Nice mirrors!!!

Looks like they're a perfect fit! What brand are they? Let us know how they work, would love a pair for our tow vehicle. Our mirror attachments vibrate and distort the images.

Thanks for the pics,
Gail

They are "Cipa slip-on mirrors". They got generally good reviews from the folks here on the forum, so I put them on my "wish list". they're made to fit specific makes/models of tow vehicles. I'll post my own review when I get back.

I have these same mirrors and they are a custom fit for your particular vehicle. They are sturdy and have very little vibration. I did lose one in Kansas when we met a big rig on the highway in 40mph cross winds. I can't expect any more than that. They are sold seperately, which is great if you do lose one.

I have the same mirrors....they are wonderful....I leave them on all the time now.
Sure would be nice if you sent some of that rain to the mountains of New Mexico. The Forrest Service has shut down much of NM due to extreme fire hazard. That is the closest place from Lubbock TX to go to the mountains where it is a little cooler....but for now, you can't go to the National Forrests there.

Nice mirrors, which I need a set of myself, but I bought myself the ultimate Father's Day gift. It's not China, but it will be the best seat in my trailer.

Ok, I like 'em!!

used them this past weekend, and they are a BIG improvement over the strap-on one's that I had, made by the same manufacturer. They stick out far enough, for one thing. the strap-ons really don't stick out far enough to make any difference. There was a little bit of vibration, but not nearly as much as the strap-ons. I found those to be pretty much useless while actually moving. They moved around so much, I couldn't focus on them. but these slip-on mirrors only jiggle a little bit...not as steady as the factory mirrors, but still quite useable.

Frank, the wife says she bought them at "The Trailer Shop" in Danvers, MA. didn't have time to mail-order them...they'd have been a little cheaper via CW, but I guess it was a last minute thing. Unfortunately, there isn't much for retail camping stuff around here.

Thanks for the input, think we'll have to purchase a pair.
