Recommended Backup Camera For Trailer Pulled By Ford F-150


Do you offer any trailer back up camera systems that will work with the factory monitor in the new Ford F150s?


Expert Reply:

I have a great solution for you, however, there is not a backup camera available that can plug into the factory monitor on the F150. Your best bet is going to be the Rear View Safety Backup Camera System with Trailer Tow Quick Connect Kit # RVS-770613-213. This is an excellent system to mount on the back of a trailer and offers 130-degree view along with night vision. A nice 7" monitor is included that has a simple button layout. A 66 foot cable is included for the camera, and a 22 foot cable is included for the monitor; this will ensure you have plenty of cable to work with on a long trailer or camper. This system will tap into the running light circuit of your trailer so that you can turn on the camera at any time. I prefer this wired camera over the wireless camera, that way you will never run into any connection issues.

If you prefer the wireless method, go with VueSMART RV and Trailer Backup Camera Wireless # HM34FR. This system offers a 155-degree view along with LED lights surrounding the camera allowing for night vision. The Hopkins Towing Solutions mobile app is required and lets you use any smart phone as a monitor. This system has a wireless range of 50 feet. You could install this anywhere on the back of your truck or trailer; the wires will tap into the running lights so that you can turn on the camera whenever you'd like. Use Extra Wire # 10-2-1 if you need extra wire to be ran to your trailer's light wiring.

I have attached demonstration videos for these two systems.
