Fire is a biggie for me. At home, my monitored alarm system monitors heat as well. The speed a fire would spread in a trailer makes me worry more. At home - I feel like its more plausible that the kids could be rescued - esp that their doggie door is no longer open 24/7. I usually leave my trailer door unlocked whenever I venture out - just hoping they'd have a better chance of rescue if something dire happened. Course, this opens doors (literally) to other issues ...
I've noticed that when I'm preparing to leave my campsite to return home and turn off the a/c, the place heats up rather quickly!
