Wireless Backup Camera?

What is a good wireless camera to add to the back of a trailer? I have looked at a couple and while they say they are wireless I still see that they include wiring for the back up lights?

I would like something with an internal battery to put on the back of the trailer either permanently or just before I am ready to back up.

Something that integrates with my phone would be nice but even if it has a separate screen it would be fine. I just don't want to deal with wires.

Thanks for any info!

RVS-020813 | WiFi Backup Camera System

I installed this a few weeks ago. It works well with my 29 ft Tracer air. Install options are limited due to cord length but I made it work. I actually drilled a hole in my water heater panel which is on the back of the TT and flush mounted it. I then ran wires into rear of TT next to propane line and connected power to parking lights of trailer. The camera gets power by turning the driving lights on. Wifi signal works well and the camera is pretty decent. I can now use my tablet or my phone to see rearview while driving or backing up. Field is view is about 130 degrees.

I actually found it on newegg for $85 when I was looking but now see it went back up to regular price. At the time I figured it was worth a shot for 85 bucks.

I just got the Rampage WiFi wireless cam....used it last weekend and loved it. Not meant to stay on while driving, although I'm sure you could modify it to do so. I just slap it on when hitching up and backing into a site. Can be used for so many other things as well....
