You’re at the campsite, did you lock the door before you went on your hike? Are you sure?
I don’t want to worry you, and truth be told, most folks really are trustworthy when you come down to it, but it doesn’t hurt to think about security every now and then. You keep some valuable stuff in there, stuff you might not have even considered the value of some of it, you to an opportunistic thief it may represent some value.
So how can you protect your investment? Most people don’t use their travel trailer most of the time, so keep the garage or gated area locked with a secure lock. It couldn’t hurt to mention it when you get it insured as well. Maybe you’ll get a reduction.
Campsites are usually friendly places and there really shouldn’t be much to worry about but prevention is better than regret. So lock it at night and when you’re away from it. Take your valuables with you, never leave money or expensive jewellry inside unless you invest in a small safe. And there are ways to secure electronic items as well. There are chains you can use to tether laptops or tvs to something secure within the vehicle. When you were looking for travel trailers for sale, you should have though about security too.
And of course those friendly fellow travellers can have a use to. Ask a neighbour to keep an eye on your RV too. And do the same for them to build trust. In fact if you’ve parked it at home get neighbours there to keep an eye out or the local neighbourhood watch.
It’s all good sense, and you probably now the security risk of your RV better than anyone. It may not be particularly recreational, but it’s better to be safe than regret that you weren’t.
