As caravanning, camping and motorhoming is becoming ever more popular, so is the unfortunate truth that more and more vehicles are being stolen each year.

We have listed some preventative measures that you could take to secure your unit against theft and vandalism.

Wheel Clamps and Hitch Locks - Simple precautions can be carried out to make it harder for the would be thief to tow away your pride and joy.  Insurance approved wheel clamps and hitchlocks are a good way to help protect you from theft.

Leg Locks - Ensure that each caravan leg is securely wound down and use a Heavy Duty Leg Lock to lock them in place.

Ground Anchor & Chain Set - Secure Caravans, Motorhomes, and Trailers to a fixed point on a driveway or within a garage or workshop

Tracking Devices - Should you caravan or motorhome be stolen, tracking systems vastly improve the chances of quickly recovering the vehicle and those irreplaceable valuables inside. Using the Global Positioning Satellite system, the trackers mean you are able to pinpoint the location of your stolen caravan or motorhome, enabling the police to make a speedy recovery and catch the thieves.

Ensure that when leaving your unit for any period of time that all windows are securely locked shut, any other lockers are all locked and the main door and roof hatches are all secure.

You could consider fitting a special caravan deadlock to the door this could help prevent thieves from smashing a window and turning the door handle.

Etch onto your windows a unique number, e.g. chassis number, this could help reduce the theft of your vehicle if the thief faces the prospect of having to replace all the glass to avoid suspicion. Use a special etching tool or ultraviolet pen to mark all valuables and interior fittings inside your caravan with your postcode. Keep photos and a note of serial numbers at home to pass onto police to help identify and return a stolen caravan or goods.

CRiS - The Caravan Registration and Identification Scheme (CRiS) is the national register of touring caravans, which was established in 1992 by the National Caravan Council in conjunction with HPI. CRiS helps prevent and detect crime and acts as a security check for dealers and private caravan buyers.

Insurance - Insurance is very important and even more so to ensure you are properly protected. Now-a-days Caravans represent a large financial investment, one that you should really protect against loss, fire and theft and accidents.

What to do if your caravan or motorhome is stolen

If the unfortunate happens to you and your pride and joy is stolen, we suggest you follow the guideline below:

  • Immediately contact your local police force and inform them of the theft and gain a crime number (required for insurance). Make sure you have all your documentation relating to the van to hand,
  • Contact your insurance company to advise of the loss,
  • If you have a tracker fitted, contact the tracking company to activate the tracking system,
  • Contact your local media and advise of the theft,
  • Contact us to include your loss details on this website.
