Durable mirrors slide over the driver's-side and passenger's-side mirrors on your Ram 1500 to extend your line of sight while you're towing. Felt-covered wedge locks securely fasten the slip-on mirrors in place. Tool-free installation.
Custom-Fit Towing Mirrors
Easily extend your field of vision and reduce blind spots with these CIPA slip-on towing mirrors. By adding them to your OEM side-view mirrors, 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.
Each of these mirrors is molded to perfectly match the contours of your factory side mirrors. Simply slide the mirrors over your side-view mirrors and use the custom-formed, felt-covered wedges to hold the mirrors in place. Each wedge wraps around the inside edge of your OEM mirror and can be tightened onto the mirror with an easily accessible hand knob.

Today we're going to review part number CM11400. These are the CIPA Custom Towing Mirrors. They are the slip-on design. This part number is for a set of two, both the driver side and the passenger side mirror. Now these are custom fit, these are designed to fit the Dodge Ram trucks, starting in 2009. What I would recommend is to go to the product page on our website of this part number. At the bottom of the page, it'll list the years and models of the Dodge Rams it will fit on and it'll also show a picture of the factory mirror they're designed to fit on to help you decide.
Now these towing mirrors will slip over your factory side view mirrors to extend your line of sight. This will allow you to safely and easily change lanes to pass and even park while towing a trailer. The mirror face on them are manually adjustable. You just push to wherever you want them. This will let you customize your view. They also are very aerodynamic shape and the tight fit when you install them will help prevent vibration wind noise.
The slip on mirrors maintain the aerodynamics of the factory mirrors. It uses a wedge lock to securely hold these slip on mirrors in place. I'm going to show you how that would install in a minute here. Now these are custom design for your vehicle, the add-on towing mirrors will not obstruct your factory mirrors and they will not interfere with adjustments to your factory mirrors. These pieces are what are used to install them. There's no tools required.
The pieces are made of an ABS and prolypropylene plastic and they do come with a nice set of illustrated instructions that will help you install, very simple to install. Now the mirror housing itself, they're made of a durable ABS plastic. The mirror face right here is scratch resistant. Again this part number will include two mirrors, the driver's side mirror and the passenger side mirror. Just to give you an idea I'm going to measure one of these. They both have the same measurements.
We're going to measure the overall length. The length is going to be right around 18 inches. I'm going to give you measurement on the mirror face itself. Going to be about 4-1/2 inches wide and the overall height is going to be right at about 6 inches. When you go to install these, now each mirror will come with two wedges and neoprene strip and a thumbwheel, threaded thumbwheel. Now only one wedge is required, you do not need to use both of them but the reason they give you two of them, one is a thin one, one is a thicker one, depends on the style of the mirror you have. The thinner one is designed for the chrome plated mirror, the one that will have the chrome cap on it. The thicker one is for your standard mirrors. Depending on what mirror design you have is what wedge you use. Once you get the correct wedge. You'll take the neoprene strip, has a backing strip, you just peel that off. Put that on to them, the reason you're going to put this on is because this side of the wedge will be up against your factory mirror. This neoprene strip will help keep it from sliding up against it and scratching your factory mirror. With the neoprene strip installed, do note the back of the wedge has this molded cup area, what you end up doing is on the mirror right here. There's a recess section right here. You'll see as I turn this, this part will actually stick out. When the slide is on the factory mirror, you have a little opening right here. You'll take this wedge and just slide it into that opening. You slide it pretty much until it's flushed on the end and that will pretty much line your molded cup with the hole, the threaded hole in the mirror. Once you slide that in and line that up, then you would take your threaded thumbwheel put it into there and just start tightening it down its thread, so it'll thread in. As you thread that in more, what eventually happen is it'll push this wedge out some because this is up against your factory mirror, it'll tighten up that wedge in there and give you a secure fit so the slip on mirror will stay secure onto your factory mirror. Very simple installation. One thing I do want to mention is on these thumbwheel, it's plastics so you just tighten it a little bit, you don't over-tighten it but that should do it for the review on part number CM11400, CIPA Custom Towing Mirrors, slip on design in both the driver's side and the passenger side. .
Average Customer Rating: 4.7 out of 5 stars (573 Customer Reviews)Durable mirrors slide over the driver's-side and passenger's-side mirrors on your vehicle to extend your line of sight while you're towing. Felt-covered wedge locks securely fasten the slip-on mirrors in place. Tool-free installation.

