Tracker

Has anyone found and used a good tracker in case their trailer is stolen? I've been reading and I don't know what to look for.

I looked into this a few years ago, and got the cost of monthly coverage and the very slim chance of it being stolen, I made sure I just had a good replacement cost insurance program.

Maybe something better has come along.

While I understand Jim’s statement about good insurance, no matter how good, insurance will not reimburse you for the year or two year wait to replace your trailer. I have a GPS tracker from Find It Now. The yearly monitoring fee is approximately $85. I consider it a peace of mind supplement to my trailer insurance. YMMV.

Just curious…does your insurance offer a discount if you have a tracker installed?

No. But I purchase insurance to cover financial losses. I purchased the tracker as a satisfaction provider if a scumbag thief is quickly apprehended and gets taken off the street.
