Towing Mirrors

I will towing our new A-Frame with a KIA Sorento. Any suggestions for add-on towing mirrors for the Sorento? Dealer has some for $112.00 and $144.00, too rich for my blood. Been looking at some on Amazon and can't decide which would be best. We will be in Vermont for a week, later in month, and can have deliveries made there. What works for you.

Don't do strap on Velcro crap, that'll vibrate too much & you'll get dizzy trying to look at'em.

I use the Grand Aero ones on my Ram. Don't know if they fit the Kia, but if they do they're a great set of mirrors. Never any vibration.

I got $20 strap on mirrors from Camping World, have been all over the country with them and they worked great.

I have a CIPA universal towing mirror. It is from my previous SUV and I don't need it with my truck. It fit the drivers mirror snugly and stuck out far enough to give me a view behind the camper. The mirror did vibrate a bit but that was never a problem.

Amazon has them for $22.64. Free shipping if you are a Prime member.

Hi Don, I see you're from Ontario so the A-Frame is likely away for the winter and you're not in a hurry. I bought my Milenco Aero 2 on Kijiji for 1/2 the price new. Might we worth keeping an eye on the listings around Oshawa to see what comes up.

** Edit: Sorry just saw that you're heading south later this month.**

Milenco Grand Aero as mentioned earlier are a good option as well. Milenco are the only mirrors I've ever used that stick out far enough to see down the side of the trailer which I love for parking.

IMO stay away from the mirrors with the rubber straps. You'll get at most a season out of them before the rubber breaks down. Had a holy &$*# moment in Niagara Falls when I looked out while stuck at a light and saw that one of the straps had snapped.
