    Sorry to here that.

    Where was the trailer parked?
    How did they break in?

    You might back the trailer up to something so that the ramp can't be drop down, and put a lock on the inside of the side entrance door.So that you must drop the rear ramp first then unlock the side. Also,you can go to Radio Shack,Wal-Mart or Lowe's and invest in a surveillance camera they have some cheap and small ones that do a great job that's what I did, along with parking my trailer next to my dogs. If not then invest in a Rottweiler.

    Good Luck.

    when i used to run enclosed trailers we would back them up to the building so you can get the gates down. then on the inside of the trailer put a padlock on the side door so even if they break the outside lock they still aint getting in unless they pull the truck up...

    As thin as those walls are on those trailers, if no one is around, then a battery operated sawz-all will cut through it like butter. at least enough to get to the lock or cut the door off. If someone wants your stuff bad enough, they are gonna get it.

    as they always say...locks keep honest people honest

    to top it all off they broke the side door it was welded shut and everything was locked up even in the inside from the cases i heard all of the locks were never to be found meaning they were picked or someone has keys alot of guys had no damage just missing locks so look out there is an investogater on this case
