Upgrade Your Locks

One of the easiest things you can do to upgrade your RV’s security is to upgrade the locks. Almost all RVs have the same generic lock installed on the exterior doors, which means that anyone with the same model lock as your RV can open the door, but don’t worry!  Beefing up your locks is easy!  Just purchase one of the many RV lock upgrades on the market, and install it yourself with a screwdriver.

Buy a Hitch Guard

Getting a hitch guard for your RV is a great way to deter potential thieves who are looking to snatch your whole rig.  Hitch locks are generally easy to install and are recommended for any towable RVs.


Get a Safe

Another great way to ensure your valuables are kept secure is by purchasing a safe.  Some RV models come with a safe already installed, but if you need a convenient place to put one, the under bed storage area is a discrete hiding place.

Motion Detector Lights

Installing exterior lights with a motion detector system is another great way to improve your RV’s security.  Potential thieves will be deterred by the risk of being seen, which will make your RV an unappealing target.  Additionally, you won’t ever have to fumble for your keys in the dark again, thanks to the automatic lights.


Security System

If you’re still concerned about the safety of your RV, then there are many options for security systems. Some RVers installed systems with easy-to-use sensors on all the windows and doors that will sound an alarm if one is opened.  Other campers will boot their RV to ensure the wheels cannot turn to prevent someone from driving off with the entire rig.
