Today we're going to be taking a look at part number LVT-1700. These are the Longview custom towing mirrors with a slip on design for both the driver and passenger side of your vehicle. The custom mirrors are going to fit certain years and models of the Chevrolet Express and GMC Savannah vans. The towing mirrors easily slip over your factory side view mirrors. They're going to help extend your lines of sight. It's going to give you a better view of the road and your trailer and it's going to let you safely and easily change lanes, pass, and park. Here on the mirror face, it's going to feature a first surface chrome plating.
That's going to minimize distortion and it's going to help reduce glare. The mirror face is going to give us a measurement of about four and a half inches going that direction by five and a half inches. It's a good size mirror face. It's manually adjustable. Now each slip on mirror is going to be identical.
I'm just focusing on one today. You can see how you can just push in on the corner, on the sides. That's going to allow you to achieve the angle that you need for your particular application. It's also got a really nice aerodynamic design. That's really going to reduce vibration and wind noise as you go down the road.
Nicely designed here on the back of the housing. The custom design's going to provide a perfect, secure fit for your vehicle. You don't have to worry about the add on mirrors obstructing the factory mirrors. They're not going to interfere with the adjustments that need to be made to the factory mirrors. They're simply just an addition to your mirror. It's a very quick, tool free installation, just three easy steps.
All you have to do is just slide the towing mirror over your factory mirror, take one of your hook arms, place it around the inside edge of your factory mirror, the threaded portion is going to come back through this hole right here. That's when you would place on the hand knob. You would place that on there, you would tighten it down and that's going to secure the mirror in place against your factory mirror. It's got these nice foam blocks here on the inside so as you tighten that hand knob, this is going to press up against your factory mirror for a secure fit. The foam blocks are going to prevent the slip on mirrors from making any type of scratches or marks to your factory mirror. It's made from durable ABS plastic construction when it comes to the housing and the hardware. You're going to get the driver's side and passenger's side mirrors. Both are included. These products are made in the USA. If we take a measurement of the overall length that's going to be added on to our factory mirror, measuring from the inside of the housing right here to the end of the mirror, we're looking at about six inches. That's going to do it for our review of part number LVT-1700. .
Average Customer Rating: 4.6 out of 5 stars (74 Customer Reviews)These custom-fit towing mirrors slide onto your vehicle's existing mirrors to expand your field of vision. Tool-free installation - included arm hooks to the inside edge of the factory mirror and tightens into place with a hand knob.
I needed to extend the view on my 2013 GMC Savana van's right and left side rear view mirrors in order to be able to see around our 8' wide camper. I'd read several reviews and decided to give these LVT-1700 a try. I did have some concerns over ordering them because several reviewers' difficulties with installation; stripped threads on plastic mounting hardware, having to have two people because of the great amount of force required to bend the mirror's frame to get the hardware hooked and tightened... I had also read of users having positive results by their installing the tightening knob onto the hook piece before hooking it onto the existing mirror, so decided to buy them and take this approach. I'm very glad I did. Removing both mirrors from the packaging I slid them onto the existing mirror frames. They were a perfect fit and it couldn't have been easier. I then threaded the tightening knobs onto the hook pieces, only engaging maybe 4 or 5 threads. I then inserted the hook piece through the mounting hole of the LVT-1700 from the front of the vehicle toward the rear so that the hook was facing the inside rim of the existing mirror. Next I applied just enough force on the frame of the LVT-1700 near the mounting hole so that the hook could be slipped over the existing mirror frame's lip. I would estimate that no more than 10-15 pounds of force was required. It was low enough force that I had no concern at all that I was going to damage anything. Once the hook was over the lip I tightened the tightening knob until it bottomed-out (it's a closed end knob, limiting how far it can be threaded on to the hook piece). While tightening, it might be a good idea to be sure the hook remains aligned with the lip of the existing mirror, though I saw no indication that there was any indication it was prone to coming off. I repeated the process for the other side. It took less than 5 minutes to install both mirrors. All the materials looked to be of very good quality and the fit was perfect in all respects. I think I remember seeing on the box that they were made in China, but there's no shoddy quality here. I then climbed into the vehicle and adjusted the mirrors for the proper view. This was easy as well. The motion was smooth with just enough resistance to allow precise positioning, while giving the impression that they will stay where they're put, even with significant vibration. This is yet to be confirmed. The mirrors were distortion free and large enough to be of practical use. I haven't used them with the camper yet, but I'm anxious to do so and feel they will be of significant help. Overall, at this point in time, I am very satisfied with the purchase of these reasonably priced mirrors. 295808