I was looking for towing mirrors for my 2012 Dodge Ram 2500 SLR. When I purchased my truck, it didn't come with any towing mirrors, even though it has a tow package. You would assume if a big truck has a towing package, towing mirrors would be standard. I found very expensive mirrors but I wasn't going to pay the high price if I could avoid it. I started looking into the CIPA products in 2013 but couldn't find the slip on type mirrors for my truck. I contacted CIPA directly and was informed that they didn't make a slip on mirror for my truck, nor did they know if they were going to make some. A year later I again started looking for mirrors on the internet and came across etrailer. The information on this product indicated that it would fit my 2012 Dodge Ram 2500, but no mention of the SLR package. I contacted etrailer via email and they informed me that CIPA said the mirrors wouldn't fit my truck. I personally contacted etrailer and spoke to a very helpful and patient sales person, Dana M. She looked at all of the information on this product and was very positive about the mirrors fitting my truck. So I ordered the product after Dana informed me that I could send them back and the shipping would be paid for by etrailer. With nothing to lose, the mirrors were sent to me. I opened the boxes and put them on my truck. They fit perfect! They don't vibrate, and they look like they came with my truck as a stock item. I can see around my RV and it gave me peace of mind. I would highly recommend this product! The sales person (Dana) is a great asset at etrailer. Thankyou Etrailer 125556

Just returned from a four day trip towing our new travel trailer behind my Dodge Ram 1500 Hemi. The TT towed great and these mirrors worked perfectly. On my truck, they stick out just far enough to clearly see the lanes on each side and provide and excellent view down the side of the trailer to the back making it much easier to change lanes. Because of the distance to the back of the trailer (30+ feet from the driver's position), depth perception is important and you still have to use some judgement as to when you have cleared the traffic in the next lane but I'm sure that's the case with any set of mirrors. One more thing about this company. I mistakenly ordered two sets of mirrors which was caught by their order department before shipment. They contacted me to clarify whether I wanted one or two sets. My credit card had already been charged for two sets but a refund for one set was promptly made. Great customer service! 77856
Overall very nice but the fact the locking thumbscrew shaft is metal and the threads in the mirror body are plastic leads me to believe I will have to add a threaded metal insert into the body of the mirror at some point. Otherwise it's only a matter of time before the plastic threads in the mirror body strip. It would have cost only a few $ .00 to ultrasonically or thermally weld a threaded metal insert into the mirror body. If that had been done I would have given this mirror a 5 (five) rating. Why do I know?...My undergrad degree is in plastics engineering.... 77374

Excellent product!! These mirrors fit my 2013 Ram beautifully and they look like factory. Seeing as how you can't buy factory tow mirrors for the 2013-2014 ram's yet these were a great option. I have to be honest im not an aftermarket parts guy I usually buy factory, however this time im glad I went to e trailer and picked these up. Shipping was fast. Overall great experience. 136385

Mirrors installed within a few minutes and gave me much more viewing area. They are fairly strong and actually look factory installed. I do wish they would have a metal thread instead of the plastic, but I don't see why it wouldn't last a long time with some routine care. Very impressed with etrailer.com and how quick and easy my order came in!! 100927

I had a hard time finding towing mirrors at an affordable price. My truck dealer, told me they don't make them. I found etrailer and they solved the problem. Marcia A. was knowledgeable and I got the mirrors on the scheduled day. I will use etrailer in the future. The price was great and the product outstanding. 139448

The mirrors fit my 2013 Dodge Ram Express perfectly. Placed the order Sat. evening and received it the following Tues. morning. Can't beat that kind of service! And the order was well packed and secure in a very strong shipping box. Keep up the good work Etrailer. As usual, I'm very pleased with your service. 100519
Used mirrors on our truck with our RV and can see behind the RV. The threads on the screw on the mirror attachment for the passenger side was deformed at the upper end due to the mold attachment when it was made. Was able to work through deformity. Recommend this product highly. 107373

