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.

Just returned from my first 500 mile trailer towing trip with these mirrors. It sure is nice to be able to see behind me when towing. Vibration wasn't an issue for me. Mirrors can be installed or removed in just a few minutes. I'm very satisfied with them.

Overall the mirror is a good product. But who orders one mirror? I couldn't believe when the ONE mirror came in. I just received the second one and will be using them both on our next trip to the river. I used the one mirror and it worked great for the driver side at least. :)

The mirrors are pretty good they did not give me the range of veiw around the trailer I would have liked to of had. I have a Tacoma and I'm pulling an 8 foot wide enclosed snow machine trailer. I can see a little better now but they just don't get out far enough. They are pretty good in the wind with minimal vibration, though the straps that hold them on really do sing as you are driving that is kind of annoying.

Just tried the mirrors out for the first time over Thanksgiving weekend towing our RV with my Silverado half ton with standard mirrors. They were a little tricky to get adjusted just right, but once they were where I needed them, they helped a ton for seeing traffic behind me and for lane changes. They do vibrate a little at highway speeds, but not enough to be unuseable. After ordering from AutoAnything, I found the mirrors for cheaper at Camping World. AA promptly refunded me the difference plus a little. As ususal AA rocks the house in terms of customer service.

The mirror is fine in evey aspect however it is smaller than I imagined which makes the view of the side of the trailer limited. I need to set it to either see the wheels (to manage corners, lane lines and curbs) or the area behind to observe traffic. It's small area prevents me from viewing both simultaneously which would have been prefered.
