my query is a lot less techie than the one raised by steve under this general heading early.
basically, I would like to fit an audible reversing aid to a T4.
I've checked various sites and find that only Bulldog and Conrad Anderson have equipment that covers over a metre in depth.
and CA is a lot cheaper than Bulldog.
I simply want something to make a sound as we reverse. don't want meter readings or cameras. but we have a bike rack on the back and I can not get CA to tell me whether their cheaper system which does what we want will treat the bike rack as an obstacle or will ignore it because of its height and simply read out parallel to the road.
Their options include the MW100 and 200, or more expensive PP2 or MW600 which they recommend for use with racks, but which include a dash readout.
Does anyone have any experience of these systems?
I would also need an auto electrician I guess to fit, the plan being that I present hubby with the finished version - and I don't understand electricity so don't fancy fitting myself! :?
I could go to local MH dealers but they only fit Bulldog apparently, and won't comment on CA,
Bulldog seems a lot more expensive -so, do you get what you pay for or are the pricey systems ott

Any advisers out there?

My neighbour had one fitted up your way at Marquis, it couldnt have cost a lot cos he wont spend money.
Three sensors on back bumber and a sound emitter in cab dependant on sound he knows location of whatevers behind him and the sound isnt objectionable, might be worth going for a look then shopping round for prices etc with four motorhome dealers in the area you should get some competitive prices :D

They are all quoting about £195-£200, including TB Turbo in Lancaster.
Have used Marquis in the past, and would go again, [they have the best coffee shop apart from anything else] just that when you check out base prices the labour / fitting element seems to double + cost of equipment - but I suppose that's about par for the course. :cry:
