    Dreadful, just dreadful.
    In what circumstances do most motor homes get stolen? Is it the new, (expensive) blingy ones with supposedly good security, or the older models where it's not deemed worth spending £800 on a tracker system plus £199/year monitoring?
    Who is stealing them and where do they end up? Surely most people have outstanding finance, which would show up somewhere down the line?
    Our cars cost a lot of money and are protected by field sensor alarms etc but I never really worry about where I park them. Perhaps I'm missing something.

    I would imagine that the keys were stolen, but to be honest on a 53 plate the immobiliser was removeable. I hope that guy gets it back quickly

    Fingers crossed xxx

    Surely with this number plate recognition thing, the Police will stumble across it? Do hope he gets it back undamaged.

    Thank you all for your comments, yes it is on face book, by all all account there is a gadget you put in the cigar lighter and and it blocks the alarm system and tracker systems you need the wiring to be independent . From the main loom? I am no expert , so get in touch with the specialist in this field ,still no sign of the vechicle, thank you for the recent post
