I was not happy with the camera at all, this I thought if it worked, was worth trying.  My screen can run 4 cameras, which you can scroll through. This one runs of the parking lights, so I run with parking lights on and I can see who is behind.
I have one on the Nissan as a reversing camera. I would like a second one dedicated to backing up to the hitch, but at $140 for each camera it is on the still to do list.

Derek on a side note, I received a notification of a new post, this is the first time I have received this for some time. Was it from the upgrade?

Yes John, it seems to have fixed quite a bit. The old server had an issue with bigpond for some reason.  Cheers

Rear bar fitted
When I was first planing building the camper I planed on having a rear steel bumper bar, but I thought just fitting rubber bumpers will be good enough.
The problem with this was then, where to mount the swing down spare wheel. I have made a rear wheel carrier, but I found it heavy to lift and I could see no was to fit gas rams to assist.
I have now fitted a rear bar which in length  has added 200mm to the total length, but is no further out than the spare wheel anyhow.
Using some large weld on hinges I then modified the rear wheel carrier, and fitted two gas struts to assist in the lifting of the carrier.

John, have you got a current weight for the unit.
It must be getting heavy.
It will never fall apart.

Chally it is much easier for me now, although I do not plan on changing tyres to often. Smiley
No Aart, I have not got a recent weight, but I will sooner or later, but I want a fully loaded weight, as it I was heading of on a longer trip.
Ball weight was when it tested it recently was 185kg, although that still depends what I have in the front storage area.
I think you are right though it will not fall apart  in a hurry.

I love the way it is evolving John.  This is a neat idea.  I keep my roadside assist number handy if I need to change a wheel on the Fiat.  Grin

Derek never thought of roadside assist, but they might not come to me sometimes due to where we are going, so I need it to work for me just in case. Smiley
