    Would a Roadhawk two-way camera be an alternative to a reversing camera? We are rather surprised to find that reversing cameras or sensors are not a standard fitting on 7.44 metre MHs.

    l am not sure how l have the setup but forward face only. It records onto an sd card and is controlled via that l am not sure how you could do the set up. Is there not cheaper reversing cameras / sensors designed for the job?

    they arent standard fit on many motorhomes, never mind 7.44mtr ones......unless you look at american RVs then almost every one has one.

    Cant see how a roadhawk could work.....unless you have binocular/zoom vision to see the tiny screen in the rear window

    Bought a Roadhawk for my car and returned it as I was very disappointed with it.

    For a reversing camera I would recommend you have a look at http://www.parkingcameras.com/store/home.php.

    I bought a twin lens set up. One camera acts as a rear view when driving which is very useful, the other deals with reversing - delighted with it.:Smile:

    My set up has 3 cameras and room for 1 more it uses a vidio distribution box and a 7" screen that can be remote swiched to individual camers or split the view into 4 views at once

    11Meters didn't come with any

    For any reversing use it has to give the same mirrored image as a normal mirror would, not all camera/Screen set ups can swich back automaticly for forward views you do need proper set up

    Since Dave Newell fitted ours I haven't looked back! :Laughing:

    Seriously, though, an excellent job. Since having it fitted I realise how much just cannot be seen by mirrors alone. Acts as rear view mirror while driving and angles down when reversing so shows rear bumper in relation to surrounding area.

    I was of the impression a reversing camera was a standard fit across the AT range :Eek!:

    Yes. We have one fitted to the Tracker. That's why we were quite amazed that the Burstner Nexxo we were/are considering even has passenger airbag as an extra!!!:Eeek:
