We have a RVC camera on the rear of our cargo trailer and a RVC camera on the rear of our Sunseeker 2500TS. The cargo trailer camera is 3 yrs old. Both cameras have the sun visor and both work equally well. There is a slot between the camera and the shield which may actually negate the swirling in the area of the camera. I have only once cleaned a lens other than doing a wash job. I believe the visor protects the lens from sun and weather. The only reason I can see for leaving the visor off your rig is to increase the distance the camera can see to the rear.
Both of the above cameras are tipped down to see within 6 ft. of the back end. But they can still see quite far to the rear for traffic even with the visors. Both the camera tilt and the visor tilt are independently adjustable with the same mounting screws being 3 on each side. Snug the screws so there is enough friction to hold the camera and visor. Have someone viewing the monitor to tell you when the view is the best and the visor is not visible. Then tighten the screws.
