Best 2015 Chevrolet Silverado1500 Towing Mirror Options


Speaker 1: Today, we're going to be taking a look at the best towing mirror options for your 2015 Chevrolet Silverado 1500. Whenever you're towing a trailer, if you're using your factory mirror, we can see our trailer, but whenever we go to change lanes or want to look behind us, we may have to stick our head out the window or really turn around to see what's going on, making it unsafe to go down the road while our towing mirrors are going to give us a wider field of view, making it a lot safer and a lot easier to get down the road.There's three basic types of towing mirrors, and they're each going to have their own individual benefits. So let's take a closer look. So we're going to have a universal style towing mirror, a custom-fit towing mirror and a full replacement style towing mirror.First, we have our universal style mirror, which is going to be great for occasional use. Most of them are simply just going to strap onto our existing mirror using some rubber straps. Now, there are some other styles that use a clamp that we can clamp on to our mirror, but it is a universal style, which means that if you tow with a lot of different vehicles in your family, chances are it might fit that as well.

Now while this is going to serve the purpose - we're going to be able to have a wider field of view and see what's going on behind our truck - it isn't exactly going to match our truck. It is just going to be strapped on to our mirror. So aesthetically, it's not going to look the best, but it is going to get the job down. The other downside is that we're going to have to carry it with us, put it on and take it off each time that we tow.The next step up is going to be our custom-fit towing mirror. Now, this is going to be great for occasional to moderate use because it is going to have a lot more of a snug fit and fit more securely around our factory mirror because it is made specifically for our truck.

And on the back, you can see that it is going to have a nice seamless look to it, so it's going to blend in with our factory mirror nicely and have more of a pleasing look and not be so obvious that we have an extra piece on our truck.Now, again, the downside to it is that it is going to be an extra piece. So we're either going to have to have it in our truck or leave it on our truck every time we go to tow. Now, like the universal mirror, our custom-fit one also is going to have manual adjustments. So we're either going to have to reach out the window and make the adjustments before we go or on the passenger side, adjust the mirror and then check it when we get into the driver's seat. Now, most of our custom-fit towing mirrors are just going to snap into place.

However, some of them may require a set screw, but they are extremely easy to install or take off.Finally, we have our full replacement mirror. Now, this is going to be more of a top of the line upgrade whether you tow all the time or you just don't really feel like having to deal with an extra piece every time you go to tow. We have the options on our replacement mirrors to retain all your factory functions like your power mirrors, heated mirrors, even the LED turn signal. Just keep in mind that it's not going to add these feature to your truck, it's just going to retain those functions if you already have them.Now, our replacement mirrors are going to extend out giving us that wider field of view as well as giving us a dual mirror so we'll have a taller field so we'll be able to see our trailer behind our truck. And our replacement mirrors are going to use all the factory mounting points, so we're not going to have to worry about modifying our truck or anything.

It's just going to mount up in the existing location that our mirror already does.So to sum everything up, if you only toward a few times a year and you really don't feel like investing a lot of money into it, our universal mirrors are going to be a great option because they're just going to slip right over our factory mirror, strap on, and chances are they may fit more than one vehicle. Now, if you tow a little bit more frequently and you want more of a streamlined look, our custom-fit towing mirrors are going to be a great option. They're going to slip over the factory mirror giving it a nice sleek look and still be easy to get on and take off. If you tow a lot or if you just don't feel like messing around with having an extra piece with you, our full replacement mirror is going to be the way to go.So if you're looking for an entry-level towing mirror because you don't tow that much, if you tow more frequently and you want more of a streamlined look, or if you tow all the time and don't feel like messing around with any extra pieces, we're going to have an option for you here at etrailer.com.And that'll finish up your look at the best towing mirror options for your Chevrolet Silverado 1500.
