Ford Super Duty Trailer Camera Mounted

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.

The Introduction

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.

Factory Function

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.

"Before I was old enough to walk, my dad was taking me to various types of racing events, from local drag racing to the Daytona 500," says Patrick Rall, a lifetime automotive expert, diehard Dodge fan, and respected auto journalist for over 10 years. "He owned a repair shop and had a variety of performance cars when I was young, but by the time I was 16, he was ready to build me my first drag car – a 1983 Dodge Mirada that ran low 12s. I spent 10 years traveling around the country, racing with my dad by my side. While we live in different areas of the country, my dad still drag races at 80 years old in the car that he built when I was 16 while I race other vehicles, including my 2017 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat and my 1972 Dodge Demon 340.

"Although I went to college for accounting, my time in my dad’s shop growing up allowed me the knowledge to spend time working as a mechanic before getting my accounting degree, at which point I worked in the office of a dealership group. While I was working in the accounting world, I continued racing and taking pictures of cars at the track. Over time, I began showing off those pictures online and that led to my writing.

"Ten years ago, I left the accounting world to become a full-time automotive writer and I am living proof that if you love what you do, you will never “work” a day in your life," adds Rall, who has clocked in time as an auto mechanic, longtime drag racer and now automotive journalist who contributes to nearly a dozen popular auto websites dedicated to fellow enthusiasts.

"I love covering the automotive industry and everything involved with the job. I was fortunate to turn my love of the automotive world into a hobby that led to an exciting career, with my past of working as a mechanic and as an accountant in the automotive world provides me with a unique perspective of the industry.

"My experience drag racing for more than 20 years coupled with a newfound interest in road racing over the past decade allows me to push performance cars to their limit, while my role as a horse stable manager gives me vast experience towing and hauling with all of the newest trucks on the market today.

"Being based on Detroit," says Rall, "I never miss the North American International Auto Show, the Woodward Dream Cruise and Roadkill Nights, along with spending plenty of time raising hell on Detroit's Woodward Avenue with the best muscle car crowd in the world.
