One of the downfalls of tiny houses is that unfortunately they can sometimes be vulnerable to theft.
When I hear about something like this happening I think about how we can help prevent this from happening altogether because it’s so frustrating.
I wrote a post about that here a while back but I’m always looking for more ideas and preventative measures we can take. So if you have any of your own ideas and even design tips feel free to share links, etc. in the comments below (or in this post).
In this case this tiny cabin was stolen right from its foundation and towed away during the day. Fortunately, it was found a day later and recovered by deputies thanks to a local news story that aired locally. The cabin measures 10′ x 20′. Unfortunately, many of their personal items are now missing and parts of the cabin were damaged during the theft.
Stolen Tiny Cabin in Loon Lake, Washington Recovered
Yesterday you might have heard about a tiny house on wheels being stolen from someone’s property.
Fortunately, Casey found the house last night. And I’m so happy that he did. But now I just don’t want anything like this to ever happen to you. I’ve been thinking, “what can we all learn from this?” And, “what did Casey learn from this that we should know?”
So I decided to put some information together for you to help protect your current or future tiny house on wheels from being stolen. This is all especially important if you leave the premises for long periods of time.
If you have any other tiny house security tips that I missed and that would be helpful to the rest of the community about protecting a trailered tiny home from potential thieves (or even break ins) then please tell us about it in the comments below.
