Is Theft Common at Campgrounds?! RVers Share Their Experiences

• RV Lifestyle

Newbie RVers often worry about their gear getting stolen while away from their campsite (or while they're sleeping). While their concerns are logical, they may not be entirely warranted. 

A recent post in our RV Lifestyle Facebook group had overwhelmingly positive responses regarding campground theft. Here's what the post said:

"Is theft a problem with RV camping? Especially with the outside storage bins?"

The more than 200 comments contained more "I've never had a problem" type comments than we expected. It seems that the consensus is theft is NOT a big problem.

However, that doesn't mean theft doesn't occur in campgrounds! In fact, some of the commenters share how things were stolen from their campsite.
