OEM Aftermarket. Several different ones on line. I got the original looking with power adjust, heated and manual fold and convex...they also have the led turn and marjer lughts. Less than 200$. Very satisfied. Mine is an 07 Tundra SR5 TRD. Easy install.

mirrors

Buy the OEM mirrors. Have Toyota mount them. Covered by Toyota warranty. Work better than great. Match truck. turn indicator on mirror, heater defroster works, remote adjust works, magnifying bottom mirror incorporated. no vibration. last forever - and I mean forever. Mine were originally purchased and mounted on my 2014 Tundra. They now live on my 2017 Tundra. work just as well! Buy 'em forget 'em.

I tried 3 different styles of "clip on" mirrors on our 2016 Tundra. Each set was under $80 and they worked okay. But, I didn't like the way they looked and I was periodically adjusting them from vibration movement. I know it's vanity, but I bought the Airstream because of the cool look and its sturdy design, so I ordered power towing mirrors thru Toyota and had them installed.

Have never regretted it.

$235 each from Toyota or $175 for the pair from Amazon? Hmm...

I have a 2013 Tundra and bought the OEM slide out mirrors from a Toyota dealer on Ebay for half of what my dealer wanted for them then paid a body shop $60 to install them since I knew I would screw up taking the trim off to get to the bolts.

I have always felt the OEM mirrors don't extend as far as I would like with our 28' trailer so I also use the clamp on ones you show in addition to those. With the OEM's you also have to train yourself to look at the bottom convex mirror as you have huge blind spots on the side of the truck if you only look at the top mirror.

I found the clip on mirrors block my view down side streets when mounted on top of the side mirrors but don't when mounted on the bottom. I also recommend checking the mirror clamps at each stop. I had one mirror dangling from one clamp when it vibrated loose. I use mine in addition to the factory mirrors so I would have preferred that they had flat mirrors not convex. Objects in the mirror get small quickly.

My truck was born in 2007 with towing mirrors.
The original owner did not want them and got regular chrome mirrors.
When I bought the truck used with 8,000 miles on it and then bought a travel trailer, I replaced the small chrome mirrors the first owner put on there with towing mirrors- what it had to start with.
If I ever buy another truck I will know what to get/what to look for.

Definite vote for the OEM Tundra mirrors. I did that on my 2011 after finding the CIPAs very difficult to get to mount securely. Loved the OEMs. Will get some for my replacement 2010 Tundra when we get back to camping.

Are yours aftermarket? My dealer said they didn’t make Toyota brand? She said I’d lose the blind spot monitor.

I bought the CIPA set and don’t like them at all.

In 2007 they didnít have blind spot monitoring anyway as far as I know.

I bought a set of aftermarket mirrors from 1AAuto.com for my 2013 Toyota Tundra Limited (it had heated mirrors, with puddle lights, power folding, all the bells and whistles). Installation was easy!

After I installed them the power folding didn't work--everything else worked, just not the power folding (which I needed to get my truck into and out of my garage). I called 1AAuto.com and was promptly told by the young woman that I shouldn't have plugged them into the factory harness--that could have damaged them, and that because of differences in factory harness pin-outs they couldn't guarantee all the functions would work. I asked to return them and she gave me an RMA, and when I went to FedEX to ship them back (at my cost) the shipping was half the price of the mirrors (they had been shipped free to me by 1AAuto.com).

I've bought other items from them since, but I wouldn't recommend their aftermarket brand of mirrors for your Tundra unless they are pretty much "manual" mirror with no bells or whistles. Better to go with the OEM mirrors.

I bought the CIPA mirrors (from Camping World) and they were difficult to keep attached to the OEM mirrors (because of the slanted design of the mirrors). I had to use sticky-backs and Ty-wraps to keep them on, but they worked great!

(I've since sold the Tundra and now tow with a Ram 3500 that has (manual) fold-out mirrors which are great--NO vibration at all.

None of the Tundra towing mirrors fold electrically, only manually.
I would think it would hurt a thing to plug into the factory harness.
The turn signal and power adjust for the top glass and defrost will still work.
The wire in the plug for the electric folding portion goes nowhere- no wire to connect to in the mirrorís harness.

I've lived with the clip on mirrors for two days and I'll give them a solid 8.5 out of 10. Quality is excellent and I do not see vibration...yet At that price I'll live with them and if they disappoint it is easy to order up OEM.

Not sure. I ordered them from a Toyota dealer and the boxes they came in had Toyota printed on the outside. And they certainly weren't inexpensive either but they make towing so much safer for me. Heated, has turn signals and upper mirror is power.
