There's only one type of lock we would trust on our Airstreams: the Megahitch Lock "Coupler Vault" PRO. It's the latest generation of the toughest lock we have ever seen. Considering the value of your Airstream, it's really a no-brainer.

We offer the Megahitch Lock in silver/gray to match your Airstream. This model has all the hardware to support both late model Airstreams (2-5/16" ball) and pre-1969 Airstreams that need a 2" ball.
Installation is easy, requiring no tools. Comes with two keys. This excellent lock is made in the USA.
