Rear view Camera

First, as a new owner of our first travel trailer, a Jayco 232, I am impressed with the info one can find here and the things I learned from the daily newsletter. A really great tool for a newbie.

As a new owner, I have no clue as to what camera can be mounted on the back of the trailer. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks.

Welcome from Georgia. It's not what I have but everyone that has the furrion says it works well. My brother just purchased one off ebay for $299.00 I think there around $359 to $400 other places. I seen one on facebook in Atlanta for $195.00

I did a little research online before buying one and bought the furrion wireless observation camera, from what I read online it has better signal acquisition than their backup camera version. 2 reasons why I went with the furrion is that the mount plate and wiring was already there and I didn't want a big monitor/screen in the way on my dash or stuck to my windshield. I have used the camera on 2 different bumper pull trailers, a 26' wood frame/ aluminum siding and a 37' aluminum frame / fiberglass sided. The camera drops its "frame rate" pretty bad at times and with the aluminum trailer would lose connection completely pretty often, with the fiberglass I would still get drop in "frame rate" but it rarely lost connection. Daytime it works ok but at night any light source at all hitting the camera completely washes out the image on the monitor. For instance when backing up at night when I hit the brakes the light from the tail lights washes out the image on the monitor and I have to release the brake pedal to see again.

I agree with all of the above. I donít know if there is anything better out there, but even trying to justify $200 for this thing seems like a stretch. The image quality seems akin to what I see on my childís eight year old Leapfrog tablet.
