I lock the bay doors so they don't flap down the road. At the CG I leave them unlocked.

Anyone stealing all our stuff in the bays would get a couple hundred dollars worth. Anyone breaking open only one bay door would do several thousand dollars in damage; repairs might involve creating a new fiberglass bay door.

Locks keep honest people honest The crooks will get in no matter what lock you put on it. My brother and I met at a public beach a couple of years ago. When we left the vehicles, he asked if I was going to lock my doors. I told him that I don't have anything in the truck that anyone would want. He locked his. When we came back a couple of hours later, his window was broken and they took a bunch of stuff from his glove box. My truck was untouched.
