Back up camera systems

Have any of you guys bought back up camera systems from "Rear View Safety?

The look good on the internet, but I'm looking for some first hand experiences.

thanks

I've posted this before.

I recently completed a new installation for under $100, comparable to systems I've seen for over $300.

I did a write-up for the Safari Yahoo group.

Hope this helps answer your question.

Ditto, same as Ken again us Safari Dudes stick together I also ended up with a totally 12 vdc system which means I do not have to mess up the inverter (back of the bus), and craning my neck up to look at the big screen TV, which showed a good picture until I converted it to an LCD. That is a problem due to viewing angle limitations of LCD's.

Another Safari?
In my '96 Sahara, 35', I Installed a "Peak 7" system, (Sam's Club $79.95).

Color camera & 7" LCD monitor. All 12 volt. Wireless or hardwired, (I did BOTH).

Works great!

I bought the RVS 770613 to replace my old black and White system that was failing. It works great and I did all the work myself which was easy except for fishing the new cable from the bottom of the back cap to where the exit hole was up top. It took some work but finally got the cable.

I bought the [url=http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/STARVISION-TM-121-12-1-TFT-LCD-ROOF-TOP-TV-MOUNT-_W0QQcmdZViewItemQQhashZitem3f01d8ebcaQQitemZ27061 3933002QQptZCarQ5fAudioQ5fVideo]7 inch version on Fleabay [/url] plus a new camera ($49) from Fry's online. The new camera had the "Mirror function", a must have. I did have to swap the lens from the old camera to the new one. Another one of those Safari Dudes Trick

Thanks for the reply Fred,
I just ordered it yesterday and was hoping someone would tell me if they liked it. I need to install where there has never been a camera before, so I am a little nervous about doing it.

That system is very similar to mine and it works great.

I like his quad camera setup, but swap one of the rear cams for a license plate one and add the trailer hookup wires... Backup, left/right sides, and one on the back of the trailer/toad
