If you see our stolen casita, please call the police

Our casita got stolen in Feb.2014 in a storage we rented in Carrollton, texas.
We loved it and invested a lots of upgrades to her, such as weight distribution, high lifted, temperature control system... It was our precious baby. I had been sick for wks, coz I was too sad.
If you see it or any suspension casita, please do call the police (police has the report, and will take care of it).
Policy report #2014-1322

There is some minor damage of the outside of the door right under the door handle with some white paint to cover it. Very obvious.
The last 6 digitals of vehicle id is 213386 (full ID see photo). License plate is 5LJ296 (but this may be replace or take off by the thief/thieves). Year of 2009.
Your help is highly appreciated.

Adding one more pic for vehicle ID

I'm adding one more pic here.
We knew that it is small chance that we can find her back, but we have to try everything we can.
Thank you, all.

Oh, how sickening. I'm sorry that your Casita was stolen.

If you call the police, please let them know the Policy report #2014-1322 to look at.

OK, Now how about the name of the department where is was reported and their phone number. I can assure you the most local P.D.'s won't be able to cross reference that report number.

BTW: Did it have a license plate? Do you know the number?

That is terrible news, Ashley. It is unlikely to show up in New England, but we will keep an eye out.

Don't rule out where it might show up for sale.

Years ago, in VA, I bought an Airstream Bambi that had Alabama plates and title. Turned out that: a) it had been stolen from a storage lot in VA, b) It had never been in Alabama, c) the entire re-registration process was done by a cousin living in AL. and d) Thanks to help from the Wally Bynum Airstream club we found out who it belonged to, got the perp arrested, got my money back, and the trailer went back to it's owner.

The victim should also post this on the Casita group and anywhere used FGRV's are being sold.

Sad to hear about your loss.

More pictures and descriptions might help. Do you have any that show the damage on the door? What colour is the interior? What model and layout is it?

Also add in the complete VIN. PD's can't do a stolen vehicle trace on a partial VIN number, they need all 17 digits.

Ashley, so sorry to hear! Posting interior photos would help a lot for people to be able to tell if they are looking at your trailer or not. Assuming it has some personalized features in the interior - not straight stock out of the show room.

Does the storage facility have a security video? When did you last see it ie put it in storage? (Which provides a time frame)

The Agency who took the report will enter the VIN # into SVS. ( Stolen vehicle system)

That is a bummer. Best wishes.

As it is with stolen cars VIN numbers are usually the first thing to be changed.

The Casita VIN due to the way Casita engraves them (see photo posted) would not be hard to change a number or two. May not be possible to positively ID the trailer using only its VIN.

But with cars....vin # are all over the place...some not made public. Hopefully Casita does that too. It actually looks like the number is handwritten in the pic! Yikes!!!
