I have graduated from a pop-up to a Rockwood mini-lite 2304. I have a 05 toyota 4runner as a tow vehicle. Any suggestions for add on tow mirrors??

I guess that you are finding out that towing mirrors for Toyotas are just a little hard to come by. These are not pretty, and you do have to take them on and off, but the have a good reputation and are made by Hensley. Can't see why they would not fit your vehicle.

I had the CIPA tow mirrors on my F150 and loved them. They were easy to put on and take off and made a world of difference. I'm not sure if they are available for your 4 Runner or not, but they are reasonbly priced around $50 on Amazon.

We have the Cipa UTM mirrors, bought them for our 03 Tacoma. We are towing a 2011 mini lite 2503s and they work awesome, 4 trips so far! We have recently upgraded to a 2011 Tundra and will use the Cipa mirrors as well. We bought the mirrors online at Camping World

You'll get what you pay for with tow mirrors.

We bought the 50$ CIPA mirrors for our 2008 Tundra and they went right back to Amazon the next day. I thought they were big PIA and ugly to boot. Ended up buying aftermarket match for OEM tow mirrors on our Tundra off Ebay (racingguys was the seller) for $250 and they're great.

I have a set of the McKesh mirrors that I used on 1 trip before we upsized our truck.
Thinking I paid $120.00 with the convex add ons.
If you are interested...let me know . Sure we can work something out.


Just looked at McKesh website. Pair of mirrors $133.00 plus $33.00 for 2 convex add ons.
I would take $100.00 plus shipping for them.
