Swift Hitch Wireless Camera System

No more guessing, no more getting in and out of the truck, with the Swift Hitch wireless camera system hooking up to your trailer has never been easier. To use, simply place the camera with its powerful magnetic base on the back of your vehicle. Then watch your hitch ball and trailer line up while you back up. And if you get confused turning the opposite way of what you see on the 2-1/2" color LCD screen, simply reverse the image to make hooking up even easier. The camera even works while hitching up at night with its infrared lights.

The Swift Hitch Wireless Camera System has many other great uses too! It works great as a backup camera on RVs, fifthwheel campers and enclosed cargo trailers. RV'ers can use it to help when adjusting the satelite reception for the tv. Construction workers, plumbers and electricians can use the small infrared camera to view into tight dark spaces. When backing your boat into the water, the camera can be placed at the end of your boat so you know when you can launch it. Mount the camera on the hood of your truck to make hooking up your snowplow a breeze. The small, lightweight, wireless camera with lights can be mounted on a pole or stick to give you endless viewing possibilities even in the dark.

Video Transcript for Swift Hitch Portable Wireless Camera System Demonstration

The Swift Hitch is a portable wireless camera system that provides a quick hitch for any trailer, camper, or snowplow. It comes with a magnetic camera which mounts to your tailgate. A simple on and off switch is located on both the camera and the hand held monitor. Once you get your Swift Hitch camera installed on the tailgate, take a moment to align your hitch ball on the view screen at the bottom towards the center. That way, it will give you maximum field of view to sneak up on the hitch ball. Once you get your camera straight and away, you can view your hitch ball backing up from the comfort of your vehicle, on the LCD screen to achieve an easy and simple hitch up every time. With the help of the camera, you can sneak up on the ball basically on the first try. Once you get pretty much cover on top of the ball, you can go ahead and start lowering your jack and get your trailer hooked up.

The 2.5 inch LCD screen provides clear color display with a 300 foot range of transmission. The night vision mode, which is controlled automatically by the camera, has a range of 15 feet.

The Swift Hitch comes with a weatherproof cover on the camera and a split adapter so you can charge both units at the same time using your cigarette lighter or 12 volt outlet.

A co-worker and I purchased the Swift hitch together in late January 2013 because I thought it was a little pricey. We work for an agricultural business that deals with trucking of grain and fertilizer. We wanted a camera system to use when loading our trucks with grain. We needed a system that was portable, wireless, and all around simple. The swift hitch was the right choice. We use it almost every day. As with everything, there are of course pros and cons. Pros: Easy to operate, Night vision works spectacular, monitor fits in your pocket, rechargeable, magnet is a good idea, charge both units with one cord=smart thinking, multitude of uses. All around handy to have. Cons: magnet is no way near strong enough, screen is hard to see (its like a mirror), 300' range? yeah right maybe in an open field. realistically 50-75 ft, battery life could be a little longer, needs a low battery indicator. From using the swift hitch extensively I've made a few observations. Outside in 30 F temps battery life only lasted about an hour. When the battery does start to run down, the screen starts to get fuzzy and lines in it. I thought the camera was broke. Didn't realize the battery was going dead. Especially when the ad claims it last 3-4 hours and it had only been 1. This is why I feel there should be some kind of low battery indicator. The longest I have gotten the battery to last has been 2.5 hours. And that was starting with a full charge. Expect a 2 hour useable battery life. As mentioned above, the range is no where near 300'. I know in the description it says that obstructions will reduce the distance. I didn't think it would be that big of a reduction though. Even in an open field I would be skeptical that the swift hitch would even perform at 200' let alone 300'. The furthest I have tested it was close to 150'. I know it was this far because the camera was two semi truck lengths away. Our trucks are around 70' long and with a space in between of probably 10-15'. The camera had lines in it and was fuzzy. But I could still see what was on the screen. Also I have zip tied a much larger magnet onto the bottom of the camera to help hold it in place. Works great. I can hang it anywhere, anyway, and on things that vibrate or shake. The magnet is a good idea but needs to be stronger. Maybe some kind of clamp as an option would be a good idea too? Just a thought. I mentioned the screen was hard to see. Yeah I know its only a 2.5 inch screen. I'm not saying its to small. There is some type of glare that makes it look like your looking into a mirror. On sunny days its near impossible to see the screen. It does however work good enough where you can see whats going on. The night vision works great. I've only used it maybe 5 times and it was superb. A very ingenious feature. I like the monitor being able to fit in my pocket also. I can whip it out, check whatever it is I'm watching ,and put it away leaving my hands free to do whatever. Clever design. I've given this product 4 stars because its not perfect and there is room for improvement. I didn't feel like I was getting $200 worth. If these small things were corrected I would say 5 stars in a heart beat. I've used this product probably 100+ times. If not more. Its simple and effective but not cheap. Sure beats me getting in and out of my truck and climbing up and down off of my trailer 37 times each time I load my truck. I set it up when I'm trying to position my dump trailer to unload into a small pit. I put it on the rear of my trailer when I'm backing so I know when to stop and so I don't run into something that may be in my blind spot. When I hook my semi truck to my trailer I use it to line up my fifth wheel plate to the pin perfectly the first time every time. The possibilities are endless when it comes to uses. Anywhere you need an extra set of eyes, the swift hitch works good. I can load my truck with precision and not have to worry about falling off my trailer as I'm climbing up and down those 37 times. I've reduced that to 2 times. This product just makes life so much easier. Like another customer wrote, "should have bought one years ago". I couldn't agree more. 83733

