what backup camera?

just looking on ebay quickly, i've seen some cheap ones for like 20 bucks?

mainly i just want something to mount just above the hitch. to use for hooking up trailers and just backing up in general in tight spaces.

will one of those cheap ones work?? or is this something i wanna spend a little more coin on.. ?

I would spend a little money on it, at least for clarity and video quality. Those cheap are prolly made very poorly and might not hold up against water or something

I want one of the license plate ones but it just seems a little too bulky for me.

I got one of those cheap ones, worked fine for me. Just make sure to tape up the connections good.

Just the camera for your double din (if it has reverse camera, I have no idea), or a full camera/screen system?

I picked up a cheap (I think it was like $15-25) for mine (with infared, reverse display and the display resolution Pioneer recommended) and it's worked great so far.

The camera like sniper_101 has works good. I'd just get one of those. Or, you can even buy OEM cameras on eBay. Some of them are smaller in size, which would make it easier to mount.

you should probably go ahead and get a few more screens, maybe put a couple cameras on each side of your bed... ya know.. so you don't go driving off mountains.
