Use your eyes .. not the mirrors ...

Good point and I would recommend doing both.

Great choice for "Living within my means" and camping for one...

If your wife is going to share any drive time, then most definitely get the side mirrors to increase her ability to see all sides of the rig as it is towing down the road. I am short...have to pull my truck seat all the way forward to reach the pedals. Always adjust the seat back when dropping off at the shop for maintenance...dont want to get sued for broken knee caps on my brake controller. haha

My side mirrors are extremely helpful but even so, when using the Titan, I have a large blind spot on my right side. Nothing beats looking over the shoulder to verify if my lane is clear or not when making any changes....the mirrors are awesome and add one more bit of self confidence when I am towing by myself.
