Not thats its a huge loss, but while on the water today, some asshat stole my spare wheel.
It was bolted to the trailer, was a rusty old thing but served its purpose. Guess ill have to take to chaining it to the trailer now.

I've heard of that happening, as well as having running wheels taken. On the odd report, just the lug nuts.

Sorry to hear it's international.

The thieving barstewards, I always keep mine in the boot because I never got round to buying and fitting a clamp. I think that I will carry on keeping it in the boot from now on.

Could have been worse. I got back to crosshouse once and the trailer had been pinched.

RYA had all of these nicked at one event a while back. If you look they now have clamps on the spares!

Count yourself lucky. Often people remove the spare wheel in order to steel your trailer. They remove the wheel with the lock, fit the spare and away they go!

Thats something I have never thought about but yes it is so obvious now that you have mentioned it.

Its a wonder that the insurance companies have not cottoned on to this yet.
Its gotta be a lot better keeping your spare in your car boot then.

Which is why a lock that covers all the wheel nuts is a good idea.
