Orion monitor cameras

Another question I have concerning the Orion which I am considering purchasing. I read that the cab has a monitoring system for back-up and side view.
This sounds terrific to me. I was wondering where the side view cameras were located. It would really be great if they were located at the very front of the cab and low enough that there wouldn't be any blind spots. It would be nice if I could see a motorcycle or other small object along my side.
I have these questions because I have never seen one of these motorhomes in person, I would have to drive about 500 miles to see one.

I am going to make the assumption that they are using a similar if not the same camera system that is on my Coachmen Concord. There are two side cameras, they are mounted on the front fenders, they do a decent job of showing things down the sides, the rear camera is mounted up high on the rear of the coach. The side cameras come on automatically when you use your turn signal. I can take or leave them. I have been driving large vehicles for years and my mirrors work just fine. The Concord has a good set of mirrors and when adjusted there are no blind spots. One thing I would like to see would be the ability to turn the side camera on without having to use the turn signal.
