Backup Camera Recommendations - Aftermarket

I just purchased a used 2015 - 28A (previous rental unit) and I would like to consider getting a backup camera setup. I am wondering in any of you have some really good units that you recommend? I would like a decent sized screen and a decent resolution camera and DIY capable installation without breaking the already empty bank.

Thanks.

This is what I use for hooking up trailers and such. I have 3 different vehicles and 3 different trailers. I wanted wireless and mobile. Thx

I had a BC-20 I used with my Garmin 760. The better you want the more it costs! They are all pretty simple to install and setup.

Good Information

Thanks for the info. The BC-20 looks good. I typically use one of our iPhones for Navigation, so I am not sure I want to spend the $$ for a 760, but the RV specific features look interesting.

Do you find the RV features of the 760 worth the cost? I am guessing that the readability is way better on the 7 inch monitor than my itty bitty old iPhone.

Any other good 6 or 7 inch monitor products for Rear View that anyone can recommend.

(I wish that I had gotten one of those iballhitch cameras for my old trailer!)

I've had my 760 for about 4 years now and really like it. The traffic info has been pretty accurate and finding upcoming campgrounds has been beneficial a few times when we are freestyling along the highway.

Our last RV was 13+ feet high and 65 feet long so it was nice to know when we got off the highway when height or length might be an issue or if we were traveling at our own risk because ht/length data wasn't available for the roads we were traveling.

Kind of a late response but I bought a camera from Rear View Safety about 5 years ago. It cost about 100 bucks and was easy to mount. It was color infrared Which I loved as it can see in the dark! Invaluable when backing into a campsite late at night, or into a dark storage building. Wish my new Vegas had that camera.
