Mount-nearly-anywhere wireless trailer-hitch camera puts eyes where needed, saves time and money

The signs appear on tow vehicles everywhere — bent rear bumpers, broken brake lights and mangled license plates with those same familiar dings. Tarnished by misguided trailer tongues, each battle scar tells the same story, and asks a singular question:

Wouldn’t it be less hassle if hooking up the boat trailer was as easy as putting the truck in reverse?

Actually — with assistance from a cool little techno tool — it is. Engineered by the optics experts at Outdoors Insight, the 5.8-GHz iBall Wireless Trailer Hitch Camera offers a sweet solution to one of the most common dilemmas in the entire auto world— hitching the trailer to your truck, all by yourself.

There are two ways to make the critical connection: (1) Take your best guess at blindly lining things up, hopping out of the automobile a hundred times to check your progress — only to discover you missed the mark and have to attempt a complete do-over. (2) Snap an iBall Camera to your bumper and guide your vehicle to an immediate hole-in-one.

The two-part iBall system employs a small wireless camera — powered by a rechargeable lithium-ion battery — and a compact color LCD that plugs into your vehicle’s power port (cigarette lighter). The camera features an industrial-strength magnet that mounts to nearly any metallic surface on or near the bumper, tailgate or hitch. The gimbal-mounted camera can also be pivoted in any direction and is even submersible — in case you back a little too far down the boat ramp. The camera itself offers a 120-degree field of view for optimal visibility.

Inside your vehicle, you can view the trailer’s hitch as it approaches the ball and adjust steering accordingly, the first time, every time. For comfortable ergonomic viewing, the 3.5-inch iBall LCD even sports a handy adjustable gooseneck for easy re-positioning. The usually aggravating process now takes seconds rather than minutes.

While the iBall Wireless Trailer Hitch Camera will certainly get you on the water faster and with less stress, it’s equally valuable for any trailer — whether it’s a boat, camper, ATV, utility or horse trailer in need of a tow. The iBall works for other trailering applications, too, such as monitoring an RV, backing into a cramped garage or launching at a busy boat ramp. Simply connect the camera to the back of the boat, camper or anywhere else it’s needed. When you’re done, stow the portable iBall camera and monitor conveniently in your glovebox.

Transmitting on a crystal clear 5.8-GHz frequency, the iBall Camera works perfectly and without interference in the presence of other wireless devices, such as a 2.4-GHz Bluetooth signal. Boasting a transmission distance of up to 100 feet, iBall is durable, weather resistant and versatile. An internal, rechargeable battery powers the camera for hours and includes a USB charging cable.

Portable, affordable and super convenient, the new 5.8-GHz iBall Camera system retails for just $169.95 — compared to similar integrated backup cameras that cost thousands at the dealer. Available exclusively online, the iBall even comes with free U.S. shipping and a full 90 day warranty. To learn more or to order, visit www.iBallHitchCam.com.
