I just added them to our 35' 5er and love them. I use them when backing into tight spots to see where the blind side wheels are. Very handy for that. Going down the road, they have limited utility as my tow mirrors extend plenty far enough to see the side lanes.

Are they worth it? Heck yeah for me but I may have different criteria for worth it than you. I have the rear observation, 2 side cameras and I also have the door camera I put in my rear truck window so I can see the pin when backing up to hook up.

We added side cameras and a rear to our 28' 5er. 9" screen shows all 3 in the same view.
Extended trailer mirrors did not show wide enough angles and had many blind spots. Much safer now but limited depth perception.
Ebay about $120. Took 2 full days to set up. Weather proofing connections very important.
