Thread: Newbie hwe with a question

    Newbie hwe with a question

    Hello, Wayne here from Western NY, the Fingerlakes region. My wife and I just purchased a Kwik Kamp II camper from the USA Trailer Store. Identical to a Bunkhouse as far as I can tell. We did our first night this past weekend at Sampson State Park and have several more planned. Haven't camped in nearly 25 years and have never camped on a motorcycle. I ride and pull the trailer with a Can-Am Spyder and my wife rides an Indian Scout. Our first night was great and can't wait for our next outing.

    Question I have is what do others do for mirrors? The trailer is wide and tall so I cannot see around or over it. I would like to come up with something before our next trip. Thanks

    Welcome to the site! Would mirror extenders work for you? I found these. There are probably less costly options out there somewhere!

    Welcome to the forum.

    I have also added extenders to push the mirrors further out. I have ones that look like this:

    But a cheaper version. Can't remember where I bought them. They work well.

    Welcome. Have you tried spot mirrors?

    Would help if we knew the model of your ride. Also please fill out a profile.

    Maybe some higher handle bars with mirrors. I pull a Leesure Lite with my motorcycle with no problems. (but nothing on top)

    Wayne ....Welcome to the forum. Check out Amazon for mirror extenders. There are all types on their website.

    BTW, I live in Rochester and have camped with a few members and always have a great time. Great bunch of people here. PM me if you want to meet for lunch sometime. Also, there is a campout scheduled for early September in Allegheny State Park at the Loleta Campground. Always a great time there.
