Marysville, Michigan – A new Telescopic Trailer Tow Mirror that can slide outward for improved rear vision while towing will be displayed at the 2002 SEMA Show at the Las Vegas Convention Centre, Las Vegas, November 5 – 8.

The Telescopic Trailer Tow Mirror is manufactured by Schefenacker Vision Systems Australia Pty Ltd, and fits the most popular Ford, GMC, Chevrolet and Dodge Ram trucks.

The mirrors are designed for a clean, aerodynamic, factory-fitted appearance. They replace a truck’s original exterior mirrors and slide easily with up to 4-1/2 inches of outward adjustment. This allows most drivers to see past loads up to 102 inches wide. Graduation markings on the arm covers help remind the driver how much telescoping is needed to see past the load. Telescopic Trailer Tow Mirrors are built for toughness and tested to the truck maker’s specifications. They can be supplied with custom chrome covers and are supplied with standard black covers that the customer or dealer can paint to match the vehicle. Theme covers also complement the range of interchangeable covers.

The two mirror elements are a large, flat main glass and a separate, wide- view adjustable spotter mirror. The main glass element allows the driver to see past the widest legal loads on lanes 11 feet wide. The spotter mirror covers a 48-degree field of view. The large main glass is electrically adjustable on vehicles originally supplied with electric mirrors. Some mirror models have a heat option. You can also upgrade your vehicle to have the mirror heat option. LED turn signal lights on certain models increase awareness for other vehicles of the driver’s intention to turn or change lanes. LED clearance lights are also available on some models.

Telescopic Trailer Tow Mirrors are available for the 1999 to current Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra; 2000 to current Chevrolet Suburban, Tahoe, and GMC Yukon; 2002 to current Chevrolet Avalanche and Dodge Ram; 1994 to current Ford F150; and 1998 – 2000 Ford F250 Light Duty trucks.

Schefenacker provides a three-year limited warranty and free technical support. Some customers may be able to install the mirrors on certain vehicles, but Schefenacker recommends professional installation. Further product information is available on the Web site:
