Went with this for now. They were cheap (abot 20 bucks each) and are so easy to install/de-install. Put them on the truck and went for a ride with no camper and the vibration was bearable. I am going to devise a brace made from plastic with an additional suction cup should quell that problem. Will keep y'all posted.

Decided to go with these. They were cheap enough and my salesman at the rv store told me I could return them if they were horrible. I tried them on my truck and they stuck like glue. Important thing is to use a good glass cleaner and get the truck mirror surface as clean as possible. I havent picked up my new trailer yet, but went for a ride with the mirrors installed. They worked pretty well. Some vibration, but its not so bad that they arent usable. I am working on an add-on bracket that will suction cup to my door that should help to quell the shaking. Will keep y'all posted.

Did you read the customer reviews? It doesn't look like they are very promising.

Have you thought about going to a auto wrecker and buying some adjustable mirrors that you could retrofit to replace your existing mirrors?

I bought a Reese "Tow Power" Universal strap on mirror for $25... it works, but not great. The clips that go over the edge of my existing mirrors, don't allow me to power adjust the existing mirrors, and the add-on bounces around a little more that I would like... but what should I expect for $25?

I plan on getting a set of heated, powered extendable mirrors (OEM) for my Chevy... they are just a little pricey at this point in the game, maybe next year...

steppenwolf, check out ttt-mirror.com before you buy the OEM mirrors. I have these on my 2006 GMC Sierra and I absolutely love them.

How are the mirrors working for you? I am very interested in these same mirrors. One thing that attracts me to them is the ability to adjust those mirrors by simply adjusting the truck's existing power mirrors. Have you tried that? Does it work?
