I got it from rear view safety, it is white so blends in nicely, really love it! On first trip we had heavy rain and wind, it was great to be able to see behind the trailer while driving. I can even see my bikes on the rack to be sure they are secure. I use flexible wire ties to secure the monitor ever the rear view mirror in my FJ it seems homely but works really well as that is where I am accustom to looking to see behind the vehicle.

I also have a system from Rear View Safety - 2 cameras, one on the RAV4 & one on the trailer mounted above the window. They are wired cameras, powered by the wiring so they can be on all the time or switched off at the monitor & I don't need to find a power source in the trailer.

I like the system, been using it for 4 years. The only problem I have had is they use a coiled 18 wheeler 7 pin connector to go between the trailer & the tow vehicle. It is overkill weight wise, and the pins get corroded, causing streaks in the image from the camera. I keep a spray can of no-corrode and touch them up every couple of weeks...

I have a wireless system that I purchased from Tadi Bros. And had sent to ETI, but haven't seen it yet as we don't pick up till 5/26. I also got the white one.

Hi Steve and Julie;

I also bought the Tadi Bros. camera for my ETI 19, but haven't installed it yet. Would be interested in exchanging thoughts and views when they're both operating.

We bought ours from Tadi Bros. as well. We brought our 19 home on 4/5. I have the white camera hooked to our Rand McNally GPS wirelessly. You'll [You and Steve & Julie] like how it works.

How did you decide which camera and options to purchase? Did ETI provide input?

Phil and Lorna,

After I saw your post, we had consider your question for a while. We really don't remember which thread on the Forum prompted us to look at Tadi Brothers but we're both [wife and I] sure that it was, indeed, on this Forum. And, we also wanted the camera compatible [meaning easy to install] with our Rand McNally GPS. Finally, the Tadi camera came in white!

We had it shipped directly to ETI. They wired it for us to turn on whenever the lights are on. A small icon on the GPS lets us switch to the camera view mode at any time.

Hope that helps.

Klaus

Very helpful information, Klaus. I need to get my camera this week and ship to ETI. Can you tell me again exactly which camera you got? I looked on the Tadi Brothers web site and did not see a 'white' camera. Thanks.
