I understand your question was not anything about riding out a storm in your camper so To try to answer your question, we live in south Louisiana and have gotten hit pretty bad with hurricanes. We leave ours in the drive way if we deem it safe to ride out the storm in our house if we decide that we need to leave we pull the camper with us and head north and stay in the Rv. As for the tie downs I have never seen any specifically for rvs but have seen Cajun ingenuity at its best. Some have taken mobile home anchors, screwed them into ground around Rv and tied into the frame where possible. Hope this helps

I had just tied down one corner of our RV on the Oregon coast while having a rough storm. I was inside when the wind lifted us up and hung us like a kite. It only missed our house by couple of feet with water and cans coming down thru the trailer. Thank goodness for that tie down. The tie down was a "T" slot 2ft. Deep with a gable tied to the young of the trailer.

What part did you tie it to on the trailer?

Have seen trailer house anchors to the frame of a camper in a park on the banks of the Ohio River. The wind would push a camper pretty good.
