I just installed on my Ram 1500 quad cab 6. 5 foot box, 2013. It works great, I had a peak wireless before and it is a piece of junk, jittery picture cutting out all the time not good at all. The Smart hitch is also very easy to install, it is a wired system but it is plug and play biggest problem was running the wire front to back but if you follow the frame plenty of places to cable tie to and the instructions are wrong about size to drill hole through firewall it takes about a 7/16 to allow the plug through to monitor there was just enough wire to get to the cab console, if you have a crewcab or quad cab long box you will need to get an extender cable from Hopkins direct as cable will be to short to install. The camera and sensors are very easy to adjust the whole install took me about 1 .5 hrs. Worked great right out of the box, don't waste your time on getting a wireless that just barely work. The time I took was to wrap wires and cables in a plastic duct all the way from front to back if you don't do this it will take about 1 hr. or less to install. It doesn't come with any cable ties or the split loom duct. I priced a similar wired system out at a truck accessories store and a RV parts shop one close to this would cost $300- 450. installed, not installed between $200-305. So this is a good price deal for the do it yourself type of person it is very easy to install and setup.

This back-up camera is awesome. I had a cheep one on my F-150 before I got my Smart hitch camera. The smart hitch camera was so easy to install I couldn't believe it. Everything just plugged in. The picture is very clear at night and in the day. My wife used to get real nervous helping me hook up our trailer, now I do it all by myself. The camera works great in both the trailer hitch mode or as a back-up camera. Great Price too. I would recommend it to anyone.

Installed system in less than 1 hour in Ford F-150 Super Cab 5 1/2 foot bed! Mounted screen on top of dash with plenty of cable to spare. Camera and sensor alarm works great! My RV dealer wanted to charge 3 hours labor at $105/hr. Kit was very easy to install yourself. Hitching to trailer is so much easier now. No more twisting my head around and trying to guess if I am aligned properly.
