Motorhome owners know that changing lanes can be tricky, not to mention backing up and otherwise maneuvering a 40-foot coach while avoiding obstacles. The new aftermarket Blind Spot Detection System from Goshers.com, a Mason Hill Company, is one option to lessen the worry of an accident while on the road. Designed for RVs and other large vehicles, the Blind Spot Detection System is not a camera or mirror system. It uses radar-like sensors, which are installed on the rear bumper or on the sides of longer motorhomes. Two LED indictors are included for installation on the inside of the vehicle for easy viewing by the driver. When a vehicle is in the driver’s blind spot, the corresponding LED indictor will light up. An alarm unit is also included for an audible warning of a vehicle in your blind spot.
The company said the system could be installed by an advanced do-it-yourselfer, but recommends professional installation by a local car stereo installer. The system is priced at $249.99 and is available online.
