    I bought the Streetwise SWRCM wireless reversing camera kit from Ebay for £48, I think they normally retail for about £80 from Amazon. It’s a great little piece of kit and was easily fitted to the back of my twin axle. I mounted the transmitter underneath the van in a weatherproof plastic box and picked up the 12v supply that goes to the back of my fridge. The transmitter comes on when coupled to the vehicle and transmits faultlessly to my Iphone all the time the engine is running – Just like having a rear view mirror!

    Interesting article but prices seem expensive. My concern would be voiding the water ingress warranty, as I was told you could not drill into walls. Would be more sensible in this day and age to have them as standard by manufacturers as it is a safety device not a luxury

    I have been married to he best camera in the world, my wife for the last 45 years of Caravanning the secret is if I can’t see her I don’t move till I can SIMPLE.and we have been in some tight places over the years and so far no bumps or scrapes.Touch Wood.

    This of course works for us and not everyone.

    I bought my wireless kit on eBay for £38.00 and it’s worked perfectly now for two years.
    Prices seem excessive to me

    Hi.Regarding the reversing camera article I have fitted 2 wireless cameras, 1 pointing at towball,and the other on rear top of my Bailey caravan.The set up I bought from Halfords and is made by RING.The cost of the monitor and 1 camera was approx £90 with the additional camera at £50.Both cameras work with the monitor but only 1 at a time can be seen on excellent bit of kit that took me approx 2 hrs to fit both.Highly recommended.
