Wireless Backup Cameras

Can you recommend a wireless backup camera for my Airstream?

We had the Voyager system installed on ours by the dealer before we picked it up. We did a review on our youtube channel -

If you have an iPhone, this one works for me.

I purchased a WiFi Video transmitter and a back up camera from Ebay and used my iPhone 4. It gives a good signal with a slight lag. Best part is the wifi video transmitter Waterproof Wireless P2P 30fps Realtime Video WiFi Transmitter for iPhone Andriod | eBay was $43.00 with free ship and the camera was another $25.00. You will need an app which is free and listed on the wifi video transmitter instruction for both Android and Apple in order to view the camera. I will try to come back and post some pictures. Installation was about 30 to 45 minutes.

Is that the 7" monitor? Can you see over the monitor OK while driving. Yes 7" easy to see in bright sunlight, bit to bright at night.
Did you have the camera wired into the center clearance light? Yes, about 8-9" below the light, hole for power grommet slightly above the mount, remove the clearance light and fish the connecting wire up and splice in. Run TV lights while towing.

Can you see traffic while towing? Yes very easily if properly tilted so that you can just about see the back bumper on the bottom. Makes it easy to know when you have passed someone.

If the camera was mounted higher, closer to the clearance light could you see the traffic while towing and still use it to see backing into a campsite? To high and you won't see past the curve of the shell. 8-9" is the sweet spot. On my 25 without full awnings I could see the corners of the bumper and slightly above the horizon line to the top.

Nice thing about the Voyager is the wide angle view. Not much out there with the angle of view.

I am 6'3" tall so I do not have any issue seeing over the monitor. The camera is wired into the light so you have to have the lights on while driving down the road - which I normally do while towing anything. One of the best things about the camera (which was not a planned solution) is that you can easily see the vehicles in the left and right lanes while you are moving. The view I have shows about 10 feet behind to the left and right so as you are overtaking another vehicle you can tell when you are clear very easily. Normally you cannot see right behind you because most people do not drive that close.
