Suburban Towing Mirrors

I've googled and searched, and it looks like it's a matter of opinion, so:

What's the general consensus for recommended towing mirrors for a 2008 Suburban LTZ? I'd prefer not changing the stock mirrors, as we don't tow often.

Thanks,

- Al

I had the CIPA on my F-150. I thought they worked pretty good. Very little vibration, easy on/off and didn't have to adjust each time I used them.

I use my CIPA mirrors every trip, love them.
I have a set of the "strap-on" mirrors that had so much vibration that it was almost impossible to to use them. Those mirrors are now in a box under the one of the beds in the camper until I have a friend who REALLY needs them.

I use CIPA Custom Tow Mirrors.



They slip over your factory mirrors. Go toCIPA USA.com. Click on Products, then RV & Towing, then on Custom Towing Mirrors. Scroll down to Part # 10900 for the pair.
