Why not call and put him out of his misery?

First thing I thought of as well.

Have you noticed how construction crews with cranes lift their equipment
high into the air? And I see lots of trailers or signs on wheels without their wheels.
Good point, Carl. Thankfully Tom has me looking for my jack. You two great minds think alike...been hanging around each other much? :-)

Same thing I do when people don't read but are quick to post useless comments.

I've got double tongue locks on mine..............
but, if it becomes a concern, I will close in my
Snoozy barn and double lock a door...............
I also carry insurance for what it's worth.

But you were right earlier, a determined thief is
a thief that disregards the laws and precautions.
Even if the wheels are missing, they could lift it
with a crane and drive off...........but that's too much
trouble for me............(if I was a thief, that is). lol

Have a restful sleep tonight.........

I think you'd be ok with a tongue lock and a cover.

It's a different person each time. Taking the wheels off isn't great on my knee. I had surgery a year ago, but it wasn't the worst.

Wheels are OFF and I will be sleeping just fine tonight. I have one tongue lock...but "they" do say two are better than one!

Hmmmm...something I didn't know about...a cover for my tongue lock!
Thanks, Scott. I'll look into that!

Maybe one of those portable garages to put it in. We have one of those peaked canopies from Northern Tool that we had over our Uhaul while we were wintering in the south, one of those with tarp sides might hide it. Our Uhaul sets in the back yard out of sight, so no problem there. Since Uhaul uses the screw down coupler, the only lock you can put there is the one that is like a ball with a loop above it. One of those wheel lock devices may be good too." Beware of dog" sign might keep people out of your yard, or better yet one of those "trespassers will be shot, survivors will be shot again" signs. I would at least go with "keep out" and "not for sale " signs.

Taking the wheels off only took a half hour, because some nameless child borrowed my floor jack.

I'm going to pick up the "not for sale' sign and see if there's one of those "trespassers..." signs. That's got to be my favorite!

My dog likes to be in the trailer, but all day long while I'm at work might be much!

I'm on ebay shopping for the lock cover....I'm really getting to know the UPS guy.

Ha Vanessa, thats no problem...just give him a price of what it would take for you to sell...$12,000. maybe. Then go forth and buy two more if you can find them.

Did Scott mean a cover for the trailer, at least that's how I took it to mean. But I'm undecided about covering a camper, holding moisture under the cover, mold or mildew possibly. Don't mean to start another discussion on that, just a thought.

It could be annoying to get unsolicited contacts, but these people don't seem like potential thieves - who leaves their name and phone number in a note, then comes back to steal the thing they were asking about?

Information is good. Lack of information is not so good, but misinformation is much worse. Check facts, and apply common sense liberally.
