No such thing as "can't", reversing cameras are for girls.
Yep same here bud i ust to deliver towed water bowsers here there and everywhere and only used mirrors or my 6th sense to reverse but with a truck or pick up you can see there is nothing behind so really there is no worries .
i still only use mirrors mainly so i can say i can but the camera is there for a quick glance to be sure there is nothing pulled up behind me and also to see over the low hedges if reversing round corners and mirrors dont see round corners - the last thing i want to do is prang my pride and joy or someone else s.
Also on busy slips or the local one i dont want to be backing over the dumb guy - girl or kid who walks behind me when backing down while the sailing - rowing club takes over 90% of the slip its like a reverse slarlem track sometimes
the initial reason for fitting the camera was when a twat on a scooter pulled right up behind me on one of the lanes [ out of mirror view ] - i reversed he didnt move or beep and without me seeing him or him approach i knocked in to him
He admitted being a twat but it could of ended worse
Ime sure the op asked if some one could recommend a cheap reverse camera
Ile get the details of mine once the van comes back from the garage and pass on
