My approach is threefold.

I take a wheel off (stored in house) and put it up on a yellow axel stand.

I also have a yellow 'hitch lock' on the trailer hitch.

Finally, I fly a skull and crossbones from the top of the house.

Anyone know any good simple easy to put on wheel locks.

I'm using a SAS wheel clamp, a cheap thing I bought on EBay and a Bulldog Titan wheel clamp.

I would have thought, I will gladly be corrected here as I'm no welder, that if Oxy Acetylene was used to get them off the tyres would pop. Aren't the more expensive clamps made with reinforced steel. Probably wouldn't stop someone in a quiet yard nicking it but outside your house I would have thought they'd get noticed.
The JSB HUBLOCK takes 5 minutes to fit. If you've had boat stolen you'll be happy to do this.
A thief couldn't remove it in two hours.
There are lots of wheel clamps you can fit in a couple minutes, but thieves can get them off in less than half a minute.
The best wheel clamps are tested by SOLD SECURE, their test lasts two minutes and doesn't include oxyacetylene.
The HUBLOCK has been sold to well over one hundred customers, most to people who have had caravans stolen, some twice and even three times.
To date we haven't had any caravans stolen, or even heard of a failed attempt.
We know of one customer who returned to find six heavy set guys with three white vans, scratting their heads, looking at the HUBLOCK fitted to his son's caravan next door.
They had stolen their two caravans a couple of months earlier and had returned to take the new replacement vans.
When asked what they were doing they said they were collecting old scrap iron and then left.
Chains, ground anchors, security posts, wheel clamps and hitch locks have little resistance to oxyacetylene, the HUBLOCK is designed specifically to resist this. The website gives information and details of the testing carried out.

A insured by Smith and Wesson sticker on or around property does wonders in addition to the actual item, you see that, it creates a great deal of doubt.
One sure way to help prevent theft, lock it up in a building with no windows, out of site out of mind.
