Hello all,

Just returned from Bristol where we have put down a deposit on "Eddie" a Blue Watercooled T2 who should be with us in a few weeks time!

Having not owned a camper before I have been busy mining the many topics on this site to determine what extras I should or shouldn't add to the van.

One question I've not seen an answer to yet is:

Has anybody taken the Danbury alarm option and if so has it had much of an impact on your insurance? and is it prone to false alarms?

Cheers and looking forward to meeting up with you all once Eddie has hit the road!

Dom

Hi Dom, and welcome to the forum.

I've had the Danbury alarm from new, and I haven't had false alarm problems to date (tempting fate Rolling Eyes Smile )

I would check with several insurance companies first, as I am pretty sure some won't touch it unless it is fitted with a 'Thatcham Approved' alarm, it should also make the premium slightly less.

Daz, Dizzy - Nice to meet you and thanks for the quick replies!

I think the immobiliser will be fine for most insurance companies and from the quotes I have seen thus far I can't imagine it will be a huge amount of savings in premiums.

An alarm would give a little more peace of mind in terms of protecting any contents. But not seen much talk of them on here - wasn't sure if it was because people didn't think they were worth the money or just didn't want to discuss security measures in an open forum.

Cheers

Dom

Hi and welcome. Our van's called Eddie too (he's just a nice guy!).
You will have an opportunity to meet a few of us at Dubs in the Forest in September. Camping's sold out but you can still come as a day visitor - it'll be your local show.

Hi And welcome to the Forum
Think the majority of people rely on the immobiliser for insurance purposes.
As Harryhornet says above - it would be good to meet you at Dubs in the Forest - Link: Dubs in the Forest

Harry , Scooby, thanks for the replies and heads up for Dubs in the Forest!

For some reason I thought we had already missed that - must have been a different event in Beaulieu we spotted a couple of weeks back. It is a shame the camping is sold out but we will definitely be along for the day !

Cheers

Dom

Hi Dom
When we first insured our van we did need to have a Thatcham Cat 1 alarm so had one fitted and have had no false alarms.

Welcome to the forum look forward to seeing you at DITF.
