Looking for a wireless backup Monitor

I have a 1998 Georgetown 340, I'm looking to put in a wireless backup monitor. I don't know what to get and I don't want it to cost an arm and a leg.

Since my rig didn't come with one, is it possible that it was hardwired to put one in as an option? This way I could get a wired version instead of wireless.

Thanks John

Is this for your RIG for backing up into sites? or to backup your truck and hook up the hitch? If you want this in the back of your RV the problem with going wireless is they are limited in range usually like 10 feet. etc.

$150 dollars at Wal-mart will probably fix you right up.

Here is the forum where I took screenshots and videos (post #34) with it. Many people are using it. I can put it in the back of my travel trailer and put the monitor in the cab of my truck and have no problems with a 45-50 foot range.

It's a lot of reading, but there are all kind of uses for it...along with other modifications members have done with theirs, like hardwiring the camera into the RV's DC power supply.

Made a wireless backup camera system cheaply

wmtire- That's a great ideal, but I need one waterproof. I don't have the rear window on the motorhome and would like to do a rooftop mounted camera.

I was thinking of this on eBay:
7" LCD motorhome Rearview Monitor 12V CCD Wireless Backup Camera Bus | eBay

I have no experience in this department and I just bought this motorhome. I would like all opinions.
Thank you, John
