If you are the owner of a motorhome or converted van please review your security considering the following:
•If you have an alarm or tracking system, pay for the subscription and use it
•Fit visible physical devices that deter thieves
•Improve driveway security with bollards, lights and CCTV
•Add extra security to all doors, especially locker doors if they lead to the motorhome interior
•Consider roof markings to help identify the vehicle
•Think about an aftermarket VIN chip system if one is not already fitted to your ’van
•Apply window stickers to warn potential thieves that there are hidden security devices in use
•Do not leave registration documents in the motorhome, as they can help thieves sell it on
