This, crooks must have just recently figured this out.

I highly doubt it, $200 / ton, and most car haulers weight about that, they could sell it quick for $600, and with most trailers not having any ID tags, why not take 3x the money?

again I doubt it, most thieves going after something to get $200/ton aren't motivated enough to do that much work, put out the ramps, pull the vehicle onto the trailer somehow, strap it down, load the ramps back up, find a scrap yard that will take it with no title... all for $300-$400, when the trailer will sell for 2x that.

Most thieves are too lazy for that much work for that little money. That's why they don't have real jobs.

Unless they are stealing cars to part out, like the guy did down the street from me a couple years back.
