I have one on my 28ft TT. I wired it so its on all the time so I can see behind me going down the road. I didn't get the most expensive one on the market. just something to help see behind me.

Would also like to see what others have done! Seems like most of them i see are super spendy for what they are..

I may go look on ebay and amazon to see what they got, monitors seem super cheap..

EDIT: Found this one on amazon HERE Pyle has been around for a long time and seem decent, and not too bad on the price, would want to get another cable though and do a discount at the hitch/tongue and probably just mount it on the bottom of the trailer, Would probably spend more time fishing and getting the cable in the truck than any other part, put that on my wishlist for now

Found another one from Pyle that looks nice: HERE

there are a number of current threads discussing back up cameras.

I just got a wireless camera and used the camper battery to power the camera and put in a switch to turn the camera on and off on the battery box

i did try this with my Samsung II which has a bigger screen than the Iphone and the picture was pretty small. not like a dedicated LCD screen that would be easier to see.

Thought you can only Wifi the gopro to your phone, and then there is that lagg..

I have thought about using a gopro and a HDMI or 3.5mm cable to the cab though..

Costco, wireless baby monitor about $100. Works great on my 30 footer. For power I wired in a cigarette plug female end into 12 volt source. I then plug small inverter into that and camera into inverter. Color, sound and infrared. For the monitor I plug it into my 110 built in inverter, having said all that about power. Depending on the distance your driving both ends have battery backup which does last for some time. I mounted my camera inside my bunkhouse on the back window.
