Have a read ...
Hi, just wanted to tell people about my dads caravan that was stolen in January 2010. He had a Lunar 1995 which he brought so he and my mum, who had cancer, could go away when ever they wanted. After my mum passed away, the caravan wasn't used so I looked after it on my driveway.
On January 6 2010 at approx 8.30pm two men and three young children were seen taking the caravan off the drive with a white transit van. They had cut the big chain that we had on it.
I was so upset, so I set to work looking for it - every week 3-4 times a week I looked on sale sites. I was told by my family after 6 months that I was mad for still looking for it, but this gave my mum so much joy, I wasn't ever going to give up.
Well, nearly a year to the day the caravan turned up for sale on E-bay. I informed the police and they contacted E-bay for the address but had to wait, so I got a friend of a friend to find the address. All I had was the name of the seller but after a lot of twoing and froing - 5 weeks later we got the caravan back. The man that had it had bought it from a local auction where he lives and then decided he didn't want it so put it on E-bay.
Now I must add, don't ever give up trying to find your caravan. It can happen that it turns up in places that are used by every day people. I've now got a wheel clamp and I've taken the hitch off of it, so it cant be towed away unless you have one with you. I am also getting an Alko hitch lock when I can afford it and will have to do some small repairs but nothing major - I am just over the moon to have the old girl back.
Now I have been told I have MS, I'm going to use it as much as I can with my kids for weekends away, and summer hoildays should be fun as I want to see as much of England as I can before I can't do it any more.
Thanks for reading and remember a woman never gives up, Helen.

Your caravan is a target for thieves and most caravan crime is preventable. Over 2000 caravans go missing every year - you wouldn't want yours to be one of them. The more security devices you have fitted the better.
Have a look at our Caravan Security page to see what you could do to increase the security of your caravan.
Buying security devices and caravan insurance isn't as exciting as buying caravan accessories, but always remember, purchasing security devices is a lot cheaper than having to buy a new caravan!
