Custom-Fit Towing Mirror
Easily extend your field of vision and reduce blind spots with this CIPA slip-on towing mirror. By adding it to your OEM side-view mirror, you can see beyond the end of your trailer. This will allow you to safely and easily change lanes, pass, and park with a trailer in tow.
The mirror is molded to perfectly match the contours of your factory side mirror. Simply slide the mirror over your side-view mirror and use the custom-formed, felt-covered wedge to hold the mirror in place. This wedge wraps around the inside edge of your OEM mirror and can be tightened onto the mirror with an easily accessible hand knob.
Slip-on mirror will fit factory mirrors that look like the mirror in the image above.
Slip-on mirror will not fit factory mirrors that look like the mirror in the image above.

Today we're going to review part number 11802. This is the CIPA Custom Towing Mirror. This is a slip on design for the passenger side of your vehicle. Now this is a custom fit design. It is designed to fit the Ford F150 trucks, the crew cabs, the regular cab, super cab, or the super crew cab starting in model year 2004. What I would recommend is to go to our website and, on the product page of this part number, at the very bottom of the page it'll list the years and models of the vehicles it'll fit on.
It'll also have a picture of the mirror it is designed to fit over. Now this towing mirror will slip over your factory side view mirror, extend your line of sight, and it will also allow you to safely and easily change lanes, pass, and even helps you park while towing a trailer. It's a manually adjusted mirror face. You can see, just by pushing on it you can adjust it to customize whatever view you need. It is a nice aerodynamic shape and the tight fit when you install it will help prevent vibration and wind noise. A slip on mirror will maintain the aerodynamics of your factory mirror and using these parts here, it's a felt covered wedge lock that will securely hold your slip on mirror in place.
Again, this is custom designed for your vehicle. The add-on towing mirror will not obstruct the factory mirror and it will not interfere with adjustments on your factory mirror. As a matter of fact, if you even look at the bottom, you can see the openings they have cut in here for the turn signal lights on your factory mirror so you're still able to see those. It's installed by using a wedge and this threaded thumb wheel. It doesn't require any tools to be installed.
It's a tool free installation. The installation parts are made of an ABS and polypropylene plastic and it comes with some nice illustrated instructions to help you install it. Now just one thing I wanted to mention to you is it does show two wedges here. You actually only need to use one of them. The reason they include two is because the year of some vehicles use a different wedge. In other words, this one right here is designed to use on the 2004 to 2007 vehicles.
This one here is used on the 2008 and newer. I am going to show you how this installs a little bit later here, but basically, the mirror itself is a durable ABS plastic housing. The mirror face right here is a scratch-resistant face and this part number does include one mirror, the passenger side mirror only. Now I do want to give you some overall dimensions on this. The length of this mirror from end to end, you can see, is going to be right at about eighteen inches. The mirror face itself is going to be four inches wide and six and a half inches tall. Now when you do go to install this, again, as I mentioned earlier, you want to pick the correct wedge that will fit your year and model vehicle. So in this case we're just going to pick this one that fits the 2004 to 2007 vehicles and then you'll have this piece of felt material with the sticky back. What you'll want to do is take this felt and adhere it, pull that tape off, and then adhere it right in here on your wedge. And the reason you're going to do that is because when this is wedged in, this part here will be up against your factory mirror, so that felt backing right here will help protect your factory mirror from getting scratched. So once you install that, then what you'll want to do is if you look at the mirror, it has this raised slot right in here you can see that'll stick out some so when this slides over you'll be able to insert the wedge right in here and just slide it down. You'll see there's a threaded hole in the mirror, right here. That's where this threaded thumb wheel will go into. So basically, what will happen is if you'll look at the back of the wedge, it has this molded cup right in here. That's where the threaded thumb wheel will go into, so basically, what you will do is slide this onto your factory mirror, slide the wedge in between your factory mirror and the slip on mirror until that molded cup area aligns with the threaded hole. Once you do that, then you get your threaded thumb wheel and start turning it, tightening it down. What will happen is with this installed against your factory mirror, as you tighten this down it will push out on this wedge and form a nice fit between the slip on mirror and your factory mirror to keep it from moving and staying attached. On this thumb wheel, you do want to just tighten it down enough to where it's tight. You won't want to over tighten it. And that's how it's easily installed that way. But that should do it for the review on part number 11802, the CIPA Custom Towing Mirror. This is the slip on design for the passenger side of the vehicle. .

