Security

Reading about rjreed's experience in Atlanta is making me sick.
Porky's paranoia is not very reassuring either! I plan on keeping my Bambi in my driveway. Had thought a hitch lock and a coupler lock would be sufficient. Better ideas, please???

I suppose any motivated thief is gonna want he's after...

LoJack! (stealth GPS tracking system)

You silently know where the thieves are going. You may follow them and then use your best weapon!

No! Not the BFR! Just plain ol'good american justice!

Take out maybe, but I wouldn't take someone's life over it!

Peace man!

I'd just spray them with the black water tank that should keep them away for a while

A friend of mine in San Diego had a LoJack on his '99 Ford Diesel F-250.

Works great ... Now the police can tell him that his truck is in Mexico.

Angry Claymores

As a former physical security professional (& a lot of other things too)

I suggest a big dog - the meaner the better and a perimeter of claymore's. Usually works. Be sure to point them away from your trailer, range is limited to 300 ft - or so.
You can take out a whole neighborhood if you're not really careful.

Evidence of forced entry is necessary to keep you out of the pokey - so create it before the law arrives.

Punjii pits are also an option.

When all else fails - a little caution and situational awareness works for most people.

I put two different style of locking lug nuts on all four wheels a while back so I would keep my rims. Now I run a big vinyl covered chain through he holes in the rims with a bigger lock. They can't get the rims off the AS and now even drive away with it. An inexpensive anti theft tool.

Unhappy The sad truth

The sad truth is that there is very little you can do to stop a determined thief - other than some audible alarm system to attract attention to an event in progress & one that has never generated a false alarm.

This will not deter a determined grab & run thief.

If the target of the thief is in a remote, unattended location, odds are against the owner.

I'm lucky enough to have a RV port in my backyard, a big dog that does not like strangers, a .45 Cal Colt Auto and low tolerance for crooks.

Unfortunately the chain hasn't been made that cann't be cut with big enough bolt cutters. It is truly amazing what the four foot long ones can cut. How about putting the trailer on blocks and taking the wheels for long term storage. Better for the axels and tires. You could get the tires checked, balanced and ready to go for spring. Which here in New England should be around June sometime....
