Today's RV cameras remind me of top secret devices reserved for special forces units in the military. They come with night vision capability and motion sensors. Those of you who think camping and RVing is reserved for the yokels of the world, think again. We have access to technology others will never use.

Backing up a big rig can be a stressful process, especially if you are alone and have no visual help. Often times you are operating blind because it is impossible to see what is directly behind the RV. RV mirrors do 90 percent of the job, but that extra 10 percent that we cannot see often gets us in trouble causing us to damage our rigs and spoiling the vacation. RV cameras can help prevent back up disasters.

RV Cameras and Other Smart Tips

When camping out in the wild, you should implement some important practices, most of which are common sense and you probably do already. Stock your pantry and/or cabinets with plenty of healthy, long-lasting foods and install more than one battery to make sure the cabin continues to function. Also, turn the lights off when you are not using them and utilize fans and awnings to keep yourself cool instead of draining the battery with the air conditioner. In addition, bring extra drinking water; it's cheap and essential.

At the tail end World World I, Americans jumped on the road and began camping out of their cars, adding tents, beds and cooking facilities to their cars. As early as 1920, RVers would camp in uncomplicated wooden house structures that they would build at home and attach to their model T's. This idea of having a so-called home on wheels actually dates back thousands of years, but I am fairly certain early Nomads didn't conceive of a fully loaded RV with the type of amenities available today.
