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. 940434

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. 936618

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. 934256

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. 933235

by:

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. 928023

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. 927405

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. 924622

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. 923819

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. 923432

by:

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. 923385

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. 922744



- HM34FR
by:

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 922628

Can't tell you yet. I am getting it for Christmas so I haven't even seen it. 922546

by:

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. 922312

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. 915043

Ask the Experts about this Hopkins Backup Camera

  • Do You Need To Reseal the Light When Installing VueSMART Backup Camera?
    The VueSMART RV and Trailer Backup Camera - Wireless - Universal Mount - 152-Degree View # HM34FR fits behind the clearance light mounting base. I recommend using the Loctite RTV 598 High-Performance Silicone Gasket Maker - Black - 2.7-Fl Oz Tube # LT37467 or basic silicone sealant # 0160297. The sealant is for the trailer siding to keep moisture out. You can see in our installation video I've attached our installer used butyl tape like # AL64UV.

  • Installing VueSmart Backup Camera On Flagstaff Trailer Pre-Wired For Furrion Backup Camera
    Thank you for your business! I have another option but there is currently not a pig tail harness that will plug into the Furrion pre-wired connector on your Flagstaff Trailer to install your new VueSMART RV and Trailer Backup Camera # HM34FR. Instead of using the included butt connectors, I recommend using two of the Quick Splices # SWC502905-1 which will allow you to connect the wiring behind the Furrion connector and will not require you to cut it off as the splice will slide over...

  • Observation System for Horse Trailer that Allows Two Camera Views

  • What Simple Backup Camera System Can I Use if I Do not Have Wifi
    We have a solution but without Wifi the VueSMART RV and Trailer Backup Camera part # HM34FR isn't going to work for you. Instead use the Rear View Safety Wireless Backup Camera System part # RVS-091406 is the way to go. It is wireless but does not use Wifi so regardless of where you are at it will work well for you. Rear View Safety products are very well built and last a very long time. Check out the linked video for more details on it.

  • Does VueSMART RV and Trailer Backup Camera # HM34FR Require Phone with Data Plan
    You do not need a data plan on your phone to use the VueSMART RV and Trailer Backup Camera # HM34FR. It creates it's own wifi hotspot that your phone would connect to independently to display the image. I attached an install video for this for you to check out as well.

  • Observation System that Can be On All the Time at Rear of RV with Nighvision

    The camera part # HM34FR won't fit exactly in place of the mount you have but it will still install reasonably easy.

It won't attach directly to the wiring either but once you cut off the connector on the wiring you have you can attach to the wiring using included butt connectors. Your easiest solution would be a Furrion Vision S system part # FOS43TASF which will connect...

  • Does VueSMART RV and Trailer Backup Camera Mount to Bracket
    The VueSMART RV and Trailer Backup Camera # HM34FR will not mount to a Furrion bracket.

  • Can I Mount the Hopkins VueSmart to the Top of a Trailer Instead of the Rear
    You can mount the VueSmart # HM34FR in the manner that you're referring to if you see fit, but the best way to mount this is going to be flat on the back side of the coach; as long as the roof is flat though, it shouldn't be an issue. The camera does have a correct orientation, so when looking at the bracket, you'll want to make sure the antenna is on the right side to ensure you're getting the correct feed and not one that is upside down.

  • RV Observation System Setup that Can Use More Than One Camera
    The VueSMART RV # HM34FR that you referenced can only be used to display one camera at a time and having more than one camera powered up with the same frequency would cause interference.

    I definitely understand the confusion. I reached out to Hopkins directly and confirmed that the Hopkins VueSMART RV and Trailer Backup Camera # HM34FR does emit its own wifi signal to allow you to connect to any android or apple device that has wifi capabilities to use as a monitor for the camera. This is great because it will work even in areas that you do not have wifi. I included a video for the Hopkins VueSMART # HM34FR for you to take a look at.

    I reached out to Hopkins directly about using the VueSMART RV and Trailer Backup Camera # HM34FR on your truck with Android Auto.

  • Can a Hopkins Camera System be Used with a Furrion Factory Camera Prewire Setup
    I'm sorry but the Furrion systems and the Hopkins systems are not compatible with each other. The most cost effective solution I have is the Furrion Vision S Wireless RV Backup Camera System w/ Night Vision part # FOS43TASF if you want to use that particular base. You do have the option of not using the Furrion base and the power from the marker lights instead and still be able to use the Hopkins VueSMART RV and Trailer Backup Camera part # HM34FR and view it through your smart phone.

  • Instructions & Can Other Connectors be Used to Install the Hopkins VueSMART Backup Camera
    For the most secure connection, when installing the VueSMART RV and Trailer Backup Camera # HM34FR, I do highly recommend using the included heat shrink butt connectors with a heat gun, the Heat Gun with Nozzles # ALL836717. However, if you'd like you can also use butt connectors that crimp such as the Butt Connectors # 05732-2. There are written directions which I've linked for you as well of the VueSMART RV and Trailer Backup Camera # HM34FR.