Purchased these slip on mirrors for my 2006 Chevy Express van because of no OEM towing mirror options available for this particular year van. These mirrors FIT EXACTLY over my stock mirrors, they have a good field of view and seem to be constructed of good materials. I have only two problems with this product, first, the hooks provided to clamp mirrors in place were too short. It took two people to install, one to hold mirror in place while squeezing the back side of eyelet where the nut and hook meet, and one person to screw nut on to hook. If the hook was 1 inch longer it would of been a one person job. The mirror IS in place firmly, but it just seems unnatural for it to be bent in such a way. Second issue I had was passenger side mirror does not extend out far enough for me to see straight down my 30 foot travel trailer. I realize that this has no bearing on the quality of product, it just didn't provide me with a much better view on my particular set up. If I was towing a smaller RV or trailer, it would work better. Overall, great product! 150350
Not bad! I read a lot of the reviews before purchase, seemed a little pricey and concerns about installation and plastic bolts, but so far not bad at all! There really aren't a lot of options out there for my 2014 Chev Express Van, unless you want someone to drill holes in your door, which would cost a lot more than $70, no thanks. These just slide right on current mirrors. I was able to install by myself..... I threaded the bolt first, left it loose, snapped the hook on the mirror, then tightened it. Easy Peazy. Like others, I worry about the plastic bolts, but some of the reviews are over 2 years old and they haven't changed a thing, so they must be OK. One reviewer said less likely of vibrating loose with plastic as opposed to a steel bolt, which makes sense.... With these "extenders" my mirrors do stick out a little more but will fold in when necessary, then snap back out into place, so I don't think I will take them on and off too much which means less wear on the plastic bolts. $70 seems a little high, but I would buy them again and also recommend them. 4 stars because of concerns about plastic bolts (they do seem a little cheesy and light weight, but I'm no engineer). No need for extras or replacement bolts because if they fail, I'll be picking up the pieces off the highway, then probably buy a new set. 250163

I would like to say "Thank You!" for the great product that you carry. These mirrors have made my drivers very happy and now they have a better sense of security knowing that they can see the roads much clearer. I have attached a few photos of the mirrors. Thank you very much!!! 154109
by: john b02/23/2015
I like these; it is taking me a little while to find the sweet spot on the right side adjustment. These give me a different perspective of the same items i see with my normal mirrors; which really helps to catch my eyes in my cargo van. 175709
by: Ron W09/16/2015
Only extended mirrors to fit my 2007 E3500. Much, much better than any slip on mirrors I've ever used. They fit right and don't move or vibrate. As with other reviews, I marvel at the cheap appearing plastic mounting screw but I think it may be a safety feature, I hope. Also in line with other reviews, don't try to mount them alone. 3 minute job with two people. Endless frustration done alone. Buy 'em. You won't be disappointed. 225831

After searching for Trailering Mirrors for my Chevy Van, I found these to be the only Model specific Mirrors out there. The Reviews were generally Good with the Only complaint Being about the Installation of the bolts. After watching the Installation Video I decided to Order a set. They were Shipped the same day I ordered them and arrived two days later. I took them out to my van and had them installed in Less than Five minute's. Now they Pop On and Off in Less than a Minute Each. They work Great. It would be Nice if they extended out further for Longer Trailers however they work fine for Mine. As for the Nylon Nuts and Bolts The Engineer in me Says that the Nylon is what keeps them From vibrating Loose going down the Road, Not so sure I would change that out to a Stainless Steel Fastener. Instead I would Make a GIANT NOTE IN RED ABOVE THE INSTALATION INSTRUCTIONS THAT SAYS WACH THE INSTALATION VIDEO FIRST !!!! They Really Go on Quite Easily :) 238493
I haven't actually used them yet but I did test fit the mirrors to our van and they appeared to quality item. 76284

After watching the video I decided to order these mirrors. Like all of my eTrailer purchases the mirrors arrived quickly and packed in a nice strong box. I opened the package at attempted to install the mirrors. I "thought" I would just screw them on with no trouble, oops. I usually read the directions however I rushed ahead without them, wrong move. I had no luck attaching the mirror, what! It's only a knob on a threaded plastis rod! I backed up, read the directions and... a quick and easy install. I took a test drive and the mirrors are as steady as my factory mirrors. They are easy to adjust and do a good job extending the view. All in all lesson learned, read the directions FIRST. 182964

Brought these for my 2011 Chevy Express as I was unhappy with the vacuum mount one i had that sticks right on the existing mirror. These mirrors mount directly to the outer frame of the factory mirrors, they attach solidly, don't vibrate when driving (esp. on the highway) and still allow full function of the factory mirrors. That is a huge plus when backing and maneuvering a trailer in tight spaces. The ability to simply adjust the factory remote mirror to check something is great. Overall I am very happy with these mirrors. As a product improvement I would suggest that the mirrors be made a little bigger. 264032

