The CIPA mirrors are better than nothing. I really prefer the pull out or flip out mirrors that are available for most trucks.

I picked up the K-Source custom clip-ons from e-trailer.com on sale for an excellent price. They're kind of like the CIPAs, they look great, but they rattle just a bit, and the passenger side is not very helpful, I kind of wish they were a bit bigger vertically.

I think I would prefer something mounted, but for the money, these work for me for now.

The CIPAs work great and are very easy to install and remove. If I was full timing and moving around a lot I might consider the OEM tow mirrors.

Buy the OEM tow mirrors and never think about it again! I will never be without them. I have a set of CIPA's that will never be used by me again! My Tundra and my 2003 Ram both have had the tow mirrors installed. Absolutely NO vibration and there is a much better view of the camper sides and much better for backing up.

I have the CIPA's for my GMC Denali. They were OK when I was towing a 96" wide TT, but they are about useless with our Octane Toy Hauler wide body (102" wide). Since we are looking at a new TV next spring, I'd like to hear from anybody towing a 102" wide with OEM mirrors. I do agree, given a choice, I would definitely go with the factory tow mirrors. Our son's F350 has them, and they are 100% better than the CIPA's IMO, but that was pulling his 33' gooseneck horse trailer, 96" wide. Haven't use it to pull the Octane yet, don't want to hear again how much better his F350 is than my Denali!

I just installed the upgraded tow mirrors on our F-150 and they were well worth the purchase. Thank you to everyone for your feedback!

You will not regret this mirror option.

You know, if you spend just a little more money, about $55,000 not including trade, you can upgrade to an F-250. Your towing mirrors will fold and extend with the touch of a button. He-he

I have the McKesh mirrors and they are great. Can be moved easily to any vehicle and are easy to adjust. On and off in just a matter of minutes.

When I had the F150 I used one of the clip on mirros with the rubber straps and rachets. There are two types and the one without the magnified section is best. Never had a single issue with them, quick to put on and they worked just as good as my towing mirrors on my F250.
