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: 4.6 out of 5 stars (73 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

very quick delivery after order date. I just used the mirrors for the first time. Fit very nice and very little vibration. Can see behind very good on the drivers side The only thing that would be nicer for these mirrors would be if the passenger side would extend out a little farther to make the vision behind on the passenger better. Otherwise I like these mirrors very much. I would definitely recommend these mirrors 147101
by: Arron B.06/18/2014
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

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

Product claims to be designed to fit mirrors on 2009 Dodge Ram 1500. It is a very sloppy fit! I don't believe it is at all a "custom" set of mirrors. It is more or less a generic set of mirrors which are sent in specially printed boxes labeled "for 2009 Dodge Ram." Very disappointing. Certainly way over-priced for what they have turned out to be. I'm not sure they'll actually stay on the truck Quite wobbly, even though fully tightened. I'm going to assume that this is the best they can do...but will have to wait and see. Probably should have gone to Camping World. 167678
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

I put these towing mirrors on my 2015 Ram 1500. I tow a 32 ft travel trailer and these mirrors worked perfectly. I have excilent view on both sides of my trailer. I thought I might have a problem with the mirrors wobbling around because they did not fit snug on the truck mirrors and after tightening the tension screw the mirrors were still able to be moved up and down with little effort but they didn't move at all on the highway at 65mph with a cross wind. Extremely happy with this purchase. 217442

installed extended mirrors in less than 5 min while having a conversation with my wife. The spacers were easy to determine. Used the mirrors this weekend with my camper plus utility trailer hauling my 4 wheeler. What a blessing to be able to see the cars behind me! These were the perfect edition in preparation for my Colorado trip and did not cost me the 800 from the dealership to put on factory mirrors. 229066
by: Dan S.03/20/2015
Product fit as advertised on my 2012 Ram 1500. Seem to mount solidly. One issue - the threads in the hole for the thumbscrew did not extend deep enough to allow the screw to extend fully into the wedge. Luckily, I have a 3/8"x16 NC tap that I used to chase the threads completely, then it worked like a charm! I like that the mirrors are ball-mounted and adjust in all directions. 180001
by: Karl C.08/06/2015
Excella product. I had to attach the mirrors to bring my trailer home. Installation was straight forward and easy. The mirrors were easy to adjust and allowed me to see around the trailer deep into the two lanes on either side of me. The trip home was 80 miles, half on interstate and half on surface roads. Great first test and they passed with flying colors. 217098
by: Glen G.09/21/2013
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
by: Flippin Oldie08/14/2015
Service and delivery extremely fast and professional. Ordered on 8/11, shipped 8/12, received 8/14. I'll get a chance to try this weekend. Mirrors look great. They did have a little extra space which allowed up and down movement. I put a strip of self-adhesiving insulation st Rt ips. Perfect now, no movement at alGreat buy so far. 219238

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
by: Mike S.09/18/2013
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
I like the tow mirrors and expect they will do well. I would rec. that a 3/8 - 16 bolt be used to complete and smooth the threads for the plastic hold down bolt. I used foam weather stripping on top channel of mirror to tighten fit. A safer ride with no surprise on the sides. 204637
by: Donald H.11/11/2013
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
by: Barb U.09/15/2014
Used this product for the first time hauling the fifth wheel camping last weekend. Took a little time to get use to looking into the extended mirrors and not the truck mirrors, but liked them very much.. Worked great. Worth the money. 151167
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
When installing, I noticed that these slip up and down on my OEM mirrors, but once installed, the slip is minimal. Very little vibration even at Freeway speeds. I would recommend these to others looking for an economical solution. 192990
by: John G.03/02/2016
Mirrors fit perfect. Easy installation and no harm to the truck mirrors. Plus the mirror has a large viewing area compared to others I've seen and used. I've purchased a Hybrid snowmobile trailer and they work perfectly. 239246
by: Bob B02/16/2015
I got mirrors for my truck in a short time after ordering. They fit perfectly. I can now see to change lanes with 5th wheel in tow. Thanks etrailer for this great fix for my hauling problems. Very satisfied customer. 174888
looks good, easy to install however one of the screw knobs would not go all the way in. I had to run a tap into the screw hole to improve the threads. I have not taken a trip using them yet. 185453
Arrived 4 days after ordering. Only complaint is had to use pliers to get the set (thumb) screws in to secure mirror. Great fit and should work great. Better than the clamp on type. 220764
by: Todd J.08/09/2013
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
by: Mike F.01/09/2015
Both items (3 pieces) were exactly what I wanted. They showed up faster than I anticipated and were well packed. This was my third order from etrailer and once again, fully satisfied!! 168386
by: Ray W.01/06/2016
This is the best alternative to buying new mirrors for towing out there. Installation was very easy and construction of the product is just as sturdy as the stock mirrors. 234839
by: Corey J06/22/2015
Great mirrors, really easy to install, shipping was really fast. Only complaint is that I have the puddle lights on my truck so they don't fit quite as good as they should 206430

Tekonsha P3Trailer break with the Plug-in wiring for 2012 Ram installed in 10 minutes and operation setup was just as quick. Easy to operate, works great. 129118
by: Jim O.08/17/2015
We have used this product before, but because we got a different vehicle we had to purchase a bigger one. We love these mirrors and they go on so easy. 219840
Mirrors seem ok. One of the mirror housings was not threaded very well so one of the knobs did not tighten very well and gauld some when installed. 172742
by: Dan A07/22/2015
Boxes had been opened and more importantly the retaining screws had mismatched Logos. One was "CIPA" the other "FORD" for my dodge truck! 213655
by: Tom B06/18/2015
Great product. Easy ordering. Was kept apprised of order status and shipping. Will most definitely order from here again overall great experiance 204203

by: John M05/10/2015

Great product. Installation was easy. install the mirrors in less than 20 minutes. Thanks for a great product at a great price. 125846

These towing mirrors really help out, we have an extra wide horse trailer and our Ram 2500 did not come with towing mirrors. 134087

Nice mirrors. Looks like they will do the job and not slip off as previous mirrows have. Thanks 216938
Have not had a chance to use them on the road but fit is good and visual seems to be what we need. 234331
