Motorhome Theft on the Rise!

Motorhome Theft on the Rise!

Motorhomes seem to be on many thieves Christmas lists this year as thefts are on the rise with Fiat motorhomes being targeted. Fiat motorhomes from 1998 are equipped with electronic immobilisers, however, it seems thieves have managed to figure out how to override the factory fitted immobilisers. The availability to purchase technology online to override these immobilisers are easier to access which allows thieves to start the motorhome without having to put a key in the engine.  Due to this, additional methods of prevention have been advised such as steering wheel locks and additional locks.

Fiat responded to these claims by pointing out that the base model motorhome is fitted with a Thatcham approved immobiliser but not an alarm, these must be specifically spec’d by the consumer. However, Fiat do control most of the motorhome market share therefore this spike could potentially be due to more Fiat motorhomes being on the road.

Fear not! There are ways to tackle this rise in crime. Tracking devices are available to purchase with some insurers even introducing them as mandatory. Taking necessary steps to protect your motorhome may seem a tad extreme, however, it will help prevent your motorhome from being stolen and deter potential thieves from ruining your day! Always be on the safe side and protect your motorhome the best you can. At It’s Motorhome Insurance, you can find assurance and peace of mind in an insurance policy relevant to you and your motorhome requirements.
