2016 wireless cameras

Is there anything new on the wireless cameras I see advertised? I have a Winnebago Mini 018.and really need a camera on the back of the trailer. Just feel I would be safer if I were attuned to what's behind me. Not sure where to shop locally. Doubt if I could do the install properly.

Just so you're aware, wireless cameras aren't totally wireless. They transmit the picture wirelessly, which means you don't have to have a wire running from the TV to the trailer, but the camera still needs a power source.

You can tap into the clearance lights for power if you want to mount the camera high or into the tail lights if you want to mount low. However, that means you have to drive with your lights on for the camera to work. Driving with the lights on can be a safety benefit, but some people don't want to do it.

The other problem I see mentioned with wireless cameras is interference and signal loss. That shouldn't be too much of a problem with a small trailer, however.

Try this i-Ball Wireless Camera. It uses a 5.8 GHz instead of the more common 2.4 GHz frequency which is used by a lot of other stuff which then causes interference.

This may not work for a continuous operation like you want as the camera needs to be charged each time. It has about a 5 hour operating charge.

It would be nice if they made an all in one unit. TPMS, RV GPS and Rear wireless Camera so not to have 3 screens in vehicle. Maybe one that would hook up to the vehicle GPS?
