On mine they busted the door window and let themselves in that way. About $200 to repair that.

We don't leave anything of value in ours and actually removed the front TV.

I wish they had stole the dang front TV. 2004 model CRT and hard to get out. All they took was about $10 in cash and my slippers. Ticked me off because those slippers were comfortable.

They broke into the coach next to ours and got his TV/Stereo system. He had a $1,000 alarm system installed on his coach a month prior to this. So much for alarm systems.

You realize that thieves know you will replace the TV's and come back for the new ones.

I know store beside my house. Mucho better

Don't know where I'm going, spose I'll get there anyway.

When they broke into our storage area, they got almost every unit's TVs and a bunch of other stuff too. Then tthey stold a motor home and a cargo trailer to haul everything away. The MO around here is rent a storage unit, drop off a few buddies during the day, after closing they emerge and clean the place out. It's happened at several places in the Dayton, OH area. Police are not particularly interested in looking for the peeps.

If you think that the guys that broke into your trailer are heartless ; wait till you get to B.C. Ferries. You have to stay on the island 3 weeks to make it pay off.
Good luck on the summer weather thing, coldest April/may on record here, June so far 2c a day below average. Van. June, so far, only 3 days in the 20's. Great that your coming this way ; bring a sweater!

My 5r has a hatch in the floor that accesses the storage compartment. Almost every storage compartment key is the same. Even on different makes of trailers.

Where we stored our 5ver last year. the units were backed in with about 12" of room between them. No room to extend slide outs, no room to open the door and get in. The end units had a sea container on one end of the line and a truck camper one the other end with the rear door back up against a concrete wall.

Nothing was disturbed!
