Good Reason Not to Have Outside Compartments

Minnesota man's body found in RV cargo area

And my husband thought he was having a bad week with a dead body.

I saw that on the news. I wonder if the kid crawled into the baggage compartment for shelter and froze to death? Bad time of the year to be looking for unheated shelter.

This is really odd. The article said the man had been missing since November and had bare feet and hands. No one in MN has bare feet and hands in November, not even bare feet inside the home.

Perhaps a small child could get into the storage areas of most of our trailers. An adult would have to be a contortionist of Houdini proportions.
Put locks on the doors Mike, problem solved.

Why would you have an exterior door without locks??? Really??

Oh...and the "no gloves" thing. Heck. Until it gets to -5F I make it between the house and the office (garage in back) without gloves OR a jacket. Toughen up!

I lived in Minnesota for the first 61 years of my life . In the winter a lot of Minnesotans go outside without hats or gloves . I worked construction and many times I worked outside in the winter sans gloves , try putting threaded parts together with gloves on . In my teenage years we would ride around in the winter in a convertible with the top down and no hat . I was outside raking leaves this weekend ,it was 35 Deg , again NO hat, No gloves ,No jacket. My point is ,that is was not unusual that the body was found without hat or gloves and Yes some of us walk around the house in bare feet even in winter

It didn't sound like a rental lot, either. The article I read said it was a friend of a friend of a friend, and they were warned not to open those compartments beforehand.
