2003 Bailey Pageant Moselle (VIN SGBSC07BY3030246).
My son-in-law and daughter bought a 2003 Bailey Pageant Moselle last year after a few years tenting. Their two children loved it, too. They've gone off to France today - unfortunately with a borrowed tent in a trailer as they discovered the caravan had been stolen when they went to the "safe" compound near Totton Southampton last night. Despite the locked gates, the hitchlock, wheel clamps, CRiS registration, etched windows, etcetera, it was taken between 4th and 19th August.

Do any stolen vans ever turn up (other than in Spain?) - what are the chances and what should I do while they are away to try to trace it? I have all their documents (VIN SGBSC07BY3030246). Many thanks for any help, Terry email terryfwall@hotmail.com

FLEETWOOD SONATA PRELUDE CHASIS No. ZYISA53FA6UK01094

Can anyone help please we are a family who have no savings now as we blew it all on buying a brand new fleetwood sonata prelude 6 birth on 21st July 2006 from south wales caravans in Treorchy. Whilst we had the caravan we was away in it all the time over the weekends, school hols, Xmas and the new year etc it was stolen despite being locked and all security equipment being in place in may 2007 from behind our friends house in a town called Blaina South Wales where we live. Inside the caravan was all our possessions kids bikes, 2 digital cameras, photo's of my wife and kids at our renewal of our wedding vows (which cannot be replaced as memory card was in camera) T.V, DVD player, freeview box, bike rack, loads of clothes including a new design asda uniform where i worked. There was a awning and groundsheet also. All the caravan documents was inside the caravan except the registration document. We only returned home from staying away in it that day on the night it was stolen the registration on the caravan was BJ51 UGN we was unable to get the caravan to our insurance stated storage address due to it being late so we got it as close as possible. On the rear drivers side of the caravan had been bumped and was just sealed up on a temporary fix and on the driver side of the caravan there was some scratches from the trees and on the passenger side where the door is there are several scratches from the awning poles. Also inside the caravan the worktop by the sink and the main dining table had a dent in it.
Unfortunately our insurance will not pay us due to it not being at the storage address at the time of theft, so we are begging anyone who has any information with regards to this theft to come forward and we will pay a reward for any information that may lead us to finding our caravan.
Also we would be more than willing to pay the thief to bring us the caravan back as it is something we will never be able to afford again EVER

caravan stolen from nr Grayshott and Hindhead

Last night (5:00am, 6th march 2008) we had our 1974, cream with biege stripe, caravan stolen from
outside our house in Headley Down, nr Grayshott and Hindhead, in Hampshire.It was taken away by a large 4x4 pick-up (make, colour and reg. unsure) and was dragged down the
road for a while with the caravan brakes still on, which will no doubt have resulted in some largeflat spots to the tyres.We are sending out enquiries, in hope, to see if anyone has been offered an old style caravan
(outside was dirty when stolen) for sale or to store.The caravan was handbuilt inside and out by my father and grandfather between 1974 and 1976 and hasbeen used for family holidays ever since. Although a lot of caravans are stolen every year, this
caravan has 34 years of sentimental attachement which is worth far more than the caravan itself.So if you have been or are approached with a caravan that looks like the attached photos, please
could you contact us on 01428 712849, Coombss@cf.ac.uk or coombs@headley100.freeserve.co.ukWe would also be very grateful if you could forward this email to any others within the caravan
industry, so that we can spread our search as wide as possible.Steve Coombs Derek Coombs
Hobby Excellent 650 UMFE – 2002Chassis No: WH27B25LOF239596

 

We upgraded from our older, much smaller caravan to this one.
It needed some work and TLC and we had almost completed the task.

This caravan was our pride and joy and was kept safely as we thought in our garden, however on 11/01/08 someone came into our garden at night through the adjacent Pub car park and dismantled the fence and towed it away. We had even taken off the tow hitch and had it chained up for extra security, but to no avail as the thieves must have come prepared.

