I think I just need to remove the rear camera from either RD7 or RD7R. Then use a Furrion adapter plate to attach the camera to my pre-wired Furrion back up camera mount. Basically trash whatever backup camera mount they send me.
I think I need a circle metal mounting plate for the door camera and a Furrion adapter to attach the rear backup camera. I've emailed Haloview to make sure I order all the 'accessories' I'll need to do the install.
And let the rest of us know what you find out?!
I'm trying to envision how the camera over the door would work out - why would I want that, since I can look out the window. I expect it would be to have a motion activated 720p video clip of the person breaking in while I'm gone? I hope there is a blinking red light when the camera starts recording to scare off the miscreants, cause I doubt that video clip will be helpful after the fact. At least that is what I hear from the Ring Doorbell users who have 1080p video clips of porch pirates.
I'm not trying to be a Debbie Downer, just thinking out loud and want to hear what others think, or what experience they may have had. I did some reading on the Haloview site and also checked Amazon for popular camera solutions. For example, this system has two camera inputs, records at a higher resolution and costs under $130.00.

With a rig that is almost 26' in length, do I really need side view cameras? IDK and hoping somebody can share their experience.
