I know some of you have used the Hitch mounted carriers so please weigh in on how they affected the visibility of the rear camera. Thanks so much.
I very much doubt it. The rear-view camera on an Interstate has a fisheye lens to give a wide-angle view. It's also mounted above the rear doors, up by the middle brake light. The box should be visible at the bottom of the camera monitor, but not significantly block the view.
I found that very handy when using a hitch-mount bike rack; I could check that the bikes were still secure at a glance, just by looking at the monitor.