This is my second Swift Hitch. I not only use the system to hook up but also I am a sound engineer. I use the system to look under stage floors and such to discover how wiring may be done. This unit can see in the dark better than the naked eye. Great piece of gear. Well made and works. 62995


I still use the Swift Hitch as a valuable tool. The thing is just great for the purpose it was designed as well as many other tasks. The only negative I have is the receiver battery will drain down in about a week if left in the unit even if it is not turned on. I just take the battery out after each use. I now charge the battery every two months even if it is still working.I would recommend the unit and if lost I would replace it with another Swift Hitch.

Swift Hitch Wireless back up camera was ordered right from our camp site in Ocean City, MD based on camper recommendation. Rec'd at site within 3 days. Everything about unit is great except distance from truch hitch to RV ball/hitch NOT far enough to say a perfect unit. Cameras field of view is a little narrow but if one backs up slow, corection(s) can be made in time to get it right on first or second try. Saved my marriage.....don't need her help/yelling anymore! Unit does work great at night also. I hold small monitor in my hand as I am looking back. Well constructed and company representative very helpful on ordering. Great company/service and good back up camera. 141085


Saved my marriage... Good one - I know exactly what your talking about. I laugh everytime I think about it.

I would like to say your product is great does just what I need. The company I work for pulls campers to natural gas well sites to act as mobile offices and sleeping quarters in remote areas.I do not have the time to get out of the truck 20 times to see if I'm lined up with a trailer to hook up. The night vision is great to because alot of times it is very dark on a site where the trailers are parked and I can go in the dead of night not worrying about how to hook up in the dark. Thank you very much for this product and a great customer service staff!!! 62637

Just recovering from a neck surgery with a very stiff neck. Swift Hitch portable camera system made it very easy for me to hook up horse trailer this weekend with few moves. However, my truck has blue tooth phone connection. May be this is a reason for the receiver monitor having lines, making it very difficult for me to see anything between cotton balls. I had to hold the monitor out of the window, finding a sweet spot to complete the hitching. It would be nice if charging could be done from 110V outlet. Driving around charging both bateries 2,5 hours ( as suggested ) was not fun. Over all I like this system, it helps. But a larger screen, cleaner-crisper picture and a longer depth of field would have been nicer to have. 62558

Swift Hitch: Wow! It's amazing how one product can bring back the joy of boating! I have to push (front hitch) my boat into our backyard because the alley behind the house is very tight. This makes the hook-up so easy AND then I place it on the back of the trailer (now the front-most part) and use it to assist making the turn into the backyard. Could not do it without it!! Snap-On Towing Mirrors: Fit very nicely and secure. Add just the right amount of additional mirror range needed for backing up my pontoon!! Great product!! The best part of this sale was how super helpful the sales representative from etrailer was in helping me find a solution to my concerns!! THANKS VINCE!!! 167995

