Our Black Complete Campsite Camper Trailer was stolen Wed night (6th June) from THE ESPLANADE in Mona Vale, NSW (Cnr Eric Green Drive and Lucinda Place) -

It was wheel clamped and padlocked around the tow bar so the thieves obviously checked it out first and brought the appropriate gear

It is a Complete Campsite Nomad Extreme Off Road 9X4 Camper Trailer - 
NSW Registration U22068, 
VIN 6T9T20R08705BF001
Police Report: E47680215

It is a soft top camper that has been fully optioned with sealed and lockable side storage compartments, Swing over boat rack & 2 x Solar panels. Spare wheel at front. It has 'Complete Campsite" logo on back and sides of trailer

PLEASE SHARE SO OTHERS CAN KEEP A LOOK OUT FOR IT - it is a custom design so there are no others quite the same!

As a matter of interest what type of wheel clamp were you using. The reason I ask is that theives attempted to steal our neighbours caravan a couple of months ago, and to cut a long story short I followed them and we recovered the van. Since then they have attached a ‘clamp-it’ brand wheel clamp, and I was thinking of putting one on my trailer. They cover the wheel nuts. But if they can be removed I might need to rethink.

And I hope you recover the trailer, unfortunately the police said when interviewed about our neighbours is that it is happening very frequently these days.

Wheel clamp was a Heavy Duty Anti-Theft Tire Wheel Clamp Lock - yellow in colour - seemed pretty sturdy - but obviously not!!

Wheel clamps that use a barrel lock assembly with a key (like ignition locks) are pretty useless. Thieves carry battery-powered drills (stolen, too!) that they use to drill out the barrel. The same goes for the steering wheel lock bars on cars.

Use a BIG hefty, hi-tensile chain, and a container padlock attached to solid plates welded to the chain. They can't cut the bolt on container padlocks. Do everything you can to make theft slow and hard work. Thieves like to work fast, the longer it takes to steal, the more likely they are to abandon the theft.

You'll be lucky to see it again, no-one checks everyone elses camper to see if its stolen, and new VIN plates are easy to acquire.
They just tell the local rego authority that they've built themselves a new camper and want a VIN plate for it. Then they go and re-register it as a new, custom-built camper.

Will try to keep an eye out - I live down @ Cromer. However I suspect if the clamp wasn't removed - it may have been trucked off.....
