When I used to have a pop up, it had a lock on mine, just for peace of mind

I towed popup for about 20 years and never locked anything. Never had any issues at all. Of course that was about 20 years ago and I never locked a door at my house then either. Times have changed!

Owned a pop-up for 10 years and never locked that latch. I honestly didn't have anything valuable enough in there to worry about anyway...Plus if they really wanted to get in, it only took removing a few screws....

I use a spring clip in three of the hasp locks and small lock in the forth one.

I just didn't want one pop loose on me accidentally when in travel mode. Especially back off the trails...
