    I reckon I could do with some sort of alarm, but now need some advice.

    The camper lives on the drive, and when the bike is in, with all the riding gear, there is a few bob on board.

    I don't need all whistles and bells and looking under £100.


    Wadda reckon ?


    Oh and needs to be simple to fit, as I am a numpty when it comes to electrickery .

    Top be honest if you have that much value on board, do you think a £100 alarm is going to be worth it.

    I would save up and invest in a better alarm

    I don't know. That's why I asked on here.

    If it makes a lot of noise, then that's all I need really.

    If its loud you want, ask Eddie at Vanbitz about their Growler system. Apparently its so loud it carries a government health warning!!

    I've fitted 2 bike alarms from these people, can't fault the quality, never let me down. I phoned them once and I was amazed how knowledgeable the guy was.

    They do car ones as well.

    dependant on which base vehicle you have, you may have to fit a can bus compatible alarm. best price for one of those ive found is £50 plus fitting if you cant do it yourself.

    auto electricians cost about £50+vat per hour and takes 2 hours to fit an alarm properly. so £100 puts you firmly into diy only category
