Even with extended or auxiliary mirrors, you may not be able to see what is following you when towing a caravan. With this caravan reversing system/sensors you will not only be able to see what is following to your caravan, you will also be able to see when reversing the caravan on to a pitch and there is the extra bonus of a reversing camera for your tow vehicle. Rear view mirrors are essential and a legal requirement, but noticed some huge advantages with a rear view camera. On roads, you can tell if there is anyone speeding up behind you, especially useful if waiting to make a right turn. Better still, if you need to pull out to overtake on the motorway, you can be sure you are in the clear. Incidentally, some people believe that, because it is illegal to watch TV when driving, the same applies to a rear view monitor. It does not. The law specifically allows for views of the vehicle or the road.
There’s a huge range of caravan gadgets on the market designed to make life on the road that little bit easier. A caravan reversing Systems/Sensors is a nifty piece of kit that has both practical and safety benefits.
The most advanced models operate using wireless technology transmitting images from a rear-mounted camera to a monitor on the dashboard.
The rear-view camera shows the driver exactly what’s going on behind the caravan to help inform driving maneuvers, and avoid nasty bumps and scrapes. The camera can also be positioned on the rear of the tow car to help guide the driver when the time comes to hitch the caravan up to the tow ball.
Normally, caravan reversing Systems/Sensors offers a weatherproof camera with anti-shake filters for a more stable picture. The flat screen colour monitor, adjustable mounting brackets, and camera are offered for a cheaper price as a self-fit package. Some caravan reversing Systems/Sensors now comes with a ‘multi-camera’ option which allows the driver set up multiple cameras and switch between different views. Particularly useful if the driver wants to get a view of the hitch, and the rear-view without having to move the camera. Another caravan reversing Systems/Sensors come with wireless option. It offers a digital wireless (DW) system, which is reportedly interference free and can be run at the same time as other wireless and Bluetooth devices.
If you decide to fit a reversing camera it could be worth notifying your insurance company in case they offer a discount for having the extra safety device installed.
