On our old Camry you can prevent the seats from being folded down and
you can lock the trunk so the trunk release does not open it. The latch
is surrounded by steel. No, it's not high security but it at least is
more secure than leaving stuff uncovered.
On my old Land Cruiser FJ60, which lacked a cargo cover, I built one. It
was designed to cover the rear area both with and without the rear seat
folded down. It was also strong enough to sleep on top of. I used hollow
doors supported by a frame going down to the floor. It was useful for
camping to have a storage area under the cover.
