2-Camera System

Sample applications of SH03

This 2-camera system is perfect for a variety of trailering applications in which 2 unique viewing angles are desired. For example, you could keep an eye on the horses inside your trailer. Or you could use the system to monitor your rig when towing a boat behind your fifth-wheel camper. The system is also ideal for agricultural jobs such as monitoring 2 filling silos. Each camera wirelessly transmits video to the hand-held monitor, and the entire system is battery powered - which means no complicated wiring is needed for installation. And, the cameras' place-and-point design lets you reposition them for each job.

Hitch Alignment Made Easy

The 2-camera Swift Hitch aligner doubles your view so you can quickly align your vehicle's hitch ball with your trailer's coupler. It eliminates trailer hookup headaches like getting in and out of your vehicle, relying on a spotter, and accidental collision.

Place the Swift Hitch camera on your tailgate and watch the monitor from your cab as you back-up

Using the system is easy. Attach one of the cameras to your tailgate or trailer - the magnetic base makes it simple to place the camera wherever you need it - and point it at your hitch ball. Hop in the driver's seat, and use the monitor to watch your progress as you back up your vehicle. No getting out of the truck to check, no deciphering the hand signals of your significant other, and no running out of patience. Once the hitch ball and coupler are aligned, all that's left to do is hookup and hit the road.

For gooseneck and fifth-wheel trailers, attach the camera to the back of your cab for a helpful look into the bed of your truck as you back up to the trailer.

Digital Transmission Without Interference

This system uses digital technology to transmit images from the camera to the monitor. Unlike wireless devices that use analog technology, this camera system does not pick up interference from other devices that use Bluetooth or WiFi. This means that you'll have a crisp, clear image of your hitch every time.

Night Vision Cameras with 10-Hour Battery Life

Each of the cameras has a 10-hour battery life, making them perfect for folks who tow frequently or for those who need to monitor a job for a long period of time and don't want to spend a lot of time recharging the batteries.

Infrared lens on SH03 cameras

Seven infrared lights surround each camera's lens to provide up to 15' of night vision so you can get the job done in the dark. Night vision automatically activates in dim or dark conditions and turns off when lighting improves. When the cameras are using night vision, images are displayed in black and white on the monitor.

Rear view of the Swift Hitch SH03 cameras

Each camera is labeled with a number because they operate on two different channels. Camera 1 operates on channel 1, and camera 3 operates on channel 3. Camera 1 sends images to the monitor from up to 200', away and camera 3 transmits from up to 300' away. Each camera gives you a targeted, 55-degree viewing angle (horizontal and vertical).

Camera 1 comes with two antennas so that you can get optimal reception. The 2-5/8" antenna should be used on camera 1 for most applications where there is little to no obstruction blocking transmission. When camera 1 is obstructed, such as when inside an enclosed trailer, use the included 7-1/2" long extension antenna. You can route the extension antenna from the camera to an unobstructed area using the included 9' cable. The extension antenna has a magnetic base for easy set-up.

The back of each camera has an on/off button, an LED light, and a jack for the charging cable. The LED light changes color to signal when the camera is on (green), when it's charging while the power is on (yellow), and when it's charging while the power is off (red).

Place-and-Point Design

The Swift Hitch SH03 camera has a magnetic base that attaches to your tailgate

Setting up each camera is as fast as place and point. First, place the camera's strong magnetic base on a metal surface. The magnetic base lets you easily remove and reposition the camera depending on the job - unlike a backup camera that's permanently mounted at the rear of your vehicle. Plus, the base has a smooth, non-scratch nylon backing.

The Swift Hitch SH03 camera has a rotating stem

Next, point the camera at your hitch ball or target. A stem with a rotating ball joint sits between the camera and the magnetic base. The stem smoothly rotates 360 degrees, allowing the camera to be pointed in any direction and hold its position.

A suction cup mount lets you mount the Swift Hitch SH03 camera to non-magnetic surfaces

One suction cup mount is also included (additional mount PM01 - sold separately). This triangular metal plate with 3 suction cups lets you mount the camera to a non-magnetic surface. Simply stick the suction cup mount onto the mounting surface and then place the camera's magnetic base on the plate.

If your application requires you to use the cameras while traveling, such as monitoring horses inside an enclosed trailer, the camera and extension antenna stand should be securely mounted. Pre-drilled holes let you mount the cameras and antenna stand using 1/8" screws or bolts with wing nuts (not included).

Water-Resistant Construction

The Swift Hitch SH03 camera is water resistant

The Swift Hitch cameras were constructed with water resistance in mind so that you can hitch up in any weather. A sealed plastic barrier on the front of each camera covers the infrared lights to shield them from water, and an attached cap back covers the charging port. The housing hangs over the lens like an awning to protect it from the rain. Plus, the body, stem, and base of each camera are made of durable, rustproof aluminum, and the exterior has a UV-resistant coat of bright yellow paint.

