A great way to improve your towing safety on the road and avoid obstacles when you are reversing is to use a set of towing mirrors. Better visibility gives you greater confidence towing and reversing. Towing mirrors extend from your vehicle side mirrors to provide a better angle of vision to the sides of your caravan or trailer and behind it. There are a few options available with various methods of attaching to your vehicle including: clip-on mounting, strap-on mounting, magnetic mounting and full replacement towing mirrors which integrate perfectly with your vehicle. The mirrors vary in size, ease of use, vibrations and of course price.
We offer a number of brands in-store. Our best-selling towing mirrors are the Milenco range of Aero 3 and Grand Aero 3 mirrors and ClearView mirrors. The Milenco Aero 3 and Grand Aero 3 are a popular choice with our customers. They attach to the vehicle’s existing mirrors with a clamp and are designed to fit all vehicles. For ease of use the mirrors are able to be unscrewed without removing the clamps – great for quick removal when you are parked on site for the night. The Milenco range are well designed clamp-on towing mirrors and are a great budget option. Our customer feedback has been that these are easy to use and a great alternative to other strap-mounted mirrors.
The premium option and our top pick for towing mirrors are ClearView mirrors. They are a complete replacement for your existing side mirrors and are available with either electric or manual adjustment options. The ClearView design incorporates two mirror surfaces – a larger mirror for viewing the sides of your van and a smaller convex mirror for viewing into the traffic lanes to eliminate blindspots. ClearView mirrors are superior to other towing mirrors on the market in that they offer a wide extension and better visibility in a larger mirror without the vibrations that are a common effect of the clip-on mirror. ClearView mirrors are available in either black or chrome, look great and are available to suit most vehicles. The pricing for Clearview mirrors depends on a few factors for the specific model of vehicle, whether they are an electric or manual adjustment and the features of your existing side mirrors including indicators and even GPS. At the RV Service Centre we are able to install the mirrors while you wait in our customer lounge and we allow an hour for installation.
