    Having now got my twin camera system I now have to figure out ow to put it on/in the MH. How have others fixed the camers to the rear of the van? Twin camera fixed to the top . It looks like my Autocruise Starfire has a shaped moulded section up there. It may look pretty (perhaps) but I don't think there's a flat bit where I need it. Camera system supplier suggested Sikaflex. Any pictures appreciated.

    I used two stainless steel self tappers and bedded it onto that non setting mastic stuff, so far so good.

    Work on the principle that if, or when, it goes faulty the replacement may not have mounting holes in the same place. My method: drill the hole for the wiring big enough to take a plastic sleeve. Mount the camera on the sleeve, feed the wire through it, then Sikaflex the assembly onto your motorhome. That way, no matter what sort of attachment comes with a replacement camera you will only have one hole in your motorhome.
