Our bicycles were chained to the picnic bench overnight. They were gone the next morning, but the bike lock chain (which was supposed to be very tough to cut) was cut through. Lesson learned.

An old, raggedy boat cover stoats still worked, but I’m sure the thief was surprised when opening it. Another issue: the cover was custom fitted to my boat. Why would they want it?

At Oasis (outside of Las Vegas), as the owner of a new rig that I was in the process of fixing up, after I replaced its ugly bathroom door with a nice curtain, I left the pleated, plastic door on my site’s picnic table while I went out for lunch. This was both to deter people from taking my site and also because I was still in the process of figuring out how (or whether) to store and possibly re-use this door later on. That question was quickly answered for me because it was gone when I got back. Possibly the maintenance staff thought it was trash?

Oasis is a top notch RV park that when you arrive you drive through a gated area and then greeted by a guard directing you to where you need to go. All sites are assigned and there are no people driving around looking for sites. The help that work there saw your trash on the table and removed it probably think some lowlife left it there.

We were camped at Grand Canyon in our first travel trailer 10-15 years ago and had a couple of nice reclining camp chairs stolen at night. The only thing that stays outside would be the Harley and it’s normally cable locked through both wheels!

In ‘95 we visited Carlsbad State Park In So. Ca. on the first trip in a brand new motorhome. As we checked in, the girl at the gate told us to put our bikes in at night. I questioned her, and she said yes put the inside your motorhome at night. I thought that’s crazy, I’m not putting bikes inside our brand new motorhome. We left our bikes clamped and locked on the bike rack that night. Sure enough, we got up to discover the lock had been cut, hardware removed and one bike gone. We’ve never been back.
We were at Yucaipa Regional park in So. Ca. when it was obviously neighborhood residents, that roamed the campground and took ice chests, skateboards, bikes, and anything that wasn’t locked. The sheriff said it had been going on and was the locals. Now there are signs advising to lock things and get to know your neighbors.

I was camping with a friend in the Thousand Islands area of Canada at a family owned campgrounds. Where I have stayed many times and it was not to far from where I lived in Upstate NY. We had gotten there early on a Friday and gotten everything set up and headed to town to go to the store and pick a few things up. When we got back there was a young couple with two small kids setting up their tent on the site next to us they were having so trouble with the tent so we gave them a hand. They told us that they made plans to on a tour boat ride for three hours of the Thousand Islands on Saturday. I had done it before and told them it was lots of fun. We rented a boat for Saturday and were going out fishing. We headed out early Saturday to go fishing and they were having breakfast. They wished us good luck fishing and we told to have fun on the tour boat. When we got back in the late afternoon their campsite was empty all packed up and gone? We thought that maybe one of the kids got sick and they left and went home or something? About an hour later around 3 in the afternoon they pulled in from their boat tour and everything was gone stolen!

Last year someone took my 30 amp electrical cord and 50 to 30 amp electrical connections cord. I learned to keep the compartment doors locked.

The only time I can remember something going missing was about 50 years ago. It was a fancy citronella candle that was on our table. We believe some child took it.

I apologize to those who are offended when I lock my rig up as we head to the clubhouse. It is not my neighbors who I am locking out; it is someone who may be wandering through and is looking for an “opportunity”.

Foolishly left my propane stove out on the picnic table at Grand Canyon. Stolen.

I had a new unlocked folding bicycle stolen at a big RV Rally in the fair grounds in central Orlando about 10 years ago.

Approximately 3 years ago we had 1 folding camp chair stolen from our campsite. We had two chairs out but they took only one chair, go figure

Once, back in the late 70’s. I thought that the world had gone to hell at that time. We had left our campsite to go for a hike. When we returned our things had been gone through. A camera and some other things were taken.

I came back from an outing and my sewer hose and all connections were gone (had a truck camper at the time.) As I was searching around for it (???) a fellow camper brings it back and said it was blowing away … ( I had secured it good before I left as it was windy) I think asked him if he had the clear connector which goes with it? He brought it back to me shortly.

Also, on two occasions in different places, I suspected siphoning gas from my truck… but in 27 years that is not a bad average.