I researched many other cameras, and this one was the best - and the price at etrailer was lower than anywhere I could find. I was nervous hitching my trailer up before, but this made it a breeze - it's pretty much idiot-proof. Word of advice - don't leave the camera attached with just the magnet. My Denali doesn't have much metal to attach this to so the area I could find on my tailgate wasn't the best to attach this camera to - it may bounce off if you travel over bumps. Shipping was fast, and arrived before estimated delivery date. ALL of my future RV and travel trailer purchases will be through etrailer - what a great experience! 65688

I bought this because it always seemed that I was having to hook up by myself most of the time. While I hardly ever have any trouble left to right, stopping ball right under the receiver was never my strong point. This has solved that problem. I would have given 5 stars but I would like to see the magnet a bit stronger. It has not fallen off but I feel as if it's about to. Other than that I would have to say is works great. Also the Night Vision works Great!!! Lights things up like daylight when you're looking through the monitor. Comes with two pouches but I would suggest getting the optional carry case. I'm glad I did. 45465

I bought this for my husband so he could use it when hooking up the truck to our fifth-wheeler and we both love it! I love it because now he doesn't need me to guide him. He loves it because it works as described. The camera can be placed on any metal surface because of the magnet, and he can angle it whichever way he needs to. He can also use it when backing into camp sites. Originally he said he didn't want one, but I gave it to him for Christmas anyway. He's very happy that I did. The picture on the monitor is clear; we have not had any problems with signal strength or interference. Wireless is definitely convenient! 63373

I ordered the product by phone and the customer rep was knowledgeable and helpful about the product. I immediately received email notifications and tracking info and got my order probably faster than I would have expected. The equipment is ready to use out of the packaging after making sure batteries are charged. Nothing complicated to set up or do. It can't get any easier than this product. It is as easy to use as the online sample videos for the system indicate. I have no problem recommending etrailer. 84469

Frustration Buster The Swift Hitch Trailer Hitch Aligner Portable Wireless Camera is the BEST camping tool I've bought. This outstanding device takes the frustration out of hitching up my travel trailer. I have a Hensley Hitch which requires almost perfect alignment. This tool is the answer for this demanding task. Now I have the best Hitch, and the best method to hook to it! The AC adapter is a handy way to keep the batteries charged. 4263

Product was easy to set up by following instructions. Backed up to my boat trailer and aligned it with ball on first try. This will be very helpful and allow me to do this task without getting out of vehicle several times as in past. Only reason not giving it an excellent rating I just got this product and I just used it one time. If this product continues to perform I will tell all my friends about this product. 77000

This was just what I needed. With my old boat being 14', I could come close to the ball and then move the trailer. But I bought a 19' center console boat that's too heavy to move. The Swift Hitch camera is ideal. I can now back up under the ball the first time every time. No more getting in and out of the car to see where I am. Its great! 132080

I haven't used the camera to hitch up yer, but in playing with it, the product looks excellent with a clear picture. In addition to using it as a hitch camera, I'm going to feed it 12 volt power and use it in the rear window of my trailer as a rear view cam. Also will be useful for keeping am eye on the campsite with the night vision feature. 110343

Do you have a question about this Backup Cameras and Alarms?

  • What Back-Up Camera Can be Used with a 32 Foot Travel Trailer
  • At that trailer length, we have two wireless cameras that will work for you. The first is the Swift Hitch Camera, part # 04928. It will transmit up to 300 ft. with no obstructions. I would mount it towards the top of the trailer to get better signal transmission. The camera and monitor have built-in batteries and the kit includes a charger that will charge both from your cigarette lighter port.

If your truck has a long bed, you would not be able to see the king pin until you backed up enough to get it into the field of vision for the mirror.

