Vehicle CCTV System For Motorhome

Just trying to find out the best options for fitting a CCTV system for my motorhome. Obviously just to monitor the exterior of the vehicle when making journeys and when its parked up. Mainly for deterrent purposes but also would be useful if I had an accident as it would be good for proven who was at fault. Any ideas or experience of this would be most helpful.?

My deterrent was a heavy dog choke chain hanging beside the hab door and a stainless bowl beside the step. Cost Ä3.

That's great for keeping burglars out Ray I will try that but I was thinking about monitoring the exterior of my vehicle whilst driving as well. Just with a 2 camera cctv system like the systems on this site here. They look fairly straight forward but just wondered if anyone had fitted a kit to their motorhome and whether I needed something more specifically designed for vehicles as I think the systems there are more so for residential/commercial buildings. Not sure about lens angles and how vibration might effect them performance wise. If anyone else has any advice it would be much appreciated.

Yeah, why not? Most modern cars have small video cameras reversing cameras. Might be an application for your needs Lakeside. Or how about a dashcam repositioned?

But that sort of system is expensive, and really needs installing at initial vehicle construction.

The vast majority get by without anything at all, so why do you feel it necessary to monitor the outside of your vehicle when travelling?? This is not a facetious question, I am just curious as to the reasoning behind your enquiry.

Its not the destination that matters.

It's who you share the journey with (even if itís in a caravan!) I am very fortunate to have Mrs Plodd to share mine with

Surely being able to watch a TV screen while driving (even a CCTV) would be illegal ?

It may well prive a distraction so while a dashboard camera records it is not normal to watch while driving surely ?

Remember Jo Cox and what she stood for.

Any comments above are only MY OPINION and should be read as that.

Itís not a TV screen itís a monitoring device. Many large vehicles have multi cameras fitted these days, many serve as rear view cameras in exactly the same way as rear view mirrors. They wouldnít be fitted by manufacturers if they were illegal would they?

Expensive, undoubtedly. Needs to be part of the original construction? Not really.
Iíve got no urge to have such a system myself, but there is clearly a market for them.

For retro fit systems:

For another example of in built use of camera technology:

The second one claims a 5% fuel efficiency saving (improved aerodynamics).
