Best backup camera

Good afternoon,
our 1997 Jayco Eagle (31ft; Ford SD 450 base) has no backup camera, so I'd like to add one.
There are tons of products and I was wondering who of you could recommend a decent package (camera, monitor, 170 degree angle, guidelines on monitor etc.). Ideally wireless if interferences aren't too big over the 31 ft. distance. Otherwise wired is ok too but I'm not an electrician :-)

Wireless will be a mess on a motorhome. Get the wired version. Really the only difference between wired and wireless is the RCA cable. You still need to wire electricity and a turn on switch (usually reverse light, but you can also have it always on) for a wireless camera.

Guidelines are nice, but not necessary. You want one that is meant for an RV though, that has a swivel bracket that you can mount up high and give a full view... to include branches.

Garmin GPS and Camera

My last TT I used a Garmin GPS with the matching reverse camera. It could have been a great wireless setup if the installers had brought the transmitter a little further forward... I had to cover 50 feet and get through the front wall of the TT and the cab of the truck so I had some signal issues. I would think in a 31ft Motorhome it would work very well and has the added benefit of performing two functions with one screen.
