I have a unmounted Voyager camera. I will try mounting it inside on the rear window and get back to you. Terry

Thanks Terry!
As I mentioned earlier I'm thinking of mounting the camera on the top arm of my bike rack. That would put it about the same height as the bottom of the back window. So if you could give me an idea how the camera prospective is from that angle that would we great

Thanks

Doug

We installed the Garmin RV 760LMT that has wireless backup on our 23' Flying Cloud. The back up camera was installed right above the rear window and works seamlessly with the GPS in the cab. So far it's been great. Not that crazy about their trip planning tool (Base Camp) - not very intuitive...

I love the iBall camera because it is idiotproof and cheap ($150) and no, I am in no way connected to the company that markets this product. The camera had a magnet that secures to the underside of the AS bumper where the rear storage is. The display plugs into your cigarette lighter and that's it. No wires, no installation! My only complaint is that the display is a little small but you can get used to it. I keep it in my TV until I need it.

Realize this an older thread. How did you wire the camera? I do not have a back up light on my 2011 Safari 23 to properly wire it to.

I was considering going with the Garmin solution, and while researching it I think some people ran the cable from the camera to the transmitter under the AS, and powered the transmitter off the battery in the front. They used cable ties or something similar wherever they could from to hold the cable in place.

I had the latest Voyager digital wireless installed a couple weeks ago at Camping World & it performs flawlessly, highly recommend the Voyager Camera.

Do you know how they ran the wire and powered the Garmin camera on the 23?

I did not want to drill a hole in the end cap, so I mounted on a section of aluminum angle, and attached with double sided tape with small self tamping screw in the window drain channel.

ran the wire down the side of the window and connects to the license plate light wire.

works well for us. certainly mounting on the end cap and running the wire to the center clearance light is a cleaner install, but it does involve drilling holes.

Wired rear view video camera on a Bambi 19'

Bought this camera from Amazon:

http://www.amazon.com/Rear-View-Safe...+backup+camera

Tried a similar one from Tadibrothers, but after numerous problems sent it back for a refund.

I selected a wired camera because I didn't want to permanently mount the camera near the roof of the AS and had used one on a bumper mount on a previous AS. The camera and mount can be removed for storage. The camera is powered by the car (12V plug which is only powered when the ignition is on). The wires from the camera run under the trailer to the car and generally follow the gas and water lines up the curb side. The connection between the trailer and car is via a "quick disconnect" waterproof connection this is part of the camera/monitor kit.

We mounted the monitor using a cup holder mount:

I installed similar 3'years ago... Reliable... Good product. Cameras are marginal image quality but very robust and great IR illumination... You can't count the wrinkles in the bark of a tree, but you can see when you are about to hit it... Or adjust and miss.. 😎
