Thumbs down

Hi. Been reading the safety thread and thinking about nice to have additions to the PP, when I came across this at my local trailer fixer upper. They had a model and it works as described. The website has both day and night video examples.

Might have a lot of great uses.

We have one and it works great. However we no longer need it and are going to sell it. It can go on either the back of the truck when hitching up or also on the back of the trailer when backing into a site. Real clear vision.

Yeow, at $309 it should dump the tanks automatically too

Actually it is a pretty cool tool and I'm sure useful for what it's intended. I just watch my nickels and dimes and would have a tough time turning loose this much money for it (cough, choke).

Hi Bonnie
There were several people who added REAR VIEW MONITORS to their vehicle AND trailer. For about the same cost they had a camera system and a 4"-6" screen. A rear facing camera on the tow vehicle and a camera on the trailer which activated when hitched. I can't find the thread so mabee we lost it in the crash. Hope some of them jump in, I found it very interesting.

This link sort of tell you all about it. I am sure you will find other sites as well. The night vision really is nice when arrive late at a campground. It also can work on the outside of the trailer to see what is going on outside while you are inside. Problem is with Fiberglass shell it can attatch on the step or frame and make the adjustments as to what angle you want to view.

Donna, you gotta realize that this is a "gotta have" item.

After all, all this about dollars, nickels and dimes is ridiculous. It's just a number.

That is cool and would end those waving arms backing you in the wrong direction

If you go to the manufacture's site, there's video. What I liked is the night vision. It could be used to see what's outside the trailer at night and with a 15' range, it would cover most of the area required.

I'd be interested in the two camera deal. I hunted, but didn't find anything. That's what I had originally thought abot doing.

Could the camera be mounted on the trailer to see the jerk that,s tailgating me? Is there an place to plug in a cord to the 12v outlet?

Right. The setup that Per had looked like some serious stuff. He can use it with just the tow or with the trailer attached. The monitor is large enough to see at a glance. I found that thread very informative.

I bought a wireless license plate camera from the wall mart site. It has a video screen. I mounted Velcro on the TV right in front of the hitch looking down and on the rear of the Casita. I put Velcro on the back of the camera so I can use it to hook up and also when backing the Casita. You have to add 12V plug to the car and Casita to plug in the camera. Whole thing came to less than $100.
