Question Rear view camera with monitor?

I'm looking at ordering a GTS 2800/1 and the new brochures for Forester says it has "rear view camera with monitor" while the Sunseeker just says "rear view camera". Does anyone know what this means. I drove a Sunseeker recently and the cameras all appear on the dash radio screen. Do I assume that the Forester is the same? Can anyone confirm this? Although, I really liked last years separate monitor in place of the rearview mirror. Anyone know if the cameras are hardwired or wireless? Thanks!

I also have a 2016 2801. Rear and sideview cameras are connected to a video screen in place of rearview mirror. I've seen this for several years in FR class C's. A much bigger improvement over the video screen incorporated in the radio screen. They do change things year to year so checking with factory rep would be the way to confirm. Seeing a 2017 one way doesn't mean that's what you will get. They make running changes all the time.

Ditto to both posts above. Same setup on our 2016 22' class C. There is a touch switch to keep the rear camera on while driving so you can see your toad, if you like. The RV center that installed our toad hitch told me about that feature this week. I would never had known.

Wish they would add the option to have an inside camera. That way you could see if someone is moving around without looking back.

All the Jenson radios in the cab allow you to connect a camera. . I plan on getting one so I can see the coach and who is moving around.

Not a camera but I mounted a wide angle mirror for that purpose. Mine is a water skiing mirror for a boat. Low tech but works well. .
