The pre-wiring is likely just for power, so you'll need the wireless system in order to be able to have the monitor in the tow vehicle without having to run extra cables from the camper to the vehicle.
I'd recommend getting the "Observation" camera, since it helps when driving, for checking clearance, rather than just when backing into a site.
Wireless High-Speed Observation System. (For high-speed observation and backup use) - FURRION
It's about $100 more than the back-up only camera.
I got mine from an EBay seller, for about $100 less than buying direct.
I bought from General RV Center's EBay store and had no issues: -
Furrion Wireless Observation System Backup Monitor Camera Long Range FOS48TA BL | eBay
There are a few sellers selling for $50 less, but of course I have no idea if the other sellers are any good.
Make sure to get the FOS48TA if you want the observation/rear-view ability, and also if you need longer range (the other model loses signal on anything much longer than a small popup)
I wouldn't be without mine now, and have it on all the time while towing the 5th wheel (makes lane changes much easier, since I know 100% if I'm clear of that vehicle in the other lane)
