Did the corvette have onstar ? Looks like it may be a new enough model. If so
just have onstar GPS track it.

Makes a case for owning an ENCLOSED trailer for a nice item like this.

I would agree with OnStar, if it had it - hopefully it did and that can be used to track.

I don't think an enclosed trailer would have changed a thing. The CG is only a few miles from some sort of prison facility and on the far west side of ABQ. I have stayed there before and the new sites are wide open for easy view. I would stay there again - but don't think I would leave a a Motorhome or anything sit there unattended. Gated and locked storage facility is the only way to go and even then things can happen.

So sorry this happened to you.
Steve

As someone said earlier there is a good chance it's below the Border. Too bad we don't have check stations going across the border. A lot of vehicles would be saved.

I'll keep my eyes open in my area, sure would be nice to see both units returned to you.

Chris, This is bad news for sure, Sorry about it and not sure how to go about recovery.
I take it that the keys for the vet were either inside your rig perhaps?
I suspect your unit went south but I could be wrong.

About 3 years ago, we had relation that had 5r and Truck in a Park in AZ. They went on a cruise and when they returned to the park, the truck was gone. Police theorized that it went south.

We all hope for the best outcome in this for you.
I would have to ask the question to other reading...... How does one preclude this from happening?

The only thing you can do is not leave your stuff unattended unfortunately.

DW and I used to leave our B camper in an open lot for months, while cruising. I installed a hidden battery disconnect switch with removable key. Came back once to find door lock pulled out, hood open, and marks where some slime ball tried to jump start it. Insurance covered damage to lock. I installed the switch in the cable from battery to starter. Cheaper than alarm system!

I agree, i install kill switch's in all my vehicle's. It's almost fun looking for a place or a way to hide them. A pen put in a special spot is a good one, next time i may try a magnetic switch....

There is no definitive way to protect a car from being stolen, even a kill switch.

Most of the time the perpetrators just want it to chop down, so, winch in onto a trailer and drive away - all depends on how much time they have, or, jack it up and put wheel dollies under it, or, use a wrecker. Doesn't matter if they scrub the wheels down when they tow it around the corner, pop the window and release any brake locking mechnisims, or quickly disconnect the drive shaft. They just don't care.

Now pulling an RV up on a flatbed would be a challenge, but it can be done.

It's just the pessimist in me.

giving this was so many days ago i am sure if there was a video that its no more

if you was here in the usa talking to a bank or ATM setting next to the road would have video of that many days back but getting this would be so so hard

cops could look at some roiling all the time red light cams but again you dont live here so getting some one to move on that is hard

guys in the RV park that would be next to you would have moved on / or could not recall

i would really keep a eye out on CL and ebay for parts that was your same year RV/car

if you find some thing that stands out email and ask them for a vin to make sure it well fit your year car/rv fake part your looking for if its some one not thinking you may get some info you need for the cops

you see this alot when ppl take a AC unit off the side of the house 2 months latter its on CL with out and with pics again email for pics

you are the one that going to find it/find what left of this thing on your own

PS look on CL down south you may find the RV/car in one piece there
