One of the best things about the summer months is planning a holiday for a much needed short break. And with the increase of ‘stay-cationing’, many of you are flocking to holiday resorts with hotels, B&Bs and holiday parks quickly being booked up. However, if you’re lucky enough to own a rent a static caravan, they can provide the perfect holiday home. They’re cheaper than a cottage or chalet yet provide all the luxuries and creature comforts that you need, and you can return to them year after year to enjoy a well-deserved break.
Owning a caravan can be an incredibly enjoyable experience, but as with most things it also comes with inherent risks. One of the most important things that you need to think about is security, so just what are the main caravan security considerations that you need to be aware of?
Well, the obvious one is theft. Caravans can easily cost anywhere between £5,000 and £20,000, if not more, so it makes sense that you want to protect your investment. Caravan theft is a considerable threat, so always make sure you take out insurance beforehand, and ensure your caravan site/park has sufficient security in place. In addition to this, use immobilisers such as hitch locks, wheel locks and wheel clamps whenever possible, and remember other security devices like alarms and trackers.
Don’t forget to protect your possessions inside the caravan as well, because even if the thief might not be able to take the entire vehicle, they might be able to get access to its contents. Go for extra security features such as door and window locks, always make sure that all access points are locked whenever you’re not in there. And if you have any property stored outdoors, why not invest in an outdoor storage unit? It might be worth considering the outdoor Addition Caravan Storage Unit, from Asgard – a tough all-metal unit providing excellent outdoor security for caravan accessories and site equipment.
