Rear View Camera?

We just got our 2016 Jayco Eagle fifth wheel. It is prewired for a rear view camera. Does anyone have a suggestion for what model we should buy and have installed?
Thanks.

I love the Garmin RV 760 and BC 20 camera that JAYCO used in 2015. We bought the option and it has worked flawlessly.

Mine has the Voyager WVCMS130AP camera. My dealer ordered it as an option. I think it works well. First rear view camera I have ever had.

I've never had a rearview camera on my TT, but we just upgraded to a longer 5'er. What's the primary use of the camera? For backing in? Or for monitoring traffic behind you?

I use it as a monitor. Rarely look at while backing.

Same as Grumpy, monitoring. I can also keep an eye the bicycles on the hitch rack while traveling.

We have the Voyager wireless on our 2015 Eagle HT. I like it when on the hwy as well as an extra aid while backing. It does not use the prewired circuit, but works off the clearance light circuit. Of course you have to drive with the clearance lights on even in daylight, but that is just an added safety to me.

Thanks for the input, everyone. I called Jayco. They said their camera is the Voyager, but that it is black and white only. Think I will buy from a dealer rather than from Jayco but definitely plan to get one.

Voyager color camera

The Voyager camera we have is color and it came from our local dealer. You can get either.
