Rear camera on toad.

Has anybody put a wireless camera on the back of their toad with the monitor in the RV? If so, how well did it work?

I tried a wireless camera in the back of my 10.4m Mirada and the signal reception at the front was so bad I changed to a wired camera. I suspect the reception would be even worse from another 3-4 m further back. You might be better to use the seventh wire in the trailer coupling to wire a camera to your toad. Having said that, my TPMS sensors work fine over about 20m, so maybe I just got a poor wireless camera.

When I had a TT I did that. Also found wireless did not work to good. I did it because my depth perception is poor and I could not tell by the mirrors when it was safe to change lanes. With the Motor home I can see in the MH camera when it is safe. Just curious, why do you need one on the back of the toad?

Why? Isn't the backup camera on your HM sufficient?

On my coach I can only see back to the rear roof of my toad, not even to the edge. I like it that way though. Can't see tailgaters so they don't bother me.

However, I can see a vehicle in the lane next to the toad enough to know when it's safe to pull back into my lane.

For the same reason you stated. I'm blind in one eye and have zero depth perception.
