just been watching the news on beeb one and they were talking about caravan thefts.

earlier on they had a caravan with 3 locks on it, hitch lock wheel lock and it was chained to a large removable post.

45 seconds and it was all off, barely heard anything,

expert that was there saying locls are complete waste of time now,

Electronic Trackers are the ONLY way to go.

Don't want to take this off topic - but one travelling family was responsible for up to a 700k worth of caravan thefts over a number of years. Took 19 police forces to catch them - which is laughable. http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/england/w...re/8555576.stm
