My back up camera system included two cameras, a 5" monitor, and the cabling to go between it all, including a flexible cable for attaching the trailer camera to the tow vehicle. All from Rear View Safety. They no longer have the 5" monitor which was the perfect size for my RAV4.

I've been using it for 2 1/2 years and am happy with the choice.

@ Karen - Thanks! Hard to think up "punny " names that are original. I lived in France as a youngster so it honors the second language of Canada and my childhood language!

Hi, here's an idea which i thought about using when i'm hooking up the trailer by myself that could work for you. Check it out.

For hitching up our volvo has a backup camera that has worked well for hooking up.

As for backing into a camp site we figure to use : Motorola MR350TPR
Also has weather and useful when the family wanders off in different directions

A lot of people brought FRS radios to the Pacific National Exhibition in Vancouver. A lot.
It was fun listening.
"Mom, where are you"?
"We're at the ferris wheel" ( along with 200 other people )
"Who are you"?
"Debbie"
"Huh"?
"We're on this channel".
"Mom, I have to pee".

Entertaining, if not very useful when you have hundreds of people using them in a small area, none understanding radio protocol.

I've got five of them, but I find it easiest to just get out of the RAV, have a look, and explain what I need from my helper.

I find it is easier to get out, have a look, and then just do it myself.

Me too! But, then again as a single traveler... if I don't do it by myself it doesn't get done.
