    I am looking to fix a reversing camera to my mh and have been in touch with Dave Newell asking for advice:Smile: As I drive a N+B A class I was worried with the distance from driver to dashboard that seeing the screen might present problems but the young lady at Dave Newell says they have fitted 4.1" (Roadpro RV430)" monitors to A class motorhomes without any problems.

    I am sure she is right but I would appreciate comments from fellow "A" class motorhomers.

    Many thanks

    Norman

    Just been out to check it, 7 inch wide screen.

    I suppose it depends on location and view from the drivers seat.

    Dave N fitted a Camos system for me a few years ago in our Hymer A class. That too came from Roadpro.
    The monitor (no longer available) is slightly larger than the one you are looking at. It is a 4:3 format 5" screen but the visible area will be a bit less than 5" diagonal. It is perfectly large enough for easy viewing and I would have thought the option you are considering will be fine.
    By comparison, I have a Garmin Dēzl SatNav mounted at the same distance from me as the reversing monitor - one each side of the instrument binnacle. The SatNav too has a 5" diagonal screen (but is widescreen format) and both screens are easily seen.
