Touring, of course, once you have arrived at your campsite or holiday park cant be a fabulously relaxing experience. For many of us, though, the getting there and getting back is a slightly more serious affair. We need our wits about us travelling around the often congested roads of the UK in summer and we certainly need to know what's behind us or over-taking us at any one time! At Leisureshopdirect, we know that having a decent set of towing mirrors is one of the more important camper van items a tourer can buy. Of course, towing mirrors are a legal requirement where the view in the normal rear-view mirror is obscured by a trailer or caravan but our needs and preferences vary. Take a look at the high quality, versatile and cost-effective options for caravan towing mirros we have on these pages.

Towing Mirrors for Caravans

A flat mirror is recommended for the offside, and a convex mirror for the nearside. Caravan towing mirrors are a legal requirement if your caravan is wider than your car, as the law states that when towing a caravan you must have adequate view of the rear of the car and along both sides of your caravan. Caravan towing mirrors really are. therefore essential caravan spares & parts; we expect that you will find the towing mirrors to suit both your towing vehicle and the unit you are towing on these pages, from extra large mirrors, to smaller more compact caravan towing mirrors, from carry bags to sfaty straps to secure your towing mirrors.

Milenco Towing Mirrors

At the 2007 NEC Caravan & Boat Show, Milenco Limited re-wrote the book on towing mirrors, when it launched the award winning Aero Towing Mirror. The Aero Mirror offered unrivalled stability at very high towing speeds. It was the first mirror to meet the pedestrian safety standards and the new European standards. This year Milenco is launching their Grand Aero Towing Mirror. The Grand Aero Mirror offers all the benefits of the original Aero Mirror, plus the maximum view possible, combined with very high stability. As you would expect from Milenco, this is a very high quality product, manufactured with the best materials available. The clamping screws are stainless steel and turn in brass inserts, which will never corrode, and the mirror is fitted with chrome safety glass. The head is the largest ever used on a caravan towing mirror, and has been designed to be extremely stable, shaped to enable you to see far past your caravan and cars in all three lanes on the motorway. Like the Aero Towing Mirror, the Grand Aero Towing Mirror fits all cars, 4 x 4?s and vans produced since 1995. It is available in pairs, complete with carry case. Remember, when you are towing your caravan or any other trailer that is wider then the narrowest part of the rear of your vehicle, it is a legal requirement that you fit additional towing mirrors. These mirrors must be E-Marked. If you are towing blind, without towing mirrors, or using illegal towing mirrors (not EMarked) you can be prosecuted by the police, given 3 points on your licence and fined up to £1000.00. The Milenco Aero Convex Twinpack is a very high quality product and is manufactured with the highest quality materials available. Milenco Flat and Convex Mirrors The flat mirror enables the driver to see exactly what is behind them in the correct proportion. The convex mirror makes the image smaller but enables the driver to see more.

Reich Towing Mirrors for Caravans

Milenco don't corner the market! We also stock a range of high quality, versatile Reich towing mirrors and single Maypole towing mirrors for caravans.

Good choice of Towing Mirrors

There are many different types of mirrors and different ways of fixing them to your car. You can buy caravan mirrors with clamps to fix them on to your car mirrors, stretchy rubber bands which fit around the back of your car mirror, or even a mirror with a suction pad You can buy either a flat glass mirror or a convex mirror. The convex mirror will obviously provide a wider field of vision but it is down to personal preference as to which you buy. Reich Extra Large Towing Mirror has a large head for improved vision and safety.

The equipment you use with your trailer or caravan must meet certain safety standards.

You must have an adequate view of the road behind you. If your caravan or trailer is wider than the rear of the towing vehicle, you may need to fit suitable towing mirrors. If you tow without proper towing mirrors you can be:
1. prosecuted by the police
2. given 3 points on your licence
3. fined up to £1,000

Laws on Towing Mirror requirments


Have you ever looked into the law on towing mirrors? If you have you may be shocked to find that almost half of caravanners either don't know the law or totally disregard this essential safety rule.

Many caravanners treat towing mirrors as a caravan accessory that they are able to do without, however the law says differently. Extension mirrors should not protrude more than 250mm (roughly 10") beyond the widest part of the caravan. There is a legal requirement of you to have mirrors so that you are able see clearly an area that is 4 meters wide out into the carriageway on the offside, and along the kerb to the nearside and for a distance of 20 meters behind the driver. A caravan is significantly wider than a car even a large 4x4 and you just can't adhere to the law if you don't fit towing mirrors.

Drivers of larger tow cars and 4x4's may think that they are OK because they can shift their mirrors so that they incorporate some rearward vision but whatever they see just isn't good enough.

What mirrors should be fitted?

The law demands two functional rear view mirrors. There has to be one on the offside and one internally. Most cars are equipped with a nearside mirror as well since when towing, the interior mirror isn't a lot of use because all one can see is the caravan following you. It therefore follows that you need two external mirrors to conform to the law. It's highly unlikely that any towed caravan will not need extended mirrors so, to be legal and safe it is advisable always to fit extended mirrors when towing regardless, unless you are absolutely sure that you are adhering to the law. Better safe than sorry when stopped by the Police!

It is advised that all towing mirrors comply to EC requirments.An E number should be displayed on the mirror to prove that they are EC compliant and therefore legal. It is recommended that the offside mirror should to be flat glass, so that speed and distance of approaching traffic can be accurately assessed. The Milenco Flat Glass Twin Pack Towing Mirrors are advertised to be the worlds best performing towing mirror and are E marked. The nearside mirror may be convex. The Milenco Aero Convex Mirror has a unique clamping system which is engineered to fit all current cars, 4x4's and vans and is E marked.

Always remove your towing mirrors after pitching if you are going to take the car off the site

You must remember to get rid of the mirrors when you're not towing. If you don't, they will extend beyond 250mm from the side of the car, therefore aren't legal.

It's a legal requirement for you to fit additional towing mirrors when you are towing your caravan or any other trailer which is wider than the narrowest portion of the rear of your vehicle. Should you be towing blind, without towing mirrors, or using illegal towing mirrors (not E-marked), you can be prosecuted.
