    I don't know which is sillier, those mirrors or putting a spoiler on a Honda.

    I'm sliding that picture over to the truck forum. We always get a chuckle when we see someone with their mirrors flipped out, but nothing in tow, a.k.a. "ghost trailer". They're known as "Moose Antlers" in honor of Bullwinkle the Moose.

    Putting the (Ridiculous) spoiler on probably ruined their line of sight from inside rear-view mirror. So….. then you gotta….. Pretty dumb looking, IMHO.

    Hitch is on the front for towing behind a motor home.

    Can’t even make a female driver joke, since I don’t think I’ve ever seen a woman drive use the mirrors!!:D

    The front hitch is an advertisement that the driver needs to be led (maybe forcefully,lol) somewhere …..desperately!

    While I understand the sentiment, you obviously haven't met my wife. She not only hitches, tows, and fills the 30-foot fifth-wheel with gear while I'm at work, she did most of the driving while pulling the 300DA back up north over 400 miles of mountain road. I can always tell when she really wants to get out of the valley, because the trailer will be out front, loaded, and ready to leave on a Friday afternoon when I get home from work. Yep, she's a rare catch.

    Unfortunately no, just two brothers who have no interest in life’s best investment, boating. Her Dad, gone now, was a Navy man and always had a boat, literally.
