After all that work it would have been easier to just go and buy one.
Looks like the handbrake must be inoperative also

Interesting looking ute that and something that doesnt look like it belongs in Auckland City but something rural? Did you contact the NZTA and ask if the ute went through any tunnels exiting Auckland? It seems like they came well equipped too so playing back footage a month prior to see if anyone scoped it out might help

That hitch lock gave them a good amount of grief - good endorsement for whatever it was. 
crapbags though, what do they expect they can do with it?

Darn, thought I'd already commented.

Looks like a cul-de-sac, so a good chance the thieves had been visiting or been tipped off by someone there - have you tried showing a picture of the ute to the people living/working there - with careful observation of their response?
The other thing is there is a good chance it will turn up on Trade-me, or similar, so keep an eye out on those.

I hate thieves, best thing for them is 6 feet of dirt!
These are my thoughts and opinions - sometimes I'm wrong, but not often ;-)

Are there plates on that ute, or did you blur them?

Any idea why scumbags would want a trailer like that? To pinch flash cars, perhaps?

Just a thought,
my guess is, they didn't travel far with no plates, so maybe look for cameras down the road or in a side street not far from where it was stolen to see where they put the plates back on.   ;)
Beating up parking wardens ain't a crime.

Only just spotted this.

Gutted for ya mate, mine was pinched in 2018, like you I had it locked with two measures of security and it was behind my workshop out of site.

Also like you the video was useless, Police were not interested and told me they are mostly stollen by weed growers, they load them up with stolen quad bikes and head deep into the bush.

Mine has never re surfaced.

Safe to say I just hire one now when I need it.

Have you thought about getting asset trackers

There are some great long life ones that can be concealed pretty well will ping couple times a day last 3-4 years on one set of lithium AAs
