When hooking up your travel trailer or toy hauler, unless you’re careful, you may end up with dents or scratches on the back of your truck or your truck’s bumper. Even if you have someone helping, if that person doesn’t tell you to stop quickly enough — BAM!
You can avoid the hassles of hitching up your RV by adding a backup camera system to your truck. The VisionStat Portable Camera and Monitor uses a magnet to mount to your tailgate so that you can move the camera anywhere you want it, then remove it to travel.
Use a camera or other backup system to help keep your truck from getting dented or scratched with a trailer hitch.
When you are not using the camera to hitch up your toy hauler or travel trailer, you can use it to monitor valuable cargo in your vehicles or as a temporary security camera. The VisionStat uses a 2.4-inch LCD color screen as its wireless handheld monitor. The screen can toggle between reverse image or a normal image, making it easier to back up to your RV. The VisionStat also has night vision capabilities so that you can hitch up after dark if you decide to drive throughout the night. The night vision capabilities also allow you to monitor your stuff at night.
If you don’t feel you need a camera to help you hook up your trailer, but would feel safer with some sort of guide, especially if you have to hook up by yourself, consider the magnetic hitch alignment kit. The kit has two brightly colored ball on top of telescoping guides. You can place the guides directly on the trailer hitch ball and receiver so that you can see where to line up the trailer with the truck. You’ll be able to hook the RV up to the truck the first time by yourself. When you’re hooked up, remove the guides and store them in the RV so that you have them next time you need to hook up.
