They work pretty well. On windy days they catch to much air and will push my mirrors in. Be carefull to not over tighten. The gear inside is plasctic and will strip.

I have the CIPA slip on mirrors on my truck. I had them on my past truck to. I love them. When I bought my recent truck I had the option of getting the factory tow mirrors but again decided to get the slip ons. The factory tow mirrors are huge and of course are there all the time and makes pulling into the garage and every day parking I little more challenging. I put them on when needed and take them off when I don't. I have no issues with vibration or any other issues.

Not exactly the same truck but I installed a set of these type mirrors on a 2007 Ford F150. It was simple to install after watching a Utube Vid or two. Took an hour or so. Great mirrors and worked perfect on my truck for several years. Best upgrade I added to the truck. When I traded the truck, they looked so stock, dealer didn't notice that they we not OEM.

I will install the factory type mirrors when weather permits. I just want something in the mean time until then. I am supposed to pick up my trailer on Saturday and think I may need something to get the unit home. Maybe I am over thinking the necessity to do this for a 30 minute ride. Not sure the factory mirrors will provide much of a view to get unit home. I will try the Camco ones to try and get unit home and if they turn out to be garbage I will return them. Thanks for everyone's feedback...

I have been using a pair of these on a 2013 Expedition EL.
They vibrate a little, but not to the point of being useless.
Cannot fold the power mirrors in when connected.
Cannot find anything better at this time.
Does anyone have any info?

I used strap-on mirrors on the old Trailblazer when I was towing a popup and they work ok.

With the TT now I use the Aero ones on the Suburban (when I remember).

Aero 2 Towing Mirrors

Best ones are the OEM, but I don't tow enough to justify the price. Next TV will have them.

I purchased the CIPA mirrors but had to return them as they would not fit my F150 with turn signals in the mirrors. I found the FIT Industries mirrors on Amazon and the fit perfectly, also supposed to fit Expeditions and Navigators. Hope this helps someone looking into slip on mirrors.

That is VERY helpful to know. I got the CIPA mirrors from Amazon, and their site had a place to enter data about the truck to make sure you order the correct mirrors. Don't know if the Amazon procedure would have recognized your mirrors with the signals on them, though. So that's a good thing to keep in mind.

As for the CIPAs in general, I really like mine. Easy to install. Look pretty good and no real vibration. I'm sure there are better ones, but these seem to get the job done.
