It has already been a moderate time after the event.
All abandoned vehicles will have already been striped and drained of anything useful.
Any vehicle that has supplies in it, and, or have gas in it will mean that it is a car that is in use, or has people watching over it.
If you drive up and stop beside a vehicle like that……… there is three possibilities.

I did not see that show but I have seen ones just as bad. I am like what fool came up with this idea. The one I seen had a bit about going though houses looking for stuff. Same deal as your car.
1=It has already been stripped
2=Some one is at home

If you don't want it me and my team will be by to get it.
We will find a spot to watch the house or more likely a group of homes around daylight.
we will take turns while most of the team sleeps.
people living in the homes we will see and we will move on and traps will be found as someone setting the trap will move or be seen make noise.
If we see no movement smoke or other signs and at night fall we will move in and as a couple of the team watches the area around the home/s the rest will do clearing/salvage and we will rotate watch duties and salvage
I have seen professional like cops search home and miss guns and other valuables.
Most untrained looters will miss a lot of good stuff.
They will also leave behind many good items just because they have no use for them.
I will take anything useful and take it back to base camp or hide it near where i got it and come back later for it as needed.
NO home is completely stripped unless all that is left is the concrete slab or less, building material is useful, The insulation can be used to winterize shelters at your base camp or hideaway. wood, windows, piping, wiring, doors. look in attics look under wood floor homes, fencing, anything could be useful if you just think.
Once everything is gone burn the house if its near your base camp area.
Looter or gangs will not hang around if there is no shelter or anything left to loot.
