    Camper door locks change and cam locks for storage

    Has anyone changed the door locks out for more secure RVlock type lock? and/or have you changed out the storage locks for cam locks?

    Welcome to the forum! There are several threads on here talking about changing out both locks. Here's a link to one:

    Yes! Switched out the front door lock in 2012, have moved it to our current rig when we traded. Love my RV LOCK LLC lock!

    Also we put cam locks on all the locks on our first NorthTrail travel trailer after it got broken into, someone must have had the same key. Then we did the same when we got our 2010 Elkridge. Our current Big Country has slam baggage doors, so we put the RVLOCK baggage locks on those, but the front compartment under the nose doesnít so we put cam locks on that door. No keys needed for storage or entry.

    I drank the kool-aid and installed one of the keypad/ remote fob, keys, etc, door locks.
    But we never use it - my reasoning is the contents are worth less than the damage a crook would create.
    The fifth never gets locked, even at night when we're inside (with my big dog and a firearm or three).

    I'm glad I didn't go to the extreme and change out all the compartment locks as well.

    I just bought new RVLOCKís for the front and rear doors for our toy hauler (2019 cyclone 4005). I like the idea of keyless plus the security aspect. Iím blown away that 75% of the rv keys out there will open my trailer. What the heck manufacturers! Why even have keys if my neighbors can open it with their keys? Stupid!

    I will be changing out the cargo bays etc as well in time. I love the idea of one key works everything. I started putting all the keys on my key ring and I was ridiculous!
