Camera system suggestions - rear view/side view/dash cam combo?

I am hoping to find an all-in-one solution for a camera system for our class A. I am looking for a dual rear view camera, one for backing up/rear view, and one pointing down toward the rear bumper/trailer hitch. I'd like two sideview cameras roughly located near the sideview mirrors. I'd also like a dash cam that records however a typical dashcam works. I'm hoping I can find all that running into one single monitor/recording device. Does such a thing exist?

When I bought the coach, it came with a dual rear camera setup, two Velvac sideview mirrors with built-in cameras, and a 7" monitor (all uninstalled, in boxes). It's a pretty low quality monitor, the rear cameras are ok, but the cameras in the Velvac mirrors don't seem to work and I'm not getting much help from Velvac. Instead of dumping a bunch of time and effort into a cobbled together and partially broken system, I'm considering just selling the parts I have for whatever I can get for them, and put that toward an all-in-one functional solution.

I purchased the Amtifo A7 wireless backup camera system. I just hooked it up last week and mounted it to my 27’ travel trailer and i could see clearly in the 7” 1080 screen suction cup mounted to my tow vehicle. It can run multiple wireless cameras such as a license plate and side driving light cameras. I almost bought the Furrion for my new camper but this only cost $145 vs $550+installation.

I put the Haloview system on my trailer a couple years ago. It can handle up to four cameras, but I only installed the rear and side cameras. It is wireless for the signal, but you do need 12 volt power. The side cameras have integrated marker lights so you can just replace existing markers, but have to keep your parking lights on. I don't see why it wouldn't work on a Class A. You can also buy the cameras individually, so you could put regular cameras on the side as long as you have 12 volts. It will let you rotate the image so a camera bracket that would normally be up/down for the back could be mounted sideways on the side.

I never found the side cameras to be that much benefit. I could see alongside just as well with the mirrors and the rear camera let me judge how far back cars were back when changing lanes. It does come with a wiring harness to automatically switch to the side view cameras when you activate the turn signal, but I never hooked that up.

I will likely be removing/selling it as I just upgraded my tow vehicle and I now have the GM multi camera system. The truck has eight cameras built in. I just received the rear trailer camera so will be testing that out soon. Having the screen built into the truck will be much less hassle than a second monitor to attach somewhere.
