Wow- thanks for all the good ideas! I wonder if the DT Max Security is somewhat invulnerable to bolt-cutters? Or, if Mexray's idea would work with our cat? And if the Guardian G-37 accomodates the big, rolled flange of these '70's couplers? Kinda looks like it might. Will also check out the ones Utee94 posted pics of. PM me if anyone has a flat-flange coupler that my Gorilla would work on, it's $30 plus postage. Otherwise I'm returning it.

I am using the Master Lock Universal Trailer Coupler Lock Model 379DAT on my 2008 Safari SE. It was the only hitch lock the Dealer stocked that would fit over the big rolled flange on the Airstream couplers.

I also secure the coupler latch with a Commercial grade long shackle pad lock.

So are these pretty much the choices for a durable coupler lock?

Man I will say it again. I'm glad I live where i live. You could always jack it up and take the tires off. That would stop them from towing it away...

OK- decided to give the DT Max. Security a try- seem to be popular, widely available, and they fit the wide, rolled flange couplers. Thanks for all the advice!!

I have been thinking of a chain and padlock through the wheels but I also have a pair of the chocks that lock between the wheels and can be secured with a padlock. Does anyone use these and feel that they are secure ?????

You're using logic and good sense here! Try the chain/lock combo available at most Harley dealers. You can pull an AS with a hitch lock on to a roll back faster than I can type this response. Try that with the wheels chained. Too, the chain can be used to secure bikes, generators, etc. Sometimes, people over think these issues.

Ditto the chain & lock. Let some air out of the tires and you can kick the locked wheel chocks free...

Thanks Mojo. Hadn't thought about that one. I have some stainless chain so I 'll check to see if it's long enough. I have a shorter piece that I secure the generator in the back of my truck. I do trust people and have never ever had a problem in the camping area's we have chosen but WHY ask for trouble by making it to inviting.

See ya'll on the road sometime

I had those chocks before. Once I forgot to remove them and drove a few yards before I remember. They had twisted out and were laying on the ground where the trailer sat originally.

The lock for the chocks is more about the chocks not being stolen than the TT.

And, thanks for the link to the GUARDIAN, above.

When did you get yours? I just tried to get one and my check was returned in an envelope marked OUT OF BUSINESS 2/6/13
