Default Wireless rear view camera recommendations

Anyone have a wireless they think is really good and works with an all steel bus? Primarily interested in hooking up trailers and keeping an eye on my toad.

John Finn used a wireless,it helped him hook up his trailer and he may have had one on the back of his trailer too.
Cliff Vaughn had one too i think,once when he and Finn were running together the pics would jump back and forth between toads.

I second captianbb on this. I use a Garmin RV770 GPS unit with a Garmin BC30 wireless backup camera. I replaced the original camera und used the existing wires to power the new Garmin camera.

Pro's: easy to install, no need to drill holes in the bus, can be left on all the time to keep an eye out behind the bus, has worked flawlessly, gps and camera were less expensive than many backup camera systems.

Con's: Picture quality is not the best, but good enough for a backup camera.

Let me know if you'd like more info.

I just installed a haloview 7108 .ez to install, nice clear view and you can add more cameras
.I ordered the side cameras and am undecided if I will install them the camera and mounts are pretty large `and I don t like the looks of them on the side of the coach .

I have replaced my back up system for the 2nd time. This time I went with a relatively cheap wireless system off of Amazon. Just got done installing it and used it locally. So far it looks good but time will tell. I only have one camera but can have up to four. The 9" screen makes it very nice! I went with the 9" screen to fill the screen hole of the original screen.

I've tried to no end to get the picture to be right side up but can't get it with this android

I had one installed. Shows the rear, turn on a turn signal and it shows that side. So a camera on each side. Let the door close and you lose your signal/picture. And the picture isn't great. But it's ok.
If I had to do it again would go with a wired setup. Especially since the wires are already there.

I prefer hard wired systems Check out RVCAMS.com located in Baton Rouge or call (225) 261-9946 they sell adapter cables to go from the black & white to newer color cameras.
