Unhappy Tow Mirrors for Painted Stock Ford F150 Lariat Rear View Mirrors

We have a 2016 Ford Lariat F150 with stock mirrors - the kind that have the light bar at the bottom and are painted. We are trying to find the tow mirrors that can slide on and off, but because of the kind of mirrors we have - we are running out of options that we are aware of.

Any ideas out there other than putting on the actual tow mirrors at vast expense? Or are we stuck?

We used a set of these on our 2010 F-150 with the same non-towing mirrors yours has. You can search here in the forums, there are lots of posts about them. I found them very easy to attach and remove when needed and with just a little care nothing was ever scratched on our doors...
I thought they were great!

Aero mirrors is what you want. They come in two styles. In fact there was a pair in the classifieds.

Second recommendation on the Aeros. We use them on our '15 F150 xlt (same shape mirrors as yours I'm guessing) and they are great. Stable at speed, easy on/off, and easy to adjust for a good view. Great product!

Hope this helps.

This is what we have on our F150 - they work great. Found them on etrailer.com

I agree with MaggieMarty. I've used the CIPAs on three different TV and work well with each.

Another vote for the CIPA mirrors. Used on our F-150 for 3 years and 35k of towing and was totally satisfied. Stable and easy on and off.

Yet another vote for the Cipa mirrors. About as wide as are available, and easy on and off. I put some paper masking tape everwhere the Cipa's might touch the painted shell of the OEM mirrors, just to assure no way there would be a scratch. Probably gross overkill, but it made me feel better...

Another suggestion for the entire aftermarket replacement mirrors. Look like factory and much less cost. Easy install too.

Before finding a TV with factory tow mirrors, I checked the F-150 forum. The overwhelming recommendation there was for the CIPA's.
