Hello Fairstreamers (Fellow airstreamers),
Two trends in my life:
*Traveling (more of it) since retirement looms (8 months)
*I get a little older every day, and the older I get the better I think
I was (and is)
* The wife is not as admiring of my manly driving skills as when we were courting.
* The total length of my rig is 43.5 feet, as long as some buses.
So how to make traveling safer?
Here is my idea:
Install a backup camera on the trailer (wireless)
Install a backup camera on the TV license plate (wireless)
Install a clip on mirror display on the inside mirror.
Wire so both cameras are always on.
Switch between views, so can use
* license plate cam for hitching
* trailer cam for highway use (to see vehicles behind trailer)
Clip-on feature prevents theft yet provides an ergonomically
easy to see monitor, since we are all used to glancing at the rear
view mirror, and there is no unsightly and risky monitor display on the dash.
Receiver for both will be buried under dash. Wiring will be inside pillars and headliner.
The models I am reviewing even have a microphone so I can hear when I
hit the picnic table.
How fun is that?
