I have a set of those out in the garage from about thirty years ago. Can't get rid of them actually worked OK before they started making factory option camper mirrors.

I ordered these mirrors and will post my review once I have used them a couple times. Currently use the mirrors that stick to the stock mirror. They work fine but don't give me a clear view of other lanes. They also have fallen off during towing. Lucky they have a strap connected to them so I don't loss them completely.

I bought the popular K-Source clip on with ratchet straps tow mirrors off of etrailer. I can't see what's behind me because of my AC and was hoping these mirrors would do the trick. However, they just don't go out far enough. I can't see even a little behind my camper. I have to wait for bends in the road or instigate trailer sway to see what's behind me.

Since they are cheap, I bought one of the Camco suction cup towing mirrors like the post above and I'm going to stick it to my K-Source mirrors and hope for the best. Im going to install a rear view camera soon so this is only temporary.

If I had a hundred dollars to spend on a mirror I might do this

I purchased these from Amazon. I like them because I can take them on and off very easy and fast! They do the job I need traveling and parking.
These are great mirrors. We use them to tow a ~30' trailer and they do a great job. Haven't had a problem with vibration or anything and they're super easy to get on and off. Haven't hit 160 MPH quite yet but I feel pretty confident that they'll hang on to the mirror at 65.

Any suggestions which towing mirrors work on a 2015 Ford Explorer? I can't find any.
