    Have been discussing the matter of safty on another forum so would just like to add my bit...When abroad 90% of breakins are scum from the eastern block countrys who put sleeping gas into your van...therefore a deterant before they get to the m/h would in my opinion be a better solution...maybe this company has the answer.....Dave.

    I would love to see some of the evidence that Guardia Civil have to back their gassing claims. So would the Royal College of Anaesthetists:Rofl1:

    Am I right to assume that you are just having a bit of fun and winding us up Dave JM?

    If not then thank goodness for my New Year's resolution...

    Would you have less chance of being gassed if you used solar panels instead of a generator, drove a Merc based motorhome rather than a Fiat and belonged to the Caravan Club and the Camping and Caravan Club.
    Think that covered most of the contentious subjects .:Smile:

    after a good night on the pi$$, the only thing that would wake me is fire licking my ass...then it would be the pain, not the heat.

    anyone could break in and i wouldnt know but in spain i could tell the gardia it was a gas attack and they'd believe me ?

    and you could say i am affected by gas in the van but not the type you refer to :Rofl1:

    'Spreading Alarm and Despondency'.

    Used to be a chargeable offence in the Armed Forces. :Wink:

    Sleeptight seem to use gas attacks as a scare tactic to promote sales. In my mind this shows how unprofessional they are. :Eeek::Eeek::RollEyes::RollEyes: At a show last year the salesperson (security professional :laugh:) :Eek!: talked to me about about gas attacks in the first 30 seconds of his blurb.:Doh: There website has a page dedicated to dodgy reports about gas attacks. :Doh::Doh: Its pathetic. :Angry::Angry: I would not buy one for this tactic alone. This might be a good product, but marketing it this way to people who are, in the main, older couples (like us) and selling on the back of a frightening myth is despicable. If this is a lie what else in their blurb can you believe. :Eeek:

    Sorry Dave but this subject has been done to death, gas sinks to the lowest level, it takes a different amount of gass to make everyone sleep (due to different body mass - differing amounts are needed to induce sleep too much and you dont wake up), yet so far out of all the reports of someones third cousins brother that have been gassed there have been no fatilities (of which im glad) but how can the theives get the amount of gas right unless you allowed them to weigh you all including the dog then agreed to be put asleep individually.

    Amore likely senario is that being on holiday and relaxing one lets ones normal guard down, you will have probably driven more miles than normal for you,you stop have a nice meal, a drink or three and with the help of all that fresh air you have enjoyed whilst driving with the window open you sleep really well. (after all you are on holiday and relaxing), then some very quiet people who know how to break in rob you without disturbing you.

    Well you know how many times gas has reared it's fictitious head on the forums, there comes a time when it gets intolerable. People are being frightened unnecessarily or even being pressured into parting with a lot of money for no good reason.

    The OP would do far better to buy Jim's book than waste money on this much "security".

    You can't buy security, you have to learn it.
