Never had anything taken, been camping for 10+ years, sometimes we don't even lock the trailer.

I would also hope that thieves got an unmentionable spot!

Teenagers getting a bad rap again.

I guess if your worried about things getting stolen, try to secure them out of site.
Surge protection? Try the lock box for it or go hardwired.

I was more worried about idiots taking the copper from the 50 foot of power cable I have than my chairs.

We just got our first camper and worried about the same thing. We also understand that there are bad people every where and they would take advantage of certain "Opportunity". So we went cheap with everything that we would left outside, chairs, table...etc. and know that we may have to replace some items.

Had a 6 pack of Pepsi taken at the Marion County City Park in Knoxville, IA about 30 yrs ago while we were attending the Knoxville Nationals Sprintcar races. Later that day, here came 2 BIG dudes and 2 small boys and I'm thinking maybe my 2 boys hade been up to no good. Turns out the BIG dudes were the fathers of the 2 boys and made them appologize for taking the Pepsi and offer to wash our camper (72 Chevy El Camino popup)to pay for it, which we declined. Became good friends after that. Don't know how they found out the boys had taken the Pepsi tho.

I have a friend at work that had his trailer broken into from a roof vent and all they did was poop in his toilet. Kinda funny, but disgusting at the same time. When u gotta go u gotta go!

I have been camping on an off for over 50 + years, never had anything stolen or removed from the campsite. Camping people are just good people. We never leave any expensive items like I phones, etc. just laying out. Most of the stuff we have, eveyone else has the same stuff or maybe even better.

Knock On Wood.

Not so far.

In fact, once when we left camp to clear sunny skies and came back hours later to find all our stuff GONE. As we got closer I realized everything including the ground was damp or wet. Then I saw all our stuff carefully put away under the camper and some items wrapped in plastic.

The unexpected rainstorm would have blown our stuff all over and wet everything. My neighbor and his family, campers I had not met till then, put our stuff out of harm's way.

A few bottles of home made wine and heartfelt thanks found us some new camping friends.
