    It is a good idea but once your caravan has been nicked and towed away with
    a tranny van to a campsite ´coming near you soon´ you would need a helicopter
    to spot it.

    It may work but if they caught you snooping nearby
    you might get your head tarmacked.

    Wasn’t thinking of a Caravan, but the California.
    Had similar on my Defender.

    Why did you remove it. Did the new owner not like the idea ?

    Sold it to a Dealer and transferred the SkyTag to another vehicle. You can change the vehicle details and pay a lesser amount for a new vinyl set.

    Easier to fit to a smooth roof than a ribbed roof. Waiting for some measurements from SkyTag for a 5/6/7 Letter/number code to fit the ribs.

    Can be any combination of letters and numbers from 3 - 7 in total, which is linked to your vehicle registration number and address when you register and order.

    A great idea. I am seriously considering this. Plus some other 'decoration' so it does not look so obvious at first glance. Thanks WG.

    My T25 has one on the roof but I paid nowhere near that for it.

    They seem good and should be picked up on cameras on motorways etc and make tracing where they went easier IF the police investigate (don't hold your breath these days). There are also cameras at docks etc so they could tell if it went on a ferry etc.

    The results will depend on respose from the authorities but it can't harm though can it?