Nice mirrors. Fast shipping 74651
by: Jim B.12/07/2012
Nice mirrors. Fit well. Only problem is the retention bolts are plastic and were hard to get the nuts on without cross threading. I can see that they may be a problem over time. I may want to get a extra set to have when traveling with the camper. Service, shipping, and communication was excellent, Thanks 60877
I could not find trailer mirrors for my new Chevy one ton van at either Chevy or my local RV dealer. The conclusion was that nobody made them. But, lo and behold, Etrailer comes through once again. Now that I'm back from my trip, I can definitely give these mirrors a positive review. Other reviewers and myself were skeptical of the plastic bolts for attachment. But they work and work well. They stayed on for over 1200 miles without any rattles. They were a natural extension of the factory mirrors. They worked great! 230194

E-trailer's add-on mirrors are a great solution to a vexing problem: My GMC Savannah has no mfgr upgrade to extendable mirrors for trailering. These serve the purpose quite well. My only suggestion is upgrading the plastic J-bolts which clamp onto the van mirror with something more substantial. I'd pay for stainless steel bolt. One bolt has partially stripped threads and I will order replacement bolts so I don't drop it on the interstate. But, other than that, I'm grateful I found E-trailer. 232833
Very hard to find a good, economical solution for towing mirrors for the Chevrolet Express. Great design, very easy to install. The mirrors are adjustable to get the right angle. Shipping time was less than a week on the economy selection. The only down side I see to these is the clips and thumbscrews - they are made of plastic. I could see these threads stripping out after repeated uses from installing and uninstalling the mirrors when not needed. Other than that, a great deal. 57593
by: Douglas H06/07/2013
Mirrors arrived faster than expected and were exactly as described. Previous reviewers had lamented the nylon attachments and I would agree it is the weakest point in the design. The mirrors require several minutes to attach only because the nylon attachments are barely the sufficient length and require a very slight curvature to catch the thread on the nut. Once on the mirrors are very stable and provide the extra visibility needed. Removal is trivial and fast. 83633

Installed extension mirrors on my 2016 Chevy Express van. So far working out great. Needed extra view, when towing my 14' fishing boat. Suggest to thread thumb nuts on holding bolts before installing on mirrors. I found that you need to install retaining nut and holding clip on extension mirror before installing it on original mirror. Then push tab back to catch retaining clip. Easier chance on not stripping threads. Shipping of order went very smooth. UPS 269511

