and other baronial property storage

Dreiburgen owns a trailer that is used to store and haul the barony's possessions.

Property Storage Policy

These policies have been in place since 1987

  • It is the policy of the Barony of Dreiburgen to store the majority of the property on one place for reasons of inventory control.

Requirements for place of storage

  • Property needs to be fenced and gated.
  • Property needs to be reasonably accessible by autocrats, officers or any other members of the barony that need legitimate access to the baronial equipment.
  • It is preferable if the trailer and other storage facilities are out of site from the street.


In the years prior to 1987 a number of items went missing so a logbook system was implemented. See figures 1 and 6

  • Anyone who removes anything from the Baronial Keep (fig 2) or the Baronial trailer is obligated to fill out the log listing out what was removed, the date it was removed and who removed it.
  • When items are returned the person returning them needs to fill out the date returned line in the logbook.

Adapter Example

Figure 5 is an example of an adapter that converts the trailers two connecters to a standard 5-Pole Flat connecter. However this adapter would not work with every vehicle that has a 5-Pole Flat. This is because depending on the car or truck the fifth wire could be either Electric Brakes, Back Up Lights or Battery Power.
