    If you have screen covers then a steering wheel cover or clutch lock are not much of a deterrent. We use a Milenco wheel clamp, on the drive, but do not carry it with us.

    We also have an alarm which seems to be the referred option for many

    Have a look on "youtube" when you have a short list.

    I am sure there will be a few clips on how easy or hard they are to by-pass.

    I went to local yacht chandler and had him make me up a length of 6mm PVC coated wire cable c/w eyes at either end . made it long enough to loop around both door handles and lock with a padlock.It cost me £12.00 plus £7.50 for the padlock
    The motorhome can still be driven away if required. We also have a Fiamma "D" door lock/handle.
    Whenever we leave the motorhome both are used and alarm set

    I would think that the only motrohomes taken off drives are taken with keys, so don't leave key to whatever security device you buy attached to the same key ring as the van keys :whatthe:

    you cant be too safe, but basic security probably wins most times, make it hard to get at, block it in, security lights etc

    disklok are the best and recommended by the Police. We have one on our MH and hubby's company have now put them on all their fleet due to theft problems. Not one attempted theft since.

    Not cheap but well worth the peace of mind.

    Time youve paid for all that you may as well pay that bit extra and go to Eddie Vanbitz and get his non starter fitted. The rascals wont be getting away with your pride and joy and you'll know exactly where it is. Had one fitted and I'm a big fan.
