The safe that Jayco included on their Eagle upgrade that I have is nothing more than a hidden box screwed to the floor with a lock on it.

To be honest, we have never used it.

I have been camping for over 40 years and never found it necessary to have a safe. I do lock the camper while we're at the beach but it's just a habit. Like somebody mentioned I hide my wallet somewhere nobody will find w/o spending hours inside the camper looking.

I never have a single firearm when I'm camping. I always have SEVERAL of them. They are always locked in a case in the SUV, and the SUV is always locked.

We always take a boat with us. The boat is always uncovered tied to a dock, with fishing poles, depth finder, PFD's, etc, etc in clear view. I DO take the ignition key with me when we aren't right there.

I have never had a problem in 45 years of camping. If i were afraid, I guess i would go somewhere else.

Firearms, though, are a different story. You must take all precautions possible to ensure their security. Secure them in your tow vehicle and install a quality aftermarket security system.

If I feel the need to carry, then I feel the need to have access to it especially when I'm sleeping with my family. When you need a weapon, you need it immediately, not, in a few minutes after I get my pants on and go to my vehicle and unlock the box to get it..... it's why we slept with our weapons in combat zones...literally. If I am comfortable leaving it 20 - 30 feet from me, than I don't need it at all and I would just leave it home.. JMHO.

I have no need for a safe now. I don't have any money left after buying the trailer and doing the mods.
