    I know mine isn;t the same so the mirrors are different but I find teh "suck it & see" ones best. They attach by suction to the mirror glass and are fully adjustable.

    Cost about £17 each and you are now legally required to have one on drivers & one on passenger side

    Being a Devon 'boy'; when I retire I am going to buy a caravan and drive it at 5 mph around the streets of Birmingham just to see how they like it!

    When I tow the trailer I just move the arms to the wider setting (I think its 90 degrees) and reset the mirrors. You can buy the longer arms, but I found they vibrate so much that you can see f'all
