    Thankfully this matter was cleared up quickly and trailer returned.. Our 24ft 5th wheel camper was stolen by the person who had once been allowed to live in it. AND NOTHING HAS BEEN DONE!! Of coarse she traded it for a truck that broke down just weeks after the illegal trade. So the tradee got truck back. So they have truck AND trailer. That may be karma at work on this thief… But still no trailer for RIGHTFUL OWNERS..! I think laws should be tougher on a $:^##
    Sorry theif!!

    A same this is 2019 you don’t steal someone elses stuff and really think it will stick !
    Sooner or later the truth will surface . Forensic stuff is amazing , you will get caught ,if not this year it will be tomorrow or the next day or the next year ,you will pay the price .leave stuff alone it is not worth the price you will pay, a person has a life and like money if you spend it foolishly it will soon be wasted.

    I think they have his age wrong. He is around 48 or 49 years old. Just sad! Glad they found the man’s trailer!
