Tent trailers, or campers, are towable RV trailers that open up to sleep up to eight individuals. Their portability lends to instances of theft, from both neighborhoods and campsites. Protect your investment by taking safety precautions to deter burglars. Thieves determine if a tent trailer is worth stealing by assessing how easy and/or how long it would take. Anything you can do to make the theft process more difficult and time consuming adds to the security of your property.

Try some of these methods for added security:

  • When parked at your home, turn the camper around so the hitch is facing the wall. 
  • Park your camper nose down and jack up the rear. A camper must be level to be hitched. 
  • Run a chain through the chassis and the wheel and padlock it. This will prevent the wheels from turning. 
  • Lock your camper to a pole or stationary object using chain and padlock. 
  • Use a hitch lock and/or wheel lock. 
  • Remove the wheels from the camper and store it on axle stands. Keep the wheels inside your home. 
  • Purchase an alarm system for your camper. 
  • Older campers may require updated locks. 
  • Always lock your camper when not in use. Camp near others—safety in numbers. 
  • Mark your camper with an identifiable number or drawing so stolen units can be recovered by the police more easily. 
  • Install a GPS system so stolen campers can be tracked and recovered

Tent trailers act as your secondary home-away-from-home and should be protected in a similar fashion. Call Integrity Network Insurance Group at (512) 989-6006 for more information on Round Rock RV insurance.
