Mirror extender's Needed?

Newbie here with my first post. Woo Hoo!!! OK, got that out of the way.
Anyway more to the point here, we just bought a new 2015 2503s Mini-Lite this past fall. At the time I purchased my TV was a 2008 F150 and I noticed that I might like mirror extenders on it.
Well since then I purchased a 2014 Ram 1500 Big Horn and it just looks wider than the F150. My question is does anyone have experience with this setup and do you need the extenders. I would rather not having to use them but don't want to find out too late that I need them.

You will need to see what is going on around you ALL the time! It's not your ability to drive it's all the other idiots out there. You will have a lot going on changing lanes,passing an getting passed,turning,backing up you name-it you'll want to know what is happening. CW has several types of mirrors you can get if you don't like them you can always take them back.
Get a pair for everyone's safety.

factory tow mirrows are available but double check your mirrors first they might pull out for towing.

I've checked the mirrors, not the pull out type. Guess I could hook it up and do a test drive around the area. Might be an option once I get it uncovered.

Saber - I pull a similar trailer (Rockwood 2604WS) with a '14 Ram that does not have factory towing mirrors. I purchased a set of clamp on mirrors (they're 1500 miles away right now). I found that the driver's side clamp on is a tremendous help in seeing what's behind the trailer as you travel. The passenger's side is less helpful because the Ram mirror is convex and shows nearly as much as the clamp on. Just my experience.

On my 2014 Ram the mirrors do not pull out, but rotate like this youtube video demonstrates.

I have a 13 Ram and bought the extenders that go right over the stock mirrors and they work great and are a lot cheaper then buying the factory tow mirrors and then having the computer flashed by the dealer so they work right.
