    Hi

    We have ordered a new motorhome, but were surprised to find it did not have an alarm as standard.

    Could funsters please advise whether most new motorhomes have a Category 1 alarm.

    Cannot speak for ALL motorhomes but ours did NOT come with a pre-fitted alarm.

    Have owned a few vans only 2 as far as I can remember came with alarms.

    One a Renault Master panel van conversion.

    One a Laika motorhome,

    Apart from those think I had alarms fitted prior to collection, or uplifted speck of immobiliser fitted as standard.

    It is on a Renault base, so has an immobiliser, but what do you mean when you improved the spec?

    The Dealers had extra protection doors etc fitted to make up to Cat 1 alarms, can't remember exactly what was fitted but know it came out cheaper than full alarm, but this was a few years ago, and this was on Fiat bases.

    The Renault high top came with a Cat1 alarm or equal according to insurers fitted as standard to the Master by Renault.

    Our latest van a Hobby on a Ford base with deadlocks and immobiliser as standard on Mk7 only required a tracker according to Caravan Guard so that is all we have done. Tend to feel that alarms aren't the total deterrent, if someone is determined to get in there is not a lot you can really do only try to make it awkward and trackers seem the way to go.
