Side view mirror replacement

My side view mirrors are becoming less tightly attached (yes, the base mounting screws have been tightened as much as possible), causing them to be unusable when driving due to the image oscillation. Anyone have suggestions as to remounting them onto a sturdier surface, such as the curve where the front cap section joins the side wall and what brand mirror would be a good replacement?
Thanks!

Try putting down a good base of silicone or RTV and then put the screws back in. Don't move the coach for twenty four hours.

Ok you are saying that the base screws are all tight and the base does not move right but when you drive the image is blurred right.
What I am guessing what you are saying is the mirrors glass them selfs is shaking do to wear of the internal works. There is a couple of ways to fix this and the easiest is get some self stick rubber weather stripping and put it on the housing of the mirror after you have adjusted it in place. Make sure it is thick enough to touch the mirror but will let you be able to fine tune it with the switch. But you get the idea.

Good idea I never thought about the glass being loose.
