Camera Systems

Hi everyone

I am interested in getting my first camera system for my Class A 34' motorhome. I don't know much about cameras or these types of systems and any info would be helpful. I am interested in getting a 3 or even a 4 camera system. At least 1 on the passanger side and at least 1 on the rear. I often tow a small 18' speed boat. Are the box style ones generally better than the side style? Is there anything I should special I should consider about purchasing these cameras? I was hoping to spend less than $500 and I am willing to run wires instead of getting the more expensive wireless ones if I have to in order to save money. I was looking on e-bay and I found these systems. They seemed less expensive than other camera systems that I have seen. Has anyone ever used any of these? Are these cameras high quality or junk? All replies welcome!!

You could check out 4ucam.com. I have purchased a 4 camera system with a 7" screen. Have not wired the system yet. But the cameras look to be good an have night vision capability. I already have rear view camera but wanted side views and a camera at the entry door for added security!

Surveillance Cams

Hey, thanks for the replies! I still haven't gotten mine yet. I've been looking at security cams. You can get them at computer supply places where you can actually record on a hard drive. They are not much more and most are completely water proof and might be better quality. The advantage to this are (1) If you get in an accident you will have it recorded (2) you can use them as security cams at a campsite or while boondocking for extra security (3) you can use them as a camcorder to film the sites (4) you can plug them into your overhead TV if you wish. Check out some of these! The only thing is, you usually have to get the monitor's separately if you don't use the TV option.

I purchased a similar system off an eBay vendor several years ago and have been happy with it. It is a 7 inch color monitor with three cameras and hard wired. The clarity is quite good and now cannot imagine being without it.

I bought mine from EBay. Your last link there VEISE camera store is the one I went with. It has 4 cameras and a 7 inch monitor. One looks at each side, one the tag-a-long and one on top to check overhead clearence. It works both PAL/ NTSC systems. NTSC is used in USA. 30 frames per second for real life like images. If I had to do it over again I would go wireless. You have to cut a 1 and 1/2 inch hole for the wire type. I would not recomend the ones for a home system. Most of them do not have the anti-movement built in. Good luck

Thank you for responding. Are all 4 of the cameras you got the same type? the box style, like in my last link? Also, what do you mean by "anti-movement" do you mean shock proof?

cameras

The home cameras are not the best idea for rv's. Most have a lower scan rate to record to a dvd. The link on ebay camera store has a help center. Explains the in's and out's. Mine are all the same. They are about 2 inches in diam. and have a view range 160 degree. Towed a 2004 Explorer to Florida and olny issue we had they do not work in fog. Google is a good resource to read about what you are looking for. Good luck
