The FastHitch makes it easy for one person to hook up to a trailer without assistance. The convex mirror provides a broad field of vision to give the driver a clear, unobstructed view of the trailer coupler and ball.

Unfortunately CIPA does not publish a critical specification - how thick a tail gate the arms will fit. When my mirror arrived I found that it would not fit on my 2010 Ford F-150. Here is the missing number, the mirror will fit tail gates up to 3-7/8 inches thick. Other than that the mirror is a great solution. It is a full 9 inches in diameter and shows up well in the truck's interior rear view mirror. In the end I decided to make an adapter (see photo) so I could use it. A side benefit is that I do not need to fold back the tonneau cover to use the mirror.10711
The device is simple and quite effective. It doesn't break like cameras. The set up is around 5 seconds. Yes, it doesn't have a wide field of view. You have to get in the ballpark. It is amazing how your body seems to know how to turn if you look at the mirror directly or through the rear view mirror. If you are looking through many dark windows, try putting light colored tape on the hitch and receiver to make them easier to see. Forget using this in the dark or low light conditions.20805
Really flimsy. I doubt it will last one season, but it does work well.76677
