Just add an aftermarket camera above the license plate portion like it was in the 6th gen if you remove the factory spoiler. What's the main concern you're having?

The 19s have 2 cameras , one in the spoiler and one by the license plate so you can’t move the one from the spoiler to the other spot

Well... why you need two? They do both record your rear, right? You can just retrofit the spoiler one above the license plate as well right next to the camera if you still need both installed.

The two cameras serve different purposes. The first is a backup camera that gives a better view of/from the rear bumper, and the other is for the rear view mirror in the cabin which can now act as a camera in the '19 model year.

To the OP - as far as I know, none of the aftermarket vendors have offered a solution to this, so I think you would be on your own to retrofit the spoiler camera into your new addition. I think this would be easier for some, such as the blade spoilers - less likely with a ZL1 style spoiler.

I'm sure if you give it another few more months, all the newer kits for 2019 models will come out on the market.

I'm hearing the camera was moved into the shark fin antenna for 2020. You might even want to do that instead.

Thanks for the promising info, although it would likely be awhile before they start offering the shark fin camera in the after market... and I want to get rid of the OEM spoiler pronto. Does anyone know if the mounting holes on the spoiler for 2019 are identical to previous years? I would think so, but just trying to make sure.

Could you please update us on this?
Any other vendors working on a 2019 "camera spoiler" alternative? Really not a fan of the stock spoiler on my ZL1.
