Problem seems to be more of stealing whatever is inside rather than theft of the vehicle itself. A 40' MH isn't readily negotiable down behind the local diner, but all the electronic goodies we carry are.

I agree with Tony. If you think RV theft is a problem then there are tracking devices available (law enforcement for 27 years) that work but rather easier would be a hidden battery kill switch or ignition kill switch.
Over the years we had several road tractor trucks stolen and many trailer for them, but I cannot recall any RV thefts.
The goodies inside the RVs are another matter however
