Back up Camera ... Hitching Trailer

Need a new inexpensive back up camera to hitch trailer when doing it alone. Anyone have experience or comments about the "Rampage 7710 Portable WiFi Back-Up Camera" that works with a tablet or Android Phone?

I bought a I Ball several years ago just attach to tail gate as it is magnetized has a plug in receiver and is wireless. Worked good and you just remove camera when done hooking up. Later RJD

This is what we use - they left over from our TT days. With that fold cover you couldn't see the 5th wheel hitch. Held in place with magnets. Bought them from Camping World.

I don't have experience with the unit in question, but the factory camera on my Ram makes backing the ball under the hitch a breeze. I always have done this by myself and before I would get out 2 or 3 times getting it there. now I can put it right there every time.

Well I'd say his truck is a little out dated for a factory back up camera. Later RJD

When we had a tt, I mounted a big mirror on the tongue and it worked great.

I bought a wireless camera from amazon for $130 and I love it!! I back the ball under the hitch on the first try! Just get out of truck once to make sure trailer hitch is high enough and thats it.
