Yes, they do. I figure most thieves look for the easiest opportunity. A bar or anything else laying on the ground can be picked up without barely breaking stride. Sly and possibly unnoticed even with people around. Walking up to an RV, unlocking the storage door, rummaging through it, while hoping no one is inside hearing you or that anyone sees you and knows you are out of place is a bit less inconspicuous. Doesn't mean it won't still happen but I'm just assuming I am reducing the odds by keeping things out of sight and less easy to grab and go.
