Hi, There! My trailer is in my driveway secure with the hitch lock I bought several years ago. It gives me peace of mind, although it maybe looks a little silly (mine is rather clunky looking and the paint is faded from the sun). My trailer is a work in process, which is itself probably the best deterrent (complete with Clecos running the perimeter down by the belly pan). Still I would buy the hitch lock again, it has been money well spent. My Airstream is an investment not just of money but of my time / blood, sweat, tears) and future plans... You canít really put a price tag on that.
You definitely have the right idea to get a lock. I know of people (fiberglass camper owners) who went with the Proven Industries lock and are very happy. It seems incredibly secure and has a nice clean look/ isnít overly bulky.
I canít say what other measures you should take. Iíve read that wheel locks are a good idea, also theyíre small and relatively inexpensive. A larger boot-style wheel lock is probably overkill for traveling but if your trailer will be sitting out in the open for long periods you might consider it.
Congrats on your trailer and happy travels!
