I'm just a weekend camper that stays close to home here in southwest MN. I've never had anything stolen and I don't bother to lock anything. But,,,, I don't have anything worth stealing. If they walk into my camper and take my 7 year old 24 inch TV then they must need it worse then me.

The campgrounds I frequent always have someone at them and a park host stats at the campground. So no one is going to make off with my batteries or propane tanks without being seen.

Never anything stolen from a campground in MI. But rest stops always seem to have a few strange people hanging around for one thing or another. Years back I had a couple guys creep up to our fiver and dually when we had it. The dog alerted me to them and I turned and looked. They were coming up from the side and slightly behind me while sitting in the drivers seat waiting for my wife to come back from the restroom.

The dog barked at them and they turned around and walked away after I saw them. So now I always have an eyes looking everywhere. But we can use the on board bathroom now so no reason to leave the rig.

Our storage yard has had RV's and Travel trailers broken into more than once. Had a fiver at the dealer and the lot got ransacked one night. Tried to get into ours but must have gotten scared off, just damaged the lock

The kids were not looking for food in your cooler. [emoticon]


Likely right, but worth the cost of the pancakes to see kids faces, and bet dad had some questions...

Thats what I thought as well. It would of been fun to hear their parents conversation after you left.

all you have to do is watch Live PD and see that druggies and thieves are everywhere. I have never had anything stolen and I have been from FL to WA to TX to all the Gulf states and never locked anything but my hitch head up. No, I have not been to the South West except for the Grand Canyon area, no problem there either.

Or don't watch, and continue to believe in the basic goodness of people. Do you think the drug companies would advertise ED drugs on a news cast that instead of reporting "2 people where shot by unidentified black males in Chicago" reported how many people in Chicago did not get shot?
