If you've ever driven a motorhome or RV, you know that larger vehicles have larger blind spots too. While many modern cars and trucks now come standard with backup cameras, millions of RV owners are still driving with giant blind spots and backing up without the aid of camera technology. Fortunately, you don't have to be one of them anymore.
Light vehicles sold in the United States — including cars, SUVs, trucks, and vans — will be required to have backup cameras by 2018. It's no surprise that more and more manufacturers are answering the demand for aftermarket RV versions. After all, RVs have fewer rearview mirrors, but bigger blind spots and more horsepower.
If you're interested in By adding a backup camera to a vehicle that doesn’t have one, you're making a wise decision for yourself and everyone else on the road. By May 2018, "rear visibility technology" will be mandatory in every new lightweight vehicle, thanks to a 2014 mandate by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). The federal agency took multiple studies into account, including their own cost-benefit analyses and extensive crash tests, and verified what the auto industry already knew: that backup cameras prevent an overwhelming majority of low-speed collisions.
We have once again brought a new camera solution to market that allows truck owners to replace a burned out or stolen factory rear view camera. This time it's for the 2010-2013 GM Sierra and Silverado lines where the new camera kit will replace the factory tailgate bezel and camera assembly with a new plug replacement camera system. This camera utilizes a Super CMOS sensor, the latest in camera technology, and is pre-mounted in a factory GM tailgate bezel for a fit and finish that looks factory - but at a fraction of the cost. This new kit also gives current GM truck owners (with factory camera) an option to install a camera with the added safety and convenience of parking guidelines. Our parking guidelines were inspired by those found on most of the new cars produced by major auto makers, providing that OEM look that our customers demand.
