Stock side-view mirrors alone can't keep enough of a watchful eye on that expensive toy you've got hooked-up to your hitch. That's why you need CIPA's Universal Towing Mirror to lend a hand. It extends your field of vision, helping you maneuver with greater confidence.
The great feature of CIPA Universal Towing Mirrors: no tools, no hassles, no problems mounting it to your hauler. It installs on your stock side-view mirror with adjustable feet, secure clamps and a tightening knob that helps muffle annoying vibration. And, the CIPA Universal Towing Mirror comes off as easily as it goes on, for all those times you're not towing.
CIPA designed the Universal Towing Mirror to look like a sleek addition to your factory side-view. It's crafted from durable auto-grade ABS plastic that lasts-just like your stock mirror. And, CIPA even backs your Universal Towing Mirror with a 1-year warranty.

Attaches super easy. Very solid. Probably the best towing mirror I have used. However the mirror is too small. If the same exact system had a bigger mirror it would be 5 stars all day long.

We purchased this for our Grand Cherokee and need to see how it holds up on a long trip, it was easy to install and very nice design but not sure of the twist knob that locks it in place after putting it on and driving a couple of miles and shutting the door the mirror almost fell off became very lose and had to re-tighten the clips, maybe because of the bouncing around caused it to become lose or maybe I did not tighten it enough in the first place, we are going on a longer trip try again.

At the time of purchase I didn't want to spend $400 on ProEfx extendable mirrors (probably will in the future if truck handles trailer well) so I went with this well known affordable option. Like most reviews the cushion pads don't adhere very well to the adjustable feet but that's easily solved with little double face carpet tape. They are doing the job for now...

if the glue on the rubber things didn't tick you off ( because they don't stick ) wait. the rest of this mirror will. Mine lasted one trip when the passenger side decided to fall off . Yes on the highway ! Don't waste your time or money.

With the smaller stock mirrors on the Dakota, I was unable to safely make a lane change towing our travel trailer. The CIPA Universal Towing Mirror gave me just the extension I needed to see what was in the next lane. The shape is a little funny, but I'm hoping that is due to aerodynamics. Installation was OK, but I honestly can't think of how to improve it being that it is a "universal" mirror. I'm concerned with quality and longevity, but that will take time to prove either way.

Adjusting the passener side mirror is very senitive because of the small size of the mirror. I had my passenger attempt to adjust it for me while moving. The entire unit fell off. Since it was dark I did not stop to and find it. A safety strap attached to the stock mirror would have saved me the mirror.

I ordered these mirrors thinking they would have more viewing area, like the ones I used to have for my F150. When they came in, I discovered they were small round ones that stuck out from the mirrors like wings. I would definitly check to see if they make ones that fit closer to the factory mirror and have a larger viewing area, before buying these. I'm using them on a 2008 Tundra...pulling an 8.5 foot wide car hauler.

The mirror was hard to install and once it was installed it did not stay in place. I had to velco the little legs to my outside my mirror to get them to stay in place so I could see what was behide me. The towing mirrors ( i bought 2 ) keep silding down the outside of my mirrors when driving.
