Part of the problem with cab mirrors is that on standard cabs they are at or near the same height as on other MH cabs and 4X4s.
are you thinking of just replacing the arms or will they have to be complete arm and mirror assemblies?
Either way would it be an idea to reposition the arms higher up, if possible, to avoid potential clashes?
Another solution is to fit the 'hang-down' coach type, but that may be difficult on a cab bodywork, and of course more expensive.
I have been lucky and had only one mirror contact in 12 years, but it could have been a disaster as we had just set off for 20 min. drive to the ferry to France. Luckily I just collected a smear of paint from his mirror but his was smashed - definitely his fault as I think he was on the phone and I was in the hedge.
