Camper still locked up in storage for the winter. Here is a shot of the rear of the trailer from our trip last summer. You can see the camera mount.

I basically used the top marker light lead and mounted an LED marker on top of the base to keep me legal.

As an addendum

You need to make sure the marker lights are not close to the camera/near the lens. The light will washout video during night driving.

Just to be clear, Backing into spaces, this camera is a real...marriage saver if you know what i mean. However, I would never condone relying on the camera while driving. The fish eye lens warps dimensions of space and time. In plain speak, images creep up on you quickly on the screen, so I still always rely on my towing mirrors for changing lanes. The only real benefit while driving is keeping an eye on the blind spots.

The Vision 2 Wireless Observation System has only 1 input for the display. There are systems out there that are wired and support multiple cameras, however Furrions NV2200 wired system looks a bit hokey to me. Maybe someone can comment. However, for the wireless sysytems I found, only single camera inputs were available.

There's a company out there call rear view safety that has pretty good ratings on the various sites.

These systems are not cheap and take time to install, so stay away from the cheap systems on amazon and ebay.

Here's a really neat system that mocks the 360 cams on the luxury cars and high end models of trucks I've been looking at. That 360 birds eye view is really cool. I have it on my Ford Edge. They have less expensive 2 camera systems too. I'm not endorsing these guys, they just have good ratings from the the usual outlets for rv accessories (amazon, etrailer, etc)

https://www.rearviewsafety.com/360-b...rvs-78317.html

Here's a cool video of it working on an airstream.



Dont get me wrong, I love my Furrion system...other than my trailer broke down in the parking lot of their world headquarters...true story and entirely too long for me to explain...so a picture is worth a thousand words..'

Mike you were correct. When i manually turned on the headlights the Furrion camera on the trailer activated right away. I also confirmed the same info with the dealer's technician. Thanks!

That is easily the biggest source of arguments when we camp.
