Pulled 8000miles with my Mckesh mirrors last year on our Denali and love them.

McKesh all the way...and don't forget the convex add-ons too.

I fully understand safety first...and that we're not in a fashion show...yada...yada...yada...but those McKesh mirrors are so darn ugly that I don't think I can bring myself to buy them. The CIPA are affordable and look decent enough, the Schefenecker are really nice but will break the bank, and Camping World has a few different options to ponder.

The way my Argosy is shaping up I've got plenty of time to think about it (i.e. somebody call a plumber!). Thanks for all the opinions.

I don't usually respond when so many have already stated what I would say BUT I need to make an additional comment about the McKesh Mirrors. I got them with my AS in February of this year - the dealer ordered them for me. I didn't think about it and neither did the dealer but you should think about the color of the straps that hold them on your doors. I've seen them in black and in white. Mine came with white straps and with my black TV I would much rather have had the black straps. The white really stand out on my black vehicle.

Otherwise, the McKesh are great! Easy on and easy off. Great visibility and, best of all, NO vibration. I would get nothing else. Enjoy whatever you decide upon.

Going with McKesh

Thanks to all for your responses. I'm going with the McKesh because they are affordable (especially as I'm getting a used set from someone who no longer needs them) and they give me the view I need and will satisfy the law virtually everywhere - Did you know that many states are specific about the range your towing mirrors must enable you to see? Also I can take them off when the trailer is parked for a while and not have to get out of the truck at the ATM. Thanks again - this is a great place to get the benefit of OP's experience and I appreciate it.

I must second those who have suggested the CIPA slide on mirrors.

I use them with small fish eyes added and have good visibility on both sides.

I also notice that they are stronger than one might expect. Recently while 4 Wheeling (Without Airstream attached of course) the mirror met a tree, quite hard. No damage at all.
