Wow - The VueSmartRV and Trailer Backup Camera is exactly what I needed! It’s like a Body-cam for my highwall popup trailer. I cannot see behind the trailer at all, when in reverse. This saves me from having to get out to assess and reassess my surroundings. The WiFi signal easily connects to my Moto Z2 (Android) phone through the Hopkins Towing Solutions App. What I like about the camera is that it provides a clear picture of the view behind my popup and there’s no delay or choppiness in its motion. I reversed the bracket so that the marker light is located under the camera. In my case, I benefit most from such a setup since my spare tire blocks the lower portion of my field of view on the screen.

Bought this to mount on an older Roadtrek RV. The hardest part of the installation was figuring out how to get power to it. That solved, the camera is brilliant. WiFi range is outstanding. At 50 yards out I still had 3 out of 4 bars and the picture was still fine. I'm thinking about mounting another one on the back of my equipment hauler.

Simple, quick and easy installation. Connect to the marker light wiring, mount with the provided bracket that fit perfectly under existing marker lamp and download the app to use. Registration process was a bit quirky else it easy to use.

Camera worked as described and installed easily where the previous Cana was and was able to use existing wires to the trailer, goes on and off with the running lights..

This seems like a decent product overall, but I regret this purchase for several reasons: 1) This camera is not really designed for mounting to a teardrop trailer. The curvature of the back of the trailer makes it impossible to tilt the camera down enough to see anything close to the trailer bumper. I have a great view of the neighbor's houses across the street, though. I have not tried actually backing up with it yet, but because I can't see anything near the bumper, I'm not sure how effective this will be for me when trying to back up. 2) The bracket is really for the larger incandescent running lights of years past; my 2021 trailer has LED lights, which are smaller. There are two issues here: First, to prevent the camera from blocking the smaller running light as viewed from the road, I installed the bracket so the camera is ABOVE the running light. This made the angle mentioned in #1 above a tiny bit worse. Second, the smaller light doesn't fully cover the openings in the bracket -- so water can collect there. I'll fill it with Butyl, but I wish I had installed the bracket facing down. Now I've already screwed into the RV, so I won't be changing that. 3) This may not be an issue in practice, but parked in my neighborhood I have issues with the video signal. This may not be an issue out in the wild where there are fewer WiFi networks. I can connect to the camera's WiFi, but the video can be very choppy. What is absolutely alarming, though, is that the video can stop entirely and the app won't tell you it lost signal. This is bad -- in testing this, it stopped while I was backing up and I didn't notice for several seconds that the image wasn't changing (I wasn't watching it constantly, as I was trusting my mirrors). I almost backed into a street sign. 4) Like other reviewers, I am aghast at their policy to turn on the white backup lights each time the camera turns on. These lights shine right down on the cars behind me, and I don't need to remind you that you can't have non-standard lights on your vehicle -- I'm inviting a citation from law enforecement. You can turn the lights off via the app, but I would need to do this EVERY TIME I TURN ON THE TOW VEHICLE'S HEADLIGHTS... and it takes time to connect to WiFi, disable the lights, then disconnect again. If I forget, I'm in trouble. Why didn't they just make the camera work with infrared lights that wouldn't bother anyone?

Although I have not installed the unit on the trailer yet due to weather, I did ru a test with a temporary connection. The unit is impressive. Good picture quality and features. Good price. It will be installed on my cargo trailer. I expect i will not only use it for baking up assistance but, also help driving to insure safer lae changing, etc. My installation to be somewhat unique as the tailgate door leave little room to the roof. I have the installation well planned. Also I will provide a 12 volt weatherproof socket. Also provide a plug on the camera. With those additions I can remove the camera easily when not used for some time or during prolonged bad weather.

Good camera, with a couple issues. I received my camera and went to install it. I had a little less space than I needed but I made it work and install was fairly easy. As soon as I tried to turn the camera on I came to the realization (should have realized sooner) that the camera will only come on when the lights are on. No big deal for me as I will only use this when backing into a parking spot so I can just turn the lights on to use it. However, one issue that really bugs me is that the bright white LED lights come on when it powers up. This is a problem because if you have automatic lights on your vehicle, you can start driving in the daytime and the camera is off. Once it becomes dark, the lights turn on and therefore the camera as well. You then have bright white LED lights shining at any vehicles behind you. You can turn it off in the app, but you have to remember to do it when your lights come on. To me, this is a huge mistake and I am debating switching cameras just to avoid this.

Camera has clear images in the day. At night will need extra light bar mounted on the camper The camera has two lights settings, but not enough lighting for camera to see in dark areas beyond 10 feet. Over all you can record video on to your phone and take pictures. I have a slide in camper in the bed of truck. So I can watch my boat from my cell phone at night since I do not have any windows on the back of camper to see my boat. Without getting up and opening the door.

