We were supposed to go camping for the long weekend but have since backed out as its more of a "party campground" with lots and lots of 18-40yr olds who will be roaming everywhere. We would like something that is a detourent to them if were not at our site and they attempt to enter our camper (where clothes, food and alcohol will be). .... . Short of having to A) lock everything in our SUV every time we want to walk around and visit other friends or B) literally PARK my SUV in front of the door.
For this reason, lack of being able to properly secure our camper, we have backed out of this long weekend but now I'm looking in general. Again, I understand that if they want something bad enough they'll rip the canvas or something but just for someone who might be looking to make a quick grab and dash.
I was thinking some sort of lock mounted closer to the bottom of the door frame ... something out of reach from arms if they pull back the canvas and reach around ..... I don't know .... very much at a loss.
(btw this happened already once where neighborhood kids were found sneaking around the camper and opened the door)
I'm probably not the right person to "chime" in on any type of security related issues. As my mind drifts to my past life. I like things that make loud noises and produce an abundance of light and that really doesn't go over well in a campground setting.
I would agree with you, if they want it, they will get it. I just work off the principal if they take it, they will remember when they tried to get it...hehehe.
In all sincerity, I hope you never have to worry about this happening.
Oh, where is that campground you backed out of? Sounds like I might like to visit that place.
