    Our MH has a rear bed over garage and has a rear window which obviously is too high to see through with the rear view mirror.

    I was in Halfords the other day and saw one of these lens and thought for £13 worth a try.

    well I have to say short of having a rear view camera it is brilliant. Can use the rear view mirror, can now see those that tuck themsleves in behind that you can only see occasionally and on the motorway have a good view down the road behind. Also when overtaking can now get a good perspective for moving back across to the inside lane. When cars pull up close behind I can see them from about halfway up there bonnet onwards and today a youngster about 8years old ran behind the MH and I could see his head.

    Obviously not as good as a camera but considerably cheaper and now i can move other things ahead of the rear camera on my accessory budget like cruise control, fitted water filter, air suspension etc

    Well worth it in my opinion if you have a rear window.:thumb:

    I agree Gary. We have a Fresnel lens in the rear window of our van. Anything which assists visibility is good.

    Absolutely

    I had seen them on the back of minibuses and the like but didn't realise just how good they are (maybe I am just a bit behind the times:Doh:).
    With the little boy running behind the MH at the lights mad me realise how blind I was without the lens

    We have one on our van. It gives a great view through the rear window, works a treat as you say.
