    I agree with you regarding security of your motor home most owners don’t do anything until it is too late, I have had Yale locks fitted to the two front doors of my vehicle cost £150 and fitted my own on the side door, plus a Thatchem steering wheel cover cost £95 well worth the expense.

    No help in preventing motorhome break in’s but with recovery,
    many owners would be happy to have a code? painted in large letters on the roof,
    making identity easy from the air, and cannot be overcome by the thief, this code could be relayed to the police by the tracker system fitted to the vehicle, and would allow unique codes for vehicles to be read from the air

    • Thanks for posting your idea Clive and it’s one we’ve shared with the National Vehicle Crime Intelligence Service in the past. It seems that roof markings do have their place but would probably only offer a minimal increase in theft recovery. If there became an industry standard number format and database, and then this was linked into the ANPR (automatic number plate recognition) system on our roads, roof markings could have some real value.
