Jo, mirrors are the first line of defense. Most cameras are mounted in the dash some place to the right of the driver. Generally kind of low down. This is great if your are 23 years old & have cat like reflexes, and the vision of a hawk. My 2006 34' damon has such a mounted camera. Bought an
two camera with 7" color monitor system on e-bay. Is this where I have to say I don't work for E-bay?
Took my Damon, black and white camera and turned it down to see the hitch and front of the Jeep only. About all it was good for anyway. Mounted the monitor on the back side of the sun visor. Now I have a heads up display right in front of me and at eye level (almost) if I want it. Also mounted a switch in the dash to turn the cameras on or off. When not needed I just fold the sun visor up out of the way, as normal. Can switch from left to right camera with a button on the monitor. Also mounted a chrome spot light from Harbor Freight (don't work for them either) up by the old Damon camera. With a switch (next to the camera switch) to light up the area when driving or for evening cook outs. The biggest problem is running the wires in convoluted plastic tubing. Home Depot has it. You have to install the 2 camera wires, spot light feed and ground in the tube before running it along the frame rail with nylon ties. Will attach the exterior & switch pics later. Also installed an extra 12 volt accessory plugin when doing the ele work. Any detailed question PM me.