No-one else had these mirrors for my express van. I put them on and installation was easy. I have not used them for towing yet, but they look like they'll work great. 257761
by: Joe B02/04/2016
Installed on my 2015 Chevrolet Express Van. Haven't taken them for test drive yet, but installation was a piece of cake and they appear to be securely attached to the mirrors for the duration. And they look as good as the factory mirrors they're attached to. Real happy with this purchase and etrailers deivery. Showed up in two or three days. woo-hoo! 236946
by: John L.04/05/2015
These mirrors look good on my 2013 Chevy Express 3500 Van. Had to make new screw on clamps right off the bat. The plastic ones stripped and bent first time I tried to put them on. Not as easy as it looks in the video. Would not take much to supply metal clamps instead of plastic. Now with my home made metal clamps I think the mirrors will work great. 183301
by: Collleen K07/27/2014
I have the same comment as the others. I would rather have had the clip/bolt & nut made out of metal. I am concerned about the durability of them. I had a tough time getting it together. It was not a one person job. The mirrors themselves work great. It is much better than the alternative of strap on mirrors. 143126
by: Eric J.10/25/2013
It's great that the Express/Savana vans(finally)have a custom towing mirror. These mirrors work very well. Easy to install, look great. I am curious to see how well the vinyl nut/bolt will last over the years. It's important to make sure that the treads don't get crossed. Overall, I'm pleased. 105149
by: Jim F10/28/2014
The mirror extensions fit those on my vehicle perfectly and as advertised. I was trying to install opposite side and upside down until I read the instructions. They do not shake and give a very clear image, unlike universal fit strap on models I have tried in the past. 158276
by: Paul Weber09/06/2016
Really like the mirrors! Shipping was faster than i expected. Showed them to a friend of mine and wound up giving them the mirrors! Had to order another set for myself lol. I'm just wondering if it is possible to order an extra set of J-hooks, I tend to lose things... 291574
by: Todd G04/16/2013
Fit is good, quality of mirrors seems to be top notch. Only knock is the plastic hardware - but this is the way they all are. I had similar Longview mirrors on a previous vehicle and they plastic screws/nuts never broke, even in heavy wind and rain at freeway speeds. 76401
by: Keith B.05/28/2015
2010 chev express longview mirrors fit very good. My concern is the plastic bolting system if it will hold up, and the plastic ear the plastic bolt goes through I think it is a little thin."But hey it might be just fine" will see how it holds up in real life. 198412
Product fit well. I do not like the plastic anchor bolt; looks like it probably won't last, hope I'm wrong. Also if the bolt (screw) had been a little longer, it would have been easier to install. It was difficult to install with just two hands. 216144
Product received as expected/depicted on web site. Fits on 2005 Chevrolet Express 3500. Only concern is the plastic hook - concerned about wearing out and breaking over time. Excellent communication and tracking provided with order! ! 69080
by: John B06/03/2014
Received the mirrors on Thursday, have used them a few days now and really like them. They fit well and the vision lines are good. I would recommend them to my friends and keep your company in mind when I am looking for other items. 133975
by: Freddie P07/06/2016
Product arrived in a timely manner. Video and instructions were clear. Installed the mirrors by myself in about five minutes. They fit well with no vibration. Gives me additional viewing area while pulling my trailer with my van. 268814
by: Walt Milne06/18/2013
Fit on the Van really nice. I am concerned that the screw clips (which seem to be plastic) might get brittle and break or break if it is tightened too tight. Shipping Price was very fair and the tracking feature was very helpful. 85139
Fit like a glove. No vibration when I'm driving. Great product. So much better than the bungee kind. Only concern is that the attachment apparatus is just plastic. May not last as long as I'd like. but for now it's great 98590
Received the product quick and in a hurry. It was in good condition and as described in the overview in the parts listing. Fit the vehicle perfectly. I will add pictures this weekend during our trip utilizing the product. 301359
by: David M.11/13/2013
Good product....worked as advertised. I agree with some of the other reviews in that the plastic mounting screws could be improved. Be careful....they are easily cross threaded. Also, no vibration while driving! 107260
by: Katy P10/27/2014
We received our mirrors and they were exactly what was advertised for sale. The shipment came quickly and was packaged well. It's a really great thing to be able to match an item to your year, make and model. 157990
by: Jesse E12/19/2013
These are great quality , I've had them for a while . This actually my second pair as the passenger side was stolen . Great hassle free service and quick delivery . I will continue to shop at e trailer 110449
by: Kris Calhoun09/21/2016
GREAT PRODUCT! WE DIDN'T REALIZE WHEN WE ORDERED THAT IT WAS PER SET! WHAT A GREAT PRICE AND NOW WE HAVE TWO SETS! THEY WERE SHIPPED RIGHT AWAY AND EXACTLY WHAT WE ASKED FOR! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!! 297117
by: Gary L.09/04/2013
These mirrors are exactly what I wanted. My only let down was that the shipping time was very long. I would do business with etrailer again, but try to work out a better situation for delivery. 98201
by: Lee Wood08/08/2014
The product did not fit as my express chassis does not have standard mirrors. The mirrors that are on the van were supplied by Coachman as the van is a 24 ft. motorhome. We tried. 145255
by: Comfort Solutions06/05/2015
We had ordered 4 mirrors before and they worked great so we bought 2 more. The roof vent was great for the price. Everything shipped very quickly and Dana M was great to work with. 200804
by: Von O.09/03/2013
I had a little trouble getting them on as it was hard getting the nut started on the hook the hook could be a little longer. They seem very stable and didn't shake while driving. 98044
I read the reviews of others prior to my purchase. I must agree with them. About 1/4 inch added to the attaching bolts would be a plus. Other than that EXCELLENT product. 299631
Couldn't be easier to put on. Used them yesterday for the first time. There's no vibration like the older style we use to use. Wish we would of found these years ago. 88174
by: Jeff R07/27/2016
These aftermarket mirrors gave me great advantage for seeing trailer that was smaller and more narrow than my van. Item came in on time, and the assembly is a snap. 276892
by: Jim B.07/11/2014
Received the items and they were just what Installation was easy, just take care in installing nut, avoid cross threading. Seem to work as intended. Thanks. Jim. 140936
by: Alan S.10/22/2014
great product worked fine for a 1600 mile trip. No issues and no issues on installation. Shipping was next day on a 3 day UPS guarantee. Great !!! 157338
by: Three Foot08/01/2016
Never took them out of the box or installed them my 2012 Express van for my last trip. But I am sure when I do they will fit and work just fine. 278209
other than the plastic "j" bolt that holds these mirrors on, i like them. they seem pretty solid, we will see how they hold up to daily use. 261291
by: David Pearce04/30/2014
Minor concern about the plastic hooks deteriorating and becoming brittle causing loss of mirror but otherwise quite happy with the product. 128334
by: Gus L.10/05/2015
These mirror extensions for my van fit as they advertised they would, perfectly. Easy on/off and a great view of your behind (tee hee). 229264
