Back up camera ready?

Our new trailer is "back up camera ready". The tech said everything is already wired and ready to go. I asked home much the camera system was and thought I might do it. Until our salesman said it was $700. Has anyone successfully used a wireless camera system on their rig? I would need one with a pretty good range. The monitor would be about 50' away from the camera. Thanks.

I assume you have the standard furion preps. Very easy install. I hate Walmart but on line they had the best price when I did mine. Think it was about 1o minutes and 1/2 of the 700$ you were told. I believe there a few different models. if im not mistaken one has a little better range and the call it an observations model/ the less expensive one they call back up only?

Thanks Kimber45. That is what I needed to know. I found some on Amazon for about $370.

Has anyone used the observation model on a 40ft+ rig. My 5ver is 43ft. I watched a couple of videos on it but they were all on 30-34 rigs and only getting 2 bars of signal at speed. Kinda worried about losing signal at highway speeds. Which is when I am wanting to use the unit. Thanks.

I just install a furrion observation camera on my 230bhxl... It took less than 10 minutes to install. The best part is the deal I got. I bought it brand new for $180. I checked online and they usually go for almost $400! They had two I should have bought the other one too but I'm not a hoarder. Either way I'm happy with it, sure the monitor is small but it does its job by letting me see the back of my TT when I'm on the road and when backing up to the campsite.

at the Goshen Rally, I had one installed on my small fiver. We were well over 100 ft from camera to the base unit and it worked FINE. Just remember, you have to turn on your trailer lights to make it work
