What I would like to know is how the dual camera setups perform in those conditions. Do they help significantly or does the lens get covered too much by spray to be helpful?  I don't expect  perfection but it would be good just to be able to see reasonably clear headlights from the vehicles behind even if the actual vehicles were blurred.
I did fit a dual camera system after posting this and am AMAZED. Yes, in heavy spray the view gets very fogged up but once the spray ceases it clears pretty well. My system was the high Def version with a good monitor from Parkingcameras.com and it even has lines on the reversing camera input which can be calibrated for distance. Best rear view I've had in almost 50 years of tugging and motorhoming!

Which model did you choose? I'm looking at this myself but don't see the 'lines' mentioned.

£65 did all of this, pics have to be seen to be believed
Permanent rear view, better than any mirror, selectable parking view with the guide lines, what you see which looks out of focus is gravel on my drive, rear ladder also seen.
Use rear view when approaching a parking bay to check for high level obstacles, then switch to parking view for the close in stuff. Can easily and repeatably park 4 to 6" from a wall or fence.

Did you use the existing mirror display, and then just add the rear view cameras? I can see cameras for £66 each.

No, the total of £65 was display, both cameras, 2 x high quailty 15m cables, the power and interconnect cable to the monitor.
If you go to the article, Executive, a new project, its all in there

Ah... Found it! I was looking on parkingcameras.com and didn't realise it was from Ebay. Still a great price especially with the recommendation - unfortunately not available currently from that seller.
