Trailer and trailer part theft

Do you have direct knowledge of trailer or trailer part theft? If so, where did it happen?

I've thought about this in connection with wheels/tires (especially since I just put on new ones), Boat Buckle retractable transom straps, and the whole trailer. Now, I'm thinking about whether I should remove the nice Mastercraft shield spare tire cover I just purchased before I park the trailer at the public park with boat ramps I use regularly. It fits snugly but still could be removed in under a minute. The area is patrolled by county park rangers, but they can't see everything.

What's your experience? So far, I haven't had a problem, but I would have said the same thing about my residence before a guy renting next to me burglarized it in 2013 to support his drug habit.

When ever I put something new on like guide pads or boat buckles, I've worried about theft but never had a problem or heard of any.

Which reminds me, I received some guide pads as a gift I haven't installed. Kinda figured I would install them as a finishing touch when the rest of the trailer was up to snuff, but that is something else that would be easy to grab.
