There are dealers that have TTs set up to allow you to try different hitches...

I don't thank so. A camera is a special order option.

ARGH! No, the RAM trim lines frequently do not have a backup camera until you get up to a much higher trim....and those were (at this juncture in my life) too pricey for me...

I can however have one aftermarket installed.....which is what I plan on doing.

Would be nice to have the sensors that beep when stuff is behind etc...ill have to be VERY careful when moving the truck with children around...a backup camera is likely going to be installed very very soon...

that's too bad - my silverado crew cab has the camera in the tailgate, dealer showed me a trick of putting the cable around the latch so it hangs at a 45 degree angle and points at the hitch.

The back up sensors are disabled when the receiver is installed

RVS-770614-213 2 camera system | backup camera system | Rear View Safety

Neato...I can have in one system a camera for the back of TV and TT...

Where do these get power from? I can imagine for the truck, getting in through wiring that operates reverse lights would be easy enough...same for TV?

Oh, this may be for another thread I guess...but what the hell..

Truck screen powers all cameras. Our cameras all have night vision and infrared LEDS for illumination.

The installer might have to run a video cable from front to back. I should take pictures of my setup and put on here.

My camera shows up on my Alpine 8" touch screen double DIN XM DVD iPod head unit when I shift to reverse.

I don't get the post about the tailgate being at a 45 degree angle. I can see the hitch head easily on the screen with the tailgate up.
