I bought a 7" Pyle monitor off of Amazon and a night vision camera. Made a bracket myself and ran wires from rear of 5th wheel to front. Used cable tv type coax waterproof outlet to terminate wires on trailer. Then attach two cables (power/video) to truck and run actual video and power wires through the rear sliding window. Pyle monitor fits over rear view mirror. This set up works very well in both daytime and night. Run power to the camera full time (not from back up lights) to have a rear view camera. Entire setup was about $120.
