Hi, same here; I keep Lincoln keys in my trailer, and trailer keys in my Lincoln. Lincoln has keyless entry pad on driver's door. Also have many spare keys elsewhere.

Same here. Standard operating procedure: Set up camp, keys always in pocket. After set up, Keys from truck go in trailer and trailer keys in truck with keyless entry. Worked really well when camping at Disneyland when different ages would head back to camp on different schedules.

I wish they'd put keyless entry on the Airstream!

Nowadays, I do not have a hidden key on the trailer. When I was solo I kept a magnetic box with a storage hatch key hidden under a propane tank. I kept a door key hidden inside of that locked storage area.

After driving 180 miles without any trailer keys, I now keep a trailer door key on my set of vehicle & house keys that is in my pocket 100% of the time (when I have my pants on). I also put a trailer door key on my wife's set of keys that she keeps in her purse. Between the two of us, we always have had a key so far (knock on wood). I keep a full set of trailer keys inside the tow vehicle.

When we have guests I have some extra single door keys, (kept in the tow vehicle) on a ring with a large colorful tag, that they can use to come and go. We use one of these if we go to the pool or to the beach.

The dog either carries it clipped to her collar, or I stick it between the ol' knockers (along with the cell phone).

Both work well.

I have taken a number of approaches over the years.

While parked long-term, I used to put a spare key on a length of black thread and then push it back into one of the frame rails a few inches. Pull on the thread to retrieve it.

When security isn't a major concern, I sometimes leave a set of spares in a certain location in one of the baggage compartments.

Lately I have been using a pushbutton key safe especially when there are several people who need to have access to the trailer.

I always hide a spare set with my wife and hope that she does not get mad at me.

I too thought the best plan was to store my spare keys in my tow vehicle. I kept my main set and spares in my truck. Then my truck was stolen.

The truck was gutted and they took ALL the trailer keys. I had to hire a locksmith to pick the door locks and replace the cylinders. All hitch padlocks were cut off and new locks purchased.

New plan. We bought a lock box like that a realtor uses on a house. The box has a combination and is permanently secured to the trailer in an obscure and out of the way place.

One set in tow vehicle another in front storage compartment, key for front compartment in furnace compartment, screw driver for furnace compartment in bumper compartment. With that said most of the time it's not locked.
