If You Drive An RV You Really Need A RV Backup Camera System
Have you ever been driving down the highway and spotted a large recreational vehicle (RV) coasting along the road with car being towed behind it? If so, have you ever wondered how the driver is able to maneuver such a large and seemingly unwieldy vehicle?
You’d be correct in assuming that a major dilemma for most RV drivers is seeing the traffic on each side of the RV as well as behind the vehicle. Recreational vehicles usually consume most of the width of the driving lane it happens to be in — making it more important than ever to know where other surrounding vehicles are located. The right side rear-view mirror is sometimes partially blocked, and the small convex mirror is often ineffective at picking up the presence of smaller vehicles that are cruising alongside the passenger side door.

Thanks to RV backup cameras, RV drivers have a way to view a towed car located behind the motor home or to see passing traffic. These camera systems generally allow the RV driver to obtain a view of up to 110 degrees horizontally and approximately 85 degrees vertically. These figures largely depend on the type of camera system an RV happens to be equipped with.
Video camera backup systems will usually self-activate when the RV is put into reverse gear by the driver. However, a lot of drivers prefer to have the camera system constantly turned on. The video monitor itself is typically installed and mounted right above the windshield. You will sometimes see monitors on top of the dashboard or directly embedded into them. It depends on the type of RV and the preference of the driver if a custom camera system has been specially installed.

As you can probably imagine, many owners are choosing to equip their RVs with Global Positioning System navigation units. As a result, you’re starting to see video monitors that give you the ability to switch from a map-view of your current location that’s provided by the GPS system to a view of surrounding traffic as seen from the backup camera system. Some people even configure their monitors to be able to display entertainment like movies in addition to navigation information and rear-view displays. However, most recreational vehicles have a separate television screen that’s exclusively dedicated to broadcasting entertainment.
