Milenco Aero and Grand Aero are good. No problems with shaking here.

Milenco Grand Aero for us. We put an extra strap that goes round the mirror for added support.

Sometimes a little rain must fall before you reach a rainbow.

The work will wait while you show the child the rainbow, but the rainbow won't wait while you finish the work.

I have used three different types of towing mirrors in the past and also found that the 'Milenco Grand Aero' ones are the best which are the most sturdy. However, to eliminate any vibration, the two mirror housing clamps need to be as far apart as possible.
