Passive deterrents cost next to nothing and worth the effort (to me). This is a decal on the body next to the door window on a trailer parked next to mine in the storage yard.

Kind of my thought Donna, most of our trailers are NOT like the big stickies that have big TVs and electronic gizmos, really there is not much for a snatch and grab thief to take. I am more concerned about the entire trailer being stolen

That might work in the USA but not in Canada. No one would believe you

The sticker Ron posted wouldn't work for me either. Ten Forward isn't stored at home.

you cannot deter a thief....

but you might just get him to break into the trailer next door....that's the best you can hope for I think...

when I used to trailer a sailboat for cruising...I used to park the truck and trailer in some remote locations for days or a week at a time... I made up an 8x11" sign that read "NOTHING of value has been left in this truck" (stored under the seat) and placed it on the dash when I parked....I left the center console flipped open as well as the glove box (light bulb removed)

I never got broken into

I lost the keys out of my pocket, borrowed a couple of wrenches and took the door off. Viola' I had my spare set of keys.

There is nothing in my Scamp that I couldn't live without. I'd rather they steal the stuff than the Scamp.
