I picked up a pretty inexpensive back up camera from Etrailer -its made by Hopkins? I think, that I installed myself on the dash - yup it was that easy! LOL . Has the visual hitch guides and a little beep that increases the closer you get to an object. Not only great for hitching up but also when fitting into tight parking spots.
