It pulls like a dream with the RAV. If only I could see behind the darn thing! Off to camping world for mirror enhancement tomorrow.
I hard-wired a "wireless" back-up camera (less than $100.00) in the rear of my Scamp, to be able to see behind me.....much better than any mirrors.

I ordered a pair of the CIPA universal mount mirrors from Amazon. They should be here tomorrow and I will try them out driving up to Clarksville, TN Sunday.

I looked at a rear view cameras online but was confused by the variety of types and prices and mixed reviews. Maybe I'll get one after I learn more about them.

The mirrors are technology I can understand and will be useful towing my boat too.

Used the mirrors for the drive from southern Al to Chicago then home to Michigan. They were a big improvement. I could see behind the trailer pretty well. They jiggled a bit but held their position so no readjusting was needed. A little low volume but annoying 'singing' from the straps was cured with a piece of duct tape.

Denny, I've seen folks that will put a single twist in the strap and say that eliminates the noise from them. If you try it, let us know if it works as well as they say it does...

I've heard that too and it probably works IF the twisted strap stays tight enough. These mirror straps need to be really tight to hold the mirror in place and I think putting a twist into them would sacrifice some tension.

The duct tape was a gas station fix, I'll come up with something better in the relative luxury of my garage.

I cross my straps in an "X" pattern; the main straps are on the surface and the end beyond the buckle is tucked under. I adjust the length 1st and then clip the buckle to the hook on the mirror. It's a little difficult keeping the buckle from loosening during the hook-up but it holds itself tight with no duct tape.

We see the Li'l Snoozy parked at the warehouse on the frontage road parallel to SC I-26 on every trip to Asheville. It really is a cute little trailer. One of these days we'll stop in to see the inside, too.

We went to the Indiana rally last weekend--no Snoozeys there but everyone is VERY interested in seeing one. We bragged up yours big time. Many folks are planning to attend the Rally at Land between the Lakes in the fall and are hoping you are as well so they can get a look-see. Is that one on your calendar?

We are visiting the factory this weekend. If all goes well I'll be ordering one. Then there will be a snoozy in Atlanta for people to check out. We've been looking for an upgraded camper for months and it seems like all of the non-fiberglass campers will fall apart within months.
