I don't understand the difference. If they are likely going to bypass the lock anyway, what does it matter if it's a 751, a $30 lock or a $300 lock?
I've seen videos of guys in the middle of broad daylight in downtown Chicago that pull out a set of bolt cutters, snip the security chain on a bicycle that's locked up at a pole and ride away in less than 10 seconds. I can't imagine popping open a compartment door with a pry bar would take any longer.
They are probably less likely to try it in the middle of a CG, but at night parked in a driveway, or in a storage lot they certainly could.
On the similar subject, many dealers and campground owners have master keys to open the main entry doors on a lot of trailers as well.
