Haloview camera system

I have a Cherokee 294GEBG that has corrugated siding. I am looking at getting the haloview camera system with the side view cameras. I知 wondering if the Sideview cameras will fit the corrugated siding without issues? I was concerned about having gaps.

Thanks,
Tim

I don't know the answer to your question but will be very interested to see the results. I have a Windjammer 3008W that is two feet shorter and knowing the Haloview wireless will connect from the back of your bumper pull trailer will help me decide what to do on my bumper pull. 50+ feet from the camera on the back through the trailer structure and into the cab of the truck is a fair distance and I have not been able to find reviews that include how well that works. It is actually a similar distance from the back wall of the trailer to the cab as a 40' fifth wheel.

By the way, I looked at the floor plan - that is one gorgeous trailer!

I was looking at my trailer for side cameras
ended up deciding mirrors were good enough I could see down the sides of the trailer real good, and blindspot was on the truck
I also was more comfortable looking at mirrors


mine non halo rear camera on 25ft box......... breaks up at 65 mph speed while using it for observation mode


halo view camera can have a extension antenna
if your signal is bad look at adding the extension

I am thinking I need the Range Dominator with a 49' cable so I can wind through from below the back window to get the transmitter all the way to the front of the trailer. I am looking primarily for a view to the rear while driving rather than a downward view showing where the trailer bumper is.

I have a 2020 Wolf Pup16FQ that I pull with a 2018 Honda Pilot. Trailer is 21 ft. from bumper to hitch. I installed the Haloview MC10 and had problems with the picture skipping and delaying. I called Haloview and they recommended that I add their antenna- which I did. Now it works great. Best $13 I ever spent! I highly recommend it.

i have Haloview system on my 30" 5th wheel. I use the antenna extender and have it secured on the roof. Monitoring view at 70 is clear as can be.

As far as answering your question about side camera on your unit. Look at the marker light that you will replace with it. the profile up and down is almost identical to a standard side light. the camera adds length to the unit, not height.

I did get them installed extremely easy to install. Did about 700 mile round trip with them they worked great. They did lose signal once or twice but I had the screen laying on the center console. I get put a bulletpoint mount in my truck for it so I値l see how it works next week. I値l be drive from Houston area to Hot Spring, AR.

Looks great, interested how the trip goes now that it’s mounted. Did you notice much lag between the camera view and vehicles passing? I appreciate your feedback!

I didn’t not notice lag while using. If there is any it is minor.

How do you like your Bulletpoint mount system? I think I need something like that for my Halo, TPMS and phones.

i am not the person you responded to but I recently bought a Bulletpoint mount for my Ram 2500 and really like it. I bought the two ball mount and used it to mount my phone and a Garmin RV795. Not the cheapest but well worth the price to me.

Thanks. Yes, definitely not cheap.

I think this is an example of getting what you pay for. I have been looking for mounts on the cheap since the fall of 2002 and finally last summer bought exactly what I wanted instead of a failed compromise. This won't fall off the windshield or slide off the dash and do not take up a cupholder. Plus it puts the screens just where I want them. I am pretty tall so that is rather a big deal for me. I am really happy with mine.

Just wanted to throw my experience in with Haloview.
I have the RD10 which is labeled as "Haloview Wireless Backup Camera Rearview Observation Mirror Dashcam"

I purchased this one because I didn't want the extra video screen and this is a "rearview mirror" that attaches to your current rearview mirror. I have the X-Lite 261BHXL that is prewired. Problem is I wanted to use it as the rearview mirror for the trailer and didn't really want to run with my lights on during the day. Also, this model has a transmitter that is made to attach to the front of the trailer so that it is closer to the vehicle and you get a better signal. Halowview intends for you to run the wire from the camera mount up the wall to the roof and then across the roof to the front of the trailer where you should attach the transmitter.

I like to make things look as stock as possible so I didn't want the visible wire. So i ended up fishing the wire down the back wall of the trailer and ran it under the trailer in one of those plastic split loom wire wraps to protect the cable from road debris. Also, while I could have plugged power into the camera at the prewired location like intended since I was running the transmitter to the tongue of the trailer I just put a switch on the tongue and wired directly to the battery.

First trip with it I towed 500 miles one direction and it worked great. I used it for 3 trips last summer and love it so far. Best part is that the trailer with the bumper allows me to keep the camera angled up so I can see further back while traveling and then when I stop to check in at the campground I've got my son trained to stand on the bumper and tilt the camera down so I can see the back of the trailer for backing into the campsite.

I recommend the Haloview rearview mirror mount for the monitor. Gets the monitor up and out of the way, and you instinctively glance at rear view mirror anyway when you look back. Rear view mirror view is obstructed by front of trailer anyway.


Wires are hidden along edge of headliner and A-post of windshield. I take monitor down after I unhook and leave wiring in place.

I have the Haloview BT7 with the side cameras but our trailer is fiberglass. It was a little tight avoiding conflict with the passthrough doors but enough wiggle room in the wire hole that there was no real problem with installation. The side cameras are little bigger than the side markers that came on the trailer but mostly in length.

Like it very much, especially since I don't have tow mirrors on my truck.

I use the screen layout of, rear, full width on top and the sides, splitting the bottom half. Very intuitive.

I have to have the antennae attacked but mine works fine with them folded down.
