    Yes in the house and the RV

    I have a massive big old thing in the house - came from when I had a shop and had it move out when I sold up.. took Pickfords team to move it and install it... big old key thing.. In the RV I have a reasonable size one with a crazy key ..funny shaped thing and I can get a reasonable amount in it..

    Only problelm these days nothing left to put in either.. all spent on the RV.

    Got one built into the floor of the van. It was built that way, but a pain to get to - which, when you think about it is possibly a good thing :Wink:

    yep we have one in the house but no need in the MH as there is no secure way of fitting one if a low life wants it they will take it no matter what damage they do so better to let them have it with minimal damage :Eeek:

    I have an alternative to finding room on and drilling the floor. If you have the room try under your driver and passenger seats.

    My 2003 FIAT has quite a lot so I've used it for tools and a safe like the one in 'hollyberry's' link.

    Mind you I had to remove the seat to do it. Once the safe was inside the seat box I threaded a cable round the frame and clamped the ends together inside the safe just as a second precaution. The seat was then repllaced.

    In use it's the case of removing the plastic cover from the back of the seatbox to expose the safe door.

    This has saved drilling holes in the floor to bolt the safe down. The safe cannot be removed without cutting the cable and even then the seat would have to be removed to get the safe out.

    One final thing bear in mind that you buy the correct size of this safe as I've seen several different ones.

    Hope this may be of help.

    WE have a firesafe in the house. It contains insurance policies, deeds to some properties we own, our passports when we are not in the van, stuff like that. No cash or anything of intrinsic value. Like everyone else we joined the SKI club when we bought our van (Spent Kids Inheritance)
    I got it in a hardware shop closing sale. It's the sort where you have to spin a metal dial backwards and forwards-nothing as flash as an electronic code!
    We also have a small safe in the van that is in an awkward spot - it was a pig to install and would be pig to get out too-no matter how much damage the scrotes were prepared to cause. All you can do is make it too difficult and time consuming for them and hope that that the alarm turns them prematurely deaf.

    Have one in the van to keep laptop, passports, keys and british currency when abroad. It's not in too obvious or accessible a place.
