Both systems will offer full-surround, 360-degree views with different feature levels, such as continuous video recording, remote control surveillance, vehicle diagnostic codes and high definition imaging. Also with the addition of WiFi technology, there is the opportunity for special alerts and off-site remote access to the camera system and its recordings.

Each camera system also uses multiple camera angles to create a 360-degree, bird's eye view of the coach to enhance driver safety and increase coach security.

"We continue to search for innovative technologies that enhance the experience and safety of owning a luxury RV," REV Group Director of Product Development Jamie Buckmeier says. "Adding a 360-camera is just another step in that process."

REV Recreation Group invites dealers to visit their display in Booth 1401 in the South Wing of the Kentucky Expo Center. In addition to the REV RV sales team, dealers can meet with the REV product development team to learn more about REV's latest integration and product enhancements.
