Safety and Privacy in Your RV

Posted on: December 28, 2019 at 5:33 pm, in

There are a lot of things to think about when planning an RV trip, including your safety, security, and privacy while camping. Official campgrounds are, generally, pretty safe, but it’s always better to play it safe on a motorhome vacation. Here are some tips to help you protect your safety and privacy on your next RV trip.

Always lock up

When you feel comfortable in a campsite, you can start to get complacent. But forgetting to lock up your RV even once can lead to your belongings or even the entire vehicle being stolen. Make sure you always lock your doors and windows at night and when leaving your motorhome empty.

Keep valuables out of sight

It is risky to leave unattended items outside of your RV, especially if you’re heading out for the day. Pack everything away and keep it out of sight of the windows. Being able to see that there’s something worth stealing inside your vehicle makes it more of a target. Keep things tidied away or use RV window shades to prevent people from looking in.

Safes and lock boxes

For real valuables like cash, electronics, etc., you might want to secure these further by traveling with a safe or small lock box. These can be tucked away somewhere hard to find inside your RV or you can get small, portable lock boxes to take with you during the day.

Clamp your tires

If you want to make sure someone can’t drive away with your RV, then buying a clamp to affix to one of your tires while you camp is a good idea.

Security devices

You can secure your RV just like you’d secure your home with personal security systems. Motion sensor lights outside your RV are a great tool for both safety and security. A light could deter a thief and also alert you to someone’s presence. And, if you’re moving around in the dark, a motion sensor light will help you see where you’re going. You can even install alarms inside your RV, which will go off if someone breaks in, drawing attention to them and, hopefully, causing them to flee.
