About Us

Australia’s Favourite Towing Mirrors are just the beginning

A Family Legacy

Behind every Clearview product is not just technological expertise but also a story of family and passion. The father and son-in-law duo, Mike Cowan and Jay Praag, have transformed their family business into a pillar of the Australian 4WD and Touring Industry. Their continued engagement with the touring community underscores the commitment and personal touch that Clearview Accessories embodies.

We’ve all been in contact with a set of Clearviews at some point in our lives, and many of us have met Uncle Mike on our travels. Being an active part of the touring community means that Mike is always available for a chat with fellow tourers! 

Australia’s Favourite Towing Mirrors are just the beginning

Since our inception, our unrelenting commitment to creating solutions found nowhere else, has helped us establish our position as a leader in manufacturing unique 4wd and touring accessories. With an entrenched enterprising spirit, we are dedicated to creating value for, and delighting our customers.

We Were Tired of Being Unable to Find Good Quality Towing Mirrors

Clearview Accessories® began in 2006, as a family run business owned by entrepreneur Mike Cowan and his son-in-law Jay Praag. 

In the years that followed, Mike and Jay turned their small family business with three full-time employees, into one of Australia’s most respected 4WD and Touring Brands. 

With a strong passion for the automotive industry, quality design and discipline in professional workmanship, our trust is built within our values of creating high quality ADR compliant designs. 

From humble beginnings, Clearview Accessories® has grown and today manufactures a range of unique, quality products for your next off-road adventure! 

 

We're Proudly Australian

Clearview Towing Mirrors® are proudly Australian Owned and Built. 

We build our mirrors tough. We make them in Australia. We test them in Australia. And we build them to withstand the rigors of the Australian outback. If they withstand the Australian outback, they’re tough enough for any country!

Launched in 2006, the first generation of Clearview’s Towing Mirrors, aptly named “Original Towing Mirrors” are still available today, albeit in an updated format. They say that imitation is the best form of flattery, and many cheap copies of Clearview’s Original Towing Mirrors have since entered the market.

Today, Clearview Accessories offers three different Extendable Towing Mirror designs. The new Clearview Next Gen & Compact Towing Mirrors extend out a full 180mm for towing but retract to close to the factory profile of the standard mirrors they replace! When set to their normal driving position, the mirrors remain unobtrusive during your daily commute when you don’t need extended mirrors, or when you need to fit into tight spaces.
