Motorhome tracking devices

Motorhome with Satellite tracking system / Motorhome tracking device

We offer a 25% motorhome insurance discount when fitting a Caravan Guard approved tracking device.

Tracking devices are very effective at recovering stolen motorhomes. A motorhome tracking device can immediately and accurately pinpoint the location of a stolen motorhome and guide police to a speedy recovery. Dependent on the value of your motorhome and your personal circumstances, Caravan Guard may insist on a certain category of tracker in order to be able to provide an insurance quotation. We recommend that you do not commit to a particular type of tracker without checking it is acceptable for insurance purposes.

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 S5 or S7 approved – 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

S5 Category

Classed as vehicle tracking systems. Devices have a driver identification tag which is carried by the vehicle owner when driving their motorhome. This feature means that if the vehicle is started without the tag present, it will alert the tracking device provider. This can be useful when thieves have stolen or cloned your motorhome keys.

S7 Category

Classed as asset location systems. These devices may use GPS and or VHF location technology to locate your stolen motorhome. They do not have a driver identification tag.

There is a sub category of S7 known as battery powered asset location systems – these devices don’t rely on your motorhome engine or leisure batteries for power as they have their own power source. Many can also be self installed. If your device allows self installation, it’s important to follow supplier instructions to make sure the device is well hidden from thieves and fully operational. Also bear in mind the batteries inside these devices might have a lifespan between 1 and 5 years. It’s your responsibility to make sure your tracking device remains powered at all times when listed on your insurance schedule.

The standard S7 and battery powered S7 asset location systems have different advantages. A standard S7 device can be proactive 24/7 enabling it to alert an owner as soon as their motorhome is broken into or moved. This early alert could make a big difference to whether your stolen motorhome is recovered.

Whereas a battery powered device may only wake once a day to conserve battery life – and only when awake will it relay the current position of your motorhome, but once confirmed as stolen, these devices can be switched into active recovery mode to remain on and allow direction of police to its location.

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 specific devices we already accept.
