  • Mass production can mean that loopholes in security can become common knowledge so additional security is required.
  • Keys can be obtained through burglary, hooking through letter boxes and threats to owners.
  • Caravans, trailers and boats can be easily stolen and their appearances changed.
  • Tracking devices can be hidden and activated to allow trace and recovery by the police.
