Hi Folks Just bought my first caravan, a 1994 Abbey County, 2 berth. Had a quick look on here for info on hitchlocks but really have no idea what I'm looking for . Please can anyone advise me of what to buy and an idea of price, I don't really want to pay silly money but it needs to be easy to use and comply with insurance.
Thanks, I think this site might become addictive !
Any questions, ask away. There is a large amount of knowledge and advice on the Forum all based on experience built up over many years of caravanning.
Before purchasing a hitch lock, it may be wise to check with your insurers as to what their minimum requirement for security equipment is. Most insurers insist on "Sold Secure" products. This range has been tested to resist attack for a given length of time. Some insurers insist on a hitch lock and a wheel clamp being fitted when the caravan is unattended.
Once you have established their requirements, if you put "caravan hitch locks" into your search engine, you will be presented with a list many pages long to choose from. The prices range from under £20.00 for a simple hitch lock to an arm and a leg depending on the type of hitch which is fitted to your caravan. It all depends on what the insurer asks for as a minimum.
