Review of Longview Custom Towing Mirrors LVT-1800


Today we're going to be taking a look at part number LVT-1800. These are the Longview Custom Towing Mirrors with the slip-on design You're going to get both the driver and passenger side mirrors. They are a custom fit design and they're going to fit certain years and models of the Chevrolet Silverados and GMC Sierras. The towing mirrors are easily going to slip over your factory side view mirrors. These are going to help extend your lines of sight. It's going to give you a better view of the road in your trailer or camper and it's gong to let you safely and easily change lanes, pass and park while towing. Here on the mirror face it's going to feature a first-surface chrome plating.

That's really going to help minimize the amount of distortion that we experience as well as reduce the amount of glare. It's going to feature a manually adjustable mirror face. This is going to let you customize your view, simply pressing on the corners, on the edge and you can really change the angle that you need to best fit your particular towing application. If we take a look at the mirror face, measuring this direction is going to give us a measurement of about 5 1/2 inches. Measuring this direction, it's going to give us a measurement of about 4 1/2 inches. It's a really good sized mirror face.

The length of each slip-on mirror; they're going to be identical but you're one for the passenger and one for the driver side, but the overall length is going to measure about 19 1/2 inches. Now your factory mirror is going to fit into this area right here. If we take a measurement from this inner edge to the end of the slip-on mirror, that's going to add about 7 inches to the length of our factory mirror. It has a really nice aerodynamic shape, so it's going to prevent vibration as well as reduce the amount of wind noise that we experience. If you're on the backside it's going to have a really nice design. Another thing to mention is that these are not going to interfere with the functions of your factory mirror when you have these installed.

You're still going to be able to adjust your mirror face as need on your factory mirror and you can still fold it in towards your vehicle even with the longveiw mirrors installed on your factory mirrors. The custom design is going to provide a perfect fit. It's going to fit nice and tight as well as secure to your vehicle. It's going to featuring some really nice paddings here. You're going to have a foam block right here, a felt pad right here and then another foam block right here. All these foam pads and the felt pad, this is going to add padding to the inside of the housing which means that they're not going to scratch or mark your factory mirrors when they are installed.

It's a quick tool-free installation. Very simple, three easy steps. Slide the towing mirror over your factory mirror. Then you're going to have this piece right here. This is what we call a hook arm. This is going to hook around the inside edge of your factory mirror. The threaded portion is going to come out through this hole here in the back and you're simply just going to tighten it with the knob. That's going to tighten the towing mirror in place on your factory mirror. Very simple installation. The housing on the mirrors as well as the hardware is going to be made out of a durable ABS plastic construction. Very strong and durable. You're not going to have to worry about any type of corrosion or anything happening. Again, you are going to get the driver and passenger side mirrors and these are made in the USA. That's going to do it for our review of part number LVT-1800. These are the Longview Custom Towing Mirrors and you're going to get both the driver and passenger side. .
