Milenco Aero Mirror

I need advice from Forum members as to which model of Mileno Aero Mirror to get to tow an Escape 19". There are Mileno Aero 3 and Grand Areo 3 towing mirrors. Which one are you guys using and why? I traded in my 2012 for a 2016 model Yukon. My old Chevy/GMC towing mirror fit 07- up is no longer fitting a 2016 model GMC Yukon. I would appreciate inputs your guys can offer.

I meant 19 feet Escape not 19".

I use the Grand. It is larger than the Aero 3, and for me, worth the extra cost. I've tried a number of different "add on" mirrors, and find them the best of the lot.

I also use the Grand Aero mirrors. I am mostly happy with them. Once set up the first time, it is very fast to take them off and reinstall them with minimal additional adjustments required. Mine are subject to a little more vibration than I would like, and I am thinking of doing a modification to try to eliminate that; maybe for next spring. I would buy them again.

Tonny,
We also bought the Grand Aero model. We've had them a couple of years and they have been trouble free. We use them with a Highlander and a 19' Escape. I usually remove them once I get where I am going for clearance in parking lots and skinny roads. Years ago, when in Yellowstone, my wife was admonished by a ranger who let us know that tow mirrors were to be removed if not towing in the park. As congested as it gets there, removing the mirrors was probably a good idea. With the Milencos, it only takes a minute and when you put them back on, it's easy to "hit" the previous mounting spot so they do not need adjustment each time. Best of luck
Dave

We're using the Grand Aero as well and are quite happy. Towing a 19' with a 2004 Tundra.

Another Grand Aero here.
I don't understand the design of the tear drop design, unless they hope to reduce vibration.

I use the Aero 3-slight vibration but otherwise a good add on tow mirror. Either design should be more than adequate.

Thnak you for valueable feed backs. The info were very helpful to guide my decision making. I will definitely get a Grand aero 3 period.

We have the Grand Aero ones also---and same situation in Yellowstone where we were stopped and told to take the mirrors off.
