Been looking for awhile but I didn't like those bulky looking cameras. I found one by Straight Shot, it mounts on the cargo light for fifth wheel setups or on the tail gate for trailers. I like because it's small & looks great on the truck. When towing my 5th wheel I can use the camera on the rear of the 5th wheel like a rear view mirror. Didn't cost to much & you can either have it installed or do it yourself.

Nice Web site, My girlfriend is hooked on CSI also, I have to turn my head when the real gross stuff comes on. I like this set-up, It would be nice if you could also hook up a second camera to the back of the Trailer to see when your driving. You could switch between the two when you needed to, man wouldn't that make towing a breeze. Thanks for the Info!

Hi Speedracer,
Thanks, you can hook up two cameras, one on the truck & one on the trailer. Check out www.straightshotcamera.com, there are now pictures of all the addons with prices.
By the way do you use a fuel additive and if so what are you using?

I haven't used fuel additives in the past, but I am going to start. From what I read the Diesel in California is lacking, I have started using Redline Diesel additive, but I intend to buy the stuff others on this Forum recommend, Primrose, Stanadyne, just need to make sure whatever you use it does not contain alcohol. Highly recommend secondary filtration.

I've been looking for Primrose in my area, but so far haven't found it. Do you know what stores carry it, WalMart, PEP Boys, etc.? Edited by: Rick&Danni

Looks like a must for anyone in the repo business!


Are their competitor brands out there to choose from?
