    I ordered the Rampage Wifi camera today to use with my slide-in camper. You have to take off the tailgate so obviously the camera is useless.

    Magnetic mount to anything. Connect a phone or tablet to the wifi stream and Bob's your mother's brother.

    Should also be effective for clearance cam when off roading in my 4x4 trail limo.

    I will post any feedback I have in a week or 2.

    Rampage camera will not work on a vehicle moving more than about 15 mph. Also the videio is upside down that requires locking the rotation in order to turn the fideo properly. Also it must be kept charged up or it loses connection. Have one and it works for what I want it to but just barely.

    Do not think it will work for off road use without a good tie down.

    I mounted a gopro hero3 on my front bumper to film my adventures. The built in WiFi was awesome as I connected it to my tablet. From there I could control everything. There is a company (I forget the name) that makes a case for the gopro that contains a wiring harness to power the camera from your truck so no more batteries to worry with. Just an idea that may work for you.
