    Real sorry to hear that.
    What a blow.
    I saw on ukcampsite that another was stolen from Blackburn in the last few days.
    Perhaps we all ought to get out there and check out security is still in place and working.

    Hope it turns up unharmed......

    The more details we have the better chance we have of recognising it.

    So sorry to hear of your 2nd home being stolen. As fellow campers I think we can all identifiy with our campers being more than just a vehicle to get from a-b. Really hope Police catch the scum who have done this & you are soon reunited.

    I had just read about the Blackburn ( Lancs) one & had come on here to post about it. Link on Lancashire Telegraph site is here

    this is sickening, the theiving scrotes wont have a clue exactly what they are stealing, to them it's just something to get them more drug money or similar, but to the person who owned it, it's a big part of their life, with personal irriplaceable possesions in it etc, it's like someone stealing your house.

    i really do wish we were allowed to use anti theft measures like they do in africa, some nice flame throwers along the door bottoms to toast anyone trying to nick it, air operated 10 inch rusty nails embedded in the seats, a telsa coil connected to the steering wheel etc.

    i do hope someone spots it, or the police track it down, unfortunately most motorhome thefts are pre organised, and as the last post mentioned, it may have had it's container waiting for it on the docks before it was nicked, or a breakers yard ready and waiting for it.

    OR more likely it will be on an illegal Itinerant camp, as they seem to be using motorhomes more and more nowadays, something about a law change in ireland making caravans illegal on some camps or something, so they went over to nicking motorhomes instead,

    Oh I am soooo sorry to hear that!!!!! I don't think I need tell you what we would all do to the b******ds if we got our hands on them .... cos sure as Hell the judicial system wouldn't do much.

    I really feel for you. It is one of my biggest fears and just sending you a big big hug.:Sad:

    I can sympathise with you as my car was stolen from my drive last friday at 2.30am. They broke into the house to get the keys while we were all asleep upstairs and also took money /cards etc...........The good news is that the police woke us up at 3am as they had caught them in the car 15 minutes up the road, although the car has not been released yet they have the culprits in custody and they have also admitted to many other offences.

    My view is that i am happy that my family were not hurt physically and i am pleased they caught the scum...can't get away this weekend as the keys to motorhome were in car.

    Well done to the police for catching them, my faith in them is restored.

    I hope you get your van back....Best wishes

    Stolen motorhome

    My most grateful thanks to all you fellow motorhomers who understand how I am feeling. I have been in total shock. I had so much personal stuff inside. :(

    If anyone wants to email me I can send a bigger picture for you to see and possibly circulate?

    horrockskim@hotmail.com

    It's the one on my profile picture.

    I feel the same as that poor family in Lancashire but I thank GOD it did not happen at a motorway service station (as a recent gang who eventually got caught had been found guilty of taking them from)... imagine walking out of the service station and finding ALL YOU HAVE GONE!

    Mine would have included pets and what the hell would have happened to them???

    It makes me sick to the stomach how callous these thieves are.

    I hope all you guys stay safe!

    May seem an odd question to ask but it hasn't been raised in any of the other posts yet to me is possibly the most important.

    Was the vehicle and contents fully insured? If so, things may not be quite so awful after all.

    Yes you will only get current 'market value' for your van, but check out your contents policy. If you insured 'right' you will have 'new for old' which means everything stolen with your van will be replaced at current cost.
