Reversing camera
looking to fit a reverse it camera to my motorhome,as when towing my car I can’t see it ,not even in the mirrors ! Looking at a wired one and twin camera , anyone use one and what make , any pros or cons ?
In life ,always have a plan B Dodgy
We have one fitted in the car but inbuilt. Looking on Amazon they have loads to view I always read the reviews before buying and how many stars there are.
Sorry I cannot recommend one.
For info on Touring in Europe go to
There is one fitted in my Auto Sleeper clamped over and replacing the normal rear view mirror. This one acts as a normal mirror when forward gears are in use but switches to a wide angle TV picture when reverse is selected. It’s superb!
The MH is in its storage barn at the moment but I will check the make ASAP.

Quite a few years ago I fitted one on the back of my caravan. The package I used was similar to eBay item number :174214128723
This is the kit.

I didn't want to drill the back panel for wiring, so I fitted it at the back under the floor. It gives a worm's eye view, but I don't mind. It shows what's behind me!

The wiring is clipped to the underside of the floor. Power for the camera can be taken from the 12volt fridge circuit. A connector is fitted at the boot, with the remainder of the wiring going under the car's carpets. The monitor is fitted with a suction cup to the left of the windscreen. Power for the monitor is taken from the cigar lighter.

I took the easy option and got a WiFi rear view camera for my trailer caravan. It is viewed on any device that is logged onto the WiFi and runs a free application. Fine picture on my tablet in a holder on dashboard.

It is a cheap £15 one off e-Bay as I wanted to prove the concept but, as its working so well, I'm about to hard wire it to the sidelight circuit.

Fortunately I have one fitted as standard in my X3, looks a bit complicated to me JD
