    The standard door lock on my autotrail don't look very substantial. is my best bet door frame security locks and if so one in middle or one top and bottom.

    We've got one in the middle but obviously one for each section of door would be best :thumb:

    If you have the top and bottom of the door latches, don't worry ! I was locked out of mine and it took the guy nearly 90 minutes to get in !!:Doh::Doh::Doh:

    A picture of the wife or the mother in law in all the windows usually frightens them off:Rofl1:

    So what do you do after increasing the door security-------board the windows up.

    Almost all window catches will give up with a sharp pull without tools

    But some Itinerant breaking in would take seconds with a big screwdriver as they dont care if it damages unlike trying to unlock your own van

    as for the original question, more is usually best so one over each door frame catch works well. however as secure as you make the door, its only got plastic windows, which are easy to open
