21 Jun Keeping your Motorhome Safe.
Why is it important to keep your motorhome safe?
According to The National Vehicle Crime Intelligence Service Caravan Crimes within the UK have increased by 36% in recent years. Caravans and motorhomes parked on driveways, service stations, camping/caravan parks are all at risk, and particularly during summer months when ‘staycations’ are more popular. It’s important to remember that thefts can occur anywhere, and at any time, no one is certain to be safe unless they take sensible precautions. Criminals are often known to steal valuables and cause immense damage to property, therefore it’s vital to prioritise the security and safety of your vehicles.
How do Criminals breach your motorhome?
Typically, Caravans and Motorhomes are not designed to guarantee safety and prevent break-ins, the windows on your vehicles are unquestionably the weakest point of entry, the catches on the windows themselves are made out of plastic, they are flimsy, weak, and vulnerable. Unfortunately, many perpetrators are privy to this, and they can easily exploit this vulnerability by simply sliding a device, such as a screwdriver or a wire, to effortlessly open the window from the outside, and subsequently gain access to your vehicle. Such methods are often favourable among perpetrators as they can enable a discrete and seamless approach to commit theft.
