I'd get a list of "questionable" chop/paint shops from the police, and have them checked out..

Those paint jobs are too conspicuous to go long without a disguise!

I did post this on a couple of FB groups, even Tin Can Tourist. I figure member's there will help keep an eye out for them as well. Good Luck, hope they are found soon................

Carol H, thank you for posting this. I like to think that such people cannot get away with theft no matter where in or out of the country they might go because so many people know about this. They can change the colors but not the year or make. And those redone trailers are rare. Only a few of those U-Hauls were even made.

Cathy you are so right. I would encourage everyone who have a Facebook page to post it! Lots of eyes out for them will help. I know I have more than one friend how has hooked up and is currently making there way south for the winter and on into Mexico. You never know where the trailers might be spotted.

How about putting some interior pictures up so we can watch for posted ads?

These thefts might well be targeted to a specific client already, but they might have been stolen for resale.

I'm betting that if those puppies resurface, it'll be with new exterior paint, but a reseller would likely leave the interior alone...

Hope he puts the VIN's up, too...

I s'pose you and your son already know this, but in case not:

There's a website devoted to the sale of fiberglass trailers that would be worth contacting/watching.
Here's the link: Molded Fiberglass Trailers | Fiberglass RV's For Sale

Mikmay,

Tell your son that I am very sorry. I met him at ISTE where I recognized his turquoise Boler and began talking to him about it and his iPad product. He has a passion for fiberglass beyond the fact that he rents them out.

What a shame!

Ok guys I am going to suggest that just in case the party that has these trailers is listening in that we dont talk here about any unique features we see on each of these trailers - just in case they decide to rip them out as a result of what they read here, making it hard to id these trailers should they come on the market.

But...

If we don't see/talk about what the trailers look like inside and out, how will we know what to look for when we're keeping our eyes peeled???
