You need one where the nuts can't be unscrewed.
Or heavy duty linked security chain and heavy duty security lock.
If it's in an area your concerned about you may need to look at your entry door also.
Thieves are very resourceful.

Hi ,i`ve been thinking on the wheel clamp idea too .Milenco do one which think ins. are happy with,about $170 ish , also there are the SAS ones approx $200 for the 200mm one and about $350 ish to fit larger size tyres .Won`t stop the proffesional thief but thats what insurance is for but hopefully the amateur idiot wont bother .There is nearly allways one ,or even lots ,near you thats far easier to steal .

Found this post from ASB Insurance. State have the same list on their website, so I suspect all the insurance co's will be the same. However, notice the wording - 'preferred'.

I’ve got ASB boat insurance. What type of security will I need for my boat?
Last Updated: 18 Aug 2016

If you keep your boat parked near your home, you should use a tow-lock bar or anti-theft device. Our preferred methods of securing boats, caravans and trailers are:
  • Ross 600 Trailsafe
    Klamp It wheel clamp
    Ark Trailer Lock - TE12ATL15
    Hitch helmet
    SAS wheel clamp
    Trojan Sentry wheel clamp
    Tow Jam


I use the Trojan clamp myself

Most Swift caravans from around 2006 have the mount on the chassis to accommodate this AL-KO wheel lock. https://secure.al-ko.co.uk/ Should be available from a UK caravan specialist in NZ.

As I understand, the Alko wheel lock requires alloy wheels of the correct profiles and the wheel needs rotating to line things up so not easy to use in conjunction with leveling blocks. Its an Alko thing so should work on all Alko chassis vans since about early 2000's. Meets the SOLD Secure Diamond standard so is good.

Other options for caravan security include hitch locks and locks for the corner steadies. ALong with that, for home you can chain the van to a secure point, or even have a removable/lockable post so the van cannot be moved from its parking space.

Numerous solutions in the UK. https://www.soldsecure.com/ provides an independent verification and rating system that is used by the UK Insurance companies.

Here is a fairly good writeup that probably applies as much here as the UK. https://www.campingandcaravanningclub.c ... s/keeping-your-caravan-motorhome-or-trailer-secure/page1/
