vehicle mounted Thermal camera systems for Mammal watching

Hello, does somebody has experience in thermal cameras that can be mounted on cars for mammalwatching.  I found on the internet this one, but expensive  (ROVIR 640 19mm Vehicle Mounted Thermal PTZ System) : https://www.ultimatenightvision.com/ROVIR-640-19mm-p/rovir-0619.htm

This looks fantastic, but i dont know if there exist same types for lower budget ?

Also i found a much cheaper system : https://nightride.io/products/nightride-x?variant=31472396238891

(Night ride x), but it looks that it directions can not be changed. But here i found a hunters revieuw of it :  https://shwat.com/nightride-thermal-review/

Maybe there exist other systems, so if anybody knows the best for mammalwatching, i like to hear the info.

I like to use it additional with a handheld thermal camera.

thanks

    I know some of the guys in Australia do this – and I think just mount a regular handheld scope.

    Here are some threads that might be useful in case you didn’t see them.
