I guess I was lucky - I never had a ranger stop me to remove my Grand Aero mirrors at Yellowstone. I did notice that Nova Scotia is the only (as far as I know) Canadian Province that requires add on mirrors be removed when not towing. I haven't seen that as a requirement for any US state, however there are some areas that it should be, for example, Nantucket Island, MA.

Iowa requires removal of mirrors.

Maine says they have to be removed but could be adjusted.

I am usually the one doing the driving however on that day in Yellowstone, Rita offered to give me a break and she would drive. She asked if we should remove the mirrors, since I had never been in compliance in my home state of Iowa, I said" why start now" ? Cause the man with the flat brimmed Smokey hat said so, that's why.. Incidentally, we were stopped in a traffic stoppage caused by a big bull buffalo. He had gored an over zealous photographer, who left about a quart on the paving before the ambulance hauled the shutterbug away.

I just did about 1200 miles towing the Escape 19 with a Lexus LX 470 (Toyota Land Cruiser) using the Milenco Aero 2 mirrors. Wind, heavy rain, interstate speeds, no vibration at all. I like the shape and function. Sounds like either model works.

Thanks everyone for the advice on the Aero Mirrors. I've added them to my list.

Cheers,

Hello,
I used to use the CIPA clamshell design on my Ram 1500 and loved them. No vibration a one time set-up and on and off takes mere seconds !!!

We are now towing our 19 with our Audi Q5 diesel for which CIPA doesn't make a towing mirror and are using a Milenco mirror and do not like them as they do fibrate and one even fell off one time. I now use elastic bands to keep them from falling off again. I wish CIPA would make a mirror for me !!!!

I also have the Milenco mirrors and like them. I never realized that in some places they have to be removed when not towing, so I'm glad I read this thread. I tended to leave them on if I was going to hook up the trailer again in a day or two; I guess I'll stop doing that. That's too bad-- they make my somewhat wimpy-looking Tacoma look kinda badass.

I have had people in campgrounds ask me about the mirrors, so at times I've been a bit concerned that someone might unscrew them and walk away with them.

You can fold the OEM mirrors against the vehicle, with the Milenco mirrors still attached.

For parking? Folding the mirrors wouldn't be appropriate for driving, of course, even without the trailer. It is handy that the Milenco clamp-on mirrors can stay on and not get banged by people coming and going from adjacent parking spots.
