I have our test drivers slated to take it out and get some feedback. Once I find a free day (show season will be the death of me) I plan on taking it out as well.
Ha! Your guys gotta love you! They probably wish you'd stay off this forum!
Thanks...will be watching for your test-drive report!
Good luck at the shows!

Well, glad to see it is an improvement. I remember we purchased the same one. I guess we should take it out of the box, install it and give it the "bounce" test, too!

We bought side-mirror extenders, but haven't used them yet. Out of all the issues, to date, this is the one my husband is most unhappy about. He has even wondered if it could be a recall issue??

Be safe, and keeping those post coming, everyone!
The mirrors are OEM MB. You have to understand that FR does not, and cannot fiddle with the MB cab/chassis side of the motorhome. Also, FR I would assume, order the longest side mirrors available from MB. I believe, but am not positive, that the driver view, for the side mirrors decreased when FR widened the Solera during the redesign a couple yrs ago. My '12 doesn't have that issue.

Let all know how your extenders work out. Good luck

Okay, thank you. Glad you don't have that issue.
Our GMC Denali P/U has mirrors that can be pulled out. They were a must when we towed our fifth wheel. We'll see how the extenders work out on the MH.
