Side mirrors veiwing problems

Will be a first time FW hauler, will pick up my 2016 36FBTS in a couple of weeks. Has anyone had problems viewing traffic lanes when hauling. I've talked to one guy and he installed two side cameras and a backup camera to his Pinnacle. As you know 102" width may be a problem with viewing. I have 2016 Chev. 3500HD.

The factory mirrors on the Chevy ought to be fine. I have a 14 2500hd. The 102" is a bit wide but shouldn't be that big of a deal. I usually check both the regular and wide angle mirror when changing lanes. Can't imagine messing with all the cameras. Just my two cents worth.

We have a 2015 GMC 3500 and a 102' Jayco Octane. With the factory mirrors extended, I have a OK view down the drivers side. On the Passenger side, the awning arms cut off the view. I added a another blind side mirror on both sides and it makes it workable. Another 2 or 3 inches of mirrors would be about right for me.
