40-foot motorhome disappears from owner’s front yard

You probably wouldn’t consider that your 40-foot motorhome could be stolen from your front yard and not be noticed, but Simone Snyder has changed her mind when her RV mysteriously disappeared over the weekend, reports WWBT in Chesterfield, VA.

Snyder was in the process of restoring and converting the motorhome into a mobile hair salon and had sunk $50,000 into it, until her plans to take “Scissors Hair Studio” on the road came to an abrupt stop.

“There was a lot invested in it,” said Snyder. “Everything for the conversion was inside of the bus. There was engine work that needed to be done. It works on an air system, so that needed to be done.”

Snyder says according to officers, a tow truck likely took the would-be beauty-bus. “We’re talking about a very very heavy vehicle,” said Snyder. “There weren’t a lot of tire tracks. There wasn’t a lot of dirt moved. It almost looked like it was airlifted out of there, wasn’t a lot of evidence of difficulty in maneuvering it out of there.”

The police report also mentions a 10-foot utility trailer and heating units were also stolen from Snyder’s property.

Don’t know what kind of RV he’s got but I’ve had TTs, 5th wheels, and now 2 different brands of motorhomes and all have had very sturdy ladders. I weigh 198 but have been as heavy as 230 and have never had a problem with the ladder.