A clear plastic cap protects the rear of the Swift Hitch SH03 camera from water

One clear plastic cap is included (additional cap PB04 - sold separately) to protect one camera's rear end from rain or other inclement weather, particularly when the lens is pointed at your hitch ball. The cap fits snugly onto the back of the camera. The on/off button can be pressed while the cap is on, but the cap will have to be removed when you want to plug in the charging cable.

Hand-Held Monitor with Full-Color LCD Screen

The Swift Hitch SH03 hand-held monitor

The hand-held monitor features a 2-1/2", high-resolution LCD screen that displays crisp, clear full-color pictures (images appear in black and white while camera is operating in night vision). Video is displayed in mirror image by default to give you the same viewpoint as your rearview mirror, but this setting can be switched to non-mirror image if you prefer. The monitor has a battery life of up to 4 hours when fully charged. It is recommended that the monitor battery be fully charged before first use.

To turn the monitor on or off, hold down the button on the front for 3 - 5 seconds. To switch the display from mirror-image view to non-mirror-image view, press the button quickly. An LED indicator light changes color to signal when the monitor is on (green), when it's charging while the power is on (yellow), and when it's charging while the power is off (red). The light flashes when the unit is in the non-mirror-image setting so you know what perspective you've got on the display.

A toggle button located on the side of the monitor lets you quickly change the channel between the 2 cameras. The included video-out cable plugs into the side of the monitor so that you can transfer images to a larger screen or a recording device.

The Swift Hitch SH03 monitor mounted to a dash

The lightweight, durable plastic unit has a contoured shape so that it is easy to hold in one hand. For dash mounting, two 7/8" hook-and-loop strips (similar to Velcro) with adhesive backing are included. Or you can use the Swift Hitch windshield mount kit (sold separately) to keep the monitor easily within view.

Wireless, Portable System

This portable, completely wireless system is simple to set up and convenient to use. It does not need to be hardwired to your vehicle, nor does it rely on your vehicle's battery to work. Instead, it uses radio frequency to transmit video from the cameras to the monitor and it is powered by rechargeable lithium-ion batteries. There's no permanent installation or drilling required, so the system can go anywhere you go - from the jobsite to the campsite, from your work truck to your SUV.

The included 12-volt DC cable lets you charge the monitor and one of the cameras or both cameras simultaneously. An AC-to-DC adapter (sold separately) can be used to charge the system from a 110-volt AC wall outlet.

Swift Hitch Digital Wireless Hitch Aligner System w Monitor, 2 Camera - Night Vision - 10-Hr Battery - SH03D

Average Customer Rating:  4.5 out of 5 stars   (17 Customer Reviews)

Portable, wireless hitch monitoring system uses interference-free digital transmission. Two water-resistant cameras come with magnet mounts and 1 suction cup mount for simple setup. Hand-held monitor has a toggle switch to view from either camera.


Reception range is better than stated. We have an extended cab F350, pulling a 3-horse, slant-load gooseneck. We did not need to use the coax cable for the rear camera, the signal / reception at the monitor in the cab was just fine from the camera's antenna. Connection times between the display and the cameras are reasonable. The display is a bit dim in daylight but viewing from the cab is ok. Battery life appears to be good. Initial setup was quite simple, really nothing had to be done except turn on the cammeras and the monitor, and everything linked up automatically. All in all, a good system.


The first unit I received was defective (screen was too dark to be useful) but was replaced without any problems by etrailer. Great and helpful customer service, impressive!


Just used on the last RV trip and the picture in monitor was very clear and the camera were easy to use and positioned, a great buy well worth it.


The Monitor will not Charge. I reported it to etrailer and was told to contact Swift Hitch which I did through their website. I've heard nothing back from them to date. I would appreciate if it can be replaced. Thanks so very much.


I liked the two camera feature.


Product was delivered in a timely manner and was of made of good quality.


It’s ok. A little glitchy from time to time and screen resolutions not great but usually does the job.


Just finished charging monitor and both camera work at short distances. Hope to try them out on my vehicles this weekend

    Yes, you will be able to connect the video out cable from the receiver on the Swift Hitch Digital Wireless Hitch Aligner System # SH03D to a larger monitor.

  • Using 2 Backup Cameras at the Same Time with One Monitor

  • Does Swift Hitch Portable Water Resistant Wireless 2 Camera System Come with Storage Case
    The storage case # PC02 is available separately for Swift Hitch camera systems such as # SH03D. It is not included with the camera system. But it does come with similar system # SH02DIGITAL. The difference between this one and # SH03 is that the SH03D comes with 2 cameras and SH02DIGITAL only has 1 camera.

  • Loss in Signal on Highway with the Swift Hitch Digital Wireless Hitch Aligner System
    The extension antenna that is included with the Swift Hitch Digital Wireless Hitch Aligner System part # SH03D will more than likely help to improve the signal while traveling. However, you cannot add a camera from this system to your Swift Hitch Digital Wireless Hitch Alignment System part # SH02DIGITAL. I would try to reposition the camera and monitor on the system you have now but if the signal is still interrupted, then your only option would be replacement. I spoke to my contact at...

