I would keep one thing in mind when trying to decide which ones to get, and that is how much driving you do with the mirrors attached and having to get close to a gate opening pad at a park or parking in close quarters. I have found it very desirable to be able to close my mirrors for parking or getting close to a gate pad. The McKesh ones are good, but do have draw backs.
The Aero's look like a good product. I have been using the K Source 3891 ones for the past 4 yrs. Have put about 15,000 miles on with them. I did have to improvise the straps as they kept breaking within a yr. I made aluminum straps with the rubber straps used under for protection. The next problem I had, and this could be only to my vehicle, was the mirrors would close in once in awhile when traveling at 70 - 75 mph and I would be passing or get passed by a semi. The electric mirrors would not put them back with such a load on them at that speed. So, I then made up some straps that attach under the hood and clip to the mirrors to keep them out. These can to released at the mirror so normal closing can still be used when needed. Just something to think about

I like my aero mirrors. They are a nice compliment to the factory ones. I check both before changing lanes. They are easy to install and remove. I turned mine vertically to see farther back. I have only a couple of hundred miles on them.

Again thanks all for your responses it's somewhat overwhelming that so many of you would take the time to respond and help. I'm new to the airstream world but, I couldn't be happier to be part of a community so unique and wonderful in it's approach to helping others. I hope I'll be able to do the same in the future! That said, I'm somewhat torn between the simplicity of the Aeros and the larger Mckesh that seem like they'd have the
ability to do damage to the truck the way they attach while the Aeros seem almost too simple to be good? It's decision time. I'm still listening..... Has anyone used the Aeros on a Tundra like mine (2005)?
Thanks again and Happy Camping!

Mark,
The clamps on the aeros seem to be very sturdy in how they hold. Mine have not slipped at all. If it would help. I could snap a close up photo of how they clamp on.

I just ordered a pair of the Aero2's on Amazon, they have very detailed photos for a better look.

Hi from AZ... I had my 'Fix Or Repair Daily' dealer put a set of factory expanding mirrors on to replace the ones on my F-150. They manually pull out 3 1/4 " and do help when pulling the AS. BUT, they're big, black, expensive, and ugly, fold manually,not by the button, and have quite a bit of wind noise. I'm going to put the old ones back on and get a set of McKesh mirrors. Any body near PHX want these big guys ?? cheap ?? regards, Craig
