motorhome

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.

SMARTRACK MOTORHOME PROTECTOR

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 ITRACK S5 MOTORHOME TRACKER

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.

SCORPIONTRACK S5 MOTORHOME DEFENDER

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.

 Whether you drive a Fiat Ducato or any other motorhome, protecting it is key to using it.

 Don’t let the joy of an open road open up a world of pain by not securing your vehicle.

We all love spending time at home, but for those with a campervan, the whole world can become your living room. In recent years, the sales of motorhomes have consistently increased. In fact, according to the National Caravan Council (NCC), motorhomes and campervans are being sold in record numbers across the UK.

In the latest figures released by the DVLA, 16,608 new motorhomes were registered between July 2020 and July 2021. This represents an 8.25% increase from the previous year, which was also a record at the time. As a population, we now spend around £1.15 BILLION on motorhomes, caravans and campers in the UK alone every year. It’s clear that we’re staycationing more than ever and whilst that’s a positive thing for us, it’s also an increased market for those looking to steal them.

If you’ve just bought your first motorhome, upgraded to a newer model or simply looking to take your first step on the journey to having your holidays on wheels, then we’re going to look at some of the best ways to secure your motorhome for every budget.

MOBILE SECURITY CONSIDERATIONS

It’s important to remember that, unlike most other vehicle security, the contents of your motorhome will be much greater than with a car or bike. If the vehicle does get stolen, it’s likely that almost all of your possessions at the time will go along with it, so you need a robust security solution for when you’re away AND when it’s stored at home.

Many thefts that occur with motorhomes and caravans are often split into two categories; entire vehicle theft when the vehicle itself is stolen in its entirety and secondly, the theft of possessions from the vehicle itself.

Generally speaking the former is carried out by professional thieves, whilst the latter tends to be more opportunistic. Thankfully, we’ve got you covered on both ranging from high tech to old school, but all designed to help you secure your motorhome no matter where it is.

HOW TO SECURE YOUR VEHICLE

It’s easy to forget, especially in these days of cutting edge technology, that many of the most effective ways to keep your motorhome secure is with a physical deterrent. They might seem like devices from a different era, but they are relatively cheap and work very well. They can come in the form of a steering wheel lock, wheel clamp, seat chain or pedal locks.

Any (or all) of these physical locks offer additional security to your motorhome. Whilst none of them will offer 100% total security, no system will offer that, they do all provide a visual deterrent to thieves.

To anyone looking to steal a vehicle, any physical lock means that the vehicle will take longer to steal. Added time means they’re more likely to be spotted (or caught) so use them regularly and advertise on the vehicle that they’re fitted. Any of those devices listed means any would-be thief might think twice before trying to make off with your vehicle. 

MOTORHOME SECURITY WITH A VEHICLE TRACKER

If you’re looking for something a little more high-tech, then a car tracker might be exactly what you need. We stock a fantastic range of trackers designed specifically for motorhomes, as well as some that work incredibly well, no matter what vehicle you have.

One of the most popular features with motorhome owners is the ‘lifetime subscription’ feature that comes with Phantom’s iTrack S5 and Ultimate models, the S5 Motorhome Defender, S5+ (with Immobilisation) and S7 ALS trackers from ScorpionTrack, aswell as the fantastic systems from SmarTrack including the Motorhome Protector and Trident.

All of these systems offer all the features you would expect, including access to  24/7 call centres, a dedicated smartphone app and a raft of alarms and notifications to keep you fully informed about the status of your vehicle.

In addition, some of these systems, like the S5+ with immobilisation and even the Meta Trak Deadlock have a very useful feature called ‘No Tag, No Start’. This basically means that if the small ADR tag that comes with these systems is not within range, the vehicle will not start. In addition, with those trackers, the 24/7 control centre can also immobilise the vehicle remotely should it need to giving you complete peace-of-mind.

The vast range of trackers offered at Infiniti Tracking allow you to:

 Easily transfer your tracker from one vehicle to another.

 Buy a lifetime subscription model that lasts for the life of the vehicle.

Protect your motorhome anywhere in the world and have it installed for you anywhere in the UK.

Whether you’re rocking a 20-year old caravan or a luxury motorhome with all the amenities of home, you’ll want to keep it secure. Infiniti have been working in this ever-changing, demanding industry for over 20 years so we can help you navigate the market to find you the very best tracker for your vehicle, your budget and your personal circumstances. Our friendly team are available to you for help, advice and sales from 9 am – 6 pm, Monday to Friday on 0330 043 3993 so just ask!
