So we would boon dock quite a bit and leave the trailer in the bush during the week un-attended.
With our old trailer I would just disconnect and store the batterys for safe keeping but two big deep cycles became a chore to handle it became a project to secure them on the new trailer.
I fabbed up a checker plate aluminum cowel to slide over the existing battery tray bolted to the angle iron on the four corners , the battery's are not removable without taking off the cover.

I then put a master lock cable lock through the battery cover(drilled holes) over top of the battery tray in between the battery's and now the cover cannot be removed even if you unbolt it.

As always nothing is theft proof if they are determined but this is no easy fast removal , thankfully it only has to be done a couple of times a season lol.

Looks nice. How much do you have in material cost?

I went to a shop I work for occasionally and he charged me $80 for time and material.......I can't remember if there were other things in that bill too lol it was done almost a year ago.
Its a little too close to the trailer body but for boon docking I had two big deep cycles on hand , if I ever change to a lower profile battery I can modify it to drop it down a bit.
