Sorry that this happened. RVs tend to be easy hits. I haven't had any problems but then there's no access during non-business hours. My co-worker trailer has been broken into 3 times (different storage places).

Great choice for "Living within my means" and camping for one...

You would think after they saw that I removed the battery and propane tanks and cover that they would know I'm smart enough not to leave anything valuable inside. The next time, I'm going to laminate a sign and attach it to the cover saying there's nothing inside and all valuable removed. Hopefully they can read.

The storage places we have around where I live I could see this happening. I am so glad I can park mine next to my garage.

This makes me wonder if you should have put an OPEN sign on the door & left it unlocked. There might have been less damage too.

Truthfully, the whole thing stinks, lets hope they are caught.

That really sucks, nothing worse than the damage they do for what they are taking. I am also glad I have access to park mine next to the garage.

That happened to us a few years ago. We had our Class C parked at an RV lot that was gated and fenced in. Even had the barbed wire around the top of the fencing. One night it was so foggy that you couldn't see a hand in front of your face, and the next day we got a call from the RV lot owners saying our RV had been broken into, along with several others. They broke the window in the door to get in. Nothing was stolen and no damage inside thank goodness, so replacing the glass was all we had to do. But still!!!

Oh that is just a drag!! I am sorry that you have to go through this just for some small items that are not worth much.

I hope the repairs go smoothly.

Sorry for your trouble. We had a break in 12-14 years ago when we stored our camper at my uncles house. Very minor damage and nothing taken that I can remember. (We had removed valuables as you did)
What I do remember is the lousy feelings afterwards.

Good luck to you.

I feel really badly for you. Hope they get these ding-bats. Probably kids.
That facility needs a good CCTV system with a few dummy cameras.
