I took your advice. It does not seem to be appropriate for a mobile environment.
First of all the RV will have to be in cell phone coverage for whatever carrier they use. Secondly for the advanced package you will also have be in your cell provider's coverage.
In addition, the first response option of sending the police to your home would hardly work for a RV that is one place one day and another place the next.
Which brings up another issue. I now think it would be a good idea to have an "In Case of Emergency Contact" sticker on our RV door with our cell number on it.
Granted it will make a bunch of noise where your RV is. However if you are really camping, there may be no one there to hear it.
Another drawback in my personal situation is the fact that we travel with cats. That means the motion detector would have to be disabled. In the standard package that leaves one entry detector. However, our motorhome has three doors.
Our home is protected by ADT, so I'm fairly familiar with alarm options.
I'm still going to start with looking at auto alarm systems. However, I'm not going to decide until I look carefully at "Remote Coast System". it looks very promising at first glance.
