Retrofit towing mirrors

I have been looking for a GOOD replacement towing mirrors for my 96 Suburban. I have the screw on mirrors which worked but not very well and were a pain to put on and take off. I hated to buy a new TV just to get some decent mirrors. I also didn't want to use the fender mounted units.

I found the CIPA Extendable Towing Mirrors at Camping World and found them online for $328 delivered. They are 10 X 10, electric and just pull out when you want to tow, push back when you are finished. Glorious in the simplicity. They do look large but not objectionable. I did put them on myself and aside from one difficult bolt, easy to do in about 90 minutes for both. Saved about $240 that way. They also came with smaller stick on mirrors to broaden the view.

Attach Pictures if Possible

We have considered the same upgrade. A few years ago CIPA was experiencing quality problems so we did not purchase the units. I was told by a supplier that the problems have been remedied. Please post pictures when available. I'd also like to hear your comments after a few weeks/months.
