Need Some Towing Mirror Recommendations

Have an 06 Moutaineer 4.6 v8 AWD and will be towing our brand new Jayflight 19bh. Can anyone recommend some decent mirrors that are easy to put on/take off that would not vibrate all over the place?

McKesh mirrors made by the same company that make the Hensley Arrow hitch. These are better than anything else I have seen

Hi villain2000 and Welcome to the Jayco Owners Forum! We haven't had aftermarket mirrors in a few years and now have extending mirrors on our current tv so can't help ya. But let us know how your new Jayco does and post some pics of your first adventure with it. Travel safe and have fun!

I agree with Sailor--the McKesh mirrors work very well and are easy to put on and take off.

I'm about to pull the trigger on some Ford extending mirrors- -I hear they are easy to install and run about $300 bucks. We've tried about 3 different kinds of mirrors and non of them are worth the price of scrap metal.

I installed Ford Super Duty Extending Tow mirrors on my Excursion. For the most part they are easy to install. Since I installed newer model year ones I needed to run a power line to the parking lights on the mirrors.

We have a ford f150 and we use the Cipa custom add on tow mirrors, we've been very pleased with them very little vibration. you can pick the right model for you vehicle.
check out web page but shop around lots of places sell them
