Has anyone mounted and used one of the cameras that mounts around the license plate? My 2008 Winnebago Outlook did not come equipped with a camera and I thought about using one of these. I would appreciate any comments anyone may have.

There have been discussions about these. I recall that a concern exists about how far the wireless signal will transmit. Longer RVs may not have a signal strength that carries from back to the receiver in front.

If you purchase one, don't try the wireless ones, mine would only work the first time to place the transmission in reverse and required a restart to work again. The license plate location actually worked very well for backing and hooking up my trailers. When I get back from Hawaii, I can check the brand I purchased and let you know if needed, I will check this thread again when I get home. JH

I installed one of these cameras at the front of my MH to see what is there. I have almost 10 feet of blind area in the front, with the camera in place I can see everything up to my bumper. It works pretty well for me, but the transmission distance is rather short.

Is the Rear View Safety (not wireless)a real problem to install? I looked at the Amazon site and some installers said it was easy, some said difficult. I'd be putting it in a 24' Born Free. Any suggestions?

HEMIDAZE, I just purchased an RV and was planning to have the camera you used installed. I gave the dealer the information and got a call back from them - they said it's for a CAR and can't be installed in an RV! Does this make any sense? Sounds like yours works fine.

I have a red mark on my forehead where I just slapped it. What a great idea!

My motorhome is a 29' Winnebago Class C. I don't think that would be a problem as far as transmission distance. I think I will give it a try and if it don't work properly I will call RV Cams and talk with them.
