Default Back UP Cameras

Does anybody use a back up camera when hooking up to your trailer,if so do you think its worth the time and money to put one in my truck?

They are starting to get quite popular. We are installing more of them than I ever thought we would.

Believe it or not, cameras for gooseneck hitches seem to be more popular in our area.

Kit comes with a camera that mounts across the 2 top license plate bolts. The 3 inch screen is mounted on my visor. When I need to use it I just flip the visor down and when the truck is put in reverse the camera automatically comes on. Took about an 1 1/2 hours to install in a Suburban by myself. Now I can back right up to the ball first time everytime!!!
