I got to wondering if the towing mirrors (the tube-ish ones in a square U shape) off of like a motorhome or a u haul truck might work because i really hate these mirrors. Help please?
don't know how to adjust the tension, or don't know how to adjust the sight path ?
side view mirrors are for seeing what is BESIDE you in the next lane, not for seeing what is behind you.
that's cleared up...
sounds like you don't know how to adjust the tension on your stock mirrors... it's under there, and about 4 minutes to do. check it out. you might like them when they aren't flopping around.
if you really want huge RV style mirrors, there are clip on types now that you can bolt into your existing mounting holes, and not drill into the trucks door. i've seen very nice, rubber mounted types at truck stops, but don't have a brand name to offer, sorry.
having a spotter is a very good thing vs wrecking a nice, big trailer.
