Stolen Motor Home

Just got this from FMCA and thought it might be a good idea to pass it along. Doesn't say if the RV was in for service or belonged to CW.

The Florida RV Trade Association reports that a 2006 Fleetwood Bounder Diesel 38S has been stolen from Camping World of Kissimmee, Florida. The coach was taken Nov. 18 between 11 a.m. and noon.

The unit is silver and tan. The side windows are slightly fogged.

Unit VIN: 4UZACJDC67CX85697

If you have information that could lead to the recovery of this vehicle, please contact:

Amazing that someone would steal a big DP. Maybe they plan to paint it in camouflage so nobody will suspect. Pretty tough to hide I would think.

There are so many Motor Homes on the Roads these Days that with a Switched Plate and a bit of Road Dirt they all look remarkably alike!
Unless the Highway Patrol is really bored ,i doubt that too many get stopped for a registration check and a saavy thief would have a pretty easy time getting away with it!

"Sorry to pull you over folks. Looking for a rig looks just like yours.". I can hear it now.

Hope they find it and it was CWs and not a private party now homeless or missing out on their holiday trip to visit family.

We found that out by mistake a few years back. We bought 2 new pickups for the company fleet from a local bankruptcy auction. 1 Ford, 1 GMC.

About 4 years (and countless parking tickets and moving violations ) later someone finally noticed that the plates for the red GMC were one the white Ford and had been all along.

You'd think a cop looking at a white Ford would notice the ownership in his hand said red GMC but it took a new employee trying to find the right truck in the lot to catch the error.

BTW, the observant young lad is now a supervisor.

Maybe a "prepper" stole it and it's under a camouflage net already?

a few years back there was a tv show, let's say 60/60, on stolen vehicles. on an island i think in the bahamas the public officals were driving stolen cars. mercedes, lexas, high end. so mh might be living on an island or in a chop shop. think about the resale price when parted out.
