Going to buy a good quality wheel clamp for my next van..
From my searching this looks like a decent clamp ..

http://www.saundersonsecurity.co.uk/acatalog/Bulldog_Centaur.html

would welcome comments on this make of clamp, suggestions for alternatives and general advice about clamps.. .not concerned about the cost.. just want the best available clamp that is insurance approved.
This is not in place of an alarm or other security door locks and devices.. just another deterrent.. a determined thief can no doubt remove.. but my thinking it will deter the opportunist thief.

Mainly to use at home, but will also probably use on sites and aires when we leave the van unattended

We have a Bulldog Centaur CA2000C clamp as it's the best with Sold Secure Gold rating that we could find & very happy with using it when storing the motorhome - great design & fits well. It is big & heavy so use a Clutch Claw when out & about (y)

We have a bulldog clamp. First two years in the van we carted it everywhere and used it. But bulky, heavy and got in the way when travelling. Now only use when parked on the drive at home.

We have a Bulldog clamp but only use it when Motorhome is in storage, as Pikeman says its a bit bulky and heavy to be carrying around.
Just remember no matter what you fit anyone with a portable handgrinder will have it off in under 5 minutes.

Hi @Gellyneck

no, not yet, been too busy spending money on other stuff and 'essential' toys ..

since I posted, I bought the Hymer which has a VanBitz Strikeback and extra door security.. so may not bother now..
not saying that replaces a wheel clamp, but they are big and heavy to carry around and where we live is very low risk ..

More than toes wet now!
Thanks Jim
We've got alarm \ tracker fitted also.
Would only be using it whilst in storage and leaving it at "home" whilst travelling (almost exclusively sites).
Thinking along the lines of visual deterrent and "every little helps" philosophy!

The weak point of all clamps is the lock

Find out what sort of lock it has and then do a search on YouTube to find out how easy it is to open

You will be surprised how easy some locks can be defeated
