The custom towing mirrors available for your 2011 Chevrolet Silverado are the Longview Custom Towing Mirrors-Pair, part # CTM1600 and the CIPA Custom Towing Mirror-Driver Side, part # 10901 and CIPA Custom Towing Mirror-Passenger Side, part # 10902.

Both of these brands are very similar. They will both vibrate a little since they are attached to the factory mirrors but it is not enough to cause any problems or impair the vision in the mirror. We have gotten good reviews on both of these mirrors.

The difference in the size of the mirrors is the Longview mirror measures 5-1/2 inches wide x 4-3/8 inches tall. The CIPA mirror measures 4-1/8 inches wide x 5-1/2 inches tall. The size of the mirrors are about the same, but the difference is the 5-1/2 inch width goes horizontal on the Longview mirror and vertical on the CIPA mirror.

I would recommend the Longview mirrors just because of the mirror being positioned longer horizontally and the installation is very simple. I am including a link to a video review on the Longview mirror.
