You should be able to see down the side of the 5er on both sides when the unit is straight. Some trucks have extending mirrors that are wide enough, others require extentions.
I like to see the ground beside the wheels of the trailer when the mirror is in the normal position.
The farther out the mirrors are the smaller the blind spot behind the trailer will be. There is a practical limit to how far the mirrors can be "out" as they may have too much vibration to be of any rear viewing use.
