Ours fell off too, but that was only when the mirrors needed to be cleaned thoroughly or they were not tightened enough. When compared to the other clip ons which are useless, these have worked very well for us so far.
Good Luck

Tow N See Mirrors

I purchased the Tow N See Mirrors because we have a Toyota Tundra and there do not seem to be any aftermarket mirrors made for our truck. At first my husband didn't want to use them. He was afraid they would mark the truck but we took them anyway to our RV driving lesson last month. Our instructor was recommending those mirrors so we used them and they worked great. You have to adjust the truck mirrors so that the arm clears the mirror frame to get a tight seal. The vacuum is created by turning a knob not your old fashioned suction cup method.......the mirrors work great. The only thing I would do differently is to buy 1 flat and 1 convex (I bought 2 flat). I would then put the convex on the driver's side because it already has a flat mirror and I would put the flat one on the passenger side because it has a convex mirror. Thank you for your recommendation. It has made our towing a lot easier. pj

I need to get a pair of extended mirrors and saw this thread. Looks like it died in Jan 07. Is everybody still happy with the Tow N See? Has anything better come along? Camping World does not have them in their catalog and says on web site no longer sold on line. Have these been discontinued? As always, any input appreciated.
Joe

Greetings from the Florida Panhandle

Yes, I am still using my Tow 'N See mirrors on my '05 Suburban, and like them a lot. I've still haven't seen anything that I like better. Before the Tow 'N See, I had a pair of McKesh mirrors, and I didn't care for them that much. What I like most about the Tow 'N See is that fact that they adjust with the TV's mirror control.

I did notice the Tow 'N See Mirrors on close out at Camping World several months ago. I really don't understand this as all the other mirror that Camping World sells are junk.

If you are still interested in getting these mirrors, there are plenty on Ebay for about $25.

Brian

I have the Tow n See mirrors also & they work great. I have left the mirrors on for a solid week without them loosening up. I also tried the same type of mirror now offered by CIPA. The CIPA mirrors were terrible with vibration. The "flat" Tow n See mirror didn't work for me. Too much vibration but the convex ones work great. I have one for each side.

Still good

We are still using our Tow N See mirrors as well. We upgraded to the McKesh mirrors but my husband likes the Tow N See better....he thought the McKesh were damaging his truck.....so we are back using the Tow N See....sometimes the right one pops off...guess we need to clean the mirror better...paula

I had the McKesh first. They were hard to adjust; they were not quick to put on and take off, and they were scratching my Suburban. I bought a pair of the Tow 'N See Mirrors and tried them. I never used the McKesh again, and sold them on the Forums Classifieds.

No, I didn't because my assessment was strictly my opinion. A lot of folks swear by the McKesh mirrors, and really like them. Anyone looking for McKesh mirrors, knows what they are looking at. Mine were in excellent condition, and I sold them for less than 1/3 of what I paid for them new. I did include in my ad that I was selling them because I had found mirrors that I liked better.

I have the Tow N See mirrors but also tried these. Tried the Convex ones & they vibrated horribly compared to the Tow N See convex mirrors that don't vibrate. The knockoffs have a padded cushion at the end of the arm where it attaches to the mirror. this cushion allows for this terrible vibration. The Tow N See's are more soildly attached to the arm at the point where it attaches to the suction cup which makes much less vibrations.

we purchased these mirrors for our Sprinter van and used them last week traveling throughout upstate NY, VT and MA. They really do stay put and were a great help-for around $50 the pair. We used flat on the drivers side and curved on the passenger side has anyone tried flat on the passenger side?
