Hey folks. I just order a new 2020 Cedar Creek fifth wheel. I ordered it with a 4-camera security system. The salesman said it doubles as a camera system when you are towing. I’m now starting the tow vehicle search process. I’ve settled on an F350 diesel, but don’t know if I need the towing technology option to tie the camper into the truck display. Anyone have any advice?

LOL Bucky! Thanks, I'm pretty fired up about the Cedar Creek. I'm trying to decide if I want a new truck or a used one. If I get used, I may not be able to get everything I want on it. So I'm trying to figure out what are the "must haves" on the tow vehicle and I just don't understand exactly how the truck monitor interacts with the CC's cameras.

truck will not interact with trailer cameras... It will be looking for the WIRED Ford cameras.

2020 Chevrolet/GMC invisible trailer camera system seems pretty sweet. I understand it requires a wired camera on the rear of the trailer. Can't say if it will articulate with your trailer's camera, but it would be worth checking out.

None of the trucks will operate your 4 camera system unless you do a lock pic on your truck. The 4 camera system comes with a screen that is portable for in your truck or RV.

Order the tow tech package with your Ford. It is well worth the money.

I was going to order the camera for my truck until I found out it would only work in reverse. I wanted a full time observation camera so I ordered a separate system. I have a separate monitor that sits on my dash. Another issue with the 17-19 Ford Super Duty is if you do get the trailer mounted camera the hook up for it is in the rear bumper. Not good if you have a fifth wheel. I think I read where the camera hook up will be in the bed in the upcoming 2020 models. Unless something has changed I think it will still be a back up camera only.

Has anyone tried a camera at the third brake light?
