Yes, Amazon is where we bought our Milenco mirrors for our 2014 Jeep GC. They were fine on a trip last year from Arizona to NE Oregon... where the driver's side mirror is now somewhere on the side of I-84 northbound. And the passenger side mirror was graciously accepted as a return/full refund by Amazon.

We replaced the Milenco with McKesh and have been very satisfied with them ever since. No scratches, no deforming the rubber seal, easy to use:

We have added a stick-on convex CIPA mirror (both sides) for improved distance/wide-angle visibility - works well:

Amazon.com: CIPA 49402 4" x 5.5" HotSpots Oblong Stick-On Convex Mirror: Automotive

FWIW....

I just bought these to pick up our new AS on Saturday. We drove from Colonial AS in NJ, to Texas with them on, it snowed, iced, rained and the wind was rough at times and they stayed on with no problems.

They were about 30 each. I used them on our Tundra.

On my boat cover I give the straps a single twist to keep them from vibrating in the wind. I don't know if you have enough room to do this on your McKesh but it would be something you could try

I did use a similar technique to the one that richw46 is using when I had the McKesh mirrors. The idea is to provide a wing profile as apposed to the flat edge facing the wind. I used a plastic tie to cinch the strap, making it oval, and that worked just fine. I now use Milenco mirrors, only because they are a bit less cumbersome . Jim

If you have a rear view camera system like a Voyager wireless installed on the back of the Airstream does that satisfy the law?

I have used the Grand Aero from Milco and liked them very stable and secure:

Amazon.com: JR Products 2912 Grand Aero Towing Mirror - Pair: Automotive

I now have a Ford F250 so I don't use these anymore (great condition only used 8 times} PM my if you are interested in buying them

We have the Voyager rearview camera which we like but I think that you also need the side mirrors to see what is in the lane next to you that the rear view camera won't pickup

It seems like many prefer the Grands due to being a little larger.
