Frizlefrak said:Potentially. He would be wise to just ring the doorbell and ask for the keys. Call the sheriff if it doesn't go smoothly.
I paid cash. We will never meet.
Foto-n-T said:RV/Trailer theft isn't one of those "spur of the moment" things like a joyriding teenager. Removing a wheel would certainly slow down the thief but in reality if it was your particular model that they were shopping for it would be extremely easy to put a wheel on it and go. If nothing else, I'd re-think where I was storing it if the problem really bothers you that much.

Does anyone use a hitch lock? Any recommendations? Any other ideas?
Jammer said:Trailer thefts from campgrounds are vanishingly rare, as are thefts of trailers stored in residential areas.
Most people who have trailers stolen were storing them at a business or industrial location, often inside a locked fence, for a period of several days or more. These are locations where there is no one physically present to witness a theft, call police, or intervene.
I would also be careful of parking an unoccupied trailer overnight at a hotel, truck stop, etc.