There is a crack to the casing to the tow bar on the front of the caravan, also the flap over the electric hook up has the bottom right corner snapped off and a crack in the back window by the door. There is also a saucepan scold mark on the worktop to the right of the cooker, the door to the drink's cabinet has the glass missing and it has a brand new freestanding cooker and halogen fire. It was also fully loaded when it was stolen complete with TV, DVD, CD player, awning, tool box/tools, loungers and folding table.

The caravan was stolen from the village of Marsh Gibbon, Oxfordshire on 11th January 2008 in the early hours.

1970's Vickers gypsy caravan

I wonder if you might be able to help. I recently bought an amazing
old 1970's Vickers gypsy caravan to restore (one of the ones with all
the chrome and stainless steel)...but last night it was stolen from
the yard where it was being stored up near Peterborough. As you might
imagine, I'm totally gutted. It was a dream project for me and my
family. I absolutely love these caravans and had great plans to
restore a great bit of history to it's former glory.

The caravan is an early 1970's Vickers with very distinctive, and
from what I know, very rare, red banding on the trim. It is towable
but is in need of quite a lot of work - quite a bit of the trim is
missing (most of the missing bits were in it when it was stolen),
including the wheel arches, some side trim and one of the front
bumpers. Interior is intact but again needs lots of tlc. The tyres
are very perished and the white paintwork is pretty grubby and
distressed and needs a re-spray. There is also damage to the
stainless around the door.

I know that this sort of caravan is not the sort of thing that would
usually make it onto your site but as it is so unusual I'm sure that
it would grab the attention of any keen caravaner so I'm hoping that
someone out there spots it!

It was stolen from just outside Peterborough sometime in the early
hours of 10th January.

Any information can come either to me (in the absolute strictest of
confidence) or to Corby Police on 01536 207660 (crime ref.
NB25473/07). My mobile is 07976 249699 I am also offering a cash reward for any information that successfully leads to
its recovery.

2007 Sterling Europa 620 (Twin Axle)

 

Stolen from Lenborough, Buckingham, Bucks early hours of November 25th 2007.
CRIS Vin number SGDTT4ASW70324686. Crime reference number AG9853423-07Caravan had a Bulldog wheel disc on each of the axles near side wheels. It also had an AL-KO hitchlock fitted. All corner legs were down and it had a Protec green cover fitted.To take the caravan, the thieves broke the padlock on the five bar gate and lifted it off it's hinges to open it. They then removed the cover, somehow removed both wheel locks and the hitch lock. The marks on the grass then suggest that they manhandled it round and out of the gate prior to hitching it onto a vehicle. Broken wheel locks and hitch lock were taken away by the thieves, with only small scrapings/chips remaining on the grass.Caravan is as new and has only been used for 6 nights since new. Only distinguishing mark is a very slight graze/crease on the upper off-side about 4 feet long and two thirds of the way back. This being caused by a tree branch. This is not a scratch, more of a slight distortion of the flat aluminium side panel.The grey plastic cap that screws on top of the heater roof mounted vent pipe was pulled off when they removed the caravan cover. And if they haven't removed it, on the upper near side toward the rear, there is a plastic bracket fixed to the side of the caravan with two 10'ish horizontal strips of black tank tape where the external TV aerial clipped on (see photo).As you would expect, various items were still in the caravan including two awnings, external TV aerial, water container, waste container, tool kit in plastic case, fishing rod/reel kit, two sets of Hunter wellingtons in Hunter bag etc etc.

