Backup Camera that Can be Used at Back of Trailer


Could I use this as a back up camera on my travel trailer Jayco X17C I’m guessing from back of trailer to inside of vehicle would be about 45’ max and I would be able to stick camera on bumper of trailer?


Expert Reply:

The Rear View Safety Wireless Hitch Camera # RVS-83112 could potentially work as a backup camera for your trailer but realistically the range probably wouldn't be good enough. This has a 45 foot unobstructed range which unfortunately is not the same as 45 feet from the inside of your vehicle, through the back window and then around a large enclosed trailer.

For a similar setup that has a larger range (300 feet) the Swift Hitch part # 04928 would be a much better option. I attached a review that we got from a customer with a 31 foot long trailer and he told us it worked well at the back of the trailer as well.
