Default rear video camera

The camera in my tailgate works great for hooking up but isn't much use once the trailer is connected. Has anyone used a camera that can be mounted to the transom?

I thought the idea was to help backing up to a trailer.

but seeing behind the trailer when backing would be very useful


I have a nightmare windie driveway to back up off a private drive
I would like this too
a good use for one of the rocker aux switches on my dash to switch to a second camera
power off the lightin gcircuit and wireless video signal would be the best. i fthat exists.

Go to Ebay motors RV/Trailer Parts section. Get a wireless system and have one camera with suction cups or mount it permanant. Most are water proof so you could install it in the trailer.

i've got that system, and while it works well for the back of the pickup, i dont think the signal is strong enough to work if mounted to the back of the boat trailer. a wired system would no doubt work best.
