I was thinking about the same thing, I came across in a local bicycle shop an odometer with a remote pickup that attaches to the wheel and the receiver or counter could be installed on the inside of the camper. I dont know how accurate this would be and if it would count hiway speed I haven't researched into yet but I would like to know distanced the tear traveled and to incorporate it into my build.
JUST A THOUGHT!

If the pickup is mounted to the chassis, the wheel bounce might affect the pickup as the magnet will change position when the wheel moves up and down. Personally, I'd just keep a log from the tow vehicle's trip odometer.
