Does yours have the magnifier thing on the rear window? Mine has one that lets you see a lot more than you'd normally be able to.
Thanks for the response, Skater. I looked at the high mount brake light first, I thought it might at least let me look up into the space between the roof and the headliner with a borescope to see what's in there but the brakelight case is mounted from the rear so it can't be removed without removing assorted interior panels or the medicine cabinet.
I do have the magnifier on the rear window and it works surprisingly well but the Mrs. wants a back up cam like we had on our Class A.
What I've decided to do is run the camera cable along the roof rack like the TV antenna and then into the interior at the same point the antenna enters the coach. That drops into a space that I can access from a removable panel inside the upper closet and from there I can snake it around fairly easily (fingers crossed) to the front of the van. It's a less elegant solution than a more direct route in but I don't want to pull off lots of panels inside or goof and drill a hole through the roof and hit a hard crossmember or drill into a space that's a dead end.
It would all be a lot easier if it were not 105° outside. Even after dark it's still past 100° and makes working in the van really miserable.
Thanks again for your comment.
