Thank you ahead of time for anybody who gets what I'm tryng to do.
LOL it looks to me that all those who have responded do get what your trying to do.
As has been correctly pointed out you can put all the additional locks you want on the door but as long as the hinges are on the outside the door can very easily be taken off. The only way to totally secure the door is to either replace the lock and make the door hinge bolts none removable and hope you never need to fix them ( warning they are a common item that needs fixing) or put big bars one near the top and one near the bottom across the door -with all the bolts holding the bar mechanism on the inside. Not pretty. Even if you do that there is no guarantee someone cant get one of your windows
open pretty easy if they really want to due to the simple locks on them.
Another option which was also suggested is to add an alarm system to the trailer but if you do be warned if you plan on doing any dry camping
it will suck the life out of your battery
. Also if you camp in remote areas where no one else is around when your away and the alarm goes off its not going to stop someone from entering the trailer.
Keep in mind that most who have responded to our question get it - most of us also have stuff thats important to us as well but putting the real important stuff into the truck of a car that has an alarm system has proven through the many years of collective camping experience to be the most aesthetically, cost effective and practical option.
