Towing a small travel trailer - Mirror extensions????

We are looking at a couple of travel trailers, specifically a Lance 1685 and an Aerolite 195QB. One is 21' long and the other 24' long, both are 8' wide.

This will be our first TT and wondered if we would need mirror extensions on our JGC Overland.

Thanks in advance for your help folks !

Check your local state laws. Some states REQUIRE that you're able to see certain spots behind your trailer.

My state doesn't, but I still have them and wouldn't tow without them. I can't see immediately behind my popup without them due to the width of the camper.

I have some inexpensive extension mirrors from Amazon for use with my TrailManor 2720SL but needed to add a wireless back up camera to see immediately behind. When not towing they stow in the spare tire well.

Re: Towing a small travel trailer - Mirror extensions????

After a lot of research, I decided to go with these :

Amazon.com: JR Products 2912 Grand Aero Towing Mirror - Pair: Automotive

Lots of good reviews plus easy on and off and they fit virtually all vehicles.
