I have Lo Jack on my car but had not thought of having it on my RV. I don't know what Lo Jack looks like or where it is installed on my car. The technician wouldn't let me watch the installation - said it was against policy
of the company.
When I bought my car in Atlanta, the salesman told the story of a lady who bought a car similar to mine and equipped with Lo Jack. She was car jacked, but the police had her car and the culprit within 30 minutes because of the Lo Jack.

Yes LoJack is very effective (within its coverage area), but be aware that it is self powered via battery, and will need moderately expensive service every year or so. OnStar claims to be able to help in the case of theft or hijacking as well, but they have a monthly fee, and may be easier to defeat.

We had a truck stolen from the Montreal airport. Lojack wouldn't help due to the fact that they take those vehicles and put them on a container ship to be sent to other countries. We were told it is fairly common at any airport in a port city. At least that is what the police told my husband. I would advise against parking at the Montreal airport as we almost had another car, my Subaru Forester, stolen this summer. The truck was almost new and expensive, not so with the Subaru. We were lucky that someone in the parking facility heard a suspicious noise and alerted the security (24 hr., 2 on foot, 2 on bicycles) and they stopped the thief in the act. They pursued him (50ish grey haired guy) but lost him in the airport. He had justed punched in the key lock. Police said they steal 3-5 cars per day from there. We won't take our cars to the Montreal airport any longer.

Lynnvt:

In fairness to Montreal, these thefts pretty well occur at all airports in major cities! That's why I use off airport Valet Parking such as Park and Fly, they have much tighter security, they pick you up at the door and will have your car a couple of feet from the drop off area, engine running and heater on in winter. In many locations you can also go through the boarding process right in their office including checking your luggage so all you need to do at the terminal is spend an hour or two in the security/immigration line up!!! (if you're flying international that is)

We too use park and fly where ever available. We have not found one near the Montreal airport. I'm sure these thefts do happen in other cities. However our experience with theft(my husband travels for work a couple of times per month and internationally 4-6 times per year from various airports in our region)has been at the Montreal airport. Twice at the same airport tends to leave a lasting impression.
