Why You Need The Fortress Coupler Lock

Travel trailers provide an exciting way for people to enjoy the great outdoors without having to worry about booking hotels and suitcases, but they’re also a big responsibility. Whether you travel alone or with your family, the trailer is your home away from home, and needs to be protected. While locking the windows and installing a GPS tracker can work at a glance, crafty thieves won’t be deterred by the bare basics. That’s why you need the Fastway FORTRESS Coupler Lock to prevent thieves from hooking your trailer to their vehicle.

How Often Are Travel Trailers Stolen?

The frequency of travel trailer theft varies greatly depending on where you live, and due to varying state laws, there isn’t a consistent data set to draw from. For example, in South Carolina, trailers are not legally required to be registered or given license tags. As Sgt. Philip Wilkie of Spartanburg County points out, both utility and recreational trailers are often targeted by thieves. And due to the lack of legally recognized identification, a stolen trailer can lead to its owner suffering a complete loss.

The National Insurance Crime Bureau has recently reported on a growing trend throughout 2022, where local Sheriff’s offices are providing free trailer stamping and building a database of trailer owners tied to descriptions of the property. This is intended to help place a recovered trailer back with its owner. In many states, a ransacked trailer often never makes it back to its original owner.
