THe RV was stored at a covered and fenced storage near the Jacksonville International Airport. Vehicles require a scan card to enter and exit but people can walk in anytime. The parking garage has day parking and Enterprise Car parking areas along with monthly car and RV/Boat parking areas.

The POS jumped the curbs with the F-150 they also stole. They also broke into a houseboat next to our RV and stole all his electronics and tools, they also tried to steal his portable generator but could not get it off the boat. Like someone mentioned you can haul a lot of stuff in a RV. More then likely they slipped the door lock on the RV popped the tumble on the steering column and used a screw driver to unlock and turn the ignition, driving it out.

There may not be any front end damage but for sure rear damage as they BACKED out crashing through the gate. SO the video of them leaving does show a tag number.

No tag number no way to notify the owner and no way to identify who got their RV stolen. That is until we show up to wake the RV up to go camping the next day. Then the police officer was called back out and he completed his report.

Wow that is nice rig. I wish you well in it's recovery. Trying to remember that old song that says if it was not for bad luck you would have no luck at all You say they they backed it out crashing the gate!!! These must have been some pros to do all of that in the dark. If I ever store my RV, I will turn off the chassis battery switch. They would have to be pretty bold and smart to find the switch to turn it back on.

Yes i would say that these POS have done this before. The house batteries were physically disconnected (something I added in the past). Now to start and run the engine that is engine battery and no that was not disconnected. I will say that a GPS tracker WILL be a part of our next camper for sure.

On a side note here is how insurance is going to work. The camper itself is covered by our vehicle insurance. All the inside STUFF we have, like house hold items and tow bars and Garmin RV GPS basically anything that was not in it when it was manufactured and in it when it was stolen gets covered by home owners insurance and so far that list is over 8k. The only good thing about that is for us it is the same company and the adjusters work together.

One of my co workers had his Motorhome stored in a storage lot and a couple of illegals broke into it and were living in it, his fresh water tank was full, LP was full and holding tanks empty when he parked it, the illegals ate all the food, ran the furnace, filled up the holding tanks and took a bunch of their clothes and valuables, security guard spotted the lights on one night and the two were arrested, they just sent them back across the border, my friends wife said she would never step foot in it again let alone sleep in the bed so they had it cleaned up and sold it, I keep my coach parked in my drive way, never had a problem, I know most people do not read their insurance policy until something happens, hope yours comes through for you,

I hope they find our motorhome quickly and with limited damage. I also hope our insurance holds up their end too. Like I said, not quite how I had envisioned this afternoon to happen........


Terrible, truly sorry for your loss. At least a large unit like yours should be found. It's a matter of time. Hopefully you have full coverage. Best of luck. God bless.

Nice of them to inform you before you got the shock of seeing it missing from your spot.

As long as you informed your carrier where the MH was stored and can prove the normal things like it’s a fenced & gated facility (most are live in manger) your insurance Co. should step up! Be advised Even though it was beyond your control your rates will go up at some point... By chance did you pay for the storage facilities insurance? The facility also has a responsibility to carry insurance protecting the property. So putting a claim in to their insurance company will prevent that! If you didn’t it certainly wouldn’t hurt to inquire about what they are willing to do about it? They certainly do have a limited amount of responsibility as far as securing the property to protect your property!! If they balk I’m almost positive your attorney will advise them otherwise??
Wish you luck & hope when they find it it’s worth it??

Oh man, I am so sorry! We have a Chateau 31w, I would be beside myself. Ours is in our back yard, at our house, never thought about storage, too hard to have to go get it to load, etc. We have been on a trip every month since we have had it.
I certainly hope the POS that did this pays the price. People are just stupid...you can not fix stupid. Prayers for its safe return. ��❤️

So the video DOES show the tag #?

My insurance would provide a rental to be able to use a reservation we have.

How much is the per day limit on your rental coverage?
(A lot of RV policies won't come close to covering the actual cost... )

Not sure you are allowed to ask that question? "Maybe it does and maybe it don't"

I looked to see what the coverage was ,but it only said they would arrange
it. They probably have contractors like they do for road service.
