Peter, I think that,in my eyes anyway, I'll be able to "adjust" my way out of the issue.....Time will tell,as I'll be back on the road this weekend on the way to the National Rally. I AM going to move the passenger side arm a little forward and swing the mirror face a bit, in order to get the side post out of the corner of the mirror.

We'll see what transpires with the driver's side....

Just found this topic again....glare is definitely an issue with the driver's mirror...

The passenger side mirror simply needed some adjusting and it's ok now, but the driver's mirror
will need something done to it, as in what Lug Nut is planning to do with the mirror arm lengthening...

Keep us informed as to how that mod comes along Peter, when you can get your paws on your coach!!

Anyone else that has experienced the driver's side mirror please feel free to jump in as well!!

I think if you make the arm longer to see the mirror out of the front of the windshield, you will not be able to see down the side of the coach from the drivers side. It will be a great view for the passenger. We solved a large part of the glare on our 2006 DSDP by tinting the drivers,passenger, and entrance door windows. We then reduced the glare further by loosening the nut on the arm and swinging the mirror as far front as possible, and still being able to see down the side of the coach. Paul

Paul, that sounds like a very do-able solution and I'll get right on that one....THANKS!!!

The other thing I have noticed is how hot the driver's side window gets and since the shade comes from the top it can feasibly only be used to the top of the mirror, but YOUR solution solves that too!!

I believe with the longer support arm (same as the passenger side) it will work similar to the former lower mounted units. With the arm swung forward so that the inside edge of the mirror is near parrel to the coach body, it should be usable through the windshield. It will be the same as the earlier design except you will look up slightly instead of down slightly.
Least that's the way I see it, and I will let you know how it works out.
