Attachable towing mirrors

I tow a 2016 passport with a 2010 F150. I don't want to spend a lot on replacing the mirrors. What are some good attachable towing mirrors, I like the Milenco aero 3 mirrors. Any thoughts. Thanks

I have a set of the Milenco Grand Aero mirrors and they're awesome.

I used a brand called Fit System. From Amazon, it fit great and there isn't any vibration or looseness. And the pair was 40 dollars. So that is what I use.

The F150 mirrors are the same from 2004 through 2011 (possibly even later). CIPA makes a black "slip on shell mirror" that extends beyond the OEM. It doesn't vibrate and gives quite a bit of extra width to the mirrors. Cost for the pair is $43 on Amazon. https://www.amazon.com/CIPA-11800-Cu...ype=automotive

If you were here, I've got a pair sitting on the shelf in my garage.

x2 for CIPA. I don't even take them off when not towing. Just forget they are there. No vibration but simple as can be if you do want to take them off and on.

We purchased these mirrors. They were sort of on the cheap side, so I wasn't too sure when I ordered them, but they have held up really well and have no vibration. I like that they are removable for when not towing.

I bought the Fit System 81810 Ford F-150 Towing Mirror - Pair and have no complaints. They are easy to install/remove, do not vibrate and have not marred the stock mirrors.

I bought the trailer from a dealer about 5 hours away and did not even think about tow mirrors, until I got it on the road to take it home ... that was fun.

I have searched for replacement tow mirrors, but have not found any that have all the features of the factory units (power fold, heated, memory, etc), so I will continue on with the Fit units.

Just bought at 2017 Keystone 19FB Premier and use the Tow-N-See attachable mirrors. Once attached you use your regular mirror adjustment to adjust the towing mirrors. Got them at Walmart, https://www.walmart.com/search/?quer...ahead=tow-n-se

I just replaced the stock mirrors on my F150 with aftermarket tow mirrors from EBay for $130. Took 40 minutes to replace both and I love them. LED turn signals, power and heated mirrors and puddle lights.

I second the eBay factory replicas. I have a GMC 06 and love that version. Put a pair Ford replicas in a super duty and a Dodge, plug and play. They make some pretty good factory replicas.

Along the same lines, I would recommend this site. Simply plug in your truck, but look at the towing mirrors. Works like a charm.
