    i have just replaced the old black and white system that was fitted when i got my van. the monitor was like an old portable tv set ! i paid about £40 for a complete colour set up [the screen now is the size of a 7inch sat nav] off ebay. it works perfect and you can set it on a permanant rear view or only when reverse is engaged. with my van being lhd, i have also fitted a small internal camera on the pass side to eliminate the blind spot that you sometimes get at certain junctions. so at the touch of a button i can see that view on the same screen as well . the whole set up cost under £50. regards garry

    Welcome

    :welcome:

    Sorry, I know nothing about towing with a motorhome but plenty on here do so with a little patience you will get some advice.

    as my original system was a wired one i replaced it with the same [ i simply taped the new cable to the old and pulled it through]. the one i got is on ebay at the moment and it is item no 150782620784 the seller is savezone2011 .the fact that they have sold over 900 of them speaks for itself i reckon . hope this helps garry.
