Frank, that is exactly the type hitch vault I was looking for, thank you!
 

When the TV is connected, I’m not too concerned, but it gives me nervous twitch to leave a disconnected trailer when boondocking.

We use the Megahitch vault on the Airstream.

We use a Fort Knox hitch lock. Not as pretty as a Proven Industries but just as tough and a little less expensive.

I also loop a large padlock through the two safety chains and attach them to the front basket so the trailer can't be dragged by the chains.

Are you looking to secure the hitch while traveling or while parked?  The collar style works for both situations.  The big heavy Proven Industries lock only works when parked.  I have both 🙂.   The Proven lock can double as a boat anchor.

Looks like a great lock- if you buy from that link, you can use code "BRIANS10" and get 10% off, which puts the total at $249 including shipping.

We've used a bulldog collar, towing or not, plus a ball type lock while camped,  for 16 seasons.

More locks to defeat, more time needed for the jerk...

Some people also deploy locks or chains on wheels. We don't.
