Score a Ford Trailer Camera Kit for the Newer Super Duty
Includes the camera and wiring needed to integrate the system into your Ford Super Duty infotainment system.
If you pull a trailer with your modern-era Ford Super Duty pickup and you like gadgets, the Trailer Mounted Backup Camera Kit from Ford Accessories is a must-have item. The kit is made to be easily installed in a 2017 through 2019 F-250, F-350 or F-450 with the premium infotainment system, coming with the plug-and-play wiring harnesses and the plugs needed to give the system a factory look and function.
While flipping through the FTE Marketplace, we came across a new-in-box backup camera kit for the modern Super Duty, posted by “ap48379” and ready for easy installation into your newer F-250, F-350 of F-450.
When the OP posted his new-in-box Super Duty camera kit for sale, he shared three pictures that really don’t do as much good, along with the following information.
This kit is new, it includes camera, all the wiring and plug-ins needed. This kit does not have the TPMS sensors or the TPMS module. I can ship this for 40$ anywhere in US or Canada.
Since the pictures of the wiring in a box and the camera components still all wrapped up doesn’t show us the product, we found the pictures here from Ford, with one showing the items all spread out and another showing the camera mounted on the back of a trailer. The seller points out that there are no tire pressure sensors, as Ford also offers a kit with the camera and pressure monitors for a trailer, but it costs nearly twice as much.
This Ford Super Duty trailer camera system is fully wired, but it is set up in a way that allows you to give the system factory plug-and-play function. The harness from the camera that is installed on the trailer plugs into a port that you install on the rear end of the truck. Once everything is wired up, the trailer camera is an option in the backup camera menu when it is hooked up, but when you drop your trailer, you simply unplug the wiring harness from the truck.
This system is particularly helpful if you tow a large box-style trailer that obstructs your rear-view, such as a horse trailer or an enclosed car trailer. There are aftermarket systems that do the same basic thing, but they aren’t made to work with the factory infotainment system with simple plug-and-play function or the factory fitment.
Even if you are a pro when it comes to backing up with a trailer, there is no question that this camera system makes the process safer and easier, and with a marketplace price of $300, it is a bit less than you will pay when buying it from Ford.
