Could I have comment on what are the best towing mirrors to suit 4X4's towing a caravan. I currently have a Discovery and will change to a L/C 100 in the not to distant future. The van is a 25' Jayco.

There are quite a lot of models available, so I am sure you forum folks have the answers of what works best. This of course will save me a heap of potential drama if I just buy what looks good.

Ora are the best but get the ones with the support arms, I've got the standard ones and still vibrate a small amount, so with the support arms should solve the problem of vibration.

Mirrors have their limitations.....there is still gunna be a massive blind spot that you can't see for several metres behind your rig........

Why not add your name to the list that is currently being compiled of people interested in a discount for the bulk purchase of a Poron CM60 reversing camera/s set-up. There was a post a week or so ago about it. John (Vic) is trying to coordinate those interested and may soon be going to put up a reminder post.

There was another post about this by Wayne (NSW) a couple of weeks ago and he included photos of his fitting etc. I was impressed by the way he said he was able to clearly see (day or night courtesy of the infrared feature) right up to the back of his troopie, cutting out a 15 metre blind spot.

Not trying to "force" you into anything, but it is certainly worth considering.

hi blackmax. Have recently swapped from Disco V8 to LC100 6cyl. I 've found Ora the best by miles. You can buy them with or without the supports and the bloke told me to try em without. I was a bit sceptical after past experiences but I find them ok without. The supports are a bit pricey if you don't need em.

Agree With bove,
After using many different mirrors over the last 20 years I now use the Ora magnetic mirrors and have found them easy to use plus very little vibration.
The use of reversing cameras instead is still not legal in all states however they are of great benefit.
I used to have a handle on life, but it broke.

Cheers Dodg.

Not cheap but worth the outlay. Also you can actually buy individual parts to repair them if the need arises.

Have vision plus (i think) big mirror head buy from same place as others suggested, these clip in top of door at bottom of window and belt clips under bottom of door and tentions tight with a thumb bolt. Do not move vhen fitted, and can be removed and replaced with out having to readjust mirror every time.
