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 images above.

Today we're going to review part number 10901 this is the CIPA Custom Towing Mirror. It's a slide on design. This one is for the driver's side of the vehicle. This is a custom fit design. This one is designed to fit the 2007 to 2013 Chevrolet, Cadillac and GMC trucks. What I would recommend is go to the product page on our website of this part number and at the bottom of the page it will list the years and models of vehicles this would fit on and it even shows the picture of the mirror types that this is designed to fit on.
This towing mirror will slip over your factory side view mirror to extend your line of sight. It allows you to safely and easily change lanes and pass and park while towing a trailer. It has a manual adjusted mirror here that you can just push on to adjust it just like that. This will let you customize your view. Has an aerodynamic shape to it and when you install it with the included parts it gives you a very tight fit to help prevent vibration and wind noise.
This slip on mirror will maintain your aerodynamics of the factory mirror. It uses the felt covered pieces to go in there and protect your factory mirror and to use the wedge to lock it securely onto your factory mirror. Again this is custom designed for your vehicle. This add on towing mirror will not obstruct your factory mirror and will not interfere with adjustments to your factory mirror. Using the pieces that's shown here, it's a tool free installation. These pieces are made of an ABS plastic and the mirror itself has a durable ABS plastic housing.
The mirror face is a scratch resistant face and this part is for one piece only, the driver side mirror. I do want to give you a few measurements on this. The overall length from end to end is right at 18 inches. Now the mirror itself is going to be about four and a half inches wide. The height is going to be right at about 6 inches tall. Basically the way you go to install this, you'll see that there's two pieces of a felt material with sticky tape on the back, this wedge and then this threaded thumb wheel.
What you would do is when you go to install this you'll take the thinner piece of felt and you'll look and there's a little spot in here that will say foam tape and it's a boxed in area that's exactly where this shows you to tape it on to. The reason you put this on here is that this foam padding will protect your factory mirror. Then you'll take the other piece of the foam padding and put it onto the wedge itself. Then basically what you would do is you would slide this on to your driver's side mirror and then on the back of your wedge you'll see there's a cup shaped opening right there, that would slide once it is on your mirror, you would slide this all the way in here until that cup shaped on the back of the wedge would line up with this hole and then you take your threaded thumb wheel, just put it into that hole and as you thread it down, what's going to happen is it's going to push on this wedge and push it and make a tighter fit up against your factory mirror. You just tighten that down and snug it down, you don't have to over tighten it. Once you do that it will keep the slip on mirror onto your factory mirror so that there's no movement at all. Very simple toolless installation. That should do it for the review on part number 10901 the CIPA Custom Towing Mirror. It's a slip on design and this one is for the driver's side of the vehicle. .

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

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! 13681
Low cost, high value I just bought my 2nd set for my new GMC P/U.I bought both mirrosr , driver and passager. I have used these mirros on my old truck for many years. I hve used them in all types of weather and never a hint of movement or slipping. If you are just a part time camper these mirrors do a great job. No need to pay big bucks for expensive factory replacements. These mirrors do vibrate a small amount but you can still see very well around your trailer and for back up they are priceless. When the camping trip is over just slide them off and put away untill the next trip. 148

EXTENDED MIRRORS ITEMS SEEMS TO MEET ALL THE NEEDS OF WHAT WE HAD EXPECTED. FIT IS EXCEALLANT ON THE FACTORY MIRROR, JUST WISH THE SECURING METHOD WAS A LITTLE BETTER DESIGNED. IT WORKS GOOD, FOR NOW, BUT WITH IT BEING A PLASTIC HOUSING, PLASTIC THREADS, UNDER PRESSURE, I WORRY ABOUT THE FIBRATION & JARRING IT WILL TAKE WHILE ON THE ROAD WILL WEAKEN THE HOLDING ABILITY. OVERALL IT FITS WELL, LOOKS GREAT & THE VISION ASPECT, GREATLY IMPROVED OVER SOME OF THE OTHERS WE HAVE TRIED. 5022

THE MIRRORS GO ON EASY, AND FIT GREAT ON MY 2011 SILVERADO. HAVE YET TO TRY THEM WHILE TOWING OUR TRAILER, BUT I HAVE A GOOD FEELING THEY WILL WORK JUST FINE. I HAVE SPOKE WITH OTHER CAMPERS WITH THE SAME TRUCK AND MIRRORS AND THEY SAY THEY WORK WELL. I GUESS I WILL KNOW BY NEXT WEEK, BECAUSE I WILL TAKING THE TRAILER OUT FOR ITS INSPECTION. 36069
Mirror wobbles within housing I purchased these mirrors for my Ford F-250. The mirrors wobble within the housing so much that nothing can be seen in the mirror, rendering them useless. The Chevy Tahoe version of these mirrors are well built and work perfectly, however the Ford F-250 version are useless. 2335
VERY EASY TO INSTALL THE FIRST TIME. THEY CAN BE REMOVED AND INSTALLED ONLY WHEN YOU NEED THEM SO YOU DO NOT HAVE TO DEAL WITH EXTENSIONS DAY AND DAY OUT. WOULD HAVE LIKED TO SEE METAL TIGHTENING SCREWS INSTEAD OF PLASTIC. HAVE NOT BEEN DISAPPOINTED WITH ETRAILER. GOOD COMPANY TO DO BUSINESS WITH. 83144

Haven't used the mirrors yet for towing, but I put them on just to see how they look. They look good and hopefully do the job. I bought a new 36' travel trailer (big) and I need to see both sides while pulling/backing up. Tracking delivery was easy, the way etrailer has it set up. 38312
