Scamp stolen in Dallas TX, 7 Nov 2018

This was posted in the Scamp Facebook Group and it was requested this it be reposted, so here it is...

From ‎Hollis Wakefield:

***PLEASE REPOST/BOLO ONLINE!!*** Our beloved camper was stolen today [Nov 7] around 11:30am in Dallas TX (Oak Cliff near Beckley and Crestwood). Please keep your eyes out for it online! Trailer’s license plate is 5YH 444. It’s a vintage 1970’s Scamp. Two men with a red truck can be seen hauling it through our neighborhood. Looks like they may have removed their front plates. We had an $80 hitch lock on it but I guess they cut through it. The trailer was also full of our camping equipment. ... Thank you so much in advance.

FYI, the victim is apparently not on this forum.

What hitchlock brand did you use - it would be helpful if you wouldn't mind sharing so others are aware of how easily many of these locks can be defeated

Hope you get your Scamp back

Best Wishes

Maybe I should remove the wheels?

I looked at the Facebook post - the owner thinks the thieves may have just chained the trailer to their truck without using the hitch. I can see how easy that might be for a short haul.
Last year I did remove the wheels when I had my Scamp 13 parked for a few months. Has anyone used a wheel clamp - like the Denver Boot or similar?

IF you're going to buy a boot for the trailer tire, make sure it's one worth your money.

Stolen Scamp Alert

***PLEASE REPOST/BOLO ONLINE!!*** Our beloved camper was stolen today around 11:30am in Dallas TX (Oak Cliff near Beckley and Crestwood). Please keep your eyes out for it online! Trailerís license plate is 5YH 444. Itís a vintage 1970ís Scamp. Two men with a red truck can be seen hauling it through our neighborhood. Looks like they may have removed their front plates. We had an $80 hitch lock on it but I guess they cut through it. The trailer was also full of our camping equipment. Iím still waiting on the police to get here so I can file a report. Thank you so much in advance.

Posting for a fellow fiberglass trailer owner. Hollis Wakefield This is the fourth camper/RV stolen in our neighborhood in two weeks and I'm not expecting much help from local law enforcement (not because they don't care, but because they're understaffed). If you see it online please alert police and message me on FB, email me at holliswakefield@gmail.com, or text at 817.917.9740. <3 Thanks again!

Donna, & others, it appears a wheel clamp is not enough. This boot has a face plate covering the lug nuts. I have also thought an 8' metal rod with a welded disc on one end, and a padlock through the other end, could be run through both wheels. I think the police radar trailer had that. I understand it could be cut, but a good supplement.
