Extra reversing camera

Post by Campbell on Wed May 24, 2017 1:30 pm

I have a Kemerton XL 2016 model.
Now my question is how easy hard would it be to fit an extra camera to the existing system.
It would be mounted in the bumper so as I can see the tow bar ball to line up my trailer hitch.
The existing camera does not pick up the tow bar / trailer hitch as I don't always have a helper with me to guide me in.
Any advice on this gratefully accepted, on if this topic has been covered before just tell me where I can find it I did do a search but could not find anything on adding extra cameras.

Would it be an idea to change the camera for  a twin camera then have one to show the tow ball? just a thought.

I too am not impressed with the standard Pug set up, camera or monitor. 
 
As daisy mae suggests think the easiest solution would be to fit a twin camera system at the same time replacing the monitor mirror with one that is on with the ignition.   

I fitted a system on our last van, one camera pointing down (in your case to the towbar) and the other set as a proper rear view mirror.  
I used a wired system on the Windsor in preference to a wifi but it didnt cost that much and the kits are readily available
