The dreadful theft of the Escape 19' of forum member SimonHayes' parents (under discussion here
), has got us wondering about the best ways to prevent trailer theft.
What practices, precautions, and products do experienced Escape owners use to decrease the risk of trailer theft and, while we're at it, theft from their trailers?
Presumably in campgrounds neighbours could look out for neighbours who are away in their tow vehicle exploring the area. Likewise, neighbours at home could do the same for owners who store their Escapes on their property.
Not to dwell on negative possibilities, but perhaps it would be worth asking campground staff at check-in time if there have been any problems and, if so, what precautions a camper could take to prevent another one.
Please recommend specific hitch locks, wheel locks, and other security devices, and any other precautions that campers might take.
Thanks for any thoughts on this.
