There is one thing nice about technology; it's always moving forward. Just like the car commercial that shows a bunch of older folks reminiscing about things they had to do, like getting up to turn the TV channel, then the commercial cuts to a younger man sitting in his car as it parallel parks itself. We used to need the aid of a friend to guide us back when hooking up a trailer. Thanks to Rostra Precision Controls and the RearSight system, we can hook up the trailer by ourselves. As an added bonus, there is no fear of backing our custom-painted truck into anything and damaging it.

The system features a simple installation that only requires you to drill a few holes and hook up three wires; everything else is plug-'n'-play. We took our truck to Al & Ed's Autosound in Huntington Beach, California, to have Hein Nguyen install the system. In just about an hour, we were in the truck, playing with our new monitor. After the initial play time was over, we put the camera system to the test and lined up in front of our trailer. We put the truck in Reverse and started backing up, with our eyes never leaving the screen. As we got closer to the trailer, the tongue came into view and allowed us to line it up perfectly. This is one of those modifications that make your life much easier, and we still have the option of adding another camera. We were thinking of putting one up front to save our painted valance.
