Hey all,
I have an 07 tundra single cab w/ 4.7L V8 that I just love, runs like new with 150k miles on it and I got it for a song.
Anyway I am wanting to install a aftermarket deck that has 2 camera inputs (thinking of the pioneer 1500NEX or 1550NEX) and I want to have a backup camera on my truck and one on my travel trailer. Want to know if anyone has successfully done this and what you used to connect at the hitch?

Thanks in advance all.

I just have the VGA plug for the aftermarket truck camera under the bumper that I unplug for the truck and then plug in VGA connector for the trailer after I hook up.

That is simple and effective. Thanks
If you're a gadget geek, you can go to an IP-based camera system. Few would be interested in the complexity, but if you're handy with a travel router, have an android head unit, and a spare outdoor IP camera, I'll be happy to provide details on how I set mine up.

My head unit is an android 10 PX5 unit made for the Tundra. I have a small travel router (2" square) that takes my cell phone hotspot (unlimited data, including unlimited hotspot on visible for $25/mo OTD) and rebroadcasts a local network in the vehicle (kids can hook up their tablets for unlimited internet on longer trips). But, as a side-effect of the dedicated router in the vehicle, I've added an IP camera to the bed of my truck (I have an A.R.E. Z-series topper) so I can keep an eye on my dogs if they're traveling with us. The camera is powered with 12V (always on w/acc power). On the head unit, I run IP cam viewer which lets me see 1080P (or higher) video streaming from the IP camera.

Not nearly as simple as a dedicated backup camera, but infinitely configurable (including recording)... Just something to think about.
