big rear view bus mirror

do you guys keep or remove the big skoolie mirror? it only seems necessary to watch the kids, and as a rear view mirror it seems to be of little use in an rv

Re: big rear view bus mirror

I moved mine and use it as a "dressing" mirror in bedroom, it's not like I can see out the back anymore

Re: big rear view bus mirror

I like having the big rear-view mirror since it allows me to feel more connected to my passengers when driving down the road. I have mine fairly loose so I can easily adjust it down or up while driving depending on whether I want to interact or perhaps would rather not be distracted by lights and such at night.

Re: big rear view bus mirror

I like mine as well, use it to see what i forgot to tiedown as it goes flying around the bus, also it does make interacting with people better. I also use it to help hold the front curtain up when we stop for the night. I think if I did take it off, I would maybe put a smaller one up just to keep an eye on things. I have a rearview cam, and I when I get som extra$$ Ill put side cams aswell

Re: big rear view bus mirror

At this time I plan on keeping mine, however I also thought about switching it out with an automotive type also to just keep an eye on things inside the bus... Like people flying around if i take a corner to fast...to keep myself admused. Kidding

Same here! And I like to see what my dogs and cats are into as I motor down the highway.
