With the cold winter weather starting to ease, our minds can start to turn towards the warmer days, lighter evenings and summer nights. With more and more people choosing to take their holidays at home, motorhomes have become a very viable option for those looking to take in the sights of this glorious nation.
For all the vehicles available to you, one of the most popular at the moment is Fiat’s Ducato motorhome. Not only is this one of the most popular and affordable motorhomes available, it’s also becoming quite the collectors item. It has won the “Best Motorhome Base Vehicle 2023” voted for by Promobil readers for the 15th consecutive year, so it’s clearly a hit!
Whilst motorhomes, including the Ducato, offer a freedom to go where you want and stay how you want, they also offer thieves the opportunity to steal something they want, but that doesn’t have to be the case. If you have a Fiat Ducato motorhome now, or are looking to buy one in the future, or any motorhome for that matter, then keeping it safe and secure will be your number one priority, but how do you do that?
What’s available to protect your motorhome from theft? Let’s take a look.
It’s worth noting that all these fantastic devices work well on any motorhome, van or truck, they aren’t specific to the Ducato. We can install them for you no matter what type of motorhome you have.
The Motorhome Protector from leading security company SmarTrack is one of the most affordable vehicle tracking systems available. Not only does it use the latest tracking technology incorporating GSM, GPRS, GPS and LPS frequencies, it also comes with a free dedicated smartphone app to help you manage your device on the go.
This tracker also gives you access to SmarTrack’s own control centre, offering 24/7 access should you need them. They will be able to help locate your vehicle and even liaise with the police to ensure that it’s not only found, but recovered as quickly and painlessly as possible.
As you would expect, access to the app also gives you a range of alerts and notifications to help you stay informed about every aspect of the device. You’ll get alerts if the battery is disconnected or if motion is detected. It also comes with European coverage straight of the box, so if you’re planning on travelling abroad, then we’ve got you covered.
Phantom Tracking will be a common name to many of you, but they now trade as ‘Moving Intelligence’, which is a very fitting name as anyone buying this tracker will have made an incredibly smart decision. They have been a force in the leisure vehicle security industry for over two decades, so their knowledge and reputation for quality speak for themselves.
The iTrack S5 Motorhome tracker is one of the very best systems for your home on wheels, Ducato or not. With it reaching Thatcham’s highest S5 classification, you can rest assured that you’re getting a premium product. The S5 moniker means that you’ll enjoy the very latest in security technology with the Driver ID tags.
These tags are small enough to store on your keys, your wallet or in your pocket and give you an extra level of security. If the tags aren’t in close proximity to the vehicle, then it simply won’t start, giving you peace of mind that while you’re out and about, your vehicle will be staying put.
It’s worth noting that they also offer an S7 version, if you’re looking to spend a little less. It may not have all the features of the S5, but it’s still a fantastic tracker.
If you need a motorhome tracker that is approved by the insurance industry to satisfy the requirements of your policy, then the S5 Motorhome Defender from ScorpionTrack might be perfect for you.
Not only is it insurance-approved, it has also been designed and manufactured in the UK to the Police’s own Preferred Specification. As such it comes with protections against many of the tricks used by the modern car thief including key cloning, OBD (On-Board Diagnostic) hacks and key theft.
Like the previous offering from Phantom (aka Moving Intelligence) this is an S5-rated tracker, so comes with the Driver Recognition tags and all the alerts and notifications you would expect from this exceptional device and its dedicated smartphone app.
Should it be stolen, the Defender also comes with a remote immobilisation option to stop your motorhome dead in its tracks.
