Yes - that will work for hitching purposes if you have a TT. But in my case with having a FW you have to lower the tail gate in order for the king pin to not hit the tail gate. So all you are seeing is the ground/pavement.
BTW - our Ram does have a back up camera system installed and it's great for most things, but it is still a two person task to hook up our FW
