Do you have a dash cam on your RV or tow vehicle?

Dash cams have become fairly popular among RV owners. Sure, you can capture what are sometimes insane wrecks on the road in front of you, but they can also come in handy if you yourself get into a wreck. You have proof for the insurance company if the accident wasn’t your fault. A dash cam is worth having just for that!

Do you have a dash cam on your RV or in your tow vehicle? Are you glad you have it? If you’re thinking about buying one, Amazon has tons of options here.

Please tell us in the poll below. If you have one and like or dislike it, please leave a comment too so you can help other RVers.

I have one in every vehicle we own (5), after having too many close calls with idiot drivers I told my wife were getting them. A few years later a lady ran a red light, speeding, and T-Boned my F-350 and totaled it. The wreck happened about 10pm with no traffic around, other than the one witness that seen the accident and stayed and gave his statement. I was extremely grateful for the witness but ecstatic we had video footage to prove what happened. You are absolutely nuts if you don’t have them.

I wouldn’t be without one. I live in a major metropolitan area and I’ve lost count of the number of drivers that have come within inches of clipping my front bumper in their haste to get around my class C. I’ve been lucky so far but it’s only a matter of time.

Still on the fence, but would want one that was more than a short loop so the journey would be recorded. Also, might be nice to have a record of all the people driving like crazy folks putting others in danger.

I have one and every vehicle I have has one in it. It has been useful to many. I worked with a guy who had someone run a red light and swore he had the green. He had a friend who was behind him who said that it was green. My co-worker showed the officer the dash cam video. The other driver was cited for the accident and his friend was charged with lying to a law enforcement officer. Had this guy not had a dash cam, he likely would have been cited and his insurance company would have had to pay and his rates go up.

Question is: If I had one would I use it or would it be in a box in the closet? Do I want one or do I need one?

Don’t own one and have no interest in owning one. If I bought a vehicle that had one I would disable it immediately.

But could not get the Readers Poll to show up. Even tried a different browser with the same issue.

Cameras on both and two backup cameras, one to watch the toad and one to watch the road behind.

The way people drive, I want assurances my side is well documented! The MH and all our cars have then. Dirt cheap too!

Get a app for your smart phone to use as a dash camera until you purchase one

In many instances, if you’re in any kind of collision where the other is at fault, people will not take responsibility and just out and out LIE…and it’s usually very hard to get witnesses. It happened to my SIL. Immediately after her serious accident, the one at fault apologized profusely to her, actually admitting it was their fault (which it was)…until the cops showed up. Their story changed. There were two in the car that hit her while she was alone. The passenger corroberated of course, and there were no other witnesses. If she only would’ve had a dashcam! She still has neck and back pain after eight years btw…

Yes! After many near misses I bought what looked like a really neat one with lots of features and a great price. After using it for a year or so it’s phone app stopped updating. I tried to contact the manufacturer for support but they seemed to have vaporized. Having learned a lesson I bought a much more expensive one made by a reputable US based manufacturer which is still serving me well, five years later.

I have one for my motor-coach, car & motorcycle. Nowadays with so many rude, angry and just plain lousy drivers it has become a necessity to protect us from false liability. Having excellent video capture using our mobile phones in addition to the dash cams goes a long ways in documenting anything that is happening around you.

Having a dash cam saved our son from years of legal battles when someone darted in front of him then slammed on their brakes and he hit them. We just got our dash cam before our last trip to protect us in that type of circumstance.

We bought a NuCam dash camera 4 or 5 years ago and have been very pleased with it. The functionality coupled with the price made it irresistible. More information on it can be found on the Road Gear Reviews YouTube channel https://youtu.be/qafPb0aRUIs . In fact, it was this review that we found so compelling as to buy a camera for ourselves. We have several 64 gigabyte memory cards that we use in the camera and thereby were able to retain every mile of the Cassiar Highway from our 2019 trip to Alaska. I really enjoy reliving our drives in the RV by saving and watching our dash camera footage.

I was using my personal dash cam in the dump truck I drive for work when I was involved in an accident on the George Washington bridge. Luckily I had that showing the woman passing on the right after 3 lanes merged into 2. After that my company bought dash cams for the whole fleet! I call it my “crash cam”! 😊

We’ve used a quality Dash Cam for many years. Ours will record in HD and use a 128GB memory card. It will record a few days of travels without writing over previous recordings, but I take out the memory card each evening and move the day’s captured videos to my PC for viewing and culling later.

We use the cam mainly to capture the beautiful views encoutered while driving through scenic areas of the country. This summer we are exploring the Black Hills and the videos the camera has created are awesome: The Badlands, Bear Country, the Granite Spires, and the Wildlife Loop in Custer State Park to name a few. While driving the Wildlife Loop, a herd of Bison ran out in front of us and the Beggin’ Burrows approaced us looking for snacks.

It was great to capture things that pop up unexpectantly. You never know what’s around the next bend, and it’s neat to have the camera capture it all for you.

When we’re not traveling, we just let it write over itself continuously,
