I got this Swift Hitch. I see they now make a 2 camera system with a extending antenna. I have to say I love mine. I can see hitching up very nice. The only problem I have had and they will tell you that on the reviews also is you have a switch to make the video swap out like a positive and a negative pic. so you just set it up and hit the button to what ever pic you are comfortable with. Not sure why they have that option. I found mine on Ebay for 120 bucks. Like I say I like it and it saved my marriage LOL.

I would recommend the Swift Hitch also. I've had mine for three years.

I got the camera setup from "Rear View Safety" company in Brooklyn NY. Mine is the wired version with 1 camera. Model: RVS-770613-213. I ordered from amazon so it came quick. Don't forget to order a RAM ball mount or get their $30 suction cup mount; otherwise you need to stick the included mount to dash with "never remove" tape.

I mounted the camera to top back of my TT. It has a single cable that goes from camera about 5' long. They include a cable that connects to that cable and goes to hitch area. The 3rd cable included goes from hitch up to dash. At dash, you need to wire it into a power and ground connection. The 4th cable included spans from your bumper connector over the hitch ball and onto trailer. Its the coiled cable and works great. Its all waterproof (best i can tell). To get the connectors thru the holes you need to drill, you must have a 1" step bit (Irwin makes one for around $40 at big box stores) and a 5/8" hole for back of trailer.

I used it for a one trip so far and WOW! it works flawless. At night it can see behind trailer, in pitch black, around 25ft with no problem.

HTH, Tom

I finally tried the GO PRO camera for hitching. I put a sticky mount on the hitch winch casing. Have a two directional swivel on the camera so I can point the camera at the hitch. Real easy to mount. Worked great. Only issue is there is a time delay that you have to consider. Still haven't tried it as a back up camera but I'm assuming it will work there also. Not ecomical to purchase for this purpose if you own or want one for other things all you need to buy is the sticky mounts.

I did a test with the GoPro as a back up camera. Seems the wifi is at its limit when I get to the truck cab with my phone. The picture cuts out. Maybe with a shorter camper it would work. I'm still going to try it at the campground next time I go. Figure there wont be any interferring signals out there.
