Got a pair of these from my days of owning more motorcycles...



Use 'em together, threaded trough the spokes of both wheels on one side of the trailer. Hopefully the hardened chain would slow down the crook.

If they REALLY want it, they're going to get it, but as someone stated earlier, they'll pick the low hanging fruit. Like the old joke, "I don't have to outrun the bear, I just have to outrun you!" All you need to do is make yours a pain in the butt, so the other guy's looks easier...

My trailer's appearance still says, "I've been abandoned" so I've got that going for me... Who wants to steal an abandoned trailer with Airstream Pattern Baldness?

-Red, lockless in all the wrong places...

A Double Step

Received and installed a double step on my 2001 25' Safari. So much easier to board!

I used the 24" Stromberg Carlson aka Lippert step i got from Amazon. I had to drill two holes in the step frame to line up with the mounting rail on the trailer since the step was deeper than the original and drill two holes in the mounting rail since the new step was wider. With that, still only 30 minutes of actual work.

Hi, you'll love the double step on your Safari; My 2005 model came with them, I think it was the first year for them on Safari's.

Camping World sells a pair of short screw jacks to go between the lowest step and the ground to reduce stress on the step assembly from excited kids or more ample adults going in and out.

Get a lot of tubes of rubber cement and build up a tire on the wheel?

At least the "tire" would not go flat from loss of air.

A "Guaranteed No Blow-Out" tire? Switz has come up with the LTXSS!
