As long as they fit, not sure how much better one is over the other. A couple of years ago, we forgot our key to the lock on a pop-up. As you may know, on a PU camper you have to detach the TV to move the front slide out. Fortunately, we borrowed a bolt cutter from the park ranger... it snapped that lock into like a toothpick!

I have an armored Master lock that has thick square claddinig over the ends to prevent use of a bolt cutter. Its a tank of a lock, but it doesn't matter what you use, if they want it they will find a way to get it.

True. But I rather make it a little harder for them to steal it in the first place. My TT is stored at a public storage place and I do use a coupler lock that I got from WalMart. I keep the spare key in the trailer.

My best suggestion is a simple one, if I can't use it for more then one thing I don't buy it. My ottomans are used for extra seating, footstools and storage, my "broom" sweeping and mopping the vinyl floors.
But I also doubled on on some things..Can opener - hand and electric, coffee-pot perk and electric.
I was very surprised but my new square dishes seem to work better in the cupboard then any round ones that I have ever had. One of my must haves is a roll of the nonslip material to put into the cupboards and silverware drawers.
Enjoy finding out what YOU need for YOUR camping enjoyment.

Yeah, we bought a full set of square plates and bowls for the camper at Home Goods and a bunch of plastic tumblers at the Dollar Tree today. Spent a total of $20 and got a good set of dishes for the TT. Next trip to Sam's we will get the jumbo roll of nonskid shelf lining, lol.

I bought a full set of locks for the trailer to prevent someone from trying to take it with them. As others have said "if they really want it they'll will find a way". Here are pictures of the set I bought, so far so good...
