Stolen trailer. Upland, Ca.

Discussion in 'The Hokey Ass Message Board' started by TUMBLEWEED GARAGE, Dec 17, 2011.

  1. My car trailer was stolen last night from my shop in Upland. It is an older black in color wood deck with about a 30 inch dovetail. The shop is in a complex at Foothill Bl, and Monte Viste Ave (Right at the montclair border). The trailer has a 4000 pound Warn winch on the front tongue. It requires a 2 5/16 ball. Has mis-mathced tail lights. Ramps go in at the back however. They are hard to put in so I leave them on the bed. It has one D-ring on the outside of each side of the tongue and also at the very rear on the inside rails. It has stake pockets also. It has a flip up jack welded to the tongue that would be a pain in the ass to remove. It has 10 ply tires on it with one mis-match tire on white spoke wheels One of the hooks on the safety chains is missing the spring keeper.

    I will look to see if i can find a photo.

    Any help on this would be much appreciated. I use this trailer several times a week.

    Thanks...... Mark (323) 228-5126

    My unlocked single axle open trailer diappeared from my shop parking lot a couple years ago. I often wonder if it went for scrap or is somehow had its VIN changed and is sold & retitled to someone else. Was probably worth about $500 but it sure was handy for hauling old motors etc. Never heard anything after making the police report.

    My trailers are now locked/secured by heavy cables and locks to buildings, poles, big-assed trees etc. Nothing is sacred anymore......

    A**HOLES!!!!!! I will keep an eye out for you
     
  8. I seem to have a lot of pictures of pieces of the trailer. I never took a photo of the trailer by it's self. The plate was not on the trailer when it was stolen. I have had 3 plates stolen in the last year so I remove it when I park it in the complex. Thanks for the help.... Mark

    Guessing they stole it so they could steal a car. Keep a watch any local hambers.
    Good luck in finding her.

    F*CK what a bummer. I had my trailer loaded for the LA roadster show last year and it was stolen the night before.
    Will keep an eye out for it.

    my little half a datsun truck trailer is chained to a pole. then there is a ball in the socket (with a wheel welded to it so I can roll it around) and that is locked as well.

    won't stop a determined thief, but it will at least slow them down some.

    Your trailer looks identical to mine (a twin) that was stolen 2 weeks ago in Riverside.
    Is it a Carson Trailer?
    I will be on the lookout for yours and mine.

    Riverside PD believes it is South of the Border as it was set up for my off road race car.

    Since I live right on 97 in Wa state I'll keep an eye out. There have been stranger things than stolen trailers being towed past here. Most likely someone stole that one because they needed one to use to haul something. Any cars stolen in the area about the same time? or a broken 4X that all the sudden left the spot it was sitting in in the middle of the night being as you are in the desert? Low lifes come in all sizes, flavors and recreational hobbies.

    If the thieves don't pull off the reflective strips it should be pretty easy to spot from a distance.

    Hey, sorry about your trailer.. My Featherlite open one car disappeared last month. I'll let you know if I see anything suspiciously similar to yours. Alan
