Rear view camera ?

I just purchased a wired camera system from rear view safety. My question is how to mount the camera to the back of the fifth wheel. It is a heavy camera. How did you guys with that camera attach it to the back wall?

If you have a rear ladder you may be able to do the same thing I did. I made a shelf across the rear ladder supports and mounted the camera to that. I ran the power wires off of the rear running lights. Yes, you can still use that step.
I have a few pictures in my WiFi picture album. I installed 3/4" PVC along the frame and I use it to get my Camera and WiFi cat5 cables and a Romex 110VAC cable (inverter), from the rear of the TT to the front storage compartment. Keeps the cables out of the weather.

Saw someone use the suction cup mount for their GoPro and then connect via WiFi with the app on their smart phone. Prolly what I'll do since I have it.

Did your unit come pre wired from factory for a camera? If it did there is a backing board in the wall of camper.

Don't mean to hijack this thread, but what's the best camera setup? I'm leaning toward the Garmin RV760 LMT because I also like what I read about the features of the RV specific GPS. Love the color 7" screen for my old eyes ad the picture clarity seems to be good. It lists a 45' wireless range...it that really correct? I have a 27" TT so I guess the wireless should work.
What do you all think and what do you use? Is it worth the $320.00?

Happy RVing,
Jeff

Just my two cents but I did a lot of research before buying a backup camera for my Trailer.

I wanted one to use going down the road as well as backing up.

I read where a lot of people were not satisfied with the wireless camera.

It would have been easier to install the wireless for sure! But I went with the wired one and I could not be happier with it.

This is the one I purchased and I would recommend it.

Curious... Where did you run your wires?

X2 on where did you run your wires?
Also, was the wireless troubles on the longer TTs and 5ers? I'm, only 27' so maybe the shorter signal distance would work well. Whatdaya think?

Happy RVing,
Jeff
