Motorhome vehicle tracking systems are dependent on your insurance company requirements and the value of your vehicle.
These devices are not car dependant and work in the same way for cars, vans, campervans, leisure vehicles and motorhomes. The level of tracker may be a requirement for vehicles over a certain threshold value, but where the van is situated may also come into play. We urge our customers to be sure of the level they require before booking, as a tracker cannot be upgraded later.
Caravan trackers do work on a different basis, however. This is because a caravan does not have an engine and we fit dedicated caravan tracker systems with their own key. This device is a still a full Thatcham Cat S7 and can be used for Insurance approval.
A Thatcham motorhome tracker is either a Cat S5 or a Cat S7 device. Category S5 vehicle tracking systems automatically commences tracking if movement is detected. Category S7 asset location systems may rely on the car owner calling the monitoring company if a theft takes place.
The best motorhome tracker system for UK customers is a Cat S5 with immobilisation. If the vehicle is moved without a unique tag present then theft tracking is activated automatically. Immobilisation can stop the van from restarting and is activated by the monitoring company.
An annual tracking monitoring subscription is required for all tracking systems. Each dedicated centre is monitored 25/7/365 and must be manned throughout. This service requires an on-going subscription for the vehicle to remain insurance approved.
