Aligning your tow vehicle’s hitch with a trailer can be challenging and often requires another person to provide guidance while backing up. The iBall Wireless 5.8-GHz Trailer Hitch Camera should make the process much easier. The key components consist of a 3.5-inch color monitor that plugs into a 12-volt power outlet, plus a rechargeable lithium-ion-battery-powered all-weather camera that mounts behind the hitch ball. According to the manufacturer, the iBall will help you line up with both standard and gooseneck trailers. Purchase for $170 from
