I had not considered the upgrade before you mentioned it.
Well the reason I am considering upgrading to color was from my first experiences backing this thing up. It was at night and in Michigan where the grass is a nice shade of brown in February it was extreemly hard to distinguish grass from gravel. So as I was backing into the driveway between two ditches (which were easy to see) and that went fine.
The driveway wasnt so evident. It was wet, so the damp gravel was brown with similar shades as the grass from 11ft up. I realized is was no longer on the driveway as the MH started to list to one side as the rear wheels on one side were sinking about 8 inches into the yard.
Luckly I didnt get stuck and no damage was done (except to the yard) but I'm hoping that a color camera might make the difference. Just provide a better picture. Besides the fact that seriously who has a B/W tv anymore? I cant believe that Monaco was still using B/W in 2000. I think the last B/W tv I saw working was in 1975.
