<span style="color:#800080">Moderator's note: These two topics about this stolen "Backus" Casita have been merged and moved here to General Chat, where the new topic will get more attention/be seen by more readers than it was getting in the For Sale section. </span>

Thanks Kevin! I'm really going to miss it, especially when the snow melts. Hope it turns up!

It's pretty unusual. I wouldn't think there are many of the Backus Casitas around - unless they cover up that logo, I don't see how they can get away with it!

Yes, it would be a very easy thing to spot going down the road unlike say a pop up that all look about the same. I've only seen maybe two other 13ft Casitas around Mn. Even rarer are the Burros, I know of one. Mine says Backus, Mn. on it where Scamp is made. One of the brothers went to Texas to make Casitas. I wish now that I would have blocked it up and took the wheels off, but who knew? Right in the middle of winter! Sure hope it shows up.

Did you have a lock on the trailer hitch? Was it, stored outside? What day of the week was it stolen? Just curious on how I should keep mine safe.

SHAME ON THEM!!!! Sorry to hear about the theft. Being a new "egg" owner myself, I wondered what precautions I should take. The amount of curiosity that arose just having my 1977 13' Scamp parked in the driveway for 3 days was AMAZING. Several inquires to purchase AND 2 notes left on the door when I was not home. I will be much more careful in the future. Even though I am in Appleton, Wisconsin, I will keep my eyes peeled.

This topic morphed into a discussion on theft deterrent. Much of the new discussion has been split into its own topic:
