Tow Mirror Recommendations

What do you recommend for extended tow mirrors for a 2013 F-150?

I would look for a low price source for Ford OEM tow mirrors. I own a Chevy and found an online parts seller called GM Parts Direct that offers OEM parts very close to the price of third party after market parts. No doubt there is a similar online dealer of OEM Ford parts. With GM I found the OEM tow mirrors to be better quality (less mirror shake) than the after market mirrors I tried.

Here is an example of an online Ford OEM parts dealer. A search for "tow mirrors" on the attached website will give many OEM tow mirrors to look over.

I use the Cipa mirrors that slip over the original F-150 mirrors. Very stable with excellent visibility.

Any discussion of towing mirrors should not go without a plug for McKesh. We really like ours.

I use and like Aero2 mirrors. They have knobs and rubber clamping things that attach to the stock truck mirror.

I recently purchased the Arrow2 also. Best mirrors so far for my 2005 Toyota. Very stable even at 70 miles an hour.

Hi, the only choice that I would have for a new F-150 would be the factory tow mirrors. I have the CIPA on my Lincoln because I didn't have that choice.

Milenco's for us. About $100, work as advertised on the F150 or F250.

AERO 2 Towing Mirrors : Amazon.com : Automotive

I vote for the Aero2 mirrors. The Cipa's look better but they blew off. I have had no problem with the Aero2's. I also have an F150.

Add another happy camper to the Aero2 mirror list. We really like ours. Easy to put on and remove, plus they seem very stable without a lot of the vibration other brands seem to have, nor I have I heard of any Aero2 mirrors blowing off any trucks. If I had the need, I would buy these again, they are a good product.
