Security Safes

Anyone installed a safe in their rig? I'm thinking something smallish: maybe big enough for a laptop, camera, purse, etc. Also thinking something lightweight...for obvious reasons.

I have seen several new rigs with wall safes in the rear closets and thought it sounds like a good idea.

Thoughts??

Our steps retract from steps to platform for passengers feet. space under steps would make a nice hiding place with or without a ton hide valuables in safe. My laptop fits plus other items. This makes a very nice concealed hiding place. A friend claims he hides valuable in a bag with a tag "dirty diapers". He has an old stained diaper on top of stuff. Said his unit was broke into and they took all kinds of stuff but left the "dirty diaper bag " while stealing 2 flat screen TV's. safe travels.... ed

A secure safe is where nobody knows nor suspects it will be.

It is secreted away in a place obvious to none, not revealed to any. It is in a place you find that is perfect. And thats where ya put it.

Best wishes!

This is the most common place. Very possibly the 1st place a perp will look. They can be broken in to. Or ripped from moorings.

There are other good places! Look around.

I bought my mh used and did not receive a key to the safe. Didn't know it was there at first to even ask. Once discovered it cost $38 to get one key made with photo copies of registration to prove ownership. So now have key to safe and yet to use it. Lol
