An observation. Drove a 2021 Entegra Reatta diesel from San Diego to Tucson a few days ago and found it had that top down 360 degree view of the rig feature. I've heard of it on cars but never experienced it. Was surprised to see it in a motorhome. I don't know how it works but it seems a nice feature when parking, backing, etc.

That feature uses a number of wide-angle cameras placed around the perimeter of the rig and combines them into one image on the screen for the driver.

There was a system available called "Owl Eye 360" that provided this capability, but last I heard their software had a lot of issues with creating a decent image and I think they went belly-up.

Most Class A rigs already have multiple cameras (ours has 4) making parking, driving, and changing lanes a breeze. A top down image would be nice, although it is not something I would fret about not having or plan to invest in the near future.

I put in separate screens for each camera 5 years ago. It doesn't quite give a top down view but functionally is very close.
