Looking for 4 camera system recommendations

The Aladdin Monitoring System died in our 2004 Monaco Windsor, which also took care of the backup camera. We're not entirely sure what we will do with the Aladdin system, but we've decided to replace the camera system in any case.

Now the difficult part, finding a camera system. There are so many. Ideally, we'd like 2 cameras in the rear, and 2 blindspot cameras. I'm not a huge fan of wireless cameras, so a wired system would be preferred. I like the idea of 4-pin connectors/cables, just because it all seems a bit easier.

There are so many options on Amazon and such.

Any recommendations?

Call these guys, they're really on top of the game regarding RV camera's. I've used their services a couple of times and have always been extremely happy.

Did you find better quality purchasing the monitor and cameras separate?
How does your system compare to these kits?

The 9" Quad monitors are all about the same, all Chinese. The DVR models cost more. I wanted the DVR, it replaces my dash camera. I did not like the cameras that come with the systems you referenced, not the specs or the performance but the size. My Cameras are the size of a backup camera on a car, about 1 inch square. I mounted them on the bottom of the outside mirrors and 1 on the front and 1 on the rear. The monitor has trigger wires for the turn signal, I did not use them. My cameras do not have audio, never used it anyway. Normal driving I have it on the rear camera only. In traffic I press the AV button 1 time and it switches to 3 camera view (left, rear, right). It records 4 cameras simultaneous to a 64 gig card regardless of which cameras are being viewed. This monitor actually has 5 camera inputs but will only record 4.

Which cameras did you purchase?
I didn't realize such a difference in camera size between these kits and individual pieces.

Good evening guys,

Here is what I ended up buying...

9 Inch 4 Split Quad LCD Screen
The resolution is 800x480, not the best... but let's see how it will do.

2x side view car camera
Horizontal Resolution 700TVL
Sony CCD 700TVL image sensor

1x side view car camera
Horizontal Resolution 700TVL
Sony CCD 700TVL image sensor

I'll run extra cables to the back of the coach, so I can add cameras. 3 cameras should be a good start. And the high resolution is important to me - not sure why
