The only problem I have with wheel locks is that if the thieves aren't mindful and checking they can still hitch it up and try to drive off with the trailer. The wheel lock will stop them from getting far but they might damage the trailer.

Also.just giing to ad that people have been knowing to let horses loose, too. So if I ever need to stop somewhere, I make sure the back trailer doors are locked so noone can get in with my horses.
Some weird souls out there.

PETA. It's "cruel" to put horses in a trailer.

They're apparently MUCH safer/better off running loose down the highway.

yeah you don't hear about stolen trailers around here too often. When you do its because the trailer was left in a dark kind of isolated/ or easy to load up (with out being noticed) and haul away spot.

When I boarded I kept my hitch locked and my trailer locked up tight. But honestly if someone is that determined, they will steal it no matter what you do to prevent. The best you can do is make it as unappealing as possible.
