped off during the theft which was last Labor day in Houston.
