sideview mirror

I recently damaged my passenger side sideview mirror and need a replacement. I have an '06 National Surfside and can't find the part anywhere. I've been to several websites and the best I can find is an '07 model.

Will the '07 mirror fit my '06 rig? If not, where can I find the exact model year part?

Thanks.

Was " Ramco Engineering " one of the sites you visited, still in business and supplied a lot of makers over the years.

All the Ramco mirrors appear to be arm below mirror configurations. I need an arm above mirror config. like this:

The problem with that is that are specifically designed to install a certain way. You want the convex blindspot mirror to be on bottom.

I have mirrors similar to the pic. Mine are also hung with the arm on top, but have three mirror sections not two.

They are Velac, Velvac Recreational Vehicle Mirrors

The mirror in the pic is almost exactly what I need. The add specifies the same make and model of my RV, the only difference is the model year and that is only off by one.

Can I still use it?

Does the ad give a brand name for the mirror manufacturer ?
Manufacturer's part number ?
Do you have any idea if National used the same front cone in both years of MHs?

Thanks for all the advice guys. I called Velvac and the tech guy was very helpful. He talked me through which parts were damaged and which parts were intact so I only had to order the two specific parts that were damaged (the glass and the upper housing). It's a whole lot less than I thought it would be.

Just hoping it all fits and matches and I can do the repair successfully.
