I have a Titan and Alko. But I think with the cutting gear available to would be thieves the Titan is probably more susceptible than the Alko. There’s a real heavyweight Milenco filled with concrete. But how that would fare is interesting. As said above I favour a multiple approach when it’s at home. Alko, Titan wheel locks, Alko hitchlock. And a couple of leg steady locks. The aim being to make the thieves go elsewhere where theft might be easier and quicker.

Since we've got the mover put on ours and the caravan comes home now and again the hitch goes to the garage door away from the road and 1 off 2 cars at the beginning of the drive so no one can get on or off the drive plus all the locks are on to

The Milenco with the concrete filling is supposed to have never been overcome and for storage at home might be worth considering. It is simply too heavy though for touring unless you have a Transit or something that can carry it and the muscles of an ox..

It's generally accepted that if the low life really wants your van they will get it.
Many insurers accept a Sold Secure rated chain, along with a rated hitch lock and alarm ith tilt or motion senors or any two of the three
So consider a Sold Secure Chain and lock against a clamp. Chains will fit most anything and are not much less resistant but much easier to fit and store.
