Ray installed a small safe from Harbor Freight about six months ago. It is the same type as you sometimes have in hotel rooms. Less than $50 and it lets us secure our small electronics and other valuables. Not very hard to install and we like knowing that even if Piper didn't lick the intruder to death before they found it, it would slow the thieves down some.

We must be too trusting........as well....... Rarely even lock our doors, if they want it they can have it ....... Just my opinion to a thief a safe just means there must be something inside worth stealing so why not just take the whole thing........

We have a safe from Protech that holds what we need and has a 15 minute fire rating.

You can't make things idiot proof, you can only make them idiot resistant.

...And that is why we also use a Tri-Max Hitch Lock. We know people whose trailers have been stolen by those who have just pulled up and used a small ball or a spike to make a quick get-away. Ounce of prevention rather than a pound of regret, so to speak.

My sentiments exactly except we do lock the door when we leave.

We're not diligent about locking the trailer up if we're just going with the kids down to the playground, or up to the store or something. We're usually in close enough ear shot that the dogs will let us know if anybody's around.

But I absolutely make sure everything's on lock down if we ever leave the park.

To the OP, our home safe only contains the items I don't want to burn, like the kids birth certificates or our marriage certificate. Even accounting for going full time, I can't think of what you'd need a safe that big for.

But hey, at only 140lbs, it's not like it's necessarily bulky. If fits nicely under the love seat and as you said it's an out of sight, out of mind thing. Nice install.
