I received the camera and had Camping World install it and for this price I am very pleased with the quality and ease of operations of the camera. I will definitely recommend this camera to my RV friends.

I just finished installing the Smart Hitch Camera on my 07' Ford F150 Super Crew. The camera works as advertised. However, there were a few issues with the installation. It was necessary to grind off a corner of the right sensor mount in order to accommodate tire access for lowering the spare. That sensor also partially covers the license plate expiration tab and that may cause an issue with some law enforcement folks when you are not towing. Other than that it went well.

This camera is the best for, one, the price and second, for the quality. I just installed this camera in less than 1 hr. The install was so simple for any level of experience, just follow the directions or view the YouTube videos. The quality of clarity on the screen is amazing! I contacted the manufacture because I installed this camera on a 2010 Ford F150 Crew Cab and was concerned the length of the cable that came in the box and they sent me 2 additional cables at no charge! Wow what a great unit, compared to online searches that cost from $300 to $600 for a backup camera that didn't even compare to the Hopkins camera. I would highly recommend this unit for hitching your trailer, or just using as a safety backup camera. It is so precise--that amazed me. The viewing is incredible on the screen.

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.

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.

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.
