The Fendt model was just under a year old and had cost something in the region of £20,500.
The caravan was parked in an area that the unfortunate victim had been developing and he had been living in the caravan temporarily until he had a more secure and permanent home. The victim, only 21 years of age, now finds himself effectively homeless, not to mention significantly out of pocket at the ill-fated loss of his caravan.
He hopes the released CCTV footage, along with the offers of rewards for information that leads to the finding of his lost home, will help towards recovering his caravan and bringing the perpetrator to justice.
This harrowing story goes to show how easy it is for opportunists and thieves to strike. The man in question was living in the caravan at the time of its theft and had only vacated it for a short period of time, yet most caravan or mobile home owners only use them for sporadic trips and holidays, leaving them vacated and vulnerable for large chunks of the year.
Theft can happen at any time, so it is important to consider the security of your caravan during times when it is not being used.
When the winter months hit and your caravan might just be sitting in the drive all season, why not consider looking for your local caravan storage in Devon or Cornwall to ensure that it is safe from theft or damage when it’s not in use?
