Caravan Towing Mirrors: To Use or Not to Use

People who aren’t campers really don’t know what they’re missing. It’s the kind of outdoor adventure that’s different with every new trip, no matter if you visit the same campsites time and time again or head out to explore the great outdoors. Along with being your escape from the stressful everyday life, it’s also perfect in teaching you how to be more grateful for what you have and adopt a different view on life, one that’s more simplistic and takes you to your roots.

Caravan Towing Mirrors

Camping is not just something you get to enjoy for a period and then give up. Once you become a camper, it becomes your passion, so much so that you pass it on to future generations, as you go camping with your kids and then they go camping with their kids. However, before you can pride yourself on being a skilled camper, you have to make sure nothing goes amiss with your preparations. By preparations I don’t mean only choosing the campsite and packing clothing, food and drinks adequately, but also buying the necessary accessories and equipment, such as the towing mirrors.

Considering there are so many types of homes on wheels, there are the matching caravan towing mirrors for sale you can find, but one question remains: should they be used or not? Since vehicles come with mirrors of their own, people often forget the importance of towing mirrors. Even when they get informed about them, they still don’t pay that much attention to them thinking they’re not necessary but what they don’t know is they could be breaking a law. When you are stopped by police, the first thing they’re going to look for from caravan outfits is the towing mirror.

It doesn’t matter if you’re towing with a 4×4 vehicle, if your field of vision around and behind the caravan isn’t clear and there are blind spots, you have to have extension mirrors. Different states throughout Australia have different legislations, so always look for more information well before the trips and take a look at the choices of caravan towing mirrors for sale, buying based on your fixing method preference, be it clamp, suction or strap.

Being fined with points on your licence and having to pay a certain sum aren’t the only concern you should have. In case you find yourself in an accident, caused by the lack of required vision, you can say goodbye to claim payment from your insurance company. As the world of technology is fast paced, you can even enhance the towing mirror view by adding a rear view camera, designed to provide you with a better behind the caravan perspective. Better safe than sorry!

If there's one thing he hates, though, it's having pictures taken but you already guessed that from his choice of plant photo for the blog.
