Replacing those mirrors is something I've been planning for a while. I bought some Velvac Revolution Fold Away mirrors:

The difference between Velvac and Ramco mirrors is the Ramcos are adustable side to side for tilt where the Velvac mirrors are not. Since the Classic coach doesn't have sides that are perpendicular to the ground I'm going to have to slightly modify the mirror base to fit the contour of the coach. I felt that was a fair trade off since I got the mirrors at a pretty darn good price and they are new. The main mirror is fully adjustable from inside and they are heated. Although in Kentucky I'm not sure heated mirrors are all that important .

One thing I hate is a small mirror, especially when I'm towing. These should provide some nice clear viewing.

I'm hoping to tackle the mirror installation later this fall.
