Many types out there. We took the low cost one and used a license plate camera system.
The main negative is inconsistent image transmission. Fuzzy,yes, but adequate for viewing our bicycle. Good view angle for backing up,but cannot replace the wife.
Over all for 95.00 it was good.

What year is your trailer? And what does "prepped for a backup camera" mean? Is it wired to a certain location?

My 3200 came with a Garmin BC model that is screwed to the metal frame above the ramp door. The Garmin camera has a wire lead that ends with a multi-prong connector which they routed through a small hole in the frame. That wire lead attaches to a connector inside the ramp door frame.



I believe that wire inside the ramp door frame is routed to the front of the trailer to a wireless transmitter in the cabinet above the right night stand.

Mine came with one but was wireless. The only prep I could see was the power cord came out of the roof at the back. Have no idea what the power is connected to. Nothing in the 12v fuse box turns it off.

It should be 12v power coming from the tow vehicle, at least that is what I have found on mine.

The power to the camera comes from the running lights. In order for my camera to work, I have to turn the lights in the truck on, which also powers the running lights on the trailer.

The combination power/video cable on mine is routed INSIDE the hollow ramp door frame up to the very top middle of the frame. I don't know if it came from factory this way, or if the dealer had to pull the cable up to that point (mine supposedly came with backup camera per the invoice). Anyway, there is a quarter-sized hole right above the middle of ramp door frame. The garmin BC is screwed to the metal frame over this hole and the BC wire is routed into the hole and pluged into the trailer cable (male/female connectors).


You might want to contact Dutchmen to find out how these things come wired from the factory. If not pre-wired I would guess there is no cable.
