The Milenco Grand Aero 3 Mirror offers all the benefits of the Aero 3 Mirror, plus the maximum view possible, combined with very high stability. With the Grand Aero 3 Mirror it enables you to see the top and bottom of your caravan so you can avoid hazards, such as low trees branches, sign posts sticking out etc. As you would expect from Milenco, this is a very high quality product, manufactured with the best materials available.
This is the flat version in a twinpack which comes with a good quality storage bag.
For over 20 years Milenco towing mirrors have led the market, out performing all others in comparative product tests. The first Milenco Aero towing mirror was totally new for 2007. Every year since the mirror has been updated and improved to keep this product at the head of the market. This is the best-selling towing mirror in the world. It has been designed to offer superior vision and a vibration free view far past your caravan. It also complies with the very latest International regulations, and far exceeds 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, which will offer extremely long life and will not discolour after a few years.
The unique and new clamping system (patented plus international patents pending) now on the Grand Aero 3 Mirror is further improved to have much greater grip and improved fitment. The clamps will now fit on vehicles with compound tapered flanges on the vehicle mirror housing, such as on 2016 Land Rovers and Jaguar's. These new clamps offer an outstanding and versatile system, which is engineered to fit all current (post 1995 - 2017) cars, 4x4's and vans. This system has easy to use thumb wheels on tilting axis, which enable the clamps to 'shape' to the contours of the vehicles mirror, allowing totally versatile fitting. Another innovation of this design is the upgraded gripper system, so you do not lose the grip pads. This design also does away with unreliable straps that transfer vibration.
Registered Design The Grand Aero 3 Mirror head design (Registered Design) utilises airflow around your car to stabilise and balance the mirror head at speed. This mirror has been extensively tested at speeds up to 220kph (137mph), to ensure that you get the best vision possible. This design also offers superior performance in high winds and the effect of passing large commercial vehicles has been minimised.
The Law concerning Towing Mirrors If you want to avoid prosecution from the police, please read the following few paragraphs which explain the circustances when towing mirrors are a legal requirement. Despite what the law clearly states, there does appear to be confusion amongst caravaneer's about what the law actually states, or if a law exists at all!
If your caravan is wider than your car, it is a legal requirement that you fit additional e-marked mirrors on both sides. In Europe and Australia, you must be able to see 4 metres out from either side of the caravan or trailer 20 metres behind the driver. In America you must be able to see 2.4 metres out from either side of the caravan or trailer, 10.7 metres behind the driver. Effectively both standards specifying the field of view are very similar and just describe it in different ways. What is common to the standard is it specifies a field view from a straight line parallel behind the caravan, or in other words you must be able to see down the side of the caravan. The simplest way to ensure you are legal is to ensure your Mirrors are wider than the caravan, so if you look from behind the caravan ensure you can see both mirrors sticking out.
Like the slogan says "if you can't see my mirrors, I can't see you" (and you are breaking the law).
If your car is fitted with door mirrors approved to UN46.2,46.3, or 46.4 (ADR14.2) 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.
If you are caught towing blind or with inproper towing mirrors you can be:
- prosecuted by the police - given 3 points on your licence - fined up to £1,000
On tow vehicles confirming to directive 2003/97EC or sold after January 2007, the towing mirrors may project 25cms further than the widest part of the caravan. On tow vehicles pre dating this directive, the mirrors may project 20cm further than the widest part of the caravan.
Since 12th of December 2007 it is a legal requirement that you have type approved (e-marked) mirrors on both sides of the tow vehicle.
The use of towing mirrors in some European countries is mandatory and if stopped, drivers can face on-the-spot fines for towing without the use of a towing mirror.
2 Customer Reviews on Milenco Grand Aero 3 Towing Mirror - Flat (Twin Pack)

I don't normally write reviews but these mirrors outclass my last set of mirrors so dramatically I wanted to compliment Milenco on them. Would obviously recommend to anyone!
Want The BEST Towing Mirrors?
by CoolUnc (18 Nov 2009)
These towing mirrors are not cheap but they are undoubtedly the best. They are not so much made as engineered. The quality is excellent. Nobody is ever going to buy towing mirrors because they desire them but, if you have touring caravan and need a set of towing mirrors, then you won't go far wrong by purchasing these. Nothing else I have seen gives such excellent rearward vision. They are the only mirrors on the market for the caravan owner who refuses to make compromises. They really will help you to tow more safely. Buy them and see them as insurance rather than simply mirrors. You won't regret it. Oh, did I mention that they come in a smart carry bag too?
