Hi Everyone. Well, after 15 years the RV-Dreams Community Forum is coming to an end. Since it began in August 2005, we've had 58 Million page views, 124,000 posts, and we've spent about $15,000 to keep this valuable resource for RVers free and open. But since we are now off the road and have settled down for the next chapter of our lives, we are taking the Forum down effective June 30, 2021. It has been a tough decision, but it is now time.


We want to thank all of our members for their participation and input over the years, and we want to especially thank those that have acted as Moderators for us during our amazing journey living and traveling in our RV and growing the RV-Dreams Family. We will be forever proud to have been founders of this Forum and to have been supported by such a wonderful community. Thank you all!!

Burglar alarm


Has anyone been successful or looked into installing a burglar alarm in their home on wheels.  Thoughts?

Never felt we needed one. Have seen very little crime since we started full-timing back in 2001.

I researched a few years back and found a couple of different systems that I would go with. Unfortunately, I don't remember the manufacturer names. Both systems had the feature to call your cellphone if the system was activated. There are systems on the market now that include video, audio over your cellphone. You can even talk to the thief using your cellphone.

I ended up just adding some cameras and monitor that we can watch all sides and the door of our RV when in it. It also records the video and audio from the cameras like a dashcam does.

Where do you people go that you need to have video monitoring of your rig? I just look out the window occasionally.

We have a 2011 Mk 1 "Beagle" that does an excellent job of alerting us. Especially when the a doorbell rings on the TV. biggrinbiggrinbiggrin

What got us thinking was that on another Rv group on Facebook a couple stopped to eat dinner and their Rv and another persons uhaul was broken into in a very short period of time.  Had the Rv had a audible alarm it may have discouraged the thieves.  We have never had any problems once we get to the parks we are at, but we do worry a little when we stop at rest stops and other more transient areas.

Ah, that explains it. When we stop at a rest area we are switching drivers and we never leave the coach except to do a walk around. Only other stop would be when fueling and then at least one of us is with the coach. We don't stop otherwise because we only move about 200 miles at a time.
