    Not many thrives approach my camp sites? My sign says I have 11 grizzly traps from the 1930s with release tool. They are new that were never used, and work. I wrote on the sign that I leave a meat cleaver to hack their own legs off, one trap hangs oh the trailer, I of course would never do it.
    My security system includes motion sensors, cameras, sirens, sound recording, trail cameras, phone alerts, iron bars through wheels, coupling lock box, tongue jack removed, two steel swing/ folding cargo trailer bar locks ,
    At night ,bear spray, hornet spray, Desert eagle stainless 50 cal. My antique Parker 10 gauge double barrel. I custom built my trailer, and my Prevost Liberty,

    That’s a special level of secure. I’ll give you that.

    I have a seasonal site, so my camper is alone often

    I have security cameras that alert me if they get movement (birds, rabbits, squirrels, and the occasional deer set it off) plus the usual coupler locks. There are frequent patrols so I can call if I’m concerned by anything

    camera and internet are powered by the camper battery (inside) so nobody touches anything without me seeing it and a power failure doesn’t leave me vulnerable

    Maybe I'm lucky..... maybe I end up in better campgrounds. In all my years of camping, going back to my teenage years, I've never had anything stolen (while camping).

    if you really have to do all that to stay safe and keep your gear - then tell us where you camp and we will be sure not to go there - honestly, in all our camping years in tents, popups and now the hybrid camper (>20 years), - we lost only 1 cooler to kids looking to take the bottle of wine. The only thing i lock up is bikes and the camper door.
