    I took the advice of funsters and contacted comfort insurance. They wouldnt insure us as the van will be stored at a farm with no locked gates...although it is manned 24 hours.
    Any suggestions ? What happens if you stote at home or on the street...that must cause problems?

    OK on a drive but a lot of companies will not insure if kept on a road.

    Parked on the street that's whar my one is I just whip the engine out to immobilise it :rofl:
    on a more serious not what age is it.
    maybe emobilise it so it cant be started and put a wheel clamp on it there are other ways PM if you want more info
    the harder you make it the les chance of thef it just becomes a pane when you want to use it (y)

    Farms are not a great place to store motorhomes, they are rarely anything like secure and they are by definition full of wildlife. This includes rats and mice who love nothing more than a nice cosy motorhome to make their nests in. We had a van in last week that is stored on a farm and we have previously found evidence of wildlife nesting in it, this time we found much of the underbody protection gnawed away and damage to the handbrake cable plastic coverings.

    My advice would be to find somewhere less agricultural and more secure to store your motorhome.

    You will definately find its cheaper to store at home than in any kind of storage area.....unless you live in a city centre.
