The factory installed Ford Transit backup camera has proven to be a great addition to the vehicle and hooking up a trailer has become a routine task.
The first indication of that came, when I was backing up the van into a short parking spot and towards a parked vehicle. During the last the last foot or so, the owner started honking his horn to get my attention. Afraid that I would bump into him. He was relieved, when I told him afterwards about the camera.

I was pleasantly surprised about the ease of backing up and connecting to the trailer. The already low placed backup camera is close to the hitch/ball and gives a superb close-up view without ever leaving the driver’s seat. The parking sensor that I added inside the rear bumper, makes it an almost failsafe proposition. In fact, it is easier done today without help, than anytime before with the assistance of other people.
If your vehicle is still without a backup camera, I would consider installing one yesterday!
