Excellent System Package
By Harold, June 20, 2014
After ordering the package, I called Hopkins support and they sent me the extensions required for my truck. I was very pleased with the support staff. I installed this system on my 2008 Dodge 2500 MegaCab in just over an hour. I have a custom rear bumper which extends just short of 10" out from the license plate and I was apprehensive whether it would work or not. This system was so very easy to install and works extremely well. The only reason that I give is 4 stars is that the mounting system of the monitor limited me as to where/how I could mount the monitor in the Dodge cab. Other than that, I wish that I had bought this system a long time ago
Camping World Purchase
By John Heyd, June 12, 2014
Saw the back up camera in the Camping World catalog. Purchased the set up and had them install it for $39 - great deal. Works wonderful on my 2006 F-150 Crew Cab with the 6.5 ft. box. Cable was a little short for a top mount but the guys placed the screen in the lower left corner of the dash which is perfect for my needs. This is a great product and will probably save a few arguments with my wife.

I just completed a install in less than 1 Hr on my 2010 Ford F150 Crew cab. Just followed the directions and it was extremely easy. I did contact Hopkins Support and the sent me out free of charge 2 extra length of cables. This camera is awesome work great for tow hookup and also great when normal backups. Highly recommend this unit. Install easy for any novice. Lovin it.
Just wired up!

I got this on sale for a great price. I wired it to a 2013 F-150 Crew Cab 5'5" box. It is amazing that there is nothing to splice and it connects very simply with existing trailer jack. It is a T-adapter that wires between the truck and the connector so both of your trailer pins still work perfectly. I had just enough wire to run the monitor on the driver side dash directly out the firewall and to the rear of the vehicle. If you have a longer vehicle you will probably be short on cable. The monitor comes on when you put the vehicle in reverse and has a great picture on the screen. I had it all wired and adjusted in 1 hour being very picky about wiring and doing it on my back in the driveway! Great product.
Wish these had come out years ago.

I just installed this on a 10' F-150 crew, it works as good as any factory installed sensor/back up camera system. It took about 30 minutes and it was up and running. Love it!
Perfect for Towing and Everyday Use!!!!!

The camera installation at first scared me because I have a 2013 Ram and Dodge has always had a different wire harness than Chevy or Ford but It was a snap.
The camera and proximity sensors mount like any other license plate bracket so that was really easy.
The supplied Plug connectors is what worried me but I just unplugged the factory plug from vehicle 7 way plug and plugged in the T-Connector which powered the camera and sensors. (no wires for me to cut)
Then I just ran the wires under the truck along the frame until I found an entry way into the cab of the vehicle. I than ran the wire under the trim to up under the dash to an exit point that was close to the camera.
The camera screen is just the right size and being a full color screen helps a lot. The proximity sensors work great to let you know when you are too close to something.
I rate this product 5 out of 5 stars for ease of installation, quality and easy to use.
