Inside Rear View Mirror

On a recent trip with the grandkids, I found myself wondering what was going on in the back while i was driving.

Has anyone ever installed some sort of a rear view mirror at the front of the vehicle and if so, where and how did you mount it and where did you source it?

I have a 2011 Berkshire 390QS

Thanks

I have wanted one for sometime but haven't looked into it. Let us know what you find. I have seen them on school busses.

NAPA has the standard rear view mirror that you mount on your windshield part number 730-6245 for a 12 inch also they have the school bus style with convex lens part number 730-6027 says it has a clamp on mount.

Have you considered looking at a children's/baby store? They make a few different type of mirrors (normal, wide angle etc) with suction cups for viewing. I had one that mounted on the back window that could be seen from the regular rear view mirror in my pickup so I could see the kids riding backwards in their car seats.Probably cheaper and if you find it annoys you easier to remove.

Try a marine store because they sell mirrors that attach to the windshield that is used for seeing the skiers behind the boat

I drive a school bus and really get used to having rearward visibility....would you trust that many monsters in close proximity to you????

Honestly, it's only used for glancing on activity behind you....with road vibrations and such there's not a lot of detail to be gained.

I purchased a rear view mirror from the automotive section of a local chain store (sorry it's a Canadian thing.......Canadian Tire) It's about 12" wide, and slightly convex to give a wider view. I mounted it by attaching to my sun visor...........the visor is useless for being a visor....I have the visor in the down position and attached the mirror to that. It gives me enough information of what may be happening behind....but it vibrates a fair bit too.

Thanks for the reply! What kind of a mount does it come with? I checked the site and it really doesn't show. Where did you mount the mirror?
