slide on mirrors

Wondering if anyone has experience using the CIPA and/or Longview slide on mirrors. I definitely need more than the stock 2010 F150 mirrors, but don't want to pay $175 EACH plus installation for the OEM telescoping mirrors.

Thanks,

B

We have used McKesh mirrors from Hensley Mfg. for the past four years with excellent results. They are a bit pricey but they go on and off easily which we like when using the tow vehicle for sightseeing and day trips after unhitching our trailer.

I had them on my 1998 Ford F150 and they worked very well. They did add extra viewing distance. They did not shake very much.
They are easy to put on and take off. My 1998 Ford had chrome on the back side of the mirrors, so I can not tell you if they scratched or damaged the mirrors. They did not scratch the chrome however.
I have a post on here for the old ones. They will not fit my 2006 or your 2010 mirrors.
I am going to order the telescopic mirrors for 2006 F150 though. I think would prefer the larger mirrors and be able to pull them out as needed. I found them online for $130.00 each. I will install them myself.

I had the slide on mirrors from Ford and hated them. They had too much vibration and did not help vision as much as I wanted.
I also have the McKesh mirrors and am much happier. I did get the optional convex mirrors and do recommend those.

Yup ... I also bought the McKesh. Found them more expensive than I originally wanted to spend, but now feel they were worth the money. I got a 'regular' mirror for the drivers side and a 'convex' for the passenger side.

I really like the easy clip-on/clip-off method & the fact that I'm not adjusting the mirrors every time I put them on. Just have to remember to check them occasionally, as the straps stretch when they get wet (ie. in the rain). I think I paid $150.00cdn for each at the dealer.

I also had the CIPA mirrors , the right side was hard to adjust , both sides had a vibration .I broke down and bought a set of factory look alikes for my Silverado . They are powered and heated , for 135.00 on ebay and put them on myself .

When we bought our new F-150 last Summer, we both knew it had to have the telescoping mirrors. We are happy to have them; they work well. We did have the slide-on mirrors (don't remember the brand) with previous trailers, but hated having to hook them up. That's neat to hear you can get the telescoping after-market.

We have some slide on's for our F150. Got em at Camping World, can't remember the brand but they work really well... no vibration, but they are difficult to get adjusted.

Slide on Mirrors

I have been using the CIPA slide on mirrors for the last year and a half and have been perfectly satisfied. I cannot say that I have experienced any vibration. Visibility is just fine.

I ended up getting the CIPA ones at Camping World. They fit fine with no buzz. They do seem to shift adjustment a bit though.

Thanks for the input, everybody.
