Now a Class B owner

Hi all. In 2016, went from a 38' 5th wheel to a 28' Class A to a 24' Class C and now going, after last trip out east, to a 20' Class B. Can now see the benefit to going smaller if you can find the right one to fit your style. So anyway, my question, now being smaller want to be able to efficiently parallel park in and along the city streets. While not having any particular problems, don't want any ether. A small scuff to someone else's car or whatever will cause everyone time and aggravation as well as an increase in insurance rates. Knock on wood, no accidents or violations for almost 50 years. Anyway, wondering what to use as front and rear view cameras. Do now have one connected to Garmin for the rear on our Class C and am satisfied. That said, don't want to have to remove it every time we use the Class B. Does anyone have any experience in a pair of cameras with one monitor. The only time it (or they) will be used is for parking. Any suggestions or experience would be appreciated. Thanks in advance. Doug

Most newer Class Bs will have a backup camera with grid line guidance. My Transit has a low camera and I've added an above rear door camera thats on all the time I'm driving

Doug, high definition cameras front and rear, plus rear proximity sensors...look at Rhydeen Mobile Electronics .

I don't have side cameras but this will help.

While I certainly can parallel park, I don't usually have to.

After I put a bike rack on my Sprinter I had to forgo the rear proximity sensors and disable them, but, they're still there.

My monitior is integrated right into the stereo system. Good luck.
