Trailer Hitch Lock recommendations?

Trailer Hitch Lock recommendations? Once our 21NE arrives in Sept. we hope to keep it for a really long time and would hate to loose it to some not so nice folks who want one for themselves but don't want to pay for it . So, we need to lock it down. What do you guys suggest?

This is probably the best hitch lock money can buy. Mate it with a hardened stainless puck lock and that’s one tough package. We stayed with the standard lock for now. https://www.provenlocks.com/products/model-2178-a
Be prepared for a bunch of people to jump in about how this can be defeated. I challenge them to defeat it quietly which rules out your battery powered grinders.

I second the Proven lock, very well made, keep in mind it's about 15 pounds

Good insurance policy also........FWIW I have not heard of anyone losing their Escape to theft in the past 10 years.

I use a Fort Knox lock. Very sturdy lock.

That's another strong lock. A whole page with videos of locks defeated and you'll notice that Proven Industries locks are not on there and they also tried hard and cannot defeat their own.
