If you have, let me know about the difficulty, brand used, etc. Thinking about installing one on my pickup to make hookup of the boat trailer easier. Thanks.

I had one for a while. Easy to install, BUT the lens of the camera will do just like headlights after about 2 years. And the one I had had very poor customer service. They did not have a phone, just an e-mail and they very rarely answered. Now I'm not going to say all the manufactures are like that, just check it out before buying.
I would love to have another, but it will have to have a glass lens.

I installed one on an old truck. Worked great. It was a requirement for my 08 I bought new. Bought my son one for his for Christmas.

Bought a F150 that has it installed and I told my wife before I bought it I would not add that option as I thought it was not worth it.

WRONG. I like it a lot. That plus the ding-ding warning could pay for itself if it keeps you from backing into a car you don't see.

Or FATTY. Oh the cranage

I have a Pioneer AVIC stereo with video screen. I bought an after-market camera and hooked it up myself. was super easy. Now that I ave a boat, it is an absolute necessity. Also can look at my hitch and bow while I'm flying dow the road just to get a visual check of the strap and safety chains.

Getchya one.

the wireless ones run around 125-150.00 and are really nice.

I have put in several, 7" TFT monitor and up to 3 cameras per monitor. I am happy with the results. 1 system has been in about 5 years. I have them on pickups, flatbeds, motorhomes and horse trailers. Feel free to pm me if you would like details.
