Has anyone installed a safe in their HL 5th wheel? Where (don't tell if you'll have to shoot me!)? I'm wanting to buy one and have it bolted to the floor(?). Is under the bed the best place or would the bottom of the closet be better? Thanks...again!

I bought ours at Wal Mart and installed it in the closet where the washer dryer would be installed. It's not fire proof and would only slow down a determined thief, but, I put it in primarly for the friendly folk that may be in the trailer.

We put ours on the left side of the bedroom closet in the cubby hole. We did not bolt it down as it is fire resistant and heavy (135 pounds) Here is the link http://www.homedepot.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/ProductDisplay?storeId=10051&langId=-1&catalogId=10053&productId=100487747

I built a safe book and installed it where the W/D would go. I do have a locksmith as a nieghbour so got a 4 way door lock from him and cut it down to fit the box. It is glued and screwed together out of 1" plywood with hardboard outside and insideand 6 screws hold it to the flooor. It will so down someone trying to get in but not stop the determaned thief.
