Hi anyone,

Does anyone have any useful information regarding the tracker system. We are interested but not sure how exactly it works and what power source it needs to run properly? and what's all this about annual registration?

Regards,

Garry and Nikki

After a lot of research the best tracking system for a caravan I have found is Tracker Monitor.

The package is expensive but your caravan is monitored 24 x 7 by a manned control centre and it is they that notify the police after checking with you that the movement is unauthorised.

Police cars nationally are equipped to track these.

I firmly believe that your caravan must be found whilst it is still in transit and not after it has been despoiled.

The annual fee is to cover the control centre monitoring but you can pay a one off fee to cover "duration of ownership".

My own costs were:

Hi

In both the latest caravan club magazine and in the forum you'll find discussion on using mobile phones and mobile phone tracking website to monitor your van, the CC magazine shows you how to wire it up to the vans battery to keep it charged and the service is a lot cheaper then the tracker system. Only down side is it won't tell you if the van stolen.

Hi Garry & Nikki - Trackers are great but very pricey. We had our van micro-dotted by Thiefbeaters who claim 100% recovery of stolen vans - prevention is better than cure as the van is invisibly marked all over making any components of it useless to a thief as they can all be easily traced by the Police.

Hi

100% recovery is a ridiculous claim. Most stolen vans are not recovered. Any van with "microdotting" has already been found if the microdots have been read to identify the owner. This is not "recovery" but identification which is completely different. There is no way a microdot leads to the recovery only the identity of the registered owner. The sooner caravans are subject to registration the sooner the problem will diminish. With a log book required for buying and selling the back street dealer will virtually disappear. Yes, bring on MoTs and towing tests as well that will get rid of some of the dangerous rubbish being towed around the U.K. Reading some of the forums really frightens me.
