Back up camera

I installed the Peak camera on my rear license plate and it works great.

I had to splice one of the wires to get closer to the monitor to prevent the,picture from breaking up. I also changed my plate bolts to make it harder for someone to steal my camera.


I also painted my ball hitch yellow to make it easier to see.


Works great for me.

I put a strip of white electrical tape centered on the stinger probe and centered on the ProPride receiver opening. The truck's backup camera lets me align the connection easily. I still get out to check elevations between the stinger and ProPride open.

I also installed the Voyager backup camera above the rear window on the trailer and got power from the rear roof locker lights. The dash Voyager receiver display works well wirelessly.

Robert, is that from the back of your trailer or the back of your vehicle?

Back up camera

Nice setup.

You might want to buy the bolts from Auto Zone that requires a special wench to remove your camera.


I still haven't settled on a camera for the rear of the trailer to be used while on the road or backing into a camp site.


I think it would be good to use a GoPro camera. I have been trying to convince myself I need one of those guys to replace my IPhone picture taking skills. Serving double duty as a backup camera could close the deal. I know they have WIFI and preview mode but don't really know if it would work without issues.

The GoPro has a delay of a couple of seconds, even when not shooting. Makes it difficult to use as a backup camera - I had the same idea, but even my new Hero 3 isn't as fast as it would need to be.

Check the gopro forums for more info on this if you're interested.

Here is how we mounted the Voyager on the rear of our Airstream. the 12 volt Power came from the light above the street side twin bed. The wireless signal works flawlessly to the display in the truck.

I never really thought about someone stealing the camera.
It is pretty inconspicuous. The trailer is generally either at home or in a campground or rolling. I'm sure at home or in a campground or in a Cracker Barrel parking lot a thief would find something better to steal, and if he wants it, let him have it easy, so he don't tear nothin' up!

I believe the Voyager camera is useless without it's linked display, except to be a paper weight on a desk.

SWift hitch's back up camera is now digital and this has all but eliminated the previous interference from surrounding electronics. The only downside is that for some reason the screen has to be tilted slightly back for best picture resolution (Don't ask me how i know).

Switzerland. I just ordered the Voyager with a companion receiver allowing me to use a different display, which will be the Garmin 760 LMT. I like your install, very clean,
My question is how did you wire the camera?
