Rear view mirror position

On our new to use 07 Monaco Diplomat, the rear view mirrors are positioned “forward” compared to our previous Fleetwood MH. I look throw the very left and right edge of the windshield rather than the side windows. Seems it would be easier to look through the side. I realize the mirrors are in farther, less likely to be hit. Is there another reason? Do I just need to get used to the different position?

GDGorsuch-

I left the passenger-side forward and moved the driver-side back, so I could look at it out the side window.

If you do the same, you will want to make a reflection/glare shield. mounts to the driver-side a-pillar, and prevents the reflection from the passenger-side front window. You'll see why it's needed 30 seconds after you swing the driver-side mirror back.

I prefer them forward less time with the eyes off the road and usually I can see the road and the mirror at the same time.

I find with them back I have to move my head not just my eyes to see in them.
