My opinion, wired is the only way to go. Had a wireless one with "300 foot range." Right! Was totally useless- intermittent, would cut out, totally frustrating. Wiring a system is not that difficult.

I agree that the wired option is the most reliable. You do it once and then it's done. This way you don't have to worry about it. That's the route that I took.

For what it is worth we ordered one from Jayco with our new unit and we still can't get it to work. It is a poor quality product. I would strongly suggest an after market one. By the way it is a wireless unit.

Rearview safety has the best reviewed wireless one I can find for a lot less than the voyager. I might give it a gamble. I'm having trouble finding someone that can install a wired one and I really have no clue how to do it.

I had one with the extended range. Put it on the back of my 31 ft designer to see the RZR behind the fiver. On our trip to Az it only worked half the time . First thing I did when I got to my destination was hard wire it in . Worked great it is now on our Pinnacle hardwired in and still working great . It is really not that hard to hard wire one in .

I use the wireless camera from Furrion. Not perfect, but not to bad.

Camera System

Called yesterday, camper is here early so I need to figure out this camera stuff. Wireless one I wanted is backordered. So I'm pondering wired. I'm reasonable handy given good directions. I love youtube video's and did my own pergo floor and many other projects watching video's as I went. I can't seem to find a video with wireless camera installation on a camper. so my question is where do you go with the wire? Up over the roof and how do you hide and secure it or down and under the camper and again how do you hide and secure it? Thanks for any help. Eyeballing a rearview safety camera with trailer quick disconnect. Just not sure where to go with the wires.

Don't get to exercised over not having the camera. If you have a spotter the camera is just a nice addition, not a necessity.
The majority of trailers under tow do not have them.
