Checking the specs on our old hybrid compared to our new 24FBS, the new one is 5" wider. We used towing mirrors whenever possible when towing the hybrid, but one of our favorite campgrounds is literally half an hour from our front door to the campsite. When we go there, I usually never put the towing mirrors on. But anything further away, the mirrors are used.
The strap-on ones vibrate quite a bit and a lot of people don't like them for that reason. For me, they work adequately well; I'm not interested in being able to read the license plate of the car in my blind spot. I'm more interested in knowing that there is a car in my blind spot.
