What are your minimum security requirements for touring caravans?

Our minimum security requirements are that your caravan is fitted with a hitchlock, plus a wheel clamp (covering at least one wheel nut) or axle wheel lock (e.g. Al-Ko Secure) when left unattended and detached from your towing vehicle. These devices must be made by a reputable manufacturer.

Instead of the wheel clamp or axle wheel lock you can also meet our minimum security requirements by removing the caravan wheels and storing them away from the caravan. In certain circumstances we may agree in writing that you can secure your caravan using other security devices.

A trailer tent or folding camper can be secured by either a wheel clamp or hitchlock.

A fifth wheel caravan must be secured by a pin lock when detached from your tow vehicle.

Dependent on the value of your caravan, trailer tent, folding camper or fifth wheel caravan, and its storage location, you may also require additional security. Our friendly insurance advisers can advise on what may be needed in order for us to provide a quote, call us on 01422 396 769, lines are open 8am-8pm weekdays and 9am-4pm weekends and most bank holidays.
