Steve, what I used was a Bracketron Universal ProMount GWM-702-BL. Here is a link to it:

Universal ProMount | Bracketron

They sell these at many places, and you can click on the where to buy button at the link above. I bought mine at the local Pilot Travel Center for $20.

Here are some pics I took awhile ago, just sticking it on my trucks window to show everyone. I showed it with the camera hanging down, as it seems this to be more sturdy with the weight of the camera hanging...............but you can do it with the camera up, which is how I did it to make the video in another post. If you are not going to be recording, and do mount the camera down, just turn the monitor upside down to correct the orientation.

There's all kind of ways to do it. I mounted it where the camera does NOT touch the window in any way.

The jaws of the mount are foam lined, and you push them together as tight as you want, remembering they are plastic and can break though. You will push a button to release the jaws when you want to remove the camera (or anything else you place in it)

In my case the "accessory outlet" on my Winegard TV antennae amplifier was less than 10 feet from my back window. I just plugged my camera into that outlet with my old iPhone charger setup and it works great!
Good deal, Barry. I take it you have this system.

Yes, I could no longer resist the desire to spend those $$$, and it does seem like a really good deal compared to what they sell at Camping World. Thanks for the discovery!

This has been added to my list of things to buy.

Most of the RV style wireless systems have limited range, this doesn't appear have that problem.

Great find! System works great and I was able to mount the wall bracket on my back window frame so install for use is really easy. Also, GE has a rechargeable battery pack for the camera for $20. Ordered mine today. http://www.jascoproducts.com/product...k-141p1214.htm

Pics of how I installed the camera. I used the mounting bracket that came with it and mounted directly to my rear window frame.

Excellent idea.

Glad to hear more positive reports of the system.

Great find for $115! Add $20 for the rechargeable battery pack that I ordered and you still paid less than I did just for the system at Walmart!
