Well, the dealer was reluctant to change out the cam for a deadbolt or other more secure method. I am going to try to reach some decision maker at Keystone/Cougar to encourage them to help me secure the rear cargo door and change the design for upcoming models. I am sure nobody wants to see the headline "Toddler snatched during the night from Cougar Travel Trailer through their "unsecure" door".

The dealer did offer to rekey all my cam locks so that the CH751 won't open the door. That will appease me in the short run. I pick it up tomorrow. Very excited!

If you have any ideas of who I should contact, feel free to PM me.

Thanks - Chris

If you do a search on the forum, you'll see that regardless of which lock you have, these things are not secure. The doors are filon sheeting over Styrofoam core. A big screw driver or crowbar is all it takes.

I'm not trying to downplay your parental concern, but better locks will not keep a determined child stealer (CS) out. I'm not even too sure about how many CS hang out around campgrounds. To date, I have not come across any, but my sample size may be too small.