  • Recommended Night Vision Backup Camera System for 32-Foot Travel Trailer

  • Two Camera Swift Hitch Setup with Longer Battery Life
    We have a Swift Hitch setup that comes with two cameras and a single monitor like you are looking for that has a 10 hour battery life like you are wanting as well. For that you'd want the part # SH03D. There isn't a way to remotely turn the camera off and on though. If you permanently mount the base of the camera you can pop the ball socket from the base out so that you can then take the camera back and charge it.

  • Backup Camera Recommendation to See Behind 5th Wheel Trailer
    The Swift Hitch camera, # 04928, would work but you would want to mount it at the top rear of the 5th wheel trailer in order to receive and maintain a signal. The problem with that is you have to manually turn the camera on so having it up high would make doing so difficult. I recommend version # SH03D which is a 2 camera system but it comes with an antenna so that the signal will be stronger to the in-cab monitor. That way you can mount the camera in an easy to reach place and not worry...

  • Can a Backup Camera Be Used at the Back of an RV or Trailer
    You can use a backup camera on a trailer if you wanted to. What I recommend is the 2 camera system, # SH03D. It comes with an additional antenna to ensure the best reception for long distances. This system will only work if you turn the camera(s) on. It does not operate using the running light circuit or reverse light circuit.

  • Recommended Camera System for Use with Truck Camper and Horse Trailer
    Since you have both a slide-in truck camper and also a horse trailer what I suggest to give you the best possible visibility is a wireless 2-camera system. The Swift Hitch Wireless Digital Camera System # SH03D features two cameras that you can position where you need them (say, one on the camper and one inside the horse trailer) and includes night-vision capability. The hand-held monitor will let you keep an eye on the horses even while you're tucked inside the camper at night and the...

  • Recommended Wireless Back-up Camera That Will Pick Up Same Signal as an Identical Model
    Any wireless device that operates on 2.4 GHz (like a Bluetooth or in-car internet) can interfere with the reception quality of a wireless backup camera. My favorite option that you may want to consider is the Swift Hitch portable wireless back-up 2 camera system # SH03D. You will be able to monitor each camera from two different angles. This backup camera system is water resistant and has built-in infrared lights to allow 15 feet of night vision. I have included a video for you too.

  • Best Backup Camera System for Towing a Gooseneck Trailer
    I have a great option for you that will assist with both coupling your gooseneck trailer as well as seeing behind the gooseneck trailer while in tow. For this, I recommend the Swift Hitch Digital Wireless Hitch Aligner System part # SH03D because it is wireless and you don't have to mount a bulky monitor on your dash. The Swift Hitch cameras also have night vision so you would not be limited by the time of day when using them.

  • Recommendation for Backup Cameras on Back of Truck and Back of Trailer
    Hopkins Smart Hitch Backup Camera and Hitch Aligner System Item # HM50002 only has one input so to add a second system it would require a complete new system. What I recommend is to use Swift Hitch Wireless Hitch Aligner System w Monitor, 2 Cameras - Night Vision - 10-Hr Camera Battery Item # SH03D which is a wireless, 2-camera system that will allow you to switch between the 2 different views from the cameras. I have included a link to a video review of this system for you.

  • Does External Antenna Have to be Used for Swift Hitch Back Up Camera System SH03
    The camera with the short antenna for camera system # SH03D has a transmission distance of 200 feet if the path from the camera to the monitor is unobstructed. A 40 foot trailer should not be a problem. The second camera and the antenna would allow you to put the camera where it would otherwise have the signal obstructed but you do not have to use it. It does come with a shorter antenna as well that mounts directly to the back of the second camera.

  • Can the Hopkins Smart Hitch Backup Camera Part # HM50002 Work with 2 Cameras
    I would run the video cable behind the carpet and plastic which will conceal the wiring. I included a installation video for you to look at too. Other than tape to attach your monitor, you could always permanently mount it instead. The tape is quite durable though. The best way to utilize a 2 camera system (front and back of your truck) is going with the Swift Hitch wireless 2 camera system part # SH03D. Another benefit of the Hopkins # SH03D is you can turn the cameras on or off as needed...

  • Recommended Wireless Backup Camera for Chevrolet Duramax Towing 24 FT 5th Wheel Trailer
    My personal recommendation is for the Swift Hitch Wireless Hitch Aligner System, # SH03D, which is a 2-camera wireless system and features automatic night vision. One camera could be mounted to your Chevrolet Duramax Truck to assist with hitching up your fifth wheel and the other could be used at the back of your trailer. With cameras having a radio frequency transmission distance of at least 200 ft, the length of your truck and trailer will be no problem. A couple accessories that go...

I have linked a video review of this system for you.
