Wireless back up camera

I am looking for a wireless back up camera that does not require screws to attach. I am only looking to use it when I am backing up into a space.
Thanks

Vinnie showed us a setup he uses around his shop using a Voyager camera attached to a motorcycle battery that he sets in the rear bumper of the trailer. Very clever.

I have a Voyager but I have played with my GoPro using a suction mount to the back window. The GoPro would require no wires just the camera, mount and smartphone.

I have compared the resolution of the Voyager to my Hero 7 and there is no comparison as the GoPro beats the Voyager for image quality.

The only concern with the GoPro is the connection it makes to the phone. Mine worked but it was not super quick to connect initially. Seemed fine after the connection was made.

Thank you for your responses. I took a gamble and purchased the Wireless Backup Camera with 5" Monitor Rearview License Plate HD Digital Signal Reverse Backing Up Cam Night Vision Waterproof Rear View on Amazon prime day. As it was under a 100 dollars I thought it would meet my needs and be worth a try.

Sounds like a possible solution - how do you plan to power the camera - through the license plate light?

Not sure I am going to have to do that as it is suppose to connect via wifi. If not I will have to connect using a wire. I will let you know once I receive it and have it connected.

Much like the Voyager camera, which usually gets its power from a 12V DC source, is connected to the middle marker light. The license plate camera will probably pull power from the 12V source at the license plate frame. There is a chance that it could be battery powered as well but that brings up a whole new set of challenges such as making sure it is charged when you need it.

Thanks
My MacGyver 'drill no unnecessary holes' policy required I use Industrial Strength Velcro to attach the camera above the window..😂

Ran the wire down the rain-gutter, under the window weather strip & inside the trailer to a lighted on/off switch plugged into the 12v power port between the twin beds.👍

NEVER MIND...I'm using a high mount rear view camera not a B/U camera.🥴

This has worked well for us. Uses WiFi, internal battery. I mounted it with velcro like Robert Cross used. Can easily be repositioned after mounting with adjustable pivot on base. I use it full time while on the road with an auxiliary Anker battery in waterproof case, also velcro mounted. Wifi signal is quite strong, some stuttering in urban areas, otherwise pretty smooth.

I like this no drill solution to having a rear view camera so I can feel comfortable changing lanes without having to wake up my copilot and/or second guessing my depth perception when he depends on me for same. The only "hitch" is we don't have a 12V outlet in the bedroom of our 2014 Flying Cloud 28RB. There are inverter outlets in the bedroom so I assume we could leave the inverter on and tap into one of those. Any suggestions?

My thanks to all I decided to see how the NUCam works.
