What tow mirrors do you use?

I am using CIPA Universal Towing Mirror 1196 with a few adjustments they work. I use them on driver and passenger sides.

@Pondhopper- Thanks for the pictures. Would have liked a couple shots from the driver's seat at the left and right mirrors to see the view. Can you see vehicles at all behind the camper?

Thanks for the pics. If I ever decided to get a larger trailer I will need a pair. Right now my trailer is narrower than my TH so I don't need them.

When I designed mine, I had that in mind and it works well. No extra mirrors needed.

I have a pair of universal CIPA RV mirrors. They work but the mounting clips restrict movement of the factory mirror glass. A quick internet search led me to JPR Products aero Milenco RV mirrors. They look like the real deal but at over 130 dollars U.S. I don't want to buy on spec. Has anyone tried them and if so what is your opinion?

I cheaped out and got the ones from Canadian Tire.

They work really well and I can see around the trailer (7.5' wide Rockwood Mini-Lite). We towed from Edmonton all the way back up to the Yukon without any visibility issues at all.

Re Arctic Lynn, those are the exact ones I got from Peavey Mart. My problem with them are that the clips prevent adjustment of the factory mirrors. They do seem to work Ok but just not ideal.

Yea we noticed that too but as most of our camping will be done in the Yukon, maximum 400 miles if we go to Dawson, it's not a real big deal. Plus, all of our highways here are 2 lane so it's not like we'll be changing lanes all the time like down south. We found those mirrors to safe without spending a chunk of change on even more accessories. Plus, I don't think we've moved the factory mirrors since we first adjusted them back in September. Both hubby and I have the seat and mirrors in the same place.
