Touring Caravan Security
Although owning a touring caravan can be a great experience, there’s bound to be one thing on your mind – security. Caravan theft is on the rise and as such you need to take every precaution to protect your (quite pricey) investment, so touring caravan security should always be at the top of your agenda.
Luckily, there are plenty of devices out there that are solely intended to provide extra security. Wheel clamps or hitch locks are a must, and should always be installed whenever your caravan is unoccupied or unhitched from the car. You might also want to consider alarms for added peace of mind, and satellite tracking devices, although expensive, give you even more protection.
Better yet, if you invest in these devices you’ll often be able to enjoy huge discounts on your insurance policy. A lot of companies even specify that you need to have a wheel clamp and/or hitch lock as a minimum before they’ll insure you, but if you invest in other devices you’ll soon get great savings. Some offer as much as a 25% discount (or even more) if you have a tracking device, so investing in one would be well worth it.
You need to consider the storage of your caravan as well. It should be kept securely, ideally at your home behind locked gates, or if not at a registered storage site. You’ll often be able to find added discounts again, so make sure to consider anything that can offer additional security.
As you can see, there are a number of things you can do to ensure your touring caravan security. As long as you have all the necessary devices and remember to store it safely you can look forward to having many happy holidays touring the British countryside and beyond, so never overlook this most important of aspects and you can set off without having to worry.
