How to Secure a Static Caravan

A static caravan can provide the perfect getaway, giving you the ultimate holiday home that you can escape to whenever the feeling hits. The only problem could be keeping it safe and secure when youre not there. Its a lot more susceptible to vandalism, accidental damage and even threats from the good old British weather than a traditional bricks and mortar holiday home, so just how can you go about properly securing a static caravan?

The first thing you need to do is choose the right plot. Its not the best idea to be too close to trees, just in case their branches (or even the trees themselves) fall down during a particularly violent storm. Make sure its in as secure a location as possible, preferably with screens to prevent anyone getting access to your precious caravan.

This brings us nicely onto securing the caravan itself. It needs to be properly secured at all times, because although they?re not particularly easy to move, it can be done. This is particularly important if the site is unmanned during the off-season, making proper security devices essential. Always make sure that doors and windows are locked at all times and invest in burglar alarms and other safety devices too, and try to take as much expensive equipment with you as you can when youre going to leave it for a few months.

But, one of the most important things you can do is invest in appropriate insurance. You wouldnt even think of not insuring your home, so why wouldnt you give the same consideration to your holiday home? You need to be protected in the event of any theft or damage (of the contents as well as the caravan itself), and if you do you can be confident that you wont lose out financially should the worst happen.

As is the case with most things in life, prevention is often better than cure. If you take the appropriate safety measures youll have no problem securing a static caravan to keep it as safe as you can throughout the year, letting you return to your holiday home without having to worry.
