After towing hundreds of thousands of kilometres, I have never once felt the need for a backup camera.
That said, I have used the ones on a vehicle for hooking up to the trailer.
If they are used as a novelty thing, then I see no harm in them, but if people rely on them to see behind them, especially when driving, I do have a concern. If there is someone coming up behind me when driving, I am always fully aware of them, as I constantly monitor my mirrors out of the corner of my eye, and get a much broader view than a camera would ever provide. I have never had a vehicle behind me that I could not see in my mirrors, even if they were tailgating.
So, no harm in having one at all, I know a couple people that have them, both are gadget nuts. Just don't rely on them for driving decisions is all.
