Tow-N-See Mirrors

Our Fellow streamers

This past holiday weekend marked our first outing for 2006. Hershey and Lancaster in PA had the only vacancies in the state on May 26 th and we were forced to camp there. Of course we have learned never to leave home on a holiday weekend without a reservation-- but a good time was had by all and our own Philadelphia Story will be written sometime later.

We would like to recommend the Tow-N-See towing mirrors which we tried for the first time. They are attached to the existing mirrors via a suction cup and stayed put throughout our trip. Of course I was sceptical but the proof is in the seeing and since they sit on the existing mirrors they adjust from the inside of the vehicle. If you live in the city like we do, tow a trailer on two to four occasions a year and use your TV as your daily driver, you have to try these out. Does anyone out there agree?

I hadn't see that type before. They sure look like they would bounce around, or heaven forbid - blow off Looks like a good idea if they work as good as you say.

Interesting - the mounting system is clever. Nice cheap alternative.

I was searching on Google and see we've discussed this before

http://www.airforums.com/forum...ors-22104.html

I missed it that go-round. I think for the price it might be worth picking one of these up.

Hello Friends

We bought ours at Foland Sales Inc. here in New York State at around $27. each but there are dealers in most states as well as Canada and Europe.

If only we had seen these before the hefty investment in Schefenackers, we could have been at least $700 better off.

By the way, Foland's phone # is 800 333 1682 and they will advise you to get the flat model for the driver side and the concave version for the passenger side.

It feels good when a product works the way it's supposed to.

We just picked up the new Tow and See mirrors at a local rv shop, in stock, $26.99 each. One regular for the drivers side and one concave for the passenger side---you can see the entire world on that side! Attachment is a pleasure. They are super light, small profile, easy to store, adhere wonderfully with the turn system and the inside adjustment with the power mirrors is a fantastic ability to have. We never could get the CIPAs just right and were virtually useless, not to mention they were scratching the paint on the truck's mirrors and not being able to be tightened down anymore.

Heading out on Friday and excited to have them! Who'd have thunk, I'd get so excited over tow mirrors. If they stay on and I have read that they do over at rv.net these are the solution for those without permanent installation.

Thank you SilverCamper for this thread!!!! I never would have known about them without reading it here.

I have a set of them. Both are the flat mirror. I only use them to give me a better view when backing into our storage garage. The garage door is 10' wide and I need all the help I can get backing into it.

The mirrors are solid, light and do stay on very well. I left them on for the 20 mile drive home from our storage garage. If I were using them to tow, I would want is a larger mirror as these are fairly small. I'd also get the convex version.

I think I ordered mine through rvwholesalers.com e-bay store. They had the best price at the time.

Should I have done that? I didn't know whether to get both the same or not, but read somewhere to get as stated, then considered that perhaps regular installed mirrors are one regular and one that says objects appear closer. ???? If I got that wrong I can get two the same, even before I leave. Any further comments on that in particular?

Glad to hear another experience to verify that they do stay on. Oops, they are convex, don't know my ins and outs.

Hello Friends

We have learnt so much from this forum that we are thrilled to have something to share with you guys.

The salesman suggested the flat model for the driver side and the concave version for the passenger side and that worked very well for us. I suggest you try this combination first and later you can reverse them and see how you like them then. This experiment will cost nothing Carol.
