Extra Passenger Side View Mirror for Blind Spot

Does anyone have any solutions for adding an additional mirror to the passenger side of your coach?

Here is my dilemma. My passenger side view mirrors (convex and regular) along with my side view camera give me a great view of the passenger side of my coach.

However, sometimes when I am making a left turn at an intersection that is not perpendicular, there is a big blind spot where I can’t see oncoming traffic. See the map below of my route from home to I-78 West:

I am going in the direction of the arrow and can’t see what traffic is coming from my left on the road labeled ‘State Route 173’. When I have a copilot, there is no problem as then can look out from the passenger seat, but when driving alone I have to drive miles out of my way to avoid this turn.
Any ideas?

I have somewhat of the same problem ,so what i have done is make sure
the shade behind the pass seat is up before i start out from home and then i try to square as best as i can when i get to the Y intersection this helps me a lot but ! if we had a mirror on the front that we could swing out and see to our right it would make it better .I saw a school bus with a arm in front that swung out to make the kids get farther out in front of the bus so the driver could see them and that would work with a mirror on it BUT!guess what that cost?all intersections should be T not y.

A good solution would be a camera that you could set up when traveling alone.Possibly temporarily mounted with suction cups to the side window.