(Warwickshire) 01675 464444 We took our van to Somers Wood Caravan site at Meriden near the NEC on Sunday 14th of October. We had been at a Rally in Malvern and arranged to take it up to the site in readiness for visiting the caravan show the following weekend. We have used the site on a regular basis in the past, sometimes leaving it there during the week and returning for weekends without problems.Our intention was to go to the site on Friday 19th October and leave with our van on Sunday 21st October.We had a telephone call from the site owner at 1.40pm on Friday 19th to say
that the van had been stolen during the previous night, Thursday 18th
October, and hadn’t been discovered missing until mid-day on Friday. The
Police had been informed by the site owner.They took our van between 10.41pm and 10.58pm. They were seen coming in to
the site on CCTV but as they had the main beam on their car, and covered the number plates, no registration was visible. Also they used the sun visors to hide their faces.Distinguishing features are a slight crease above the "525 SL" lettering on the top right hand side of the door where one of the awning poles slipped against it. There was a split in the skirt on the A frame.
Inside the bathroom, the shower hadn't been fitted quite square and some
additional panelling was fitted to make it look tidy.
Swift Challenger 490SE (1993)

 

. Stolen from a “secure” compound just outside Stafford at the junction of the A51 and A518. This was our first caravan bought locally and was being stored at the same site it had been stored at for many years by it’s previous owner! My wife and children are truly mortified that when I went to collect it at 6pm tonight (1st August 2007) for a long awaited holiday, we found it had been stolen from the compound. I am lead to believe it has been stolen within the last 7 days!! Distinguishing features are few from other models of the same type, but it does have an additional external 240V socket fitted on the same side as the door and also has a wheel trim missing. Inside was an almost new Awning by NR Awnings, and all fittings ready for use. The colouring on the bottom edge of the van has slight smudging due to someone trying to clean with some kind of thinners in places, but other than that, there are few other things to identify it! Interior was a faded burgundy colour but in very good overall condition.
CRIS Registration number is SGD5093SWP0047415 but unfortunately we do not have the chasis number. Staffordsire Crime Reference Number is CA18507-07 and my contact number is 07801 049426 or 01785 615877 Distinguishing Features External 240V weatherproof socket fitted near kitchen window Broken rear window stay bracket Missing wheel trim on opposite side to door grey plastic pads on corner feet
broken shower head/tap broken clip that attaches to rail on rear table

Whilst travelling to the Isle of Wight and with the intention of stopping over, they stopped at Sutton Scotney Services southbound on the A34 (Winchester). They went to get food from the restaurant, when they returned, it had been taken off the back of the car, the van was locked on so we are not sure how it was removed. Obviously the caravan was fully laden with 2 weeks holiday clothes and belongings, and as well as the usual tv, microwave, digital camera etc that can be replaced by insurance, there were many personal effects that cannot be replaced (photo's, gifts etc). They have now continued on to the Isle of Wight so that they don't lose thier holiday money, but obviously, the situaton has led then to have to replace everything, clothes, food, toiletries, bedding etc. The van details are (apologies for lack of VIN no, they can not get this to me until they return and I have no photo's) Lunar Rendezvous 2004 twin axle, end bed. It has (or had) a bike rack (with bikes) with if removed, will leave distinctive holes. There are several dents around the door where the keys have marked it when the door has been opened. There are two dents in the work surfaces, one next to the sink, and one under the drinks cabinet. The outer door catch has been heavily glued and is noticeable.

Ace Supreme Twinstar (VIN No SGDT005SW50312047)
2005 model Ace Supreme Twinstar (VIN No SGDT005SW50312047) stolen from Moreton Valence site at 01.30 hrs on Saturday 13th January 2007. The thieves broke through the locked access gate, went round the site to scope the best caravan to steal then proceeded to work on the security locks on my van. They appeared to jack the "quality" wheel clamp apart from behind the wheels and somehow bend the top arm around over the top of the wheel. There was an al-ko hitch lock on the front. The thieves appeared to lever the sides of the hitch lock upwards and sideways probably using some purpose made bar. I haven't found the rear stabiliser padlocks. They then broke into the caravan and I assume broke the alarm and tracking system. I got a call at about 1.15 in the morning at home but slept through it. The message in the morning was that there was a "power down" of the tracking system. All this was picked up on CCTV but unfortunately not very clear. All this took about 45 minutes. This is information to let you know how the theft was done. If you know of anything please contact Phil on 07798 848474 or Gloucestershire police on 0845 090 1234.
