Backup Sensor

Has anyone given thought to a backup sensor... since the camera is mediocre. I was thinking this might add some back up safety?
I saw these and didnít know if anyone has something like them? Or thoughts why they may not work?

Thanks Bradley

The sensors are a kind of singular technology.
Find a display you like and all else is about the same.

My $17 unit works just fine.
It's worthless if you have a camera, but it works just fine.
My camera sees my rear wall. I can put the rv within a half inch of anything.
What about your camera isn't letting you see the rear of your vehicle?

Same thing costs $15 at Ducksface link. I consider the rearview camera on my 2016 ACE as much better than mediocre. Did you remove the plastic film cover off the lens?

My backup sensor is the DW with her cell phone. No accidents yet. I will not, howwever, say she is cheaper than one of the other systems

Yeh, but I backed over the first one, so the second one was hesitant to help. I backed over the second one also.
Hell, my third one won't even get out of the rv if I'm backing up.
