I noticed this device in an ad in the June 2002 issue of Go Boating. It is called the TowCheck. For a mere $449.95, one no longer has to get out to check the relative positions of his trailer tongue to the draw bar and ball on his tow vehicle. Boy, what a relief! www.donnelly.com

Rear facing cameras are good for avoiding large objects, but the depth perception through them is negligible. If you were to use one to hook up there seems a high risk of sticking the trailer tongue through the back of your vehicle.

I doubt you'd stick the tongue through the
back of the vehicle if the camera was mounted
high (and dry) and pointed down.
I just drag the Montauk around. A look of

Go to the X10 website and spend too much $$$ for one of their cameras, then hook it up to your in vehicle DVD player. Don't have an in-vehicle DVD yet, then get a mirror and save a bundle of $$$ on this whole camera deal... A well pointed mirror, on a suction cup can do alot.

Anyone willing to spend $450 on this device shouldn't be allowed to operate a boat or motor vehicle, as they probably indulge in massive amounts of drugs or alcohol!

"For a mere $449.95" was meant to point out the absurdity of this device. I'm not sure how substance abuse plays into this.

Forget the camera for hitching up. I've used the Hitch-Align mirror for years. It works.
