Step 1 - Change out the 751 key lock.

Step 2 - In my opinion you have to decide on something that doesn't make it easy while minimizing damage. If someone really wants in and have the time & tools they will find a way.

Great choice for "Living within my means" and camping for one...

It might be easier to park your MH in a location that's less likely to have nefarious people around. Not always possible, I know, but campgrounds tend to be places with little theft going on. As others have said, it's very easy to pop the latches on outside storage compartments.

If you have anything really valuable, look into having a safe installed inside your MH.
