    My new bailey has this… Is there a reduction in insurance premium for vans fitted with this?

  2. Andrew Smith says:

    I like this idea and I would very much like this to be available as an after market fit to slightly older ‘vans when it goes in for its annual servicing.

      Thanks for your comment Andrew. If you’re the registered keeper of the caravan you can apply for a retro fit kit, which includes window lozenges, RFID chip and window labels. CRiS have told us that this is incredibly simple to fit but if you’re not comfortable to fit yourself you could take it to your servicing workshop. CRiS do advise not to put the RFID chip near a microwave or any large pieces of metal, like the chassis, and it does need to go inside the caravan out of view.
      To order a kit you have to be CRiS registered and apply for a kit from CRiS direct. It can take up to 28 days for delivery for your unique coded pack. They do currently have a show offer available until 30.10.15 which gives you 15% off the VIN Chip pack. Contact them on 0203 282 1000 quoting NEC or visit http://www.cris.co.uk.
