    I have had Phantom Trackers on two caravans and three motorhomes and have been very happy with fitting convenience (at home), aftersales and annual subcriptions. The peace of mind is worth every penny, especially considering the considerable investment you make in the MH/Caravan.

  2. Bert says:

    Trackers often come as part of a package with the caravan. Like many, I ended my subscription after the first year because it takes juice from the leisure battery so I got constant calls. The inconvenience to go to the indoor safe storage and recharge the battery outweighed the benefit. I forgo the insurance discount and now take the battery home for the winter months on a trickle charge. I would rather dealers not add extras that not everybody wants.

    • Hi Bert
      We appreciate trackers may not be for all. It would be interesting to know which tracking device you had installed. Most are made to have very low battery drain these days so that they can run on a fully charged leisure battery for up to six months which should mean providing you use your caravan a few times of year, it should be possible to keep your leisure battery topped up and the tracker powered.

    New to caravaning so this was of great interest and worth the read.

    With gps tracker jammers freely available from under £10 to over the £100 are you paying for a system that is easily blocked and thus useless. The VHF system may be the only one but is it overridden by a cheap jammer.
