    I have used an Aero 3 on my Discovery 3 and then Discovery 4. But they will not fit securely on my New 2017 Discovery as the clamps just slide off of the high gloss finish on the car mirror housings.

  2. Keith Taylor says:

    I would be concerned with the stick om mirrors pulling the car mirrors glass off there adhesieve pads as I have had two heated mirror glasses come loose and that is without the etra force added by another mirror cutting through the air.

    Mirrors are a must have when towing, and it’s the law. If like me you like a bargain, and something that is serviceable and going to last, providing they’re not going to break at the first knock they take, the most expensive aren’t the best, neither is the cheapest. We look and all have our own taste in products, take your time, if time is on your hands. Now that’s out of the way the ones I picked were new when purchased and are Leisure size Rock Steadies which I paid around seventeen pound when they had a sale on. I had my eye on them and waited for the sale in winter time about best when they are having a clear of this season’s stock, or wait until you see a CCC Show, happy Caravaning

    I’ve used Leisurewize Suck It & See Flat mirrors for a number of years without any problems. They do cover part of the original mirror but the whole sherbang can be adjusted from inside the car so that the convex part of the original mirror covers the close angle. Much to my surprise a mirror has never lost it’s “stick” while travelling.

    You did not go into the difference between Convex and normal mirrors? Which one should you use

    • Hi John. We do mention convex and flat mirrors in the individual product write-ups. Which one you use is largely down to personal preference – convex offer a wider view, but objects seem further away. Some caravanners go for a mix – flat on the offside, convex on the nearside. Hope this helps?

    FED UP SEEING PEOPLE WITH NO MIRRORS,MAKES MY BLOOD BOIL. I MENTIONED TO A GUY THAT WAS GETTING INTO HIS CAR AFTER PITCHING HIS CARAVAN THAT HE HAD NOT TAKEN HIS MIRRORS OFF AND HE TOLD ME IT WAS TO MUCH HASSLE PUTTING THEM ON AND OFF,2 DAYS LATER HE SAW ME IN THE TOILET BLOCK AND SAID HE SHOULD HAVE LISTENED TO ME AS HE WAS STOPPED BY THE POLICE GIVEN A FIXED PENALTY NOTICE AND POINTS ON HIS LICENCE. MADE MY DAY.
