Expert Reply:

The camera angle of the K-Source Vision System Backup Camera # KSVS-8 that you referenced can be pointed pretty far down but it really depends on the location of the license plate relative to the hitch, if there's a portion of the bumper that would get in the way, and the length of your ball mount etc. If you check out the picture I attached you can see the camera pointed down pretty far which would capture the hitch ball on the monitor but it looks like the step bumper would interfere.

The Swift Hitch part # 04928 is probably the best overall solution if hitch alignment is your goal. It can mount in an easier location for alignment like what you see in the second picture I attached.
