    Stolen Motorhome, some advice

    Just checked out the site you posted this on origonally, you commented about foreign plates when it was at the petrol station getting fuel.

    Can you see the number?, if so, put it on here as there are many M/H owners in Europe and you may be lucky in getting a result, also the description and identyfing marks which you describe.

    The more info you pass round the more chance of people seeing it.

    Just realised, you only passed on this info, stupid me.

    He seems to have put in a lot more detective work than the police have. Wouldn't hold much hope of seeing it again now :Sad:

    Got a brand new MH going on my drive in March not a million miles from this one.
    It will have a Nemesis clamp, Disklok, and an alarm on the vehicle. As I am a CCTV engineer it will be monitored 24/7. Is this overkill or shall I get a tracker?

    Well put it like this Tony

    1) That bloke has got CCTV pics of his van being filled up by the thief.

    2) Last you heard an alarm going off how fast did you run down the road to see whose motor was 'alarmed' ?

    3) it is a bit unlikely that someone will ALWAYS be at home..

    Sooooo....... yes ! Get a tracker !! :thumb:

    I suppose spending that much for some scumbag to relieve you of it, it must be a tracker.

    There are an awful lot of options nowadays.. Some are a couple of pence a day to run and all work quite well :thumb:

    Reading through the posts regarding the loss of the motorhome, there was this comment about trackers - so it seems that nothing is infallable :RollEyes:

    I had 2 lorries nicked last year, box with trackers on. We found the trackers in a layby about 10 mins for where they was nicked from - Outside the Merc garage!!!

    Hope you get it back mate - or hopefully the insurance pays a decent amount

    How did they do it? Did they 'fish' the keys through the letter box with a hook and cane?
    I would have expected that that model of chassis would have had basic interactivity between key and ignition i.e a chip in the key.

    Not being funny D W, but by the cringe they must have been amazingly well hidden ! Not !

    Dunno who fitted them but I do hope the police investigated them as they would certainly be my first port of call !!!

    The immobiliser / tracker that I chose for my motorhome has a function just for this senario. A message can be sent via SMS "Stop" this will not operate until the engine is turned off, say at a petrol station or a pee stop.

    Once the engine is turned off, the unit sends a SMS message to my phone telling me where the motorhome is and brings in another additional immobiliser compelety seperate to anything else fitted on the vehicle.

    So the thief comes back to the your stolen motorcaravan, uses the keys that he has already stolen ( I assume that is how they stole the motorhome in the first place) unlocks the door, atempts to start the motorhome and it will not start!

    Now bearing in mind that he has just driven it "X" number of miles with no problem, he is unlikely to assume another immobiliser has been brought into play, and he is in a very public place, causing an obstruction and starting to feel very vunerable! He is also unable to call the RAC :Wink:

    A good piece of kit I think
