      On our last Raptor toyhauler that we had it came with a Garmin GPS with a rear camera and the picture showed on the GPS screen. It worked really well and was super clear. Only thing you had to leave the power switch on for the 5th wheel to get the camera to work.
      Can't tell you the cost as it came with it when we ordered the 5th wheel.

      I added one on my truck for backing up to my boat. It is wireless so no wires to run and seems to work well for what I use it for. My camera is on my license plate on the back and just have to plug the unit into the cigarette lighter. This sells for less than a hundred dollars online. I am guessing you could mount the camera somewhere else than the license plate. I believe mine is a whistler.

      That's a shitshow for which the repayment is made in diamonds only.

      I can explain it for you, but I can’t understand it for you.

      Bought a couple of wireless Peak camera's back about 8 or 9 years ago and they still work fine. Cost about $80 each back then. I mounted one on the inside of my flip up pickup topper door and just raise the door to see how the bumper and hitch line up. Put the other one on the inside of my flip up rear window on the old suburban and it works the same. One thing I will say about Peak is that they have awesome customer service. Don't know what the original warranty was but a couple of years after I bought them one of the camera's got moisture inside the lens and it fogged up and dust got in so you couldn't see the image any more. I called the company to see if I could buy a replacement camera because you couldn't open the lens to clean it without destroying the housing and the guy who answered the phone just asked me what model I had and said he would ship a new one no charge. Just about dropped the phone. Well about a week ago I noticed that the camera on the pickup topper window had fallen off and got all scratched up rolling around in the pickup box so I called the company again and same thing. The guy put one in the mail and I had it in 3 or 4 days no charge! Didn't even think they would still have parts for a unit that old. Best customer service experiences I've ever had.

      I have been looking at the Furrion, good reviews, I am not sure about the 4.3 inch screen being to small with the camera at the top of the camper by the clearance lights, would I clearly see the boat hitch. and a bigger screen gets kinda spendy. hell the 4 inch is over $400, and that is what brought me here.