Only gave it 2 stars mostly due to liking the idea behind its operation of using Wi-Fi to send it video to a phone app but this device has a major design flaw that even the mfg. amits and stated, "It's in the design to operate this way". The design flaw I am speaking of is when the camera is power on, which happens each time your RV's parking lights come on as designed in newer trailers rear camera power system, the outer ring of LED lights come on at 50% brightness. The mfg. stats they designed it that way so you would know the camera came on and if you do not want the lights on then you can turn it off thru their app. (True you can cycle it thru Off, 50%, or full bright) but WHY have it come on by default and stay on just to indicate the unit came on. I can just see myself driving down the freeway late one night, not really thinking that my parking lights have come on, (because it is now dark and my truck is automatic that way), and I've just driving more that and hour with my camera's light on shining on all the cars behind me because I was not out behind my trailer at that time to see my camera had come on! Now I would think this would not be a bad idea if I had the camera wired into my "Back-up Lights" where the only time I would even care if the camera came on is when I am using it to BACK-UP BUT, the way you are to install/wire this camera into your trailer means the camera can come on with its 50% light even if you are not needing to use it. Now I know a lot of us do not do much towing at night if we can help it but still. Also, I cannot say all bad things about this nice camera. Its picture is clear, operation is quick, (just need to connect your Wi-Fi to it) and to have distance lines overlay toggle on/off with a button, it offers an inexpensive wireless backup solution with plenty of options. Have not had a change to check its Wi-Fi range yet. Truth be said, I was going to return it due to, what I feel, is a major design flaw but I am starting to reconsider in maybe adding a way to power it on with an additional power switch. I think that little inconvenience of getting out to power on the camera when I need it is outweighed by the savings of this little add on. I would have liked to been able to use it wherever I may have wanted to just check out the back BUT. Hopefully, the mfg. will get the hint and rethink their philosophy... We’ll add more once I’ve installed and used it but so far I am happy with my purchase. Steve – Texas 2019 Chevy Z71 HD2500 Crew w/35’ Open Range Light 5th wheel.

Fairly easy to install works great takes a little getting use to syncing your phone when backing up but I love it.

This is a pretty neat item. Pricing is reasonable. WiFi works very well. My only issue is starting up the program when I go on a drive with my trailer or need to park it somewhere. The user interface seems kind of clunky, as I have to attempt to start the software multiple times to get to the camera. It may just be me. I am hoping so. I would give this thing a "5" rating except for that.

Have always had good reports on etrailer. But the vueSMART has not worked yet. I have not been able to get the camera to log on to its on wifi network. Keep getting message incorrect password, Sent a message to Hopkins on solution.

Bought to go on the rear of a 26ft travel trail;er. Was concerned with a delay reception being wireless but it's hardly noticeable. We don't have the trailer yet but tested it from over 100ft with obstructions and it worked surprisingly well. I like that my phone is the screen vs having a screen mounted to my truck.

First order - even though it was supposed delivered - never arrived. No questions asked by etrailer - they resent another one and it arrived safely. Customer service very helpful and diligent to solve the problem.

So far it has exceeded my expectations. I am replacing a furron system with this as the furrion is extremely difficult to see the image. The documentation is bare basic on instillation. A bit more detail and/or photoes might help. Also, if the antenna holder could be integrated as part of the holder rather than having to make holes in the camper to hold it would be appreciated

This is not going to work out for our Lance Travel Trailer. Very wide top clearance light and no flat area to mount and then get power from the light to the camera. Wish it would work for me since it looks fantastic.

If you don’t wire it up backwards it works like a charm. Great view. Easy to install as long as your trailer wires are long enough. Took me a little while to get it right because it always takes me several try’s no matter what I’m doing but I bet you will have an easier time of it. Remember, if you wired it right the LEDs on the camera come on.

Appears to be an excellent product. I have not installed it yet but the instructions are easy to understand and straightforward. I am confident it will live up to the high standards that apply to all the products offered by etrailer.

I watched the install video and it was very helpful. Install was a breeze. It works very well at close range, but as some have mentioned, has a delay at longer distances. We have a 32' TT, so not very effective while driving, but is very handy when backing.

Just received the unit haven't had chance to install, but if it works as other products I purchased should be no problems. Great company to deal with.

I just got it installed. Seems to work just fine. I’ll certainly know more when spring rolls around and we are out camping again

I tested the camera at on end of the house (inside) and went outside to the end of my driveway (roughly 110' feet) the picture was great and never changed and the frame rate didn't change. I was more than impressed with product.

Have yet to install but looks to be fairly easy. Looking forward to having the capability to view traffic to the rear of my trailer.
