    Default Easiest way to hook up trailer

    I want to share a product that I have used many times and it works GREAT!

    Got it for Xmas last year and one of the best and most useful gifts I ever received. Monitor started acting up and returned it to mfg, replaced it and returned to me in 1 week.

    Works for anything you can't see, also can be used for security camera and works well at night.

    "Well, I'll be a Monkey's Uncle"! That is truly a unique device. Implementing that method, most certainly reduces the guesswork and is a great improvement over the "trial and error" system. Thanks for posting.

    Looks like it could be handy but I have never really found trailer hook up difficult.

    You have to put the device on which is one extra trip out of the cab already.

    I rarely get out more than once without a camera.

    Same on my Nissan Titan. I love it. Nice be display about 8" across on the nav screen anytime its in reverse.

    This is a nice product though for someone whos truck does not have a camera. Sounds like the customer support is also A+.

    I've used a piece of 1/2" plastic pipe stuck in a pipe cap (attached to the trailer coupler) for years! Cheap & works great as a guide. When the trailer is hooked on, the pipe slips into a bigger pipe on the trailer tongue.

    My new SUV has a backup camera that displays in the rear view mirror, and boy does it make hitching up easy. It has a downward view, and I can watch the trailer hitch come into position over the ball. Real nice. I don't know how I ever lived without it!
