A friend of mine was moving their child to college and parked overnight at an upscale hotel near a major US city, in a well-lit area of the lot and outside their room. Both their Suburban and the U-Haul enclosed trailer were gone the next morning. They heard nothing. The trailer was eventually recovered - empty.
While driving down to Texas for the World Tour of Texas rally in 2019 I stopped at the motel across from the Corvette Museum. Had all the gas siphoned out of my 1964 Chrysler Newport's Tank overnight. Because old gas tanks were real easy to do that too. Only cost me 12+ hours on the side of the road trying to diagnose a sputter and die issue that had to be the fuel pump or the carb or the ignition and could in no way be that the full tank of gas I put in before parking for the night was empty since the gas gauge didn't work. Nope, let's just check the hose connecting the tank to the hard fuel line to be sure it doesn't have cracks in it pulling air and......empty thunk noise as I bump the tank getting under there.........mother %(&%*!
Never trust a hotel/motel parking lot.
