Put together the OEM component backup camera.  I ended up using a Polycase weatherproof box.  I used 8-32 threaded inserts into the bottom of the camper to mount it and then P-clamps on the wiring harness.

That looks very good. I never did enclose mine, but haven't had any issues… at least so far. What angle did you set the camera? I left mine in a similar angle as when it was in the tailgate and that seems to give an excellent field of view.

Yeah, that looks pretty good. I never got around to a permanent solution as my temporary fix has been working fine. Nice work.

Since the camera was going to be a lot lower than it's stock position I set it so it looks straight out the back.  So far I'm pleased with the results. I didn't realize how much of a convenience the camera is.

I installed the unit (link below) in about an hour. It would have been quicker but I ran a new fused hot line from the driver side battery because I wanted a "fill time" camera not just when I was in R. It transmits on wifi and works perfectly with my Galaxy S3. I use the phone mount in the 2nd link. Freedom from wire and BlueTooth!

Chnlisle, that is a VERY cool setup. I was looking for something like that 6 months ago and could not find it, so bought a cheap wired video setup instead. Keep us posted on how well it works.

I love this thing.  I did change it from the bottom of the license plate to the top for a better view.  Here's a picture of the view before I changed the camera position.

I was pulled over by AZ HP a few minutes ago and warned that the camera was partially blocking ARIZONA on my lic. plate.  It's a violation here in the state where one can go into a bar with a concealed loaded weapon.  So back to the bottom bolts.  Oh well I still love this thing.

 

Ahhhhhh bullets and booze.  Is that fun or what.

Seems like you'd want them to see Arizona so they pass you by for us out of towners
