Brian, like the others who've responded, we've been camping for many years all over the western parts of the united States and into British Columbia and Alberta in Canada. We've never had anything stolen and most of the time I feel just as safe, if not safer, in a campground than I do at home. Let common sense be your guide and you'll be OK. Fiberglass trailers hold their value well so remember even if it doesn't work out you'd probably be able to sell your trailer after giving camping in it a try for close to what you paid for it. As for mold and mildew, yes, the PNW can be a bit rough on things. We keep dehumidifying crystals in our trailer over the winter and store our cushions in the house. If you have a place to park it where you can access electricity, you can keep a small heater in it set on a very low setting to help keep the damp out.

Hey Brian, I'll add my two cents. I've camped for over 40 years. Started in tents moved to a pop-up and now a fiberglass trailer. I too try to store things out of sight ie. Behind the trailer , under the trailer. I have on several occasions left Colemen stoves, lanterns etc out in the open on picnic tables, I have never had one thing stolen. Good luck with your decision but I wouldn't be overly concerned about theft.

Welcome Brian. I concur with the "don't worry about it" philosophy. In checking the archives of my internal hard drive, brain, I can't remember ever having anything stolen from a campsite, except by real packrats in the desert. I've seen other campers do a lot of stupid things, but don't remember theft being one of them. If you've got the money, go for it! If it's questionable, as others have suggested, find a good used one. I'm very happy with my 1980 Burro 13', though in a year or two when I have a bigger truck, I'll move to a 16 or 17' before venturing on a year long USA/Canada trip. The resale value holds well on the FGRVs. Good luck and happy camping.
