    Hi Guys,

    Does anyone know where I can get a reasonably priced reversing camera system supplied and fitted? We had ours fixed when we were up at the motorhome medics but it seems to have given up totally. We are in the south west if anyone knows somewhere local (ish).

    Ta very much,

    Mark.

    Hi Mark

    Can only suggest Vanbitz at Taunton, not the cheapest by the looks of it, but if you factor in the cost of traveling elsewhere it may not be so bad.
    I can vouch for the quality of their products, workmanship and after sales service.

    HTH

    Hi Mark,
    I just bought and fitted a splitter system to my 5er from this guy, on ebay,, around the £170, not the cheapest but one of the clearest pictures I have ever seen..

    Visit seller's Shop:
    Reversingcamerasuk

    He is very helpful,, hope this helps..

    Not tried this particular system but I have fitted several wireless camera systems over the last 7 years for customers and every one has proved to be rubbish. The latest was just last week and again it was cr@p, as soon as the engine was fired up the picture disappeared into a blizzard of interference.

    Go for a quality wired system from a known manufacturer and you won't be disappointed.

    Be very careful which sort you go for.

    I have seen some on here advocating the type below.

    On my first weekend away, I was parked in a tight space, you know the sort, big jag pulls in behind so you cant get out. I therefore utilised the mentioned type of reversing camera. It let me down big time at a critical moment. It done its normal trick of dissapearing out of sight after waving etc. It then allowed me to reverse back in to a black pole catching the rear of my van, its ok though the reversing camera then put its digits to its mouth and jumped up and down.
    So be careful. with what you choose, mine cost an absoloute fortune to run. :thumb:hardhathardhathardhathardhathardhathardhathardhathardhathardhathardhat

    reversing camera

    i have a great reversing camera and it's extremely cheap, it's called mrs bevo,
    whenever i'm going to reverse she jumps out and guides me back,
    she can also see impending obstructions, such as children running by and approaching traffic.
    works for me.

    Yeah, I tried that, but Jan had a hell of a time running at 50mph forwards .. :Rofl1::Rofl1:

    Rear view cams are great for watching a trailer .. I wouldn't depend on it reversing.. :Doh:

    REversing

    Hi

    ""Rear view cams are great for watching a trailer .. I wouldn't depend on it reversing"".

    Neither would I. But a "useful tool" all the same. Especially when avoiding the garage when parking up!!!. (or not running over wardens on CC sites!!)
