Gopro camera

Someone suggested getting a Gopro camera and mounting it on our travel trailer to record what happens with the rear kitchen bounce we're getting. I could also record movement with our frame, suspension and wheels.

Those cameras aren't cheap and am not sure if we'd use it much after that. But we do have an ordinary camcorder. Anyone know if I could mount one on/under the frame somewhere, somehow so it won't get damaged or fall off? Will have to find a dry day but the rainy season seems to have started. () I'm also thinking of recording the movement with our Lippert electric stab. jacks. They flex and move a lot.

Perhaps a dashcam would work OK. I use one all the time shooting out the windshield and it is rather clear. I don't know if the closeups would be good enough but anything more than a few feet seems OK.

After your research, you might enjoy using it for scenic drives, security and proof that the cell phone nut cut you off.

If you want, I'll test mine for distance.
