Is it paranoid to lock it all up? Maybe. Do I want to try and find another one for the price and spend 9 months redoing it again? Hell no.
There are states that do not require you to have auto insurance of any kind (Wisconsin for one until recently) so liability coverage is not a given .If you wish to secure your trailer , do so in any fashion you desire ,it is your prerogative My cost for full coverage insurance on my trailer is less than $100 /Yr . I do not wish to wrap chains around my axle
or cable my tires
together or install a burglar alarm to avoid the remote possibility of theft . You have your rational for your behavior as I do mind . Based on statistic having an accident while towing has a much much higher probability than trailer theft . I use the same rational with lottery tickets
