Top tips when choosing a motorhome tracking device

  • European cover

    Make sure the tracking device you choose can operate in the countries you plan to visit. There are different types of European cover offered by tracking devices. Some devices will simply be able to tell you the location of your motorhome when it is stolen abroad, whereas other devices offer full European monitoring and recovery with locally accredited monitoring centres to co-ordinate police response on your behalf in European countries.

  • Proactive tracking devices

    Such devices can alert you and your tracking device company as soon as thieves disturb or move your motorhome, allowing for the quickest possible recovery.

  • 24 hour monitoring centre

    Leave the monitoring and recovering to the professionals. We do not accept self monitored devices.

  • Certifications

    Tracking devices that have been certified as Thatcham Category (CAT) 6 or Thatcham Category (CAT) 5 – click here for details about security certifications.

  • Low battery alert

    If your motorhome is not used for long periods, battery power to your tracking device could soon run out, rendering your tracking device useless. Some devices will alert you if battery power runs low.

Caravan Guard Recognised Tracking Device Certifications

Thatcham Category 6 approval

These tracking systems are monitored and due to their proactive nature can identify unauthorised movement of a motorhome. These devices allow a motorhome to be tracked by the monitoring service to precise street map level.

Thatcham Category 5

These Tracking systems are designed specifically for powered vehicles such as motorhomes (not caravans) and are effective against the current trend of thieves breaking into houses to steal vehicle keys. Owners are supplied a separate driver identification tag or card which is intended to be kept separate from your motorhome keys. If your motorhome is moved using keys but the driver's identification tag is not present in the motorhome, the tracking device monitoring centre immediately identifies your motorhome as likely to be stolen. CAT 5 devices allow police to immobilise a stationary vehicle under controlled conditions. Such systems tend to be a more expensive to install and monitoring fees can cost more than a CAT 6 or 7 device.

Thatcham TQA (Thatcham Quality Assured) approval

Thatcham Quality Assured (TQA) tracking and location devices are tested to prove that the device meets minimum insurance requirements. The TQA accreditation has been replaced by the CAT 6 and CAT 7 accreditations. There are certain devices (such as Trackstar TM100) that we continue to accept as they did carry TQA approval but which have since been superseded by newer devices that adhere to CAT 6 standard.

Please note, we may still not accept a device that has one or more of these certifications. Please refer to the accepted device list above for more information.
