Do I really need Caravan Security anyway?

Caravan Security is an important issue however you may be thinking ‘whats all the fuss about Security, nothing ever happens’. One of the difficulties is that there isn’t any really good data relating specifically to Caravans (Campers, Motor-homes ect) and the occurrence of issues. This is partly due to the way it is reported and classified and also that a lot of things are not reported. In Europe they seem much more on the ball with reporting (and Caravan Security) but unfortunately not in Australia.

Out of interest we did a quick media scan the other day to see what had actually made the forums, papers, police or TV, we know this would be just a small amount of the total however it is a fair barometer of the problem. So here we go:
