Rear Camera View, opinions sought:

I am asking for opinions on what adjusted rear camera view angle most use when towing.

My camera angle allows me to see straight down the rear of MH to include bumper (when backing), complete hitch setup and about 2/3 of my Toad.

Was looking for possible better view angles to help judge traffic separation while changing lanes. If I adjusted camera higher to see slightly behind Toad, I would lose the view of the MH bumper (for backing).

Any thoughts?

Some back up cameras have different lens angles. With our first (fleetwood), I could see from the hitch ball to the back of our boat. With the second (also fleetwood) I could see the hitch ball and only about a third of the boat. With the Aria, thankfully, I am back to seeing the ball to the back of the boat again. It makes it easier hooking up and changing lanes. If I had the access, I would change the camera to get the wider angle instead of just adjusting the existing camera.
