So I have been playing around with this for a while and I thought that I would enlighten everyone because this has turned out great.

I bought this wireless back-up camera at Walmart for about 100 bucks http://www.walmart.com/catalog/product.do?product_id=4744711 and put it in the truck and trailer. It did not work very good at first, actually I almost took it back thinking that it wasn't going to work for what I wanted. Well I looked at it a bit more and realized that the antenna for the camera is wrapped in shrink wrap directly next to the positive and negative wires which would probably cause some interference. So I unwrapped the shrink wrap and seperated the two and what a difference that made. I used if for a month or so but would get static and interference here and there so, I routed the antenna outside of the trailer attached on a home made support rod and the picture has been crystal clear ever since. I will try to post some pictures up to show what I have done and how it is attached. You can clearly see 4 horses in my stock trailer now, and the piece of mind is wonderful. Here is the set up that I currently use it on.
