Never get locked out again

Here is my solution for anyone that wants to enjoy the great outdoors without having to worry about carrying and losing keys.

I have several sets stashed around in less obvious spots between my trailer and Jeep.

Nice idea and looks good. Where did you get the lock box, and how is it attached to the frame?

Similar key box, but installed in a concealed location. They are not that solid, and a whack from a hammer can break it open, IMHO

Easy to find and get that key if they want it.

We carry spare keys for the two trailer locks hidden on the truck, and a spare key for the truck in the trailer.

Great idea to have spare keys, but the last couple of posts reflect what I thought when I saw the picture. I have a spare set of keys that I think (hope) are well hidden! I would have tried to do something similar with a lock box - i.e. hidden it!

I'm thinking of installing something similar just above my black tank valve where A: nobody would look B: nobody would want to look and C: nobody would want to touch.

i keep an extra trailer key on a chain around my neck. If I lock the keyring with all the keys in the trailer, I have that. I have a key to the truck in a drawer in the trailer, so if I lock the keys in the truck I can use my trailer key to get the other truck key out of the trailer.

Go to amazon and search for Kidde KeySafe.

I use to think that way. If they want it, they'll get it. I made my decision based solely to serve my needs. That's why we have insurance right?

I have some bad habits from a long career in security-related stuff.

I like to make it as difficult as possible for somebody to get my stuff, data or otherwise.

My key safe is mounted where it's easy to get to, but no way to easily hit it with a hammer.

I've always claimed to be a "paid paranoid". Insurance, IMHO, is just a way for a company to take your money and return as little as possible in case of a claim. A necessary evil most of the time, sadly.

I use a similar approach but I also have a spare truck key in a magnetic key box hidden on the truck. However, this truck key was cut from a plain blank so the truck can't be started if the key is found.

One RVer of my acquaintance (he has an SOB, not an Airstream) hides a spare key inside his rooftop A/C shroud. His SOB has a permanently-attached ladder so he doesn't have to borrow one to get up there. But the same idea works for an Airstream if you have a telescoping ladder stored in your tow vehicle.

I always thought that was a great idea. Miscreants looking for your spare keys usually look under; they hardly ever look up. And they sure don't carry ladders to a break-in.
