A friend had recently shown me footage of a “near miss” involving his motorhome and a car. For what ever reason, the car suddenly appeared in front of him, pointing the wrong way on a roundabout. The footage was captured and recorded, so I set about acquiring a similar motorhome dash cam.

Despite its low price, this dash cam features date and time stamp, audio on/off and has dual lenses. This enables the user to record either the forward facing motion, the rear action (!) or both at the same time. In order to test the dash cam and the quality of the recordings, I have carried out this test with the motorhome dash cam recording in forward facing mode only. I left the “audio on” too. Apologies for the K D Lang!

The video below shows the quality of footage available, which for a £25 or so price, is pretty good.

This dash cam has its on battery built-in. This is charged through a connection to a 12 volt supply – a cigarette lighter type. A suction cup holds the dash cam to the windscreen. The charger is supplied.

The data is captured on a micro card, so you’ll then (maybe) need an adaptor to transfer files from the micro card to your laptop. The data card was not supplied. The purpose of this dash cam is to hopefully record scenic mountain passes in Switzerland and Italy etc. You will recall we tried this with a hand-held camera, but the cameraman was all over the place! This dash cam cost about £25.00 including postage, but the price seems to vary slightly everyday!

Where to buy a motorhome dash cam

In summary, for what it cost, it is a good piece of kit. You can find more information and order by clicking the image above.
