My wife with the walkie talkie!
IMHO the down side to a backup camera when moving into a camp site is that it just cannot see everything. It will either be pointed at the ground or the trees. My wife looks for everything and makes a lot of noise if i get close to tree limbs, rocks, what ever.

Hey rick, I bought one at Sam's Club for $79. It helps with hitching, but you'll need lots of practice to get the angle right.

Its hard to beat the one at Sam's Club. They even lowered the price here in ohio to $59. It has a 7" screen that can double as a dvd player as it has inputs for video & audio. It is wireless with a transmitter to the truck. I hooked mine up to the running lights so it will be on when traveling down the road as I always run with lights on. If you only want it to backup, hook it up to the backup lights as they suggest in the instructions.

I wouldn't call it a fisheye as it doesn't distort near the edges as that would. I would say it is more of a wide angle lens. I have it mounted on the back of my 5er and I can see everything left and right almost to the back of the trailer.

I looked on Sam's site, and the one they have now is expensive $242. The one I have is made by Peak. Just google peak backup camera, and you will find it at other places.
