We lost two empty coolers to a bear when we were tent camping in Alaska back in the 90's.

The only thing I have ever come close to having been stolen was a "Y" water faucet adapter. I came out of my trailer one morning to find the folks in the huge Class A unscrewing it from the water faucet! I said "What are you doing? That's mine!" And they said "Sorry, we thought it belonged to the campground." I guess they thought it was fine to steal from the campground but not from me! I realized then that folks steal for lots of reasons, not just to make money. That being said, I leave out chairs and camp stoves on a regular basis. Nothing else ever went walk-about.

I had a nice Honda generator and a bicycle stolen from my home garage. It was broken into. I was out the $1K deductable on the HO policy.

When I mount my current genny on the trailer tongue, I secure it with a 5/8" steel cable and a fat padlock. I realize that it's not Fort Knox, but it should help to keep honest people honest.

Been RV'ing since 1957 and have had two things stolen, a folding side table (and I knew who did it) and a new water hose. I found both but the table wasn't worth it and I couldn't prove the hose was ours as I hadn't put our name on it.

We had permanent sites with various park models for 35 years before I retired and we got a motor home. Never had anything stolen until this last year. Pulled onto our site one time last summer and discovered 2 concrete blocks from my fire pit were gone.

I have heard of thieves going up on the roof and making off with solar panels. Makes a good case to not have ladders.

My grandfather had a Coleman lantern stolen from his camp back in the 1960s.

They make alarm systems for the portable sat dishes. When it is picked up off the ground it must have a plunger that sets off a noisy alarm. Its an add on I saw in the camping world catalog.

I have never had anything stolen while RV camping the last 4 years or tent camping the last 30 years. I have a Dish Tailgater and leave it out unlocked and un-alarmed. Sometimes I get so mad at it due to it's occasional inability to pick up a satellite signal through the trees that I wish someone would steal it!
