hi ya'll. we retired last feb.we tow a 2007 toyota camary w/ tow dolly. we have a class c 31ft. it can be a bear at times. the problem i have is you cannot see the car while your driving. we do not have rear monitor. i've talked to alot of others w/class a's, and i believe they can see the car okay,but cannot actually see the tires.i've had a blowout on the passenger rear and never knew it until i was told at a stoplight. by that time there was very little tire left. so now what? you need to see if you can tow all 4 down? if not, then you need to see what other options you have? dolly/trailer.

Hi and welcome:
If you do a search on here of tire monitor systems you will find a lot of great information. I do believe some systems can monitor both your RV tires as well as your car. I do believe there is wireless back up cams too that can be installed on your RV
Enjoy your travels

Get a camera. I watch mine all the time. I don't know if I could see a bad tire until it is to late though. Helps when changing lanes to.

What a long strange trip it's been.

No longer RVing. Happy Trails to you.

Go to Walmart, buy a Home security camera ($42.00). It has nite vision capability also. Go to Radio Shack, get a 12V converter ($24)with adjustable outputs (need 5A).
Purchase a 7" or 9" 12V color TV with A/V input capability (mine was $149.00).
The camera cable is 60' long so you will have no problem running the cable wherever you need it. The TV can also be used as a regular TV as it has an antenna with about 6' of cable and internal battery. Also a remote control. Wire everything up, turn it on and you will have great view of anything out back for around 60'
