Lots of solutions. Mount a camera on rear of cab or front of bed. Some rear windows have the glass maker monogram. Line up the king pin with it using your rear view mirror. Use the GOAL Method..... Get Out And Look... Use a spotter.. If you have power seats raise the seat. Buy the magnetic poles with the ball on them. Line them up
Just my 1 /2 cent.
On my rig I have an automatic slider hitch and the adapter from pucks in box to isr rails. I can see the saddle on the hitch in my rear view. Piece of cake lining up once I have my morning coffee

Unfortunately my new RAM didn't come with the cargo camera which is great for hitching. I purchased a wireless camera that has a very powerful magnet on the base. It works in conjunction with an app on my cell phone. Very handy. And it stays put..........I forgot to take it off after hitching up and drove about 300 miles before I discovered I forgot to take it off...........it was still there!! Bought it from Amazon:
When we had the bumper-pull I bought a hitch-aid (telescoping antenna with magnetic base and foam ball on top) from Harbor F. Pretty much useless as they didn’t stand straight. Tossed them in the corner of the garage. When we got the 5th I discovered, like you, that I couldn’t see the hitch. I got one of the hitch-aid things out and stick it just in front of the cut-out on the plate. When backing I can line up the antenna with the pin as I back. When the pin box hits the antenna it just pushes it out of the way. After a few uses I’ve gotten pretty good at nailing it. Camera would probably let me hitch like a real pro but this does a good enough job for me.
