Data Dot - Data What?

Some automobile insurers are now granting a discount for motor homes that have DataDot protection. A DataDot is very tiny and this microchip contains the vehicle identification number (VIN). The motor home is sprayed with from 1,000 to 10,000 of these dots the size of a grain of sand. You cannot see them without using a black light and you cannot remove them from the vehicle without sandblasting. These dots help the police trace the ownership of a vehicle or parts of the vehicle.

The cost is about $400 to have your motor home sprayed. If identifying your motor home is important to you then you might consider this option.

At this point not all insurers will give you a discount for taking this precaution. Talk to your agent or broker.
