Backup camera system

Has anyone installed a wireless system on their 5th wheel and what brand/model do you recommend?

Thanks in advance

I put a $50/60 dollar wireless unit that attaches to the license plate frame to our toyhauler.
I extended the wires, not hard, and mounted the sender unit between the propane bottles under the
white plastic cover also that was near the house batteries for power and
I put in a switch too.
It was raised up high enough to give a good signal to the receiver/screen mounted on the dash of the truck.
Admittedly it was a bit ghetto compared to the high dollar stuff but did what I wanted,
and for a price that I could afford.

Recently installed the Jensen Voyager Wireless System. Works OK, doesn't like cold weather. Outside temps we in the low to mid 30s when we headed South and had more times with No-Signal than we did with Signal. Once we reached warmer climate it worked reasonablely well. When you have signal, the picture quality is excellent, mic and speaker are on the tinney side, but to be expected of a small condenser mic and speaker. We have a 35 Ft 5er and Extended Cab Chevy Dually and I think if you had a longer Rig, you would have problem with communications between the Camera and Monitor. Camera antenna is attached to the camera, but I have the remote antenna and may try installing that farther forward on the Rig and see if that helps improve the communications. It is a nice system when working, but may be on the pricey side, I think it is currently on Sale, but still 700 bucks.

With mhs4771's comment I should clarify my post, the transmitter and camera are separate items and where I lengthened the wires and the transmitter is what was mounted at the propane tanks fairly close to the monitor.

Our. Voltage 3200 came with the voyager system, it works great when the truck and trailer are motionless, but when moving it constantly loses signal. Working with voyager customer support to hopefully solve the problem.
