"Fern's" adoption

Fern is staying in Colorado but coming to a new home: 1993 E250 Super Cargo with 112,000 miles, 4x4, PH, solar, furnace, cooktop, fresh water/grey, microwave, CB. Sure needs a back-up camera...any suggestions? I'm jazzed!

Wow that's a clean looking van. Do a little forum research for backup cameras...there's several posts. Welcome to the forum

Hey, welcome! Glad itís staying on CO, where you at?
Look at getting a double din stereo head unit that has backup camera, keeps things less cluttered up front than adding a separate monitor, pioneer or kenwood both have a nice range of units to fit the bill, with/without built in navigation.

Welcome to the club, that's a great looking van for a 93, luckily it has a nice color combo unlike the teal my 96 has inside. Looks to be in pretty good condition too.

Obviously your excited - Good for you!
One of the first things I added as well. Consider first what you expect it to accomplish for you, and placement.
I made the mistake of opting for a Licence plate frame camera. Great picture, but I wish i installed it above the back doors so the tire & rear box were included in the view - proximity of these are left out when the camera is mounted I find myself having to incur additional expense by either adding another or moving the existing one.

Good advice! It might have to wait in the priority list, behind new tires.
