Please be aware. Motorhome and Camper Van thefts are increasing across the country. 

If you own one of these vehicles, please ensure you don’t present an easy target for thieves.

Here are some crime prevention tips that we recommend:

Have CCTV at the place you park your vehicle
Consider fitting a dash camera and rear camera
Invest in a removable driveway/parking post
Lock any access to your garden, driveway or garage
Fit a good alarm/immobiliser
Have a tracking device fitted
Use steering wheel and pedal locking devices
Have the vehicle security marked
Remove any removable items that may be seen through windows
Keep the keys locked away safely in your home
Take some good quality photos of your vehicle and keep them safe, these could be used to identify your vehicle if it were to be stolen.
Report any suspicious activity around your vehicle to the police
