Our first trip in our recently aquired 2001 Four Winds RV made my wife and I stop and think twice. We came to a rest stop and noticed another RVer seemed to have engine trouble. Parking fairly close to them, as soon as I stopped the man walked up to my window and asked if I might be able to give him a hand. I said sure and noticed his wife and two sons and one daugher all later teens or early twenties. My wife went to the restroom while I went around to the front of his coach to look at his engine. After only a short while he got in and miracuously the engine started, everyone already in the coach and they drove off saying thank you. My wife came back from the restroom and we went back to our RV only to realize it had been ransacked. Missing was her purse, cash and credit cards, camera equipment, laptop computer, our gun, and some cash we had in the cab of the RV. We called the Sheriff's department but they were unable to locate the RV or the people. They said that while the wife was in the restroom, where his wife followed and kept her talking for a little while, and I was busy "helping" the man, his kids were cleaning out our RV. Is this something that happens often to RVers? This was our first trip and less than a hundred miles from our home.
