IF and I repeat IF ; it is a aftermarket BU camera you'd have to identify the brand and purchase the base unit for the tow vehicle .

Maybe cheaper to get a complete unit new and have it installed .

Judging from the mount position , it might only work when the vehicle running lights are on.

Can you get close enough to look for any manufacturers info ?

On my Dutchmen Kodiak Cub it is a pre-wired mounting fixture for a Furrion camera. There is a cable inside the fixture that is connected to the running lights just above the fixture or to the backup lights below.

You may have a leaflet or manual for the pre-wired fixture that would specify the camera it is designed for. You need a camera with transmitter to mount on the fixture, and a receiver with a display screen to mount in the tow vehicle.

I modified the fixture to mount a different brand of camera. Mine is a Garmin BA30 camera and displays on my Garmin 770 GPS screen.

It is a mounting bracket for a backup camera - probably Furrion as it looks exactly like what was is my Coachman. If you remove the screws holding the flat plate on you will find a 12 volt power connector that will be wired with the running lights. I cut the connector off and soldered in a HaloView camera system and had to do some modification since it uses a different style bracket.
