Stolen 4x4 Campervan Denver, CO


Well it happened at 12:35 on a sunny Sunday afternoon 30min before arriving home from my daughter's swim meet. If you're in Denver or CO, Please keep an eye out for my stolen campervan. Thank you


I'm not sure if this pic will work. Gray 4x4 Econoline with black Sportsmobile pop top. CO license XQP119

Are they sending these vans off to Mexico or whats going on? Why so many ford vans being stolen? Its not like the parts are bringing a premium or that they are unique. The junk yards are still full of them so the parts are easy enough to locate.

I hope not. I drove down and up Baja earlier this summer. Loved it down there!

I think they're looking for treasure inside. That would be a Webasto, lithium battery and a bunch of 8020 in my case. Still, I hear you!

I'm not out on the streets as much as I used to, but I will keep an eye out down in Colorado Springs. I hope a better full sized photo becomes available here.

Every time I hear of a stolen van I check all of my security measures for functionality on all the vehicles. At one place I used to work it was called "target hardening". I recommend everyone do the same regularly.

Sorry this is happening to you.

Damn, I guess it was only a matter of time for the van theft epidemic to spread from the West coast.

Sorry to hear, this sucks. Good luck getting your rig back, any security measures? Alarm at least? Ring doorbell? Neighbors cams?

Got it on the door cam. Unfortunately can’t see their plates. No volume so did the alarm go off? Not sure.

Well if it’s arrived, there are tons of camper vans in my neighborhood alone. They are everywhere in Denver. I warned the Sportsmobile owner down the street.
