Motorhome stolen

A friend had his Motorhome stolen from outside his home in Maidstone last night at 10pm.

Ford Autotrail Tribute T715. Reg FT14 FKY.

Had a Tracker, wheel clamp, and a steering wheel lock fitted.
The Policed tracked it still in Maidstone then lost it.
The owner had only just come out of hospital after having a knee operation.
Info has also been posted on Facebook Grasstrack banter.

That's pretty audacious. I wonder how long it takes to get past a wheel and a steering wheel lock?

I hope he gets it back intact.

Oh no! I will pass it on to my daughter who lives in that area. Quite a high traveler population nearby. If they have "borrowed" it then that may be why the police may have lost it. A friend's two stolen dogs were known to be on a traveler site and the police refused to enter it.

Chances are they were only after the engine and gearbox, easy removal involves a tree and a chain.
