Tried adding leg locks .. no change in premium .. nor did ground anchor. Or additional wheel clamp / winter wheels .. a tracker knocked about £15 a year off and that was it ...and the tracker would have cost more than that anyway! Exactly. Didn't hurt to play with the quote generator to see if I co...

Re: Securing a camper

Re: Securing a camper

A pal of mine had a monitored tracker on his caravan. One night he got a call from them: "Mr Smith, your caravan has been stolen. The police have caught them".
