I have the super hard cable that is sold to keep motorcycles and trailers secure.
the key for it is on my bike's key ring.
I have never, ever used it. Carried it for years, just in case the trailer is left behind at a hotel, etc.... but, I normally leave the trailer attached to the bike.
I think the "look tough" has more effect than anything else we do.
also, for the bike, I used a Half cover for rain protection, and over that I throw a 30 year old piece of garbage looking full cover that encloses everything down to and under the belly pan... once that is on, no one that I have observed even gives my rig a 2nd look.
I also have a cover that is made for trailers, it is square and has the heavy elastic band to keep it from blowing off. I have never found that to be disturbed. It is not tied down, just the elastic holds it in place.
