We do all of the time. Our 1964 has the removable front vent, I stuck a mount to the top of it. I had used the suction cup but it came loose after a few hours - thank goodness I had a tether!

It's not like you get a bunch of unique video, after a few minutes of seeing the front cap, the truck and a few cars zooming by everything starts gets real repetitive.

I like this idea - seems to me it would work well as a backup camera or a what's happening behind me camera when we are going down the road plus I would have a GoPro for whatever else I wanted to use it for. Can the GoPro be turned off and on by the app when not in use to conserve battery power? Will the WiFi version work the same or should I spring for the HERO4 with the Bluetooth?

My iPad will barely control the wifi gopro from the cab of the truck to the top of the front cap. I doubt it would reach to the rear of the camper for use as a backup camera.

Yes, you can control the power but it stays semi active because it's still monitoring the wifi so battery life is better but still limited to a few hours

This works great if you have an iPhone and want a rear view camera: rvrearviewcamera.com.

I don't think it works well for a backup camera as there is a noticeable delay with the live preview, you can see it in YouTube videos. I just wanted to mention it before you drop the money for it, the delay may be less with the Hero 4.

Before y'all get into a debate on "Why?"--can I ask a silly question? I mean other than that one. Does a GoPro or similar camera broadcast life video? I mean, could I use it as a live wireless backup camera when I have the need?

I'm sure it has been done, but it would be interesting to see video of the inside of the Airstream while being towed. Before new axles and afterwards.
