    In search of larger side mirrors for my 69 sv 108 Camper (Iowa)

    Looking to replace my tiny stock round mirrors for my 69 SV Camper. I can't see anything, but at least they look sleek...
    Would like to use same bolt locations if possible?
    Any ideas would be appreciated. Do's and Dont's are welcome!
    Thanks guys!

    My 108 had the same brackets and goose neck but the mirrors were larger and rectangular. I think you can bolt in many other larger mirrors, just Google truck mirrors or on the eBay for ideas.

    These are 5x7:

    I really want to rig up a back up camera on my van one of these days.

    :(

    I've seen those, but is there a "camper style" that fits a late 60' second gen style chassis?
