Mirrors for truck

Hey everyone. Just a question. What is the best type of add on extension mirrors that would be available for my 2009 Silverado. What products would you recommend?

I bought the Cipa mirrors that slip over my 2001 Silverado mirrors. They work well & are very stable with no vibration. Here is the website for Cipa. Look at the custom mirrors to find what will work with your truck. CIPA-USA - Your one-stop source for mirrors and aftermarket accessories

I had a set of CIPA slip on mirrors I used for about two trips on my Ram 1500. The vibration was so bad that they were useless when in motion.

I installed a factory set of towing mirrors after that.

Factory towing mirrors are the best but I used the slip on CIPA mirrors on my sister's Yukon and was happy.

Ditto on my Ram used the slip ons one time and got the factory power, heated tow mirrors. Hard to beat OEM fit and finish but more costly. I believe the Chevys use a telescopic design and have an integrated turn signals and would be about 300 bucks.

I bought a Reese clip on and a Tow-n-Flat from Walmart. I have not yet installed them but bought one of each to see which one fit the best. I will do so this weekend as I pick up my new TT and report back.
