Most in "search" are a year old or more (and technology tends to move more rapidly) and none mention brand/model info.
Anybody done one lately ?

I got mine off EBay it is wireless don't remember the name. I mounted it to the fantastic fan got my power there and use a simple toggle switch attached thru the shroud on the fan. Simply turn on when ready to pull out and turn off when set up. Works better up high on my Scamp 5er than it did when mounted on the bumper. Herman

Allen when I had it on the rear bumper the reception was not very good. I guess the signal angle was blocked by the camper, gas bottles and metal toolbox plus the truck itself. After putting on roof signal is much better now, still a little interference on really rough roads. Herman

I have a rear view safety wired system. $200. Kind of a pain to install but works great. Very clear large screen.

Not very useful at night as headlights are so bright they wash out the screen. This is probably true of all cameras.

Try www.tmart.com Cheap stuff that works well. LED lights also super cheap. If it shows that it is in the US it ships real fast.

I installed 7" over the mirror monitor and wireless camera from ebay, around $80 total. Camera and transmitter are installed inside my 16" Scamp on the rear window using suction cup and connected to tail light wires for power. Works great, just turn on tail lights to look back.

By "rear window" I assume you mean farthest away from the tow vehicle ?
Which is exactly what I want to do..............for backing trailer.
Do you have a manufacturer or seller name by chance ?
There are so many and I hear about many that do not work very well in this configuration..........
Thanx for any

To connect camera and wireless transmitter to 12v I installed 4-way connector (any 2 pin connector will work, I just had spare 4 way trailer connectors) on the trailer AND on the towing vehicle, so I can quickly screw the camera to license plate of TV when hitching the trailer and then move the camera back to Scamp's rear window to see behing the trailer when driving or backing.

For power I used backup lights on the TV and taillights on the trailer.
