Back up camera purchase and install suggestions for 5th wheel

Im looking for suggestions, hints and tips on a backup camera/monitoring system for my 5th wheel....

some have said the wireless cameras are a great choice, and others have said they are a poor choice, due to other RF interference and lag time...

camera systems can be found from $49.95 to $3000+, but im looking for something in the more reasonable 200-400 range.

I want a 3 or 4 channel system, with a minimum of 2 side mounted cameras at the rear of my trailer, and a bumper camera at the rear of the tow vehicle...

what are people using, and is there anyone here who has fist hand experience putting together and installing their own system?.... thanks

I bought both my daughters a back up camera for their fifth wheels. I tried to convince them to buy a wired type, but they both wanted wireless. I ended buying them a higher end Tadi Brothers camera. Their trailers came with Furion cameras and mounts, which we removed and reworked the mounts.

They're happy, but find a fair amount of interference in metropolitan areas. I would still recommend the wired unit. Just add a connector alongside the fifth wheel connector.
