Ditto. I think the only solution would be a camera or convex school bus mirrors.

Dual windowed sliders helps immensely. My first accident in my first car at 17 taught me to always look over my shoulder before changing lanes. Not having 2nd row windows would drive me nuts. The mirrors on the transit are good, but not as good as line of sight plus the mirrors.

I miss being able to see out the rear doors now that my lofted bed is in. I'm going to tackle rewiring the rearview camera into my head unit to alleviate that.
