I am not sure who you called but I will be happy to help you with slip-on towing mirrors for your 2012 Ford F-150 Super Crew.

For your truck we have the CIPA towing mirrors # CM11800 and Longview mirrors # CTM2300B. The biggest difference between these two sets of mirrors is design and how they install.

The CIPA mirrors cover a larger portion of the stock mirror housing that the Longview mirrors. You could say that this gives the CIPA mirrors more stability. These mirrors stay fixed to the stock mirrors using a wedge between the stock housing and the towing mirror that is tightened using a knob. Take a look at the video I have linked showing installation.

The Longview mirrors don't cover as much of the stock mirror housing. The use a clip that secures to the stock mirror housing and a knob to tighten it down. I have linked a video showing installation of these mirrors as well.