Great service, the sales staff was very knowledgeable and helpful. The order shipped quickly and arrived within the period quoted and packaged very well. This was my second order this year and I highly recommend etrailer to any one that ask. Thanks for the help. 106942
Sturdy look & feel to the mirrors. They look to be made of same material as the original mirrors. Super simple to install. Now I can see the dummies that pull up right behind my boat when I'm towing ! Quick shipping ! Thanks for that ! 85140

Before I bought these, I was looking through the reviews to see if they fit my 2012 Ram 1500. They do! So I am reporting this information for the next person wondering the same thing. 94287

Simple product to install. I have only used them for a few miles, so can't vouch for how long they will last. I like that they install without any modification to my existing mirrors. The only complaint is that the little insert pieces will be easy to lose when the mirrors are not installed on the vehicle. Some sort of retainer leash would be nice. 143379
by: Dave Louthan04/07/2012
These mirrors are very good and look good on the truck which is very important. The vision you get is very good and are adjustable. I am looking forward to using these mirror this boating season. 36467
Everything is here on the same day we picked up the truck. We purchased the trailer mirrors for the 2013 Toyota Tundra and the Flip Step. I have included pictures of the mirrors and will include pictures of the Flip Step after I install it tomorrow. Wonderful service and a good product. Cheers to all of you, 91707
Great product! The mirrors fit my Tundra perfectly. They are easy to install and did not shake at all on the freeway or over gravel roads. We went over 5,500 miles through thunder storms and rough roads and the mirrors did not even budge. The mirrors are easy to adjust once installed and allowed me to see vechiles behind my 30ft trailer and blind spots. When installed the seamless fit made the mirrors look like part of the truck. My passangers did not even notice them. 88842

I bought both sides for my 2011 silverado and they look really good they look like they are factory mirrors install very quickly about 1 minute a side and they still allow the mirror to fold in if need be and they don't hit the side of the truck when folded in they fit my needs just fine the only complaint I have is the mirror itself could be bigger its about 1/3 the size of my factory mirror you have a decent blind spot when using them you just have to check yourself and its not a problem other than that they fit my needs well and come on and off quickly so they work really well if you don't tow 247 but it you tow very often like for a living I would recommend the full replacement ones cause they have less blindspot but if you tow every now and then they will suit your needs just fine I would recommend this product it you tow every now and then 28913

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

I bought these for my 2013 Tundra. They do not fit very well. I can get them tightened down good and they wont come off, but they are slightly out of level with the factory mirrors. In other words they are not fitting tightly as I'd like. They work, but I'm not happy with them. The mirrors that just clip on with bungee chords work much better. Bad part is that I had to install them and use them to figure out they didn't fit well. And now etrailer wont take them back. They were great in getting me in touch with the company. But the CIPA folks were no more help. After installed and going down the road the mirrors move a little and there are visible gaps at the bottom corners. And they are all the way tightened down...I've even over tightened them to where the plastic tightening bolt (which I didn't like, feels cheap) starts to raise the mirror up so that the wedge comes out of the groove. Bottom line is that I do not like these mirrors. They don't fit tight enough for me. 120412

These towing mirrors are light weight, fit nicely over existing mirrors and very easy to install in just a few minutes. The first time you install them will take about 5 minutes each (because you have to install a felt strip to the back of mirror inserts) but future installs will only take a couple of minutes. The mirrors are adjustable so you can set them to meet your trailering specific needs. They significantly improve rear vision - especially for towing trailers that are wider than the towing vehicle. I have not tried my mirrors other than to install them to ensure fit and a short drive in town) - they feel secure and do not vibrate....so far so good. I am also very impressed with etrailer.com's service. They kept me informed of order receipt, shipment and also delivery. They upgraded my shipping at no additional charge so I got the product in just a couple of days. You can't beat this level of customer service. 105638

