An off the wall suggestion (from my son last year).

Use Facetime on Apple phones, one on the back of the truck or in DW's hands. One in the truck. Then watch the screen on the one in the truck as you back up.

If you're interested in the Voyager products, I can get you pricing and info. We typically sell the wireless systems with WiSight, but sounds like a wired setup, may be more up your alley.

For those of you who use a camera to assist in backing up your TT, do you find it significantly improves your skill in backing into your storage or CG site?

get a double din stereo ( if your dash is large enough) with back up camera. the camera mounts to the top of you license plate so easy enough to see he ball hitch. the camera's are nice depending on which one you buy. you can also find a few that will support two camera's. they connect to your reverse light wire but you can toggle them on an off. I bought one and have taken coaxial cable with rca ends to hard wire it through the fiver and connects beside the 7 pole connection.

I know you asked about a camera, but I'm a keep it simple guy. These seem like they would work well.

I have these and they work. My setup for the ball socket is curved so they are finicky to get right. Sometimes that one will fall off. The other issue is getting both of them at the right height. I marked the stems with a Sharpy so its a no brainer.

Buy it at Harbor Freight when its on sale for about $10.
