Also, having worked the back gate this war, the small trailer lot was directly across from the Watch pavillion. Anyone who wanted to break into a trailer would have to do so right in front of the Watch - assuming that anyone volunteered for that shift. Unfortunately, at this war, this was not a safe assumption to make. :/

That is true. However, my trailer was damaged between Thursday and Saturday
of war week. There was an obvious attempt at breaking the locks. When the
locks held, the tongue of the trailer was beaten with a sledge or ball peen
hammer such that the tongue had to be bent back into shape with a crowbar.

Had my trailer been attached and locked to my car, if the locks were
defeated, the weight of the trailer would have made it difficult to push it
far enough away from my car so as to hitch it to another vehicle. I know how
difficult my trailer is to move, even unloaded. While it may still have been
stolen, the time and effort needed to move the trailer out from behind my
car far enough to hitch it another vehicle in order to steal it would make
it less attractive to the thieves.

I don't know what the perfect solution is to this issue. I do know that
having trailers parked with easy access in remote lots has caught the
attention of the thieves. Now that they have absconded with one, I can
guarantee you these bandits will be back next year looking for more
