Coming from a FORD owner...It's obvious you started New Years Eve early!

Guys, let's keep this on topic to the OP's question and not highjack with yet another Truck Wars debate. His question should be answerable regardless of the brand of truck driven.

I bought a Tadibrothers rear Back up camera with A 7 inch monitor along with a camera to mount on the rear truck topper on my Ford F-150 And a camera to mount on rear of travel trailer. Unit is wireless. I'm installing this weekend.

If you have a girly man TV, this might not work. But with any good sized "manly" truck, you can easily put 1000+ pounds on a front hitch to move a trailer around at 2mph.
When you say "manly" maybe you meant "Man" like one of these. The top one is very Man-ly

Our FR dealer (also sold TTs). For moving TTs, he converted an old beater truck with a snow plow mount to hold a hitch ball far enough in front of the truck that he could see the hitch ball and connect to a TT without getting out of the truck. The snow plow raise/lower mechanism would raise/lower the hitch ball. For moving the TT around his yard, he did not bother lock the hitch to the ball.
