As long as I can remember I’ve always loved the water. As a child I looked forward to spending every summer with my family at the lake. Riding in the boat, swimming in the water and eating ice cream on the dock. I’m from the Midwest, we were always outside. Looking back on it, those summers were pretty lo-tech.
I’m the last of 4 children (All boys, sorry, Mom!) so it was always a circus getting us together in the car for anything. We took turns helping my Dad guide the SUV to the hitch.
“A little more, a little more, a bit more, a tiny bit more, OK STOP! You all heard me, I said stop!”
Somewhere in the back in my mind I knew that there must be a better way. And there is.
Our RVS-83112 Wireless Hitch Camera takes all the guess work out of hitching for a faster and safer experience. The magnetic camera simply connects to the back of the vehicle and the 3.5” monitor plugs straight into the cigarette lighter. Wireless connectivity provides 70ft of uninterrupted connection.
You have another hitching option. We very recently introduced the RVS-83112-WiFi WiFi Hitch Camera. The idea is very similar, place the magnetic camera onto the vehicle to assist with hitching. However, this model is powered by a rechargeable battery and the footage is viewed with your smartphone. The camera connects via WiFi with your mobile device, allowing you to see the camera view on your device’s screen. The system’s WiFi signal provides up to 50ft of uninterrupted connection. You easily record video and still images straight to your device. You don’t need a pre-existing WiFi or internet connection for this to work. The transmitter creates a WiFi network that will work anywhere.
Using either of these hitch cameras would have made life a lot easier. My Dad wasn’t terrible at hitching, but this technology would make the experience a lot more efficient. Faster, safer hitching means more time at the lake. It’s science.
