Top tips when choosing a caravan 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 caravan 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 caravan, 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 (CAT) 6, Thatcham Category (CAT) 7 and Sold Secure - click here for details about security certifications.

  • Low battery alert

    If your caravan 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

Sold Secure Approval

Sold Secure is a well known security certification in the caravan industry. A device that has this certification is understood to have undergone rigorous testing to prove its effectiveness against caravan and motorhome theft. Please note that not all Sold Secure approved products will meet all our approval criteria.

Thatcham Category 6 approval

These tracking systems are monitored and due to their proactive nature can identify unauthorised movement if a caravan is being moved. These devices allow a caravan to be tracked by the monitoring service to precise street map level.

Thatcham Category 7 approval

These tracking devices are location systems that allow a stolen caravan to be traced to a geographic location (not as accurate as Category 6 devices). A trained finding service is used to locate the stolen caravan. (This finding service may carry a set fee).

Thatcham Category 6 or 7 for caravans

Look for those devices listed as suitable for caravans. This ensures that such devices are suitable for caravans and will operate for in excess of 6 months on a combination of a leisure battery and the units internal power supply without the need for a recharge. Great for when you are keeping your caravan in storage for long periods where your leisure battery is not being recharged regularly.

Please note, we may still not accept a device that has one or more of these certifications. Please refer to the list above.