  • The Peak Performance Wireless Camera System you mentioned, part # PKCORB does not have a night vision function. It relies on existing light. If used in a totally dark area, you would gain some illumination from the reverse lights of the vehicle, but the light provided by those is usually not very bright. If you are interested in a camera system with night vision capability, we offer the Swift Hitch Portable Camera System, part # 04928 with a 4 hour battery life or for 10 hour battery...

  • Can the Swift Hitch Backup Camera be Tilted straight back for Installation at the Rear of an RV
  • The Swift Hitch Portable Wireless Camera, # 04928, cannot be oriented straight out. The camera mount will not allow the camera portion to rotate to a 90 degree angle to the base. You could position the camera at a 90 degree angle to the back of the RV, if you fabricated an angled mount that would attach to the back of the RV and then attach the camera to the angled mount. I produced a short video showing the range of adjustment that the camera has. The other issue I see with this camera...

  • What is the Life Expectancy of the Battery in the Swift Hitch Wireless Backup Camera 04928
  • I checked into this with the manufacturer, and the battery in the camera portion of the # 04298 wireless backup camera system is actually replaceable. The battery is sealed inside the camera, but can be accessed. The new battery would need to be soldered into the assembly, so it is a bit more tricky to replace than the battery in the monitor but it is doable.

  • Back Up Camera Recommendation for Use Behind a Trailer
  • The Swift Hitch, # 04928 is the camera I recommend for placing behind your trailer.

It has a 4 hour battery life so when you stop you will want to charge the battery. For a more...

  • Recommended Rear-View Camera Solution to Assist Hitching Gooseneck Trailer
  • Although many of the camera systems we offer might be modified or altered in some way that would allow the camera to mount to the inside of the rear window glass, none of them are designed to mount that way directly out of the box. My best recommendation for a camera-type solution would be the Swift Hitch Portable Wireless Camera System, available with a 4-hour battery, part # 04928 or a 10-hour battery, as part # SH02. Both systems are rechargeable and the cameras can be temporarily...

  • Back up Camera Recommendation to See Behind an Airstream Trailer

  • Which Backup Cameras Have Night Vision for Night Time Use
  • The Hopkins Rear View Camera, # HM60195VA, does not have infrared or LED lights for better night vision on the monitor. In dark places or at night, the image would appear washed and dim. For a good system that does have night vision, we have the Switch Hitch, # 04928. This system uses infrared lighting. The image is not as good as broad daylight but it is much better compared to a system with no night vision.

  • The Master Lock Wireless Backup Camera and Hitch Alignment System, # 4843DAT, has a 3-1/2 inch back lit color monitor that can be seen in the dark or in dim lighting circumstances.

  • Is the Swift Hitch Trailer Hitch Aligner Portable Wireless Camera System Waterproof
  • The camera in the Swift Hitch, # 04928, is weather resistant but the camera is not completely sealed so it cannot be considered waterproof. For something to be considered waterproof it would have to be able to be submerged under water for a certain amount of time and still function. For rainy weather, though, the camera will work but I do recommend that once you are done using it, place the camera where it is out of the rain. I have included a couple of videos of this system for you.

  • What is the Best Camera Position for the Swift Hitch Wireless Backup Camera and Hitch Aligner
  • Generally speaking, if you position the camera so that on the top of the monitor screen you can see the receiver, that would be a good place to have it. That way, you will can quickly determine where the hitch is relative to the image on the screen and still have plenty of space on the screen for the area behind the vehicle. If you have to have the camera very close to the receiver, try angling it out so that you just catch the edge of the receiver or the ball on a ball mount on the...

  • Back Up Camera Recommendation for Seeing at Night
  • Unless you have some pretty powerful reverse lights night time vision would be pretty limited with the Hopkins Smart Hitch Backup Camera part # HM50002.

  • Can I Use a Back-Up Camera to Monitor a Scooter on the Back of a 5th Wheel Trailer

  • Is the Swift Hitch Wireless Backup Camera Water Resistant
  • Basically what protects the Swift Hitch # 04928 from the elements is the plastic cover that you see on the back of the camera. This makes them more weather resistant but not water proof. It would be a good idea to take either camera off when not in use to keep the elements from shortening its life span.
