    I recently bought a mirror that you put on the tailgate of your truck. This item is great. I was one of the worst backers on this planet and now I can hook up in no time at all. It is inexpensive and well worth every penny I spent on it. Hope this message helps others that have had problems hooking up.

    I saw a guy that had one he got off of an old, junk schoolbus. He had his mounted to his trailer, though, and when he was hooked up, it would pivot or fold down. I thought. "Now, THAT's a pretty cool idea!" The only time I ever really think of it, though, is when I'm backing up to the trailer.lol

    Never really had many problems backing up to the trailer.

    A lot of you are good at this. I was not. The mirror lets you see when the ball meets the connection on the trailer. The mirror folds up, so it does not take much room in your truck. It also slides on and off very easily. The cost was a little over thirty dollars plus shipping. Sorry, I do not have a way of taking a picture. I also believe that they guarantee satisfaction or your money back less shipping and handling. You may want to confirm.

    I forgot to mention that this one hangs off the end of your tailgate.
