The affordable rear view camera I got for our small travel trailer
How I mounted the camera to the rear bumper of our small travel trailer. The wing nut allows for easy setup and later packing it away. (Notice the strong double sided tape covered in red. This will work well for installations where mounting a bolt is not convenient.)
Adding a accessory plug to the power cable for the camera.
Running the power cable for the camera to the inside of the trailer.
The power cable on the inside of the trailer. When setup, it reaches from the cabinet to the accessory port on the ceiling near the TV.
The antenna for the camera. I use valcro to attach it beside the outdoor hatch.
In addition to helping back into a campsite as shown in the photo on top of this page, it's great to see behind the trailer when on the road.

Denny JohnsonAfter having spent most of our adult life in Orlando, my wife Fay and I moved to Knoxville, TN in 2020. We are loving the change of seasons and being near the mountains. Plus, this part of the country is loaded with great places to camp.
We camped years ago with a pop-up camper, but got serious about it when we purchased our Casita in 2014. There was a lot to learn as we started traveling with it, and a lot of conflicting opinions on line. That's when I decided that creating a website would be a good retirement project. I started tinyTowable.com to share things we've learned along the way that have worked well for us in hopes that the information would be of help to others.
