Wireless back up video?

Not sure if this should go here or in the tow vehicle forum, but I want to buy my brother in law a wireless back up video system to work with his F250. He frequently has to hook it up alone. I've seen several of the wireless video systems. Is there a general consensus as to which one is the best one? Heck, I might buy two of them...

I recently bought this one: Amazon.com: Swift Hitch SH01 Portable Wireless Camera System: Automotive

I see however, that the price has been increased - I paid just under $161, and it's now $199....

I also bought the triangular suction cup fixture from the same vendor that allows you to mount the camera on a window, or other smooth surface that's not magnetic...

I can 'stick' the camera on the back of our AS to check when backing into a campsite, etc...

The receiver has a small screen, but it's quite usable for backing up - I've used several times, works great!

The portability of this unit also allows for other uses that might require visual images in tight quarters...

It will operate for about 3-4 hours on a charge, so the other night I used it to watch some raccoons raid our cat food dish outside!

Has anyone tried this wireless unit?

I haven't seen it before, but maybe it's been around a while. They claim to have improved the interference problem.

I paid $170 for this wireless cam. It works great. It has a magnet I attach to the tailgate of my F350 longbed crew cab truck.
