BoltLock: hitch reciever lock uses vehicle key
Uses the ignition key. They also have padlocks, cable locks and spare tire locks. One key.

BOLT Locks by Strattec — One-Key Lock Technology - Learns YOUR key the first time you use them

Too bad Airstream hasn't figured the concept out.

Indeed. I've noted elsewhere that it's possible to adapt the battery compartment locks to the water door and save one key but that still leaves far too many.

I have not had good results with other brands of locking receiver pins. The locks fail quickly due to road spray. I currently use a non-locking pin. If I were concerned about tampering or nuisance theft I'd use a grade 8 bolt with a locknut, a combination that is difficult and time consuming to remove without a ratchet.
