Sharing another stolen Motorhome, it's tragic please look out for someone with a Motorhome that's new to them! It might be a stolen one.

I have been there and understand exactly how you feel and 'gutted' does not begin to describe your feelings.
Right! To work.... if you have not already done so, begin writing a list of everything that was in the van, this should come under Household Insurance. Ours was up to Ģ2000, which did not cover everything but helped.
The van and any permanent fixtures comes under the Motorhome Insurance.
In our case if we had receipts we got full price back, without receipts we got half the value.
Any photographs can be helpful, reminding you of things gone and can be proof of their existence.
To our surprise we ended up with half a dozen close lined sheets of paper, filled with the contents we could remember.
Again to our amazement, we were paid in full by Saga, four weeks from the day it was taken.
In our case the thieves had broken our homes back door off its frame to get inside and take the keys. I have heard of vans stolen where the keys were not hidden or locked away. Insurance companies are not so helpful in those cases.
Finally, to our amazement, they did not put up our protected insurance policy.
We never heard of our van again..... the Police were fantastic, offering emotional support which we declined but in hindsight we should have accepted.
Good luck, we will be thinking of you.

I meant what area was it stolen in

Could be anywhere by now I know, but perhaps a geographical link could have helped

I am sorry Barron and Bigtree but when someone is in real distress, having had their Motorhome stolen and all of its contents, I do not doubt that they are thinking of their immediate situation and not really appreciating having their disaster turned into a joke.
Perhaps if you had been in their shoes, wherever they live, your comments would not have been appreciated.

rosalan,
I think you are missing the point, bigtree and myself were remonstrating with siggie after his thoughtless joke after Aldra had asked "stolen from where???" and siggie replied with a facetious "their driveway" when it was pretty obvious that Aldra wanted to know where in the country it was stolen from!!!
Of course its no laughing matter and my thoughts and I'm sure bigtrees thoughts are with Maria at this terribly distressing time.
If we have offended anyone then I am really sorry but maybe the remark made by siggie is more worthy of your attention.
