Rear-facing camera

Has anyone found a good and not too pricy solution for a rear facing trailer camera to see what is on the road right behind you?

Rear-facing camera

Hi there. Not sure why the copied link isn't working (editing my post) but try searching in Google with the phrase "Airforums backup camera"

Lots of threads to peruse.

Good AND not too pricey can be a challenge but there is a wide range of solutions available to you that run the gamut of quality and price. You'll find the sweet spot intersection for yourself. If you have some specific definitions of what "good" and "no too pricey" mean to you, please let us know and I'm sure you'll get some more specific advice.

Personally, I went for good and pricey with the Voyager wireless camera, installed at the factory a couple years ago. Good luck!

I went with the Voyager wireless too and installed it myself through the middle running light with a rubber grommet. Works great. I bought two junky Chinese systems before biting the bullet and getting a good one. Don't waste your money on cheap. Buy the one SteveSueMac and I have right now!

The cheap versions will be analog devices and you will get a lot of interference on them. All the cameras use the 2.4 GHZ frequency, the same as your phone, garage door openers, door automatic openers in stores, etc. Analog is cheaper.
The best and more pricey version is digital which locks the signal from the camera to the monitor so you will not have interference.
When I bought mine analog was the only choice. I am considering changing mine out to digital.

I like mine from rvrearviewcamera.com
It uses your phone for the monitor.
