Small Safe

Hey,

Has anyone installed a small safe in their trailer? If so what type biometric, dial, key ? To add to that anyone who has one have you gone across the border with it? Did they give you a hard time? It is a passing thought to have some place to put documents, money etc.

Cypher

As is said on Facebook "following." I have a safe in my Scamp. Not for $$ so much as "stuff" I don't feel comfortable leaving in camp while I'm gone. And, it's hidden...

I've already scoped out Ten Forward to see where I want a safe to go, maybe...

Following...

How heavy is it? I would think people would just walk off with a safe but, of course, they have to find it first. And.... If you have a motion detector by the door....

No, but it sounds like a perfect opportunity to restart the trailer theft thread, only this time they get the safe too.

When I go camping, the trailer is the only thing of real value. My Fender guitar I have had for over 30 years has good emotional value, but everything else is just stuff.

I install lots of safes in peoples homes, and I sure would not want the weight of even the smallest of these in my trailer. I am curious to see what people would use in a trailer.

I assume that we're talking about a small box, the size of a car's glove compartment - a few kilograms at the most. If it is fastened to the trailer with screws or bolts which are only accessible through the interior of the box, no one will easily walk away with it.

I have not put one in, but we have considered it.

That would make more sense than a safe. I was picturing something weighing at least 30 pounds.
