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 the market leader and has been updated and improved to keep this product at the head of the market. The Grand Aero gives the driver the maximum view possible allowing them to see the top and bottom of the caravan. 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. More importantly 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.
If towing blind in the UK, (without towing mirrors), or Non Approved mirrors you can be prosecuted by the police and given 3 points on your licence and can be fined up to £1000 per offence (each side).
Milenco claim that the Aero 3 Mirrors will fit the vast majority of Cars, vans sold in the UK, and we have not had problems with any vehicle we have tried fitting them to. They do make some special shape pads that are available as an option. These optional pads are recommended for the following cars:-Aero V Pads The Aero V Pads have a lip on them in order for them to fit on cars like the 2010 onwards Kia Sorento.
Aero F PadsThe Aero F Pads have twin grooves for enhanced grip on typically VW group cars (Audi, Seat and Skoda) post 2013.
The Aero Extra Wide Mirrors and Grand Aero Extra Wide Mirrors are the same as the Aero 3 Mirrors and the Grand Aero 3 Mirrors, except for having longer arms for wider caravans, RV's or travel trailers, the Extra Wide Mirrors are only available in convex.
The arm is approximately 41cm, as opposed to the Aero standard arm of 31cm.
This enables you to have a better field of view particularly when you have a narrow car and a wide caravan.
The 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.
Should I have Flat or Convex Mirror’s ?
Worldwide Milenco sell more convex than flat Mirrors.
In the UK there is an historical preference for buying Flat Mirrors as against Convex. We believe this date’s back to the time, when other mirror’s which were convex severely distorted the rear view, as to make distance judgement impossible.
Milenco Convex Mirror’s have typically the same radius as 95% of car door mirror’s, they will give you the same field of view as you are used to when driving or reversing.
Flat Mirror’s will give a smaller field of view, than your car mirrors.
Whichever Milenco Mirror you choose you will be getting the best quality and the best field of view possible, but if you ask us our opinion which is better, we would say convex
Milenco mirrors have won every test of Mirrors globally since the mid 90’s, every Milenco mirror that has won these tests, has been convex.
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.
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.
