Re: towing mirros
I can't see behind me, if I'm driving straight. I can see most of the lane beside me, so passing is not a problem. If I really need to see behind me I "wag" just a little (a slight "steering event" combined with a well timed look in the mirror - works every time and if done correctly there is no added vibration).
As for backing into sites - I thought that's what the sturdy bumper was for - to tell you when you have gone too far....
