    Hi Guys, whats the opinion about the best steering wheel lock available suitable for motor homes please? (efficiency V price) I kept the wheel lock I had on the caravan, but its a terrible fit due to the larger size wheel the moho has.

    I use a Stoplok on my steering wheel, had to buy the 4x4 version as a car one is too small. No idea how effective it would be to a determined thief but it is a deterrent to some degree.

    If it's a steering wheel lock the disc lock is as good as any I've seen.. fully encloses the steering wheel..but the lock can be picked....better than nothing and a visible deterrent along with a pedal lock..
    If it's a wheel clamp you are wanting ,,not sure...gave up on them for above mentioned bits years ago as I found it a pain.ta andy

    I use the 4Tress lock (was available from Halfords but seems to be discontinued but usually on Ebay), hefty piece of kit..

    Just visit YouTube to see how fast any of them can be disabled.
    Portable angle grinder will take around 3min to break the best of them.

    Might as well not bother imo.
    Immobiliser will stop the casual thief, difficult to stop anyone more determined....

    The problem with those "locks" is that:
    It gives the thief a far higher level of leverage to break the steering lock - in the same vain as the old fashioned way of doing it was to yank the steering wheel round with a length of scaffold pole.
    Then, they are easy to remove without the keys.
