Dash camera feedback

Looking to buy a dash camera for rv. Know the must have features, but curious if one needs blue tooth or WiFi. Believe I can get a very good camera for under $200. Would appreciate feedback on feedback on various models and what not to buy. Thanks in advance.

I have 3 Apeman C770 4K resolution OLED screen cameras. They are the best in my book. I do not use the rear cameras that come with it. You can access the videos with your cell phone or tablet. They cost about $130.00 and their tech support is fantastic. I had a problem with the windshield mount, which was my fault, and they sent me a new complete camera free of charge.

Rexing 4k dash cam

We've been using the Rexing V1 for about a year. It came with 2 mounting plates si I put 1 in the RV and 1 in our toad. I bought the hardwire kit for it so I could hardwire in the RV and use the cigarette lighter socket in the toad.. this also takes a 256gb micro SD card which is great so you get plenty of record time at 4k resolution. It cost $99 on Amazon.

For $30 more they offer a rear camera with it too.
I would buy again. Good luck on your decision

I have had good luck with the Black Box dash cams. Only one out of four has gone belly up, but at about $55 each they are expendable.

I bought this:
APEMAN Dash Cam 1080P FHD DVR Car Driving Recorder 3 Inch LCD Screen 170 Wide Angle, G-Sensor, WDR, Parking Monitor, Loop Recording, Motion Detection


from Amazon for $45. Works great. The only little thing is since the coach windshield is pretty much vertical and not slanted like a car windshield, the lens touches the windshield. But, the video isn't affected at all. For the price you can't go wrong. I use the 12V plug. I have a high end camera for my truck that was several hundred dollars. I'll never spend that kind of money again on a dashcam.

I have the same camera and it works well. Bought both my daughters one for Christmas a couple of years ago. My oldest daughter was sideswiped about two months ago. Other driver blamed her on the police report, however when the police told him she had a dash camera and video of the accident he admitted fault. I think these are a must have these days.

Asking for about everything. Hi quality multi-function forward dash cam....plus additional rear wireless camera. Plus a system that can be used as a security system when parked. Maybe two additional wireless cameras, one for each side. Probably have to be hard wired to coach batteries for endurance. Must also be able to make the coffee in the morning.
