Towing Mirrors

So I searched on "Mirror" and didn't find anything around suggestions for a good towing mirror. I am hoping I don't have to physically change mine out but maybe just use extensions?

Also do you even bother with different mirrors for towing? I can't see behind me but I can see along each side. What do you do?

Thanks for the help and as always, this group rocks!

I bought some CIPA mirrors for the F-150. Work well and easy to attach/remove.

I bought replacement fit mirror system mirrors for my tv. I have a couple of issues with them, they shake, and at night you can get blinded by them from vehicles behind you. I can see behind the TT with them. They do come off so I can fit in the garage without folding my mirrors in, if I had the factory F150 tow mirrors I would be folding them in ever time I would park in the garage.

I have Grand Aero Mirrors. They work OK. better than the ones with the rubber strap. (I had those break off and lost the mirror) They don't make CIPA mirrors for the Expedition.


Here is a link to what is very similar to what I have. easily removable too.

Initially I used some mirror extensions very similar to the above listed grand aeros ($110) and while OK I eventually replaced them with these: 2002 Ford F250 Super Duty Truck Manual Telescoping Towing Upgrade Mirror Pair at 1A Auto.com. Resold these removable troublesome mirrors for $60.

These second ones were significantly better (larger, clearer, no vibrations and no on/off as needed) and eventually at vehicle resale I swapped them out again - sold them on craigslist for $175.

Ensured my newest TV came with appropriate mirrors.
