Backup Camera System for an RV?

by rodperk / August 9, 2012 6:55 AM PDT

I'm looking for a good quality rear-view camera system for my RV, but I don't want to pay a ridiculous price. There are so many choices out there, but in your opinion what is the best RV backup camera for the price?

RV back up camera options
by DIYRV / June 2, 2013 10:48 AM PDT

Hi Rodperk,

There are lots of options like you probably have noticed. But two main options: Wired or Wireless. Wired is preferred if you have the time and setup to make it work as it provides a much better picture and reliabily. Wireless is of course a snap to install but can be tough to get working properly with all that distance to carry.

With wired you can either buy a whole setup with LCD, Camera, and hardware or if you have a GPS with a VIDEO input you can simply buy an aftermarket camera that connects to it like this.

For the total wired system I would have a look at the Review Safety Unit. Its highly rated and of great quality. If your looking for something less costly, I would look at the Pyle.

When you get into the wireless back up cameras it is hit or miss. The one from Peak gets decent reviews and I know a couple of people who use it and like it. I would recommend not going low cost on the wireless because you wont get anything worth keeping for any amount of time.

RV Backup Camera System
by marylefet / March 3, 2016 6:55 AM PST

wired backup camera is first recommendation , but run a cable is a great challenge and time consuming if you not familiar with electronic. another solution is that you can add a digital wireless backup camera system for your RV that pairs the monitor and the transmitter in a closed connection that helps them avoid interference.
for RV , try to add a rear view camera that comes with 4PIN connector that is both locking and waterproof which makes them very reliable. but now on the market ,there is many RCA connectors backup cameras due to its wide compatibility and cheap cost and if kept dry will be trouble free.recently , i found this rear view camera system,may it is helpful for you.
