Don’t set off on your first trip with your camper without checking this list of travel trailer safety and comfort must-haves!
Since purchasing my 13′ camper, I’ve spent hours researching everything I need to make my trips easy and safe. Safety and comfort is number one when purchasing a small travel trailer, so don’t forget these items on your next trip!
15 Travel Trailer Must-Haves For Your Safety & Comfort
If you’re parking your camper anywhere it could get stolen, the first thing you’ll want to purchase is a lock. Coupler locks prevent someone from hooking your trailer up to their car and pulling it away. While these are necessary, it’s not the only lock you will need. Read below to learn about hitch locks and wheel locks as an added safety measure.
As a newbie to towing, I was not aware that I needed to actually lock the hitch to my tow vehicle. This is imperative when towing your trailer, but also necessary if you leave your hitch to your car when you’re not towing. Apparently hitch theft is a thing!
Again, unfortunately theft is prevalent with these small travel trailers, so unless your trailer is in a locked garage or behind a gate on your property, I suggest investing in a wheel lock. This one is a boot for your trailer wheel, which stops anyone from being able to tow your trailer away. This, combined with a coupler lock will deter most thieves.
