    Hey anyone ever put a camera on your trailer? I have one on my truck which works wonderful for hooking the boat to the truck but I was thinking how much better a camera on the trailer would be when I'm backing the boat into my driveway and other places. If you have done it suggestions as to a model of camera would be most helpful and how it works for you.

    I mounted my gopro wifi with a suction to my trailer and then used my phone connected over wifi to the gopro as the display. That worked fine for me.

    I looked at that but I was thinking a more permanent solution that I could use while driving as well. The GoPro's battery won't last that long.

    Check this out, about 2/3rds down on the first page.

    You can get systems on ebay for $150 to $500 depending on how many cameras you want.

    The cameras are always on, never overheat, water proof.

    I recommend the wired versions over wireless, reliable instant connection, no noise.

    @Ronnie nice mods. I did a search in the forum before I posted my question but for some reason yours didn't come up. What model/manufacturer did you go with for your camera? How long have you had it?

    @Ronnie thanks for the link. I'm really wanting to get one. I just have to figure out how to attach it to the newer shorelander trailer. The middle has the brake light and not much space

    No problem on the link. I installed my trailer camera at the center of the rear cross support, it should be ok there for a single engine boat as well but to be safe i would consider mounting it under or to the right rear bunk (right as opposed to left because the tow vehicle driver already sits on the left side).
