I have a vinyl clad steel cable and a padlock that I run through mine to keep honest people honest. If someone really wants to steal it they'll get it no matter what I do.

So far I still have it and have hauled it all over the US, into Canada, and to Alaska.

Me too! This is more secure than locking in it a compartment anyway.

I fabricated a frame out of 1 inch angle and bolted that to the bed of the truck. Also fabricated a strap that goes over the top of the generator and is held in place by two lock. If they want it bad enough now, they can have it!

I modified a transporter, raised it 12", which fits into the rear hitch on the back of my 5th wheel. Mounded the generator in the center of the transporter, made a frame of PVC pipe and a had a cover made which covers the entire transporter for weather protection. The generator weights 106 lbs and is a 3500W unit. Will run one 15K AC unit without any problem.
