I've only lost a cooler full of adult beverages and that was during the day when I was gone... in an Oregon State Park.

I would feel more comfortable leaving valuables in my trailer, than I would in a locked tug. At the Oregon Gathering one year, late at night... several locked TUGS were broken into... valuables taken and it ruined the trip for a couple of Oregon Gathering participants. Keep your valuables with YOU at night. Don't become another "lessons learned."

Other than beer & stuff, the #1 Thief magnet seems to be Honda Inverter Generators. I was staying at a CA Beach State Park last fall and two were stolen on the same night. The rangers suspect that outside parties came into the park via the beach and made off with them. One wasn't secured in any manner, the other had a heavy cable but the perps just cut through the carry handle that the cable was attached to.

You can resell these on Craigslist in SoCal for $500, no questions asked, in one day.

When I was finishing up my tour with the USDA I was living alone in our pop-up in the state park. Very secure campground locked at night but there was the lake anyone could float across at night. I would rig the door with a tarp strap and the porno potty, as my kids liked to call it, fully loaded. Bucket full of pee would have been the first surprise.

My tug is a pickup with a shell, and I use a Truck Vault <>product in the bed for the fishing gear and long guns, when I have them along, and anything small and of high value. Truck Vault makes a lot of dandy security products. The dog in the trailer is the sentry at night.
