Have you bought your dream motorhome that you have been working on for years? Are you planning a long-awaited vacation in a home on wheels? Take care of your safety, your relatives' and the property taken for the trip. Every year among fans of caravanning, the topic of theft returns like a boomerang, which can effectively spoil our holiday. Fortunately, motorhome owners are not defenseless. There are more and more vehicle securing devices on the market. Which of them are worth reaching for to ensure a peaceful rest without fear of a thief?

Alarm with motion sensors

Electronic security devices, mounted both outside and inside motorhomes, are the most effective way to protect property from amateurs of easy earnings. Just like in homes, motorhome alarms are activated manually by entering a predetermined code.


As soon as the driver and passengers leave the cabin, the restraint system is activated. When a potential thief comes in the vicinity of the motorhome, detectors will detect him and transmit the signal to the alarm control panel. Then the alarm is triggered - sound and light, and a message is sent to the phone of the owner of the vehicle with information about the event.

Mechanical anti-burglary protection

During the holidays, we are exposed not only to the loss of property in the motorhome, but also to theft of the vehicle itself. To avoid costly losses, it is worth having various types of mechanical protection to prevent the motorhome from falling into the wrong hands.


The most commonly used solutions are wheel chocks, steering and gearbox locks, which prevent the thief from moving the vehicle. Another several hundred zlotys are worth investing in the purchase of anti-burglary locks, which are easy to install and may discourage the thief from further action.

Sleeping gas sensors

Break-ins into motorhomes and caravans very often occur at night, when the vigilance of vehicle owners is dormant. However, even in this case, we are not doomed to
loss of property, and perhaps also health.

A good way to fight thieves is to install a sleep gas detector. Thanks to it, exceeding the permissible dose of paralyzing gas is signaled in a sound and light manner, similar to classic alarms. You can find a wide range of security features at your camping accessories store.

During a carefree vacation, let's not forget about the basic safety rules. First of all, remember to carefully lock the vehicle at night and when you leave it, take the most valuable items with you or store them in a special safe.

In this way, we can avoid many dangerous situations that could cancel plans for an unforgettable vacation.

Dethleffs 4-travel will replace the Globe4 model
In the segment of partially integrated motorhomes, the flagship proposition in the category up to 3.5 tons of GVM is the Globe4 model. Its successor will make its debut at Caravan Salon 2015. Dethleffs produced the first motorhome in 1983. It was a pioneer in the development of both alcove and semi-integrated camper vans at one time. It is also the first German motorhome manufacturer to use a Fiat Ducato chassis with cabin. Now is the time to improve well-proven residential solutions. Motorhomes with aerodynamically profiled bodies have been enjoying growing popularity for years. They are usually several dozen centimeters lower than those in which an additional bedroom is hidden by a large alcove above the factory roof of the car, which makes the latter unrivaled when it comes to the number of sleeping places. The dilemma of choosing a family "house on wheels" has been simplified due to an interesting innovation. A few years ago, the bed lowered from the roof lining caused a sensation among motorhome users. Today, almost every company has in its production program vehicles in which we create a comfortable bedroom with one hand movement (optional electric drives that raise and lower the bed frame). This solution also determined the popularity of the Globe4 model, which since 2009 has been built in two basic specifications for the interior layout - for two travelers and families of 4. Now the successor of this model will debut.
