Wireless backup camera

Anyone have info on a good wireless camera that won't break the bank. I've read reviews but real world experience is always the best.

I've been successfully using an earlier version of this system in my 35' coach for 6+ years, (50,000 miles): PEAK | Back-up Camera - 7 | Electronics | Auto Products
(I found it in a Sam's Club store for $79.95)

You still have to run power to the wireless camera. I just went with hardwired that has both power and signal. Wireless can sometimes have bad signal, not an issue with hardwired.

I have the same unit as Mel. They are hard to find now but sometimes see them on EBay. It is a model PKCORC by Peak. Depending on what you want to install it in, a double din for a wired camera can be found on EBay for about $175. This is a complete unit that will fit in the dash of most vehicles and will give you a 7inch display,GPS, hands free phone through Bluetooth and a DVD with stereo. Hard to beat at that price.

I bought the wired system with color and 7 inch monitor off e-bay. Be sure to get the long cable. The monitor fit where my old b/w Weldex monitor was. Cost a little over $100.00. Very satisfied with it for the price. You can also add 2nd camera if desired.

There must be two similar models as what I gave is the model I have. So that would give the OP two models to look for if that is the way he wants to go.
