Yes I have had dealings with them the first camera I got lasted about a month the second one that I got didn't last that long. End up turning them into the Better Business Bureau can get any satisfaction from them

I have used Tadi Brothers before with the same idea that the price is right. Just remember you get what you pay for. I had installed on a 30' 5er and reception was spotty and constantly faded in and out. We have since got rid of the 5er and now have a Sabre with pre-wire for Furrion. Going to look into their camera as to me the extra $200 isn't worth the aggravation. IMOP

I've got the Furrion, came installed on my new 30" Wildcat. Picture fades out some, resolution is not great. Not an option I would pay extra for. I've been backing trailers for forty some years without one. I'm just sayin'...

I purchased a wireless camera and monitor system from tadibrothers more than a year ago. Since it is a trailer application I wanted wireless, as to not add another hook up/disconnect cable. Since the trailer is relatively short (25' including tongue and rear bumper) our reception is crystal clear, the camera has been no problem at all. After reading the comments above, I am thinking I might have been a lucky exception. But just figured I would give some feedback since tadibrothers was mentioned.

I suspect most wireless are going to have issues unless it is a short distance. I personally not looking for backup visibility only want to see the 12' alumn boat I pull back there.

I have the Furrion system on my new TT the only down side is the monitor screen is to small to really see things only(4") other than that works fine and its on a 35 ft TT. They do not offer any larger screen either so I'd save my money and not buy one. Only reason I got mine it was part of the deal when I bought the new TT. Later RJD

the Furion camera system

I have been looking for one of these for my new Flagstaff 831RESS, but have been turned off due to cost. If you still have it I might be interested. Please contact me either way at JobeckA1@earthlink.net as I have a few questions.

Does it have the ability to view behind you when not in reverse? Also is the price asking shipped or is that additional? Zip 76009.

Let me enlighten everyone on the Furrion camera systems. There are TWO different ones. The standard Forest River one (the one that came with my 2016 Wildcat) is the one mentioned many times in this thread. It has a 12 in the model number and is referred to as a backup camera. It's a fair backup camera but a horrible moving observation cam system. Since FR wires them for full time hot, not just on for backing, you may think they would be a good pseudo rear view mirror to monitor rear traffic while towing. Not so! You need the Furrion model with 48 in the model number. It's their "Observation Camera". Fits the same FR mounts but uses a better cam and better monitor. It cost a $100 more but the resolution and performance is worth it. It's an easy 5 min swap to change a 12 for a 48. I did the switch and am very glad. Check out Furrion.com
