There are few better feelings than being out on the open road. Whether you’re driving the latest in motor vehicular technology or a classic from yesteryear, having miles of open road ahead of you feels amazing, but what if you could improve that?

What if you could achieve that sensation and not have to worry about getting home again at the end of the day. Welcome to the world of motorhomes.

Motorhomes come in all shapes and sizes, from the classic VW Camper van from yesteryear, to the modern-day RVs that come with all the luxuries of modern living on board. Being able to head out knowing everything you need comes with you is an incredible feeling. Unfortunately, it’s also a magnet for thieves.

When it comes to securing your motorhome, trackers aren’t just there for when things go wrong. Vehicle trackers can also provide you with a level of safety and security that you might not have considered.

Motorhome trackers are always going to come to the fore to help you pinpoint your motorhome should it be stolen (and insurance companies know this), but they can also benefit your safety and that of the vehicle regardless. Let’s look at how a tracking device can help keep you and your vehicle safe.

Any tracking device worth its salt will do more than just let you know when your vehicle is stolen. Motorhomes, camper vans and caravans for that matter are going to be a serious financial investment for most of us, so you need to protect it as best you can. Furthermore, most insurance companies will insist that a Thatcham-approved tracker is installed as a condition of the policy.

Thatcham category S7 systems like the ScorpionTrack DRIVER S7 ALS and the SmarTrack Motorhome Protector both offer a great starting point when it comes to motorhome security. They also give you crucial safety features like built-in battery backup and 24/7 control-room monitoring. All fantastically useful if you’re looking for that extra peace of mind.

As we move into the mid-range of devices such as the SmarTrack Trident, also Thatcham category S7, you begin to add features like geo-fence alerts. If you keep your motorhome stored away from your own home when you’re not using it, these add invaluable safety features knowing you can keep an eye on your motorhome even when it’s out of sight.

At the top of the tracking tree, you will find products like the MetaTrak S5-VTS and the ScorpionTrack DRIVER S5 VTS. Both of them provide another level of security through Driver ID tags. These fantastic pieces of technology will only disarm the system when they are nearby. This is a simple but highly effective safety feature that ensures your motorhome stays safely where you want it to be and makes you part of the system that’s protecting your pride and joy.

Having a motorhome is the perfect opportunity to take to the roads, see the world and treat the whole country as your own bedroom. In order to keep your vehicle and yourself safe you’ll need a tracking system fitted. It offers security to the motorhome itself and peace of mind to you, so you can rest assured that your RV is as safe as houses.
