    A friend of mine had her Elddis motorhome stolen, it was parked on a driveway, with an imobiliser steering lock and wheel clamp fitted no one heard a thing, unfortunatly the wheel clamp was on the front wheel and it is believed that the thieves simply winched it up at the front, broke the side window released the hand brake and drove off.

    So if any of you use a wheel clamp on the front for security it may be better to use it on the rear wheels if possible.:thumb:

    As you know I live in Crayford :Eeek: We have a stoplok fitted to the read wheels. Prior to this we had a clamp until I noticed that parts of our drive had been dug up trying to get the clamp off. We had our first Kontiki stolen of the drive.

    If you have a reg number I will also keep a look out.

    B*******ds thats all I can say. I got a phone call a year later to say it had been found in Southern Ireland. nBy this time we had another which was vitrually chained up on the drive.

    Sorry, absolutely no consolation to anyone, had a commercial stolen not so long ago and police opinion was that it would have crossed the water to Ireland before we arrived at the yard in the morning.
    Same happened approx twenty years ago and police then gave the same opinion, Ireland must be pretty crowded place with all these dodgy vehicles? :Angry::Angry::Angry:

    They don't all go to Ireland or the continent. The toerags that stole our old autosleeper kept it and used it for a good 10 months before trying to auction it in Luton. :Angry:
