    Hi Funsters I've just changed my van an 08 autotrail Cheyenne 630 LB
    and I'm looking for an alarm to be fitted not bothered about tracking facility
    thinking of up to £200 would appreciate any suggestions :Sad:

    i am not absolutely sure but i think you are likely to get a basic "CAR " alarm for that but you never know what fleebay throws up :Eeek:

    other funsters may have a better idea.

    good luck

    Send a private message to EddieVanBitz another funster member. I believe they give a funster discount and you could get a decent alarm within your budget from them

    They have a selection of alarms and trackers at extremely reasonable prices.

    They are insurance approved so make sure you tell your insurance company that way you get a discount.

    I had a Strikeback alarm fitted by Vanbitz last May. It replaced the previous 'car-type' hybrid that was fitted originally. I would strongly recommend Vanbitz as their alarm is in a different league, but even with a Funster discount, it will be more than your budget. However, it is still a lot cheaper than the current value of your motorhome.

    I used my local Cobra specialist to upgrade to a Cat 1 in 2011. Excellent job with all wires neatly tubed and hidden.
    He incorporated the existing system and added a few more sensors and charged me £165.
    No doubt you will be quoted much more when some specialists know it is a motorhome but shop around and check there previous work.
    Good luck.

    No help, but does any one know where or what the alarm does in a compass aventgarde 150, under the back seats is a birds nest of wires, all original I would say as they go into trunking but among them is a white cable with what must be alarm cables in it as they are very thin and there is a fuse that says alarm but I can't see where it is or what it does, anyone know
    Thanks
    Not worried about it just curious

    I had one fitted by Dave Newall. Not a flash thingy, but one that done the job. If someone oppened the doors or windows, it went off, can be used in the van whilst being in it too.

    although the alarm system may be fitted when new i doubt it is a standard compass fit and will be after market if its for the habitation. you'll need to find something that identifies the manufacturer.

    My alarm was already fitted when I bought the van
    It has perimeter sensors on all 5 doors and bonnet, it has internal sensors inside which can be turned off for when someone is inside but leaving the perimeter security on, also it has an antijack alarm in case someone fancys the alloys :thumb:

    I dread to think what it all cost to fit :Eeek:
