Back up camera

I am considering the purchase of a swift hitch wireless camera model sho1 or sho2. Has anyone used this camera? It looks very versatile but I am curious how well it would work behind a 31 ft 5th wheel when backing. I want to use it to hook up the truck and trailer and then again when backing the trailer into tight spots.
I am open to suggestions on other products but want it to be wireless.

I just so happen to have the camera you speak of. I can say with all honesty that this is the first camera I have owned, so I have nothing to compare it to. I have owned it for about 6 mo and have used it prob that many times. Works great but I'm not too sure about the distance you speak of. I have only used it on the back of my pu when connecting to our tt. However since we bought a new pu we now have a back up camera on the tailgate, so I prob won't be using it much anymore. Let me know if you decide to go with the swift hitch. I might just make you a deal on it. Good luck with your decision...

I use it to back up to my 26 ft tt and it works great. While backing into my driveway I thought I would try it on the bumper, but found I have a hard time judging distances with it.

To hitch up , I use it for the correct alignment then pick a spot where the tt needs to in the frame to get the ball correctly positioned. Took a few tries to figure things out.
