I hope I am in the right section, If not would someone put this in the correct forum? We just picked up our new to us 2005 Sun Voyager. The side view mirrors are just about useless to me. I can see down the road to the rear or I can watch for vehicles beside me but not both. I have tried 9 ways to Sunday and can't get a clear view of either side. I am looking for advice of add ons or anything that will help.

I'm not familiar with the Sun Voyager, but most RV mirrors have at least 2 sections - one flat and a second convex section. The convex section can be adjusted independently to give a wide angle view to the rear and also a downward view to help see if anyone is beside you.

If you don't have a separate convex section, you can get either a stick-on convex mirror or a convex mirror that you can add on below your regular mirror. For the best view, a larger convex mirror is better. Be aware that a stick-on mirror will take viewing area away from your regular mirror, so adding a convex mirror below your regular mirror may be better. You may need to look around for or make a bracket and/or clamp to mount the convex mirror. You see truckers with multiple mirrors all the time.

Lee, Are you referring to the top mounted ones? If so do as I did remove them and install the ones that mount like every other MH (below the window's) I think 05 was the only year they used them, Many people changed them because they had major blind spots.

Yes Sir, That's the ones I am refering to. Did you buy new or used? What brand-year did you use? I guess I could find a RV junk yard and get all the parts that I would need.

Lee, If I remember correctly we used the ones they had on the 04 Sun Voyager they are heated and electric adjust. They were bought new.

I had the holes filed and painted looks like they were never there!
They are so much better than the overhead ones, I had the same problem as you too many blind spots. I can't figure why they ever put them things on their coaches they only did it for one year I think but like you I got one.

Also check out the GS owners forum that's in my signature it has no ties to GS just a bunch of owners getting together to solve problems and swap ideas.

I believe that most are Velvac.

You can sometimes find deals at used MH parts stores/salvage yards like Walt's RV.

I want to thank the folks that answered my request for info. Normal placement mirrors are on order and should be installed by the end of the month. Again thanks to all that helped on this.