I have just recieved my mirrors and am very pleased so far, they seem to fit very nice and snug with the spacer bar that fits in side the shell to lock in place, once you slide it into place. the instructions were very easy to follow, I had to make a guess that the strip of felt went on the bracket that slides against the mirror, the instructions did not say where it went. As the instructions say, it does make a little scuff mark, so clean and wax your mirror first as they suggest. I am also very pleased at the way they look on the truck, so look at my pictures and see what you think. I have not as of yet driven anywere yet to see how they are in the wind, but I feel by the way they fit all should be good. 18321

I purchased both right and left mirrors from etrailer.com, along with a hitch. I was surprised that the shipment arrived a day earlier than the the expedited arrival date I was quoted - for no additional fee! I installed the mirrors-using all included parts-and took the truck for a test drive. There was some vibration in the add-on mirrors, but not anything like what I was lead to expect. Maybe some of the other users didn't apply the sticky backed cloth, or didn't align the slot in the brace with the tab in the mirror case properly. I took the time to look at it closely and I'm very pleased, except for the minor vibration. I did screw the retainer screws all the way down to the bottom-with no cracking or splitting of anything-and the add-on mirrors seem to work just fine. Thank you etrailer for your service and CIPA for a well engineered, inexpensive set of mirrors. 44974

Fit is perfect; very good size mirrors; look better than the Ford extenables; I can take them off when not needed; lets the turn signals show through; the auto fold mirror function works with them on; very easy to put on and remove; look good on even a KING RANCH! 45477
Great service. Two days and had my order in time for their first use. Installed the mirrors in a few minutes and was pleased with the quality and fit. Nice to do business with an American Company with American values selling an American made product. Good job Etrailer!! 58691

Review update: The order process was simple and the shipping was fast. Unfortunately, I ordered the wrong mirror by not carefully studying all the info on the product page and was painfully told by customer service, in effect, a picture is worth more than words... Two simple phrases on both the driver and passenger side versions of this mirror such as "Important - this item will not fit all Toyota Sequoias. Please make sure your mirrors look like the one in the picture" would have led to a better study of the picture they show of the mirror my Seqoia appearently should have. I will give both the website and customer service another try each with more attention to detail on my part before I make a final decision to continue to do business with them. 16873
I was really impressed with how easy it was to order these!! Judy was very helpful on the phone and made sure that these would fit my truck. Tracking them was also nice because there was a map that showed exactly where they were at all times!! They arrived very quickly and were packaged securely... When we got them it was so easy to install them that we were done within minutes!!! We were so happy with how great they looked and couldn't believe how easy it was!!! Before we ordered these we were gonna order mirrors from ford and have them installed but they would have been $500, and they were permanent, whereas these are easily removed and only a fraction of the price. Thank you etrailer for making fast and easy for us!!!!! 49881

Service and product review. Everything began with the virtual storefront providing a comprehensive review of the product and a competitive price. I could not find a brick and mortar dealer for this product in my area with such a minimal lead time. $450 for a set of OEM tow mirrors was not in the budget I purchased two towing mirrors for my 1500 Silverado. One was out of stock in the warehouse, but a customer service rep called me to tell me it would still ship and arrive the same day, just not in the same package from etrailer. This simple act gained my confidence in etrailer to recommend them others. The products purchased installed simply and quickly. Great Job! 13682

Helps see what I was missing I purchased both the driver and passenger mirrors. Both were easy to prep for installation and the installation was a snap. I am glad it has an adjustable screw on the back to make sure it is snug. I was concerned that it would make rattle loose in heavy winds but I did not have any issue when using these. It gets pretty windy out here in the CA Bay Area Delta. These were an exact fit over my stock mirrors and although my Suburban mirrors are of considerable size, these deffinately made a difference when it came time to back up with my rig or spot deep vehicles when it came time to change lanes. 2987

The mirror fit my 2011 Tundra okay. I say okay because in order to tighten the mirro on so that it will stay, it buldges out of the track inside a little. If I loosen it so that it isn't buldging it is VERY easy to pull the miiror off and I assume it will fall off just as easy. If you over-tighten it it is easy to pull off as well. I did get them on and I drove down the road this morning with no apparent vibration or loosening so it looks like they will work. It is probably the cheapest solution, but I don't think it is the BEST solution. I would rather have the factory mirrors and I will probably save up my money to get them. 22830

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. 23989
