Me too.

Actually I was pretty lucky. Upon arriving back at camp I noticed that I left without securing all the windows which is so unlike me. The large emgerency exit was wide open and just needed the screen removed for easy access. Even with that side being visible to the ranger's booth the window awning could had block some of the view.

In any campground I am in I wave at practically everyone passing by. It serves as a greeting and as a security measure. People who belong will wave back. And I make notes as to who belongs with what and where.

"I see you, hi neighbor" or,
"I see you, I got a good look at your face, your car, your tag, your clothes."

We do this as part of the neighborhood watch at home, too.

Well with the windows open, the thief assumed someone must be in there sleeping. So they ignore that unit, that or your site was more visible to other campers.

Sometimes the scumbags are your fellow campers. On one trip we had laid our patio mat out in the site next door where it could dry in the sun while we were packing up. I got distracted for about 15 minutes when I looked back over and it was gone. Went walking through the campground, must have looked like I was on a mission because someone pointed to the campers that took it. I asked the guy if he picked up my mat and where was it, he said "well maybe but I'm not sure what I did with it." He opened the door to his camper and it was stuffed under his dining table. On another trip it was dark and my niece took her girls to the restroom and had to leave her Coleman lantern outside, when she came out it was gone. So it's not always the people who "don't belong".

Actually, it is always the people who "don't belong" be they campers or not.

I always feel paranoid locking up the bikes at night, but when I read stuff like this I realize it's a necessary practice - not paranoia.

Yes they have. We've removed consequences thus there's no concern for getting up to shenanigans.
