Towing Mirrors


Among the most sought after towing equipment are towing mirrors - 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. A flat mirror is recommended for the offside, and a convex mirror for the nearside. At Leisureshopdirect.com we stock a comprehensive range of touring caravan towing mirrors. One popular range is the Milenco Towing Mirrors: for more than a decade Milenco towing mirrors have led the market, out performing all others in comparative product tests. The Milenco Aero towing mirror is totally new for 2007. It has been designed to offer superior vision and a vibration free view far past your caravan. It also complies with the very latest European regulations, and meets all legal requirements in every EU member state. This mirror also complies with the very latest pedestrian safety laws and is engineered to minimise injury in the event of an accident. This is a very high quality product and is manufactured with the highest quality materials available. The mirror screws are high-grade stainless steel and turn in brass inserts that will never corrode. The mirror glass is chrome safety glass. If you caravan is wider than your car, it is a legal requirement that you fit additional e-marked mirrors on both sides.
If your car is fitted with door mirrors approved to ece 2003/97 or ece 2005/27, or was a new car after 26th January 2007, your towing mirrors may project up to 25 cm beyond the widest point of the caravan. For older cars, your mirrors may project up to 20cm.
Reich, raydyot and route towing mirrors available.
