I installed mine last night (The #48 observation model). It seems to work ok. I wish the screen was a little larger. The camera pivots in the mounting base/bracket. Adjust it up a notch or two. I have not tried it on the road yet, but I could see a good way back in our yard and could still see the top of the bumper mounted spare tire, which would be enough of a reference while backing up. I think I pushed it all the way up and then angled it back down one notch.
If you remove the bracket you'll have four and not two holes from the mounting screws to deal with. The housing installed at the factory by FR has two lower and two upper mounting holes. Unless your on a ladder you'll not see the upper ones. The 4 holes are in a rectangle pattern, 1 -1/4" high and 5" side to side.
