    Hi, has anybody any knowledge of the above - or any other reversing camera which fits onto the rear view mirror please?

    The new motorhome is longer than the old one and I think a reversing camera, especially one which stays on whilst you are driving so you can see what is behind you is a good idea.

    Any comments or opinions would be appreciated.

    They come as standard on the top of the range Swift Models,when i got my Bessacarr it came with revering/Sat nav/and everything else but Small and no reverse image.The first thing i did was purchase a 7 in Monitor from vision also altered the wiring and fitted a 3 way switch on the dash so i could put it on while on the move

    I like the idea of having it on when on the road, it is sometimes very important to see who is behind you and the idea of just looking in the mirror, as you would in a car, would be great.

    Can you have them rigged to do this automatically, or do you have to have them adapted?

    I have one fitted in my dodge pick up the screen is part of the rear view mirror and is about 3", when you select reverse it automatically comes on or you can manually select it. It is also wired up to the dvd player in the back so you can watch movies whilst waiting for her to do the shopping :Rofl1:

    I had a separate camera on the back of the 5th wheel and the display was part of the head unit and again when reverse was selected this would come on so I could see how many trees and children I was running over when backing onto a pitch - very handy

    Hi everybody, We have ordered the camera etc, spoken to Marquis Northampton who will be fitting it for us and everything is sorted.

    Thanks so much for your advice, we are really looking forward to picking up the new motorhome, with all the extra bits and pieces!
