yea thats what i thought. when i ordered my enclosed trailer i thought about not getting a side but then decided to get one. once i pick up the trailer i am putting plywood and 2x4's over the side door so there is no access to it. i figured if i didnt get the side door it would be harder to sell if i ever decided to get rid of it.

I know it, matter of fact you beat me to saying it, on the other hand...

I can kind of see why some might think or say that.

Unfortunately it's not, at least I never got any more respect because of it, but years ago the fact
that someone stole MY stuff just because I had never had it happen did cross my mind.

Looking back thou, even if that was the reason it was more than likely out of the thief thinking that since
it had never happened to me then that means I could afford it the most, or some such sick load of justification.

Very true, but having one's stuff stolen could add a ton of "unproductive" time to the daily routine, too.

I always locked my side door from the inside.....

yeah getting stuff stolen seems to be a rite of passage...

one thing I did, on all my equipment was to engrave a unique asset number on the unit. took a pic of it and then keep that in the binder int eh truck. I was able to get a stolen blower back this way... went to a pawn shop the pawn guy reported it and it was on the police blotter. the kid that pawned got arrested... most S/N on the small stuff is on a decal that is easily removed...
