Backup Video Makes Hitching Up Easy
Here's a cheap and easy way to make your own backup video which doubles as a great way to hitch up trailers behind cars and trucks.
  Duane Thies, Winside, Neb., bought an inexpensive wireless camera from Harbor Freight & Salvage (www.harborfreight.com; ph 805-388-3000). He mounted the small camera, which is on a mounting strap that's designed to fit existing screws on a license plate, on a "stiff hinge" at the back of his truck. Then he mounted the small monitor receiver on the dash inside the pickup. He can angle the camera downward to show the ball on his receiver hitch for easy hookups, or point it straight back for rear visibility when backing up.
  "It makes it easy to get the ball lined up the first time every time," he says.
  The wireless camera and monitor sell for less than $100. It could be mounted easily on back of a combine, big tractor, or even on the back of big wagons or implements.
