The available accessory trailering camera system by Echomaster, along with an available gooseneck/5th wheel trailering prep package, complement built-in technologies to help make trailering with the GMC Sierra HD heavy-duty pickup easier and more comfortable than ever.

The gooseneck/fifth wheel trailering prep package is offered on Sierra HD models and makes them ready to tow larger trailers right from the factory, while the accessory trailering camera system is available for Sierra 1500 and HD models. It was developed with Echomaster to help reduce blind spots on the highway and when reversing with a trailer.

Trailering camera system
GMC’s new dealer-available accessory trailering camera system is compatible with 2014-18 Sierra 1500 and HD truck equipped with the DPN- or DQS-code trailer mirrors.  

It features three cameras: two side-view cameras and one for the rear of the trailer. The side cameras are integrated with the trailer mirror housings, offering a view of the sides of the truck and trailer.  

The rear camera is designed to be mounted to the top, rearmost edge of the trailer, helping to provide a view of what’s behind the trailer when reversing. It is hardwired to the trailer lights for electrical power, and wirelessly transmits images to the interior display.

The Sierra’s rear backup camera is activated when reverse is selected. Pressing and holding the radio Home button for five seconds brings up the camera menu screen to select the trailer camera image. The system also supports the use of an optional fourth camera such as one inside the trailer, transmitting video to monitor horses, other livestock or additional content during transport.

Any of the camera views can be activated at any time on the IntelliLink display. GMC will also offer a camera integrated in the center brake lamp housing, providing a view of the cargo bed contents or additional assistance when connecting a 5th wheel/gooseneck trailer.

The trailering camera system is available from dealers, with prices starting at an MSRP $999, excluding tax and dealer installation. It is warranted by Echomaster, a division of AAMP Global.

Factory-Installed Fifth Wheel Prep Package
The new gooseneck/fifth wheel trailering prep package is an option on Sierra HD models, and feature a frame-mounted hitch platform and tray that accommodates a gooseneck ball hitch or fifth wheel hitch mounting brackets.

The platform is concealed beneath the truck’s bed floor and when the hitch isn’t needed, it can be removed for full use of the bed’s cargo capacity. Caps for the openings in the floor are included and a bed-mounted seven-way trailer wiring connection is also available with the prep package.

Built-in trailering technologies
Sierra 1500 and HD models are engineered to deliver great trailering capability with refinement and control – attributes that help to provide driving confidence when using that capability to the fullest.

All models feature standard StabiliTrak electronic stability control with trailer sway control and hill start assist, as well as four-wheel disc brakes. An automatic locking rear axle is standard on HD models and included with the available NHT Max Trailering package on Sierra 1500.

Additional features include:

  • Integrated trailer brake controller is available on Sierra 1500 and 2500HD and standard on 3500HD
  • Available rear-vision camera system
  • Available integrated cruise control, auto grade braking and diesel exhaust braking offer greater driving control.

New Digital Steering Assist is also offered on crew cab Sierra HD SLE, SLT and Denali models, along with double cab SLE and SLT Sierra HD models. It enhances driver control with a trailer by using technology similar to active rack-and-pinion systems to provide corrections that enhance stability on the highway.
