    Booked our RV in there for a week, when we moved from there to here...

    Gates into the storage left open for all and sundry to walk in... during the day... "NO" CCTV, .... and away from the actual showroom...

    The perimeter fence a kid could jump over it going through one of the other unit`s land...

    We took ours off after 3 days..... never received a call on my mobile to this day 10 months later.. :Angry: to ask if we had removed it our selves...

    Advice is to steer clear of their storage... :Sad:

    There is a place a couple of mins drive away, which I should imagine is an insurance recognised compound/Storage area... CCTV, Security, Swipe card to get in and book I believe to remove vehicle.. :thumb:

    Only down side, I should imagine it cost`s a lot more...

    I saw that on facebook !! He was saying he was in a club and to look out for it !
    I commented that " so much for secure storage" and asked what club !!

    So far no answer, I think there is more to this than meets the eye ! perhaps an insurance scam !!!!

    HOW? even these would have required a proper key,since the beginning of the century vehicles have become impossible to hot wire. The only way I can see it being nicked is either a replacement key or a suspended tow.
    Mmmm seems a piscatorial to me.

    Any distinctive markings? Like a big smilie :Smile:
    it was been one of my 'I wonder whys' people go to great expense to make the inside of their M/H so nice and personal but the outside is boring white, and all look the same.
    who was that person who said vans/campers had to be white
    anyway terrible news and now on a travellers site near you. so the police will never recover:Angry:

    Errrr..... sad to say a deaf and dump bloater with an autopsy fixation and poor eyesight can get round standard key security systems pre 2009 with some extremely basic kit and a small amount of know how..

    As a by the by, that chassis cab I can get in to in less than 30 seconds.. and I aint no expert ! I should think someone more practiced would do it in less than 10 !!
