Lowes (and others) sell standalone battery-operated solutions like motion-sensors. Not expensive and they look like simple fixes that would work fine for a campground situation.

Keep this in mind
You install a security system in your RV that requires either shore power or your RV's battery power. A would be thief Cuts your battery cable and turns off the shore power. Takes about 30 seconds to disable the RV's powers supply. What good will the security system do at that point. So if you do install a system make sure it has its own power supply.
