Question Need back-up camera info for Columbus 320

We just ordered a Columbus 320 and are contemplating getting a back up camera installed at the factory. My dealer had very little info.
Does anyone know what brand Palamino puts in? What type of camera? Size of monitor? Color or B&W? Do you get a clear picture on a 40' wireless system?
Any info would be appreciated.
Thanks

never heard of a factory-installed backup camera system, on a 5th wheel.
is this a new option?
haven't seen it on the Columbus website.

As it's a Palomino option, you may have better luck asking in the Palomino forum.

I think there is an option. I found this thread that mentions it. Chris Columbus says its a Voyager. The palomino website is down right now so not able to check more.

Columbus Questions

Good luck with the rest of your question on it.

[I moved the thread to the Palomino subforum.]

I was told by my dealer rep that the system is a Voyager WVOS511. I will know more today when I pick up my new 32RS with it installed.

I am spending all too much time on this web site:

Backup Camera System | Wireless Back Up Camera

What an awesome selection. No, I can not recommend them (YET) as I have not decided on which one to buy.

The feedback on our optional backup camera has all been positive. Just another feature Columbus now offers. It can be added after market also. We are using a higher end one .

DW wants the backup camera and audio alert for her Buick.
This is going to be an expensive order...

Here is a link to a Trailer Life article about the back-up camera system that is now an option on Columbus:
