RVS vs. Tadi Brothers Backup Camera

Looking for a backup camera solution to add to the trailer and the back of my van. I've got a Nissan NV3500 van that I recently added a rear bumper spare tire and it blocks the OEM camera. I've found two options that add a camera to the top break light (similar to the ones on Sprinter vans).

The RVS option seems quite a bit more expensive than the Tadi Brothers option but it also looks a little nicer. None the less. Does anyone here have a preference between the two.


Additionally I'd like to add a second wireless camera to the back of our trailer and it seems like that comes down to the monitor we get and if it supports multiple inputs or not.

I bought a Tadi Brothers dash monitor for my camera system last summer. I was just starting out on a cross country trip and had only gone about 400 miles when it broke; all I got were scrambled lines on my screen. In the middle of nowhere in WY there was nowhere to find a replacement without doing a special order. I ended up turning around ( simultaneously my captain seat pedestal swivel broke and I was spinning on the curves; temporary fix was a ton of heavy duct tape.) I ended up deciding to spend more money and buy a Voyager model. Tadi Bros. did send me a replacement after I had to mail them the defective one. I’m hesitant to use it now but will carry it in the rv as a backup.

Iíve been using this Tadi Brothers wireless unit for over 2 years without fail.

Only on the very rare occasions, typically in metropolitan areas, I will get intermittent video break up which is from nearby electronics that upset my wireless operation.

From reading their website, your wireless installation may need a repeater for longer distances.

I bought the RVS wired "rear view" camera system. I use only one camera but it does allow for three cameras. The power comes from a hot wire in the cab, so that I can turn the system on and off.
