Around here the only thing I've heard of getting stolen was things in boats pulled up on the bank. They must have paddled in and cleaned a bunch of people out of fishing gear.


I'm a little too truthful, I guess.

We rarely lock anything up including the doors of the camper. Nothing has been stolen in 30-35 years of camping ........ Having said that I would lock bikes to keep kids from joy riding & teenagers have been known to steal coolers hoping for beer.

We do lock our door at night and when we leave. We keep our basement compartment locked but don't fool yourself as it us only keeping honest people honest. Almost every tt is equipped with ch751 locks on the pass through compartment. In the beginning we locked bikes up, now we don't. We don't leave anything of value lying around though. We figure everybody is equally vulnerable at a campground.

When I had my 14ft TT, I would bring a 4 person instant tent and use it as an outbuilding. No one ever messed with my stuff and it was nice to have it out of sight. I would just set it up behind the TT. The TT and the 8ft tent combined still had me under the length of most other rigs.

I upgraded to an 18ft this year, and used the bunks for storage for the two weekend trips we were able to squeeze in. But, for longer trips I will bring the tent as long as the campground allows two "dwellings". It is handy for keeping chairs and gear out of the weather and takes little time to set up. And, it gives my introverted self an extra room.
