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.

The mirror also lets you retain use of the features on your factory mirror. Cutouts in the towing mirrors line up with the turn signal, puddle lamp, LED spotlight, and BSDS camera on your factory mirror. The add-on mirror will not obstruct the factory mirror face, and they will not interfere with adjustments to your factory mirror.

2018 Ford F-150

I'm so impressed at the quality of these mirrors (I bought both driver and passenger sides) especially at such a reasonable cost. Very simple but effective solution for me. It took about 3 minutes to install these as they fit and slide right over my existing mirrors. They were designed precisely for my vehicle so don't interfere with my power adjustments or signal lights. I'm new at pulling a large Camping trailer and needed to find something to get my field of view around both sides. Factory mirrors and such were too expensive for my budget and I don't believe they would help anymore than these.



When I first received these extension mirrors I questioned how well they would perform. Ive been more than satisfied. They are easy to install and just as easy to remove when not needed. They extend my mirrors just far enough to see behind my 26 foot trailer. They are a little tough to get adjusted to where you need them but once set, they stay put.


The product works well but it is a little confusing looking between the original rear view mirror and the extended mirror. Don't know if that is an issue with the extended mirror.


Works pretty well. Never fell off - would like a bigger mirror and have it be more easily adjustable. It took a lot of force to change the angle of the mirror - making micro adjustments not really possible.


It fits just fine on the factory mirrors. However the extra mirror is not adjustable to accommodate my needs to see what I need to see behind me. I’m a very short person so my line of sight is very limited to my seat ?? position in my truck ?? Why would you not make a mirror that is not adjustable and in a fixed position?

2015 Ford F-150

The mirrors help me tow our Lance trailer safely. The adjustable mirrors benefited with a touch of dry lubricant
on the joint inside the housing. Emily at etrailer was very helpful!

2020 Ford F-150

Very fast delivery.



Not good. impossible to adjust. If not carefully installed they will fly off.

@Cliff I prefer the K-Source # KS81850 Snap & Zap, it's a friction fit to the factory mirror, and no additional hardware is needed. They fit very snugly, and once they're snapped into place, they will not fall off.


They fit perfect. Haven't towed with them yet but can already tell I'll be able to see my camper much better when making turns and backing up.


Works like it should

2017 Ford F-150

Just got my mirror's today Just when you said they would be here. Won't put them on for a couple of months when we start camping. Took one out of the box. They look great and should work just fine. Great service. Very happy


They worked great for 1200 miles until one came lose and fell off! Needless to say the trailer finished it off. The plastic set screws must come lose because I tightened them up good

2016 Ford F-150

Perfect fit and they look good on truck


Never buy from etailer, return policy is excessive, unfair and not as good as others in the RV world. Mirrors are. I better than stock F-150 Mirrors. They cost $[XX] bucks each. Etailer takes $[XX]. off of the $[XX] it was easier to just throw them away.

Ford F-150

Fit my F-150 great. Worked well towing my camper

2016 Ford F-150

Prior to finding CIPA mirrors, I’d tried at least 4 types of mirrors. None worked, as I needed. Wobbles & wiggles blurred everything, wiggles loose, or just didn’t work.

CIPA designed a great system. However, one had loosened & fell off. Never thought I’d find JUST ONE replacement, but pulled thru. Who woulda thunk?

Thanks for your quick delivery & follow up with all the info I needed to make this a great purchase.

2016 Ford F-150

Fits great easy to install


Does not fit my 2021 honda ridgeline.enlosed paper work indicates a Ford f150.

I will have our Customer Service team reach out to you. This mirror fits the 2015 - 2020 Ford 150. The mirrors that will fit a 2021 Honda Ridgeline is part # KS3990.

2018 Ford F-150

Great fit and look for my 2018 F-150, they are as close to factory style and design that I have seen. They slip in place easily and also come off without any problem. I ordered the left and right mirrors separately because they cost less than the pair on the website.


If I could have found the set on your site I would have saved $XX>

2020 Ford F-150

Putting on is a peace of cake. Should have ordered the set,but I can wait for passenger side to come.


Add on towing mirrors are often flimsy and subject to vibration.
Some propeller head(engineer), somewhere, really did a great job!
The design is simple and the new mirror's grip,
on the foundation mirror, is firm. Bravo!


Just got a pair for my 2018 Ford Raptor. Fits like a glove! Have not gone done the highway yet, but seems very secure because of the formed fit. Looks factory too. This should really help with the blind spots while towing my camper.

Bob G.


Just used them the other day and still like new. If something happened to them, I would purchase again without hesitation.


Looks so much better than the mirrors with the arms and straps. It adds to the field of view and adds a safety factor but the Ford stock mirrors provide an adequate view on a 10’ wide trailer These allow puddle and turn signal lights to work as designed. Oddly, it’s cheaper to purchase separately vs. as a set.


Worked as advertised.


Great mirrors, they look like original equipment. I use these mirrors to tow our 30’ camper which we use at least 10 times a year. We also did a trip out west which included driving 6,800 miles. Love these mirrors.


The slide on mirrors worked very well and save me a bunch of money vs. replacing the OEM mirrors.

  • Are the CIPA Towing Mirrors Removable After They've Been Installed
    Yes. The CIPA # CM11551 is a slip on towing mirror that can be removed and re-installed as necessary. A lot of folks don't want the extended mirrors on when they don't need them, so all you would need to do is loosen the knob on the back and slide them off when you're done with your towing trip. This is a single driver's side mirror and is designed to fit on a variety of Ford trucks. If you've got a Chevy Silverado like was indicated in your vehicle information, the correct slip on mirrors...

Another reason I recommend these is that they pivot 360 degrees to give you the view you need at all times.
