Planning ahead for safer touring
If you’re planning to head off on an extended trip in your motorhome – lucky you! It’s such a great way to see the country and discover new places. A motorhome really is a home from home, one that you can kit out with all the accessories and extra bits and pieces that makes it uniquely yours. Now is an excellent time to hit the road, thanks to record low fuel prices that look set to stay that way for the foreseeable future, so any trips planned for the spring or summer should cost you less, which is a bonus!
When it comes to making up your to-do list for the trip, give some thought to your vehicle’s security. If you haven’t already had your motorhome fitted with an alarm, this is definitely a good idea. This is especially relevant if you’re heading for the continent. Years of austerity and high unemployment in countries such as France, Spain, and Greece in particular, means there are more desperate people about and your motorhome could be vulnerable to opportunist thieves. Motorhomes can be seen as easy targets and if you’re stopping overnight in non-designated sites, the risk of attracting unwelcome attention is considerably higher.
At Lion Systems, we regularly fit category 1, insurance approved alarms to motorhomes. These come with a range of programmable settings, they are easy to use, and give you added security when you’re travelling, both in the UK and on the continent. Features to look out for include remote control, central locking, self powered siren, internal and external perimeter detection, and night arming, for when you’re asleep inside. With a good alarm fitted to your motorhome, you’ll feel you and your motorhome is better protected. To find out more about alarms, or other security options for your motorhome, don’t hesitate to give us a call.