Pictures of the mirrors in action, fits are perfect! They look way better than the extendable tow mirrors that are factory. They also let the auto fold function on the mirrors fold just fine. 47678
The bad news is that I had forgotten how much of a pain it was to manually adjust outside mirrors. The good news is that the driver and passenger side mirrors are great. They fit firmly over the OEM mirrors. No shake or jitter more than a normal mirror. The best news - These mirrors are available from several sources, in models for several vehicles. ONLY etrailer.com gave me details and pictures in the description to make sure I ordered the right product the first time. As always shipping was fast and efficient. I ordered them on Sunday afternoon, they were shipped within 24 hours and arrived on Wednesday. 23988

The custom tow mirrors we purchased for our new 2013 Ford F150 fit the neatest and look the best of any set we have ever had. We have been towing Airstreams for over 30 years with different tow vehicles and have used many other mirrors from Camping World (one size fits all but they don't) and McKesh. None can compare to your Cipa mirrors. Good fit, top quality and smart look and to top it all . . . MADE IN THE GOOD OLD U S of A. Thank you! 110095

Put my extended mirrors on today when ups delivered them. They not only look great, they look like factory extended mirrors and I know that because my son-in-law has an F-150 like mine and he has factory extended mirrors. Couldn't be happier with your product, unless you lowered the price. lol Now I'll be able to tow my new travel trailer and be able to see how to pass and back-up. Thanks for a great product. It is what you said it is in the ad. 57583
The product was very well described on the site allowing me br very confident that what I ordered would fit. The order was processed very promptly on the day I in fact ordered, I received notice that day that it was shipped. When I received the product it was very well packaged and exactly what I ordered and when installed fit perfectly just as reported. I was very pleased with e-trailer and will used them in the future as need arises. 106284
The mirror extensions were as pictured and described. They are very solid and fit perfectly/snug on our 2005 Ford F-150 and look great! E-Trailer delivered on time with the packaging more than adequate. These were purchased for the hauling of our 17 1/2 ft. Lund boat. Haven't trailered the boat yet so we don't know yet if we can see behind the boat which is the main purpose of purchasing these mirrors. 50045

The product came in in a timely manner and was very simple to put on and take off my vehicle. The look and design is what I was looking for as I have a stylish looking truck and you can't tell that they are an after market item. The mirror view is somewhat limited because the mirror is narrow, but it's very helpful as I am pulling a 34' travel trailer. I can now see cars approaching and behind me. 24038

I had a different pair of slide on mirrors that vibrated too much to see anything. These CIPA mirrors are great no vibration at all and they are very clear. The service from this website (etrailer.com) was awesome. The mirrors were delivered extreme fast. This was a great purchase overall. I recommend the site and mirrors to anyone. 37861
These easily installed mirrors exceeded my expectations. They match the factory mirrors in material, color and texture. The prompt shipping, tracking info, and follow-up by the etrailer staff was exceptional. I look forward to additional business with you. 74332

I installed driver and passenger towing mirrors today on my 2011 F-150. They fit perfect and are easy to remove and put back on as needed. They have cutouts for the signal lights in the mirrors. A great product at a reasonable price. 18927
These things WORK. I had tried those "fits all" products and dumped them in the trash. Now when I'm towing the trailer I can actually SEE what's behind me! Thumbs up, too, for promptness and good service from etrailer. 39880
by: Jerry T12/28/2012

I bought these mirrors for my 2010 F150 because of the factory fit. They are easy to install and fit tight against the factory mirrors. Definately worth the money to have a better view around a trailer. 52692
by: Gregg S03/30/2011
Excellent fit for the standard mirrors on our 2010 F-150 XLT. The attachment seems secure but we have not used the mirrors at highway speed. (yes, we bought both driver and passenger mirrors). 10709
by: Chad R.09/19/2013
Easy installation on my 2007 F150 XLT Extended Cab, looks great too. Doesnt look cheap like other add on mirrors. Much cheaper than buying through Ford.Snug fit. Highly recommend 100585
