    In this first video, I unbox and do a quick test of the new Haloview MC5111 wireless RV backup/rearview camera monitor system. I show all the included parts like mounts and hookup options and give you a look at the picture quality.

    The MC5111 is comparable to the MC7108 that I’ve used during this past snowbird trip down south. The difference is the smaller display size, 5 inches versus 7 inches, and mounting options for a license plate or Furrion. (See my full review of the Haloview MC7108)



    In this second video, I review the new Haloview model MC5111 wireless RV backup/rearview camera system. I had done a review of the 7″ display version last fall and used it during our 6 month RV snowbird trip with excellent results. So, when Haloview offered to send me their latest offering of a smaller 5″ version, I was eager to try it out.



    I loved the 7″ display but found it a little large for use in our Ram 3500 truck cab, a smaller display would be welcome giving me more mounting location options. It would also give me a chance to test out the multi-display capabilities of the Haloview system. The MC5111 performed just as good as the larger MC7801 system with much the same features. The only downside is the smaller display. It’s a trade-off.

    *Fair Disclosure* I received the Haloview free of charge.

    Thanks, next time we meet up I should do a torture test and see if these Haloview can handle a real big rig. ;)

    It might get a case of "Vertigo" on the back of our "Prairie Schooner"!
    (With our size and sails we maybe a "Clipper Ship"!)
    Happy Trails...Pal!!!

    I'm getting the 7108 after watching Ray's video. Hope to have it installed for our upcoming trip in few weeks.

    Let us know how it goes. Also if you find you need the extender antenna, let me know I have two of them now and don't find I need to use them at all on my sized rig.

    Just finished installing my MC5111 on my 2019, new 31 foot Cougar, which is pre-wired for such a camera. Really it's a bracket and power lead... Nothing more.

    I used the Furrion Bracket, the flat one.

    Piece of cake to install, literally plug and play.

    Looks fantastic and the image on the display is crisp and clear.

    I have a Ford F250 and did not want that big screen, the 5 inch is ideal.

    Going on a long trip soon, will report back on performance, but initial report is impressive, for half the cost of the Furrion model, well at least in Canada.

    I installed MC7108 today. Had to do a some electrical work which took a while but it went mostly as planned. I powered the camera on 12 volt circuit that services the rear roof vent/fan. I added a switch so it can be turn off, if desired. It seems to have a decent signal level but I won't know for sure how good until we get on the road in two weeks. 6c043y71x5t43dq2.jpg

    Side Camera and Battery Pack Demo - https://www.loveyourrv.com/haloview-side-mount-rv-backup-cameras-and-accessories/

    In this video, I give you a look at three different accessories for the Haloview Wireless RV Backup/Rearview Camera System.



    First, are side mount cameras to keep an eye on blinds spots down the sides of the RV. Second is a rechargeable battery pack aimed at those who would prefer not to run power wires into the RV. And, third a bean bag mount for the Haloview LCD display for an easy install on the dashboard. I also test out the Haloview cameras night vision capabilities and video recording.

    Looks pretty cool. We have the older model and it has worked great. Think I will order the bean bag thing.

    I seem to recall in an older review, maybe the first halo view system you reviewed that the side cameras could be triggered by inputs such as turn signals. Am I remembering correctly? Can you have the screen showing full screen in one mode and have the full screen change to side mode fulls screen while turn signal is on?

    Yes, here is the user manual for the MC7108 system https://www.haloview.com/pdf/Haloview_MC7108_User_Manual.pdf Explains the trigger wire functions.
