    Hi - I saw one of these being fitted to a Ducato PVC a week or two ago ... but I can't find any links / cost.

    It imitates a rear view mirror by showing the traffic behind but can look down too for reversing.

    Quite common I think. I'd like one too but so far mirrors have served me well.
    PS plenty on ebay or your local MH dealer

    Thanks - I did look on ebay, but must have used poor search criteria as I didn't find any. Can you post a link or two? I looked on my local dealers site but they do not list accessories. I also looked on Vanbitz and couldn't see one there either. :(

    Thanks - this one came up this time. The one I saw replaced the rear stop light, but this will do for now as it gives me some idea of the price.

    Has anyone seen the one that is built into a replacement high level brake light?

    This looks identical to the one I had fitted when I bought my van. I had no rear-view mirror, but they bonded a bracket to the windscreen. It switches automatically to close view when I select Reverse gear. I can also switch manually between the two views. The close view camera is set so I can JUST see the two ends of my towbar, and also the towball, so I can reverse up to something and stop 1cm short!. There is about a 50cm "blind spot" between the two views. Mine was dealer fitted. I can't imagine how I would have dealt with installing all the cabling.
