McKesh Towing mirror 1Towing mirrors aren’t just a good idea, they’re the law. In fact, if you check the laws in 50 different states, you’ll find that they all have little variations.

Be sure to check your own state laws before buying your trailer or next set of mirrors. There are websites with the regs for all 50 states listed, but it’s best to check directly with your own department of motor vehicles. Often, the “one stop” information on the web is outdated.

A good rule of thumb is: If you can see a car that’s 125′ (about 7 car lengths) directly behind your trailer, you’re in good shape. But also make sure your mirrors are stable, meaning they don’t vibrate at highway speeds.

mckesh towing mirror 4McKesh Portable Towing Mirrors are designed to accommodate all state and Canadian province regulations. Extending out to 20″, with large 6″ x 9″ mirrors, McKesh mirrors offer more visibility than any towing mirror on the market. Add the optional convex mirrors and increase your range of vision even more, especially in those toll booth lines where the guy in the Accord is trying to squeeze by on your passenger side.

McKesh mirrors are made of rugged steel and virtually vibration free. They strap onto your vehicle’s door in just a few seconds. Thick padding prevents marring the vehicle finish. The mirrors are removed with one push of the small catch next to the strap knob. On and off in a few seconds.

McKesh mirrors are available direct from the factory. Call Hensley Mfg. at 1-800-410-6580 to order a set, currently on sale for $125. Convex mirrors are $15.50 each. You can also order them online at

    I have these mirrors. The plastic mirrors cases that came with them are so thin in the mounting area that makes then shake.
    I replaced the mirrors with metal cased ones from AutoZone.
    I do love the mounting hardware.
