Well take the mirror and slide it onto the original factory mirror. Well make sure that the hook fastens onto the end of the factory mirror, and the threader part goes through the loop thats at the end of the Longview mirror.Well squeeze the two together to run the threads through the loop, and then well install the knob. Well give the knob a few turns, to make sure its straight, then tighten it down for good.

Thats all it takes to install the Longview Towing Mirror. Well move the mirror around and see how much movement it has.With that, thatll finish it for our test fit of part number LVT-1700 from Longview, on our 2011 Chevrolet Express Van. .

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

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

I haven't actually used them yet but I did test fit the mirrors to our van and they appeared to quality item. 76284


I used the to tow our Outback to FL and they were great. The only problem Ive encountered is that I must remove them to park our van in the garage. :

Don - 04/16/2014


Thanks for the follow-up! You're not the first to have that problem. Sometimes they have to come off to leave enough walk-space in the garage.

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


Extra set for another $20.- will not do any good when the mirror flies off during your second summer trip. Its not right to sell a good product like that with cheap plastic retention bolts that are doomed to fail, sooner or later...

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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: 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

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

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

  • Fit of Longview Towing Mirrors # LVT-1700 on 2003 GMC Savana
  • The # LVT-1700 towing mirrors you referenced are indeed a fit for the 1500 and 2500 series of the 2003 Chevy Express/GMC Savana. I have confirmed this with my contact at Longview Mirror. If your van is a 3500 series, you'll need to use a universal towing mirror like the K-Source # KS3891 or the Cipa # 11650.

  • Towing Mirror Recommendations for a 2004 Chevrolet Express 3500
  • According to Longview, the # LVT-1700 mirrors will only fit 2006 to current Chevy Express Van 3500 models or 2003 to current 1500 and 2500 models. Since you have a 3500 they will not fit UNLESS your mirrors are the same as those on the 1500 and 2500 models. They would have to look like the ones in the video I have provided. If you do have different mirrors then you will need to use a universal fit mirror like # 11650 which mounts on the door or something like # CM11954 which is a suction...

  • Slip-On Mirror Fit for 2006 Chevy Express 3500 Series Van
  • According to my Longview Mirror representative, the # LVT-1700 is a fit for 2006 and newer 3500 Series Chevy Express vans, so the mirror would indeed be compatible with your van. Some of the mirrors were produced with one piece of glass, others with two. Regardless of how many pieces of glass your mirror has, the LVT-1700 will fit.

These mirrors fit a range of GMC Savanas from 2003 to 2005 (select models) and from 2006 to 2013 (all models). The vehicle mirrors on your 2002 are not compatible with these custom towing mirrors, and unfortunately we do not have another manufacturer that does offer a set of custom towing mirrors for your van.

  • Mirror Recommendation for a 2008 GMC Sierra that Keeps Hitting a Bridge
  • The shortest mirror we offer that would fit your 2008 GMC Sierra would be the CIPA Custom Towing Mirrors part # CM71700. These extend out 17-1/2 inches from the truck whereas the other mirrors we carry stick out an inch or so further. Either way the best way to stop breaking the mirror will be to avoid that bridge if you can, and to be extra cautious when you do have to drive by it.
