A must for 5th Wheel Operations,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Esky EC170-08 100% Waterproof Vehicle Car Rear View Backup Camera High-definition CCD 170 Degree Viewing Angle - Rearview Camera (Electronics)
These are great little cameras when used in conjunction with Fifth wheel travel trailers. I have installed one of these on the last two units I've owned and they have work flawlessly.Yes you have to run power to the camera and coax cable to the cab but when you consider the cost difference over a wireless system, I saved about $700 for a days work.
These cameras make backing solo into camp sites a very easy task, and it's also good to see if alouf people are walking behind your rig (as they will do) as you try to back down (had this Happen).
I found it reassuring to see out the back when changing lanes during heavy traffic but fundamentally rely on mirrors, it just a good back check.
A small 6 to 7" monitor works great on the dash to make the system complete.
