Your motorhome is a valuable investment so it is highly recommended that you take the appropriate security measures to protect your vehicle for total peace of mind. Not only is the motorhome itself a target for thieves, but it is often filled with valuable contents such as electronics, cash and credit cards so you need to make sure it is completely safe and secure.
Although it may seem obvious, many motorhome owners forget the basic precautions such as closing and locking all windows and doors when they are away from the vehicle and never leaving valuables on display.
There is an extensive range of devices on the market today which are designed to secure your motorhome and reduce the risk of theft:
This is an extremely effective way of preventing your vehicle from being taken by thieves. The higher the quality of the design, the more difficult the wheel clamps are to remove so they are definitely worth investing in.
Steering wheel locks
These are an excellent visual deterrent and are available in a bar-lock, circular locks or chain and padlock depending on which you would prefer for your vehicle.
This device allows you to lock the gear stick to the hand brake so any thieves will be unable to move the vehicle.
A tracking device
This state-of-the-art piece of security equipment monitors your vehicle 24/7. It operates by sending a signal via remote control to a control centre when the vehicle is stolen, which detects the vehicle’s exact location and stops the thieves in their tracks.
Every time you switch off your motorhome’s engine, the immobiliser will automatically activate so if a thief manages to gain access to your vehicle, they will be unable to drive it away.
The loud siren acts as an excellent audio deterrent which is triggered when the vehicle door is opened.
It truly pays to spend as much money as possible into the highest quality product you can afford so your vehicle and its irreplaceable contents are totally secure. Further to this, a suitable motorhome insurance policy is a necessary investment to protect all your personal and sentimental items before it’s too late.
Keeping your valuable possessions safe is extremely important, although finding suitable storage can prove to be a challenging task. Your current storage may not be as secure as you think as not even lockable units will be enough to deter thieves. So, replace your existing storage facilities with a durable, hardwearing floor-anchored safe to store your precious items.
