I have tried both and the CIPA mirrors do not damage the std. mirrors and the CAMCO mirrors worked fine. The CAMCO mirrors have an elastic cord to loop over the reg. mirror in case it does come loose. Used them about a yr with no problems. Finally bought a set of oem camper,elec. extending mirrors for a Silverado on ebay and like them much better.

Thank you guys. I have ordered a set of cipas' from my local performance shop dealer. They look like the answer for me. I appreciate everyone's feedback.

I have used mine for about 12,000 miles of towing, and I see very little evidence of wear on my truck mirrors. If only the rest of the truck would wear that good.

X2 on the CIPAs. The only problem I have had was when I got butter fingers and dropped one and cracked the mirror. The good news is that they sell the mirror part separately so it was an easy fix.

2007 Silverado-Help!!

We bought the CIPA mirrors for our 2007 Silverado. However, it seems like the wedge just doesn't tighten up and lock down. Is there something we are doing wrong? Any help-suggestions would be greatly appreciated. By the way-we are picking up our camper on Saturday-so we need advise fast!!

There's a little hole in the wedge try to line up the thumb screw in the hole. Also for some strange reason one wedge has to be pushed in farther than the other one but they have been working great for two years with no problems good luck

Have the CIPAs on my 2009 Silverado and they work great! No damage to the OEMs. I also put some auto wax on the mirrors before installing the CIPAs to provide some extra protection.

CIPA Mirrors

We bought the CIPA mirrors for our 2007 Silverado and they wouldn't fit right-the wedge wouldn't grab when screwing in the knob. I found out on one of the web sites that the mirrors were not made for vehicles having the LED turn signals in the mirror. So unless I hear from someone else that they were able to get them on correctly-I will be returning them. Thanks!
