    I just bought this e350 extended body van.I wanna install a safety mirror to see the rear bumper.I don`t wanna use that ugly looking mirror that is mounted on the top rear corner of the truck body.I don`t wanna make holes on the body of the brand new truck.I am trying to use a ladder rack bracket
    and possibly a bar clamped to it and the mirror clamped on the other end of the bar.Anybody came accross something like that.Any idea for using the gutter of the truck for mounting a safety mirror?Thank you.

    Greetings,
    Here are a few suggestions. The first two magnetic CB mounts might be long shots. (One's really long, in England...maybe there's a U.S. branch.) Perhaps you could adapt one to attach a mirror.

    The last one mounts to the existing side view mirror, and might be the most practical.

    Hope these provide some help!

    Ah, you've gone this far, just install a camera back there!
