    That sucks man, sorry. How did they remove it? Pick the locks, break the mounts? I don't know how those are secured.

    8x 13mm nuts/bolts. Pain in the ass to bolt down. Can't believe someone got away with it without waking me up.
    Would have been easier to break the roof rails but they didn't.

    I’ve had sleep like that before too. But can’t, you know, just unzip the door and see where the thief took you?




    I kid. Sorry to hear. That sucks. Best of luck in its recovery.

    They always look like that anyway if you don't note the vehicle underneath! dohhh.....

    Teasing aside pyromaniacman129, that's b.s. and hope it gets resolved. Is there anyway to lock those things to the rack?

    Kinda. Security mounts that make it harder but then they just cut the bars on the rack. Just shitty it's at that point in Seattle. I need a garage again.
    Honestly wondered about it being a homeless thing but based on how quiet/precise of an operation and how big it is there's no way they did it without a car.

    Well bummer that happened. I bought my daughter a bike years ago as her only transportation. Someone cut the cable and off it went. I was extremely pissed. But your damned either way it seems if they have the tools and desire.

    I was renting a u haul in South Seattle and they said they have been routinely having their trucks stolen. Homeless guys steal the truck, steal copper wire (or roof tents, apparently) and the ditch the truck later. So it could have definitely been a homeless guy.

    Looking at travel trailers - any decent 4 season brands or models to look into?

    If you mean truly four seasons as in real winter and good for skiing then IMHO Bigfoot is the only option worth considering. Made in Armstrong BC. Check this out.

    Pricey for sure but resale value is great and not so expensive if buying with US$

    Definitely other options out there, such as Oliver, Northwoods, Lance, etc.

    IMO, the biggest factor in making a tow trailer winter capable is applying a skirt (and even better with a small heater) around the trailer, along with determining a power source to run both the heater, and the furnace fans. Ducting of the furnace to the tanks and plumbing is next, and maybe tank heating pads (again needing a stable power source). Condensation control third. Insulation of the rest of the unit including the windows can be managed by a couple little tricks like reflectex and a mattress heater.

    Which are all good reasons to avoid travel trailers for ski lot parking (not to mention pulling the thing on dicey roads). Honestly, if someone wants a ski lot worthy camper, a slide in camper in a 4x4 truck or an awd or 4x4 van makes the most sense in my mind.

    My buddy has an Arctic Fox. Does well in winter conditions and hasn't had any issues.

    Trip number 3 in the van last weekend and I am stoked on it. Just enough space for the wife and I and it's ready to go at any time.

    Updated my accommodations for the winter. The truck camper was awesome but needed a little more space. Gotta add some better snow tires and should be all set.

    Looks like a sweet machine. What kind of equipment did you go for? Furnace or cooktop maybe?

    Espar desiel furnace and tankless water heater. No built in cooktop, but I carry a instant pot and a jet boil. Works pretty well for coffee and hot lunch while in from skiing.

    Setup really well for family camping too
