camera to assist hookup

just bought a Hopkins Smart Hitch camera for my F250. I'm hitching to a FR Sonoma. If you have experience with this I'm all ears.

I can tell you that the factory rear view camera on the f250 works great. I can hitch my Windjammer without any help. Great camera very clear picture, an option you cannot do without.

I installed a Hopkins Smart Hitch on my F150. Nice install and instructions, but it is worthless when attaching the trailer. The Hopkins uses a license plate camera and the Equalizer hitch head hides the view of the ball. The camera works well for seeing behind the truck (when not pulling the trailer), but not so well for hitching up.
