Keeping Your Motorhome Safe Throughout the Summer and Beyond

Staycations are back on the agenda with more individuals opting for a UK campervan or motorhome holiday.

Data from the National Caravan Council indicates a 70% annual increase in registrations of new motorhomes and campervans, with industry experts predicting this trend will continue. 

The demand for rental motorhomes and campervans has surpassed supply in recent years, a trend likely to continue this summer as more first-timers choose to embark on a motorhome holiday. 

The second-hand motorhome market is also thriving, but with the rise in sales and rentals, there has been a corresponding increase in thefts of and from motorhomes. According to the latest available figures from the Home Office, thefts have risen by 50% in the last five years.

It is now more crucial than ever to ensure your holiday home on wheels is secure and safe, whether on the road, parked at home, in storage, or at a campsite. 

The team at Adrian Flux provides valuable tips on how to safeguard your motorhome for the summer and beyond.
