Hi Everyone,

Well, it looks like we will not be going camping anytime soon. Our camper trailer was stolen from our courtyard overnight Monday!

The police & insurance have been contacted, but we have also put out alerts on our limited social media (every little bit helps). As a favour, I wonder if you could keep a lookout in your travels and also circulate the link below to any of your contacts you think could assist. We would appreciate it.

This camper is unique in that just one was ever built by Van Cruiser Caravans, so it should be readily recognized on the road. There is a photo of the van in the stolencaravanregistry site linked below:

Many thanks

Plodder, sorry to hear of your loss, but I wouldn't call that a camper trailer.............. I would also up the reward to at least a $1000.00, I presume it wasn't fitted with a tracker? Good luck finding it. John

Thanks John, I guess it's a little more than a trailer but a little less than a caravan. I'll certainly consider a tracker fitment in future.

Thieving mongrels, hope they are caught and maybe even punished severely by the courts.
Will keep an eye out for it on the Aust Day trip next Fri - Tues down the SE coast.

With such a distinctive van and VIN etc, what on Earth can they do with this ?
They can't easily reregister it, use it (they'd rightfully be looking over their shoulder wherever they went) and I assume it'd be too hard to scrap it for parts.
Just seems like a poor item for these lowlifes to deal with.

Will keep a look out here in SA.
2nd hand campers are big business here and many stolen from interstate end up here.

Cheers

Thanks Cruiser 91, your help is greatly appreciated. Yes, sadly from what I have been told, it seems that it is not difficult for the social parasites that steal our campers to rebirth them interstate.

Cheers

Hi Plodder,

I'm in Anglesea and will keep an eye out for it along the Great Ocean Road.
