I'm not all that worried about when we are inside. Dog within 6 feet of door no matter where she sleeps in a 13 ft. But generally right on our feet. Dog goes off it wakes me up, I do not wake up cheerful. Just ask the DW she will tell you, me grumpy is not a good place for a would be thief to start our conversation from.

In storage that hinge pin bolt is always a weak point. People break into storage lockers using a battery powered 4 inch metal cut off saw to slice through hardened lock hasps. Even if the bolt was not easy to undo it would cut in a second. Trick is to not have anything that makes it look like it is worth breaking into.

The storage place my sister keeps her camper at some thieves just used battery powered drivers to unscrew/unbolt the vents or windows. Took people awhile to even find out the campers were being broken into. Rain damage clued them in that some of the break ins were awhile back since it had not rained in awhile.

we key-lock the door at the outside when we retire for the evening, and it locks. The door is able to be opened from the inside, even though it is locked. HOWEVER, it does not unlock when it is opened from the inside, so make sure you carry you key with you if you leave the trailer!
