How secure is an RV? A couple minutes (if that) with a large screwdriver on any entry door or compartment should answer that question, barrel lock, CH751 'universal' lock, doesn't matter. Why I have insurance that covers trailer contents.

And fortunately, have never encountered denizens of society in a campground........yet.

Now that gave me a good idea. When I hit the lock button my headlights come on so from now on I'm going to face the car in rather than back in.

On mine the lights come on and the horn blows until shut off. This can also be a good alarm system at home especially if DW is there alone, keep the key fob by the bed and press the panic button if someone is messing around outside....

That is a great idea.

There are a couple of other devices I am adding to my trailer, including:

EE SGI Solar Powered 60 LED Flood Spot Exterior Light

...and this foot latch I plan to fasten through the door

how true, add all the locks , devices you want, just means you slow a bad guy down a few seconds at most. I am 73, been camping all my life, and have NEVER had any trouble, anything stolen, or met "bad guys" while camping. I think too many are paranoid.

That's like saying "I've never had a car wreck, people who use seatbelts are paranoid.".

I think my TT is sucure to a point because the average crook will not have keys to any camper. I don't have anything out side our trailer worth killing for. Just like in combat you got to think is gonna be me or him (I had to make that choice). With that said I would try to stop anybody from hurting or killing my family any way I could. For the average person like the JOF family killing or shooting someone is not going to easy to live with at home or jail especially for camping gear.

just build a hidden escape hatch and sneak up on them from behind ... or have a good paintball gun with frozen paintballs ... those suckers can disable someone quickly
