We are new to the camping world! We just bought a 25 ft Apex travel trailer! I use a Nissan f
6 cylinder to pull it! Just wanted to know some ideals on what you recommend that I can buy so I can see what is behind me as I'm driving down the road! That's the only thing I don't like so far !

When we pulled a 30' travel travel, I just used mirror extensions.

If you cannot afford to have your mirrors switched out and dont have extenders, try those little round magnifying mirrors. They worked for us...now we have a new truck and I will have to either buy more or buy extenders, not sure what i will do this year. I am guessing those little round mirrors wont work for you though....better get extensions....if you find a good price on extenders please let me know where.

Update: our mirror extensions aren't working out , still can't see out around the camper. I think we should have bought the larger ones. This being said...they did hold tight to the truck mirrors.

Could always try a camera. I know the cheaper wireless.ones don't have the range to put on the back of a trailer, but I have seen trailers with cameras.
