Many of us will be travelling off in our caravans at some point in the year, and just like any other holiday, it is important to ensure you take all the necessary precautions.
- Similar to how you would do at home, ensuring windows and doors are closed and locked when you leave the vehicle will make it extra difficult for thieves.
- While they are stationary caravans can be tempting to thieves, so by attaching a wheel lock or clamp to it will add extra security and give you peace of mind on your holiday. Intruder alarms are advised and if you already have one installed, remember to set it.
- Security lighting is also a good idea as it can come on automatically when it gets dark and gives the impression someone is inside. This, in turn, deters criminals and will give you peace of mind.
If the caravan you have bought is not already registered with the Caravan Registration and Identification Scheme (CRIS), you should seriously think of registering your vehicle and having it electronically tagged. This will help the Police to identify amd return your caravan if it is stolen.
