    White collar crime kills way more people than street crime does.

    People have been stealing converters ever since they first came out. Nothing new here.

    There's issues with other types of trailers too due to lack of building materials to make them.

    Problem is I don't know if you can even find them for rent right now.

    I could be wrong but I think most of the people having trouble are folks not yet established with the rental companies. I hadn't tried to rent a van recently but have rented plenty of reefers without a problem. Fortunately there are about 5 different companies around here that rent so that helps. Could always get on a waiting list as they come in.
