Ours is a godsend - means I can get my van onto the front of my house hitch first wihout "trapping" myself. I can then lock my van to the hitch post that I have concreted in. Whilst nothing is a 'sure thing', it would take a very determined thief to get it off the drive un-noticed.

thought once over of putting ours in front first to make it even more impossible for it to be `lifted` from the back garden but the door would be on the wrong side for loading up etc.if it was to be mothballed for a few months over winter i may try it but not planning on laying it up for more than 4 weeks at a time.
We stick ours in like this because if we put it in the other way it tries to lift the jockey wheel end. It may help deter thieves, but I am sure they would find a way round like everything else. Every hindrance for them is good though.
Brian I have one just like yours but longer, my drive is approx 60 ft long up hill...so even if I have towing hitch up the hill they have to move an auto mondeo first and if they can get that past the post and the locks ect off Mavis and disthingy her alarm with out attracting attention then they deserve to keep her....lol
