A recent survey has shown that only 3% of stolen caravans are ever returned, but a major insurance broker has said that there is a way to drastically improve your chances of getting your tourer back.
Towergate Insurance has been explaining the benefits of caravan tracking systems, which come as standard with many luxury models.
These systems work by sending a text message to their owner if their caravan is moved unexpectedly, giving them all the information needed to launch a police investigation.
The effectiveness of trackers has been regularly demonstrated - thieves are often stopped within one hour of stealing the vehicle and in one case last year, it only took police ten-minutes to track down the culprit.
There are many caravan and motorhome tracking systems on the market, with prices starting at £399, plus an annual subscription of £99.
