Backup cameras

Hi gang! We will b picking up our 2012 33rlds in a
couple of months and I'm starting to research backup
Cameras so I can install one on the rear of the trailer.
I was thinking of wireless if there r decent products out
there that will have a clear display for the length of the combined unit.
I will go wired if I have to but also wanting to keep the cost
Down. Any input would be appreciated. I have a camera on
the truck for hooking up but I think it would b helpful to see
the rear of the trailer. Thanks

There is a product called I-Ball, that is a magnet camera and a monitor that plus into the lighter plug in your truck. I bought a refurbuished unit. Works well.

I just got done installing a wired camera on my new 5er, I used cabcam camera system, We have sold and installed over a hundred of them too farmers for there equipment.I went with the wired one because the wireless ones only work when the antennas can see each other.(line of site).Plus they don't have the clarity of the wired ones.

Here is the wired system I am looking at for my TT when it comes in. It has good reviews and seems to be a complete system with quick disconnects and everything.

Rearview Safety Camera Sytems

From my research it seems like a wired system is the way to go. I have read a lot of bad reviews of wireless systems being sketchy and poor picture quality.

This is the set I have on my truck and trailer. It's a nice, quality product that does a really good job. I purchased the two camera set but it looks like maybe Costco only has the one camera system left. They had the best price I could find.

If you want to know more, PM me and I will provide additional info.

Does the iball camera work in low light? Can you use it on the back of the trailer in the dark?

I installed a rearview camera on my Jay Feather and I wouldn't want to be without it. Here's a link to my installation.

I hardwired from the camera on the rear of the trailer to the transmitter in a forward storage compartment. I do occasionally get interference that would be solved by a totally hardwired solution, but I'm happy with my setup and it sure takes the worry out of lane changes.
