Using a Motorhome GPS Tracker

Motorhome Theft on The Rise In The UK
Looking at the specific figures of motorhome thefts in the UK alone there has been a reported rise of 30% in the last 12 months. Over £4 Million pounds worth of motorhomes have been recovered using Motorhome GPS trackers or some design. These facts are reported and updated by NaVCIS  https://navcis.police.uk/
However, thousands are not recovered. We have specific experience of this and have been working with owners to protect their motorhomes from this event.

What? Where? Why? How?

What is being stolen?
Again, looking at figures generally the motorhomes worth over £30,000 as the re sale value is high and they can sell the motorhome for cash. We don’t really see the motorhomes over £85k stolen that frequently.
Where are they being stolen?
The most common area is hard to identify as this is affecting the whole of the UK. We have seen an increase North of the West Midlands. The most common style of theft is directly from the driveway. We have seen some inventive ways including taking it for a “Test Drive” and the owners not going and guess what? It never comes back.
Why? How?
The cash re sale value is still high and there is particular group of individuals who just don’t care if its stolen and are happy to make a specific order to have one stolen. There are even organised gangs of people outside of the UK who steal to order. They are easy to steal and don’t tend to have and serious theft barriers to the ignition access.

Combating Motorhome theft using a Motorhome GPS Tracker

You have to be sneaky. If you think buying a tracker and simply fitting it will work then think again. Find a place that isn’t next to the fuses where its easy to fit or find.  Tape the wires out of eyesight. If they do look for them then make sure they are taped up or made to look like other cables doing another job. Set you zones up on our Trackserver APP. Make sure your push settings are setup on your phone. Here is a short video to explain this.
