GPS Tracking on an RV???

I am renting my camper on Outdoorsy and RVshare and I am looking at different devices so I can track the location of my camper and I thought I would ask here and see if anyone has any input. THANKS!

with the caveat that laws vary from state to state, but make sure you double check your state's relevant privacy laws. The GPS tracking devices can be a bit of a minefield in the leasing world - not sure about the short term rental market. More often than not, disclosure and consent are the key, so just make sure your rental agreement has appropriate language . . .

My first trailer was stolen from a storage yard, I never saw it again so I decided my next one will have GPS tracking. I did a bunch of research and decided to try this:


I made the right choice. The initial price is higher than some but the very reasonable monthly fees more than make up for it. The best part is that it only transmits in timed bursts, so the detectors some crooks use likely won't work. That also means the rechargeable battery lasts longer.

Here's my initial thread with more info:


Well over a year after I bought it I'm still very happy. Fortunately I haven't actually needed the tracker, but I like knowing it's there.
