Anyone use clip on towing mirrors?

    I pull a 17' toy hauler that we use as a camper and the clip on mirrors that were made for my previous F-150 worked great. The did not vibrate to where I could not see and they were also a lot cheaper than regular full time tow mirrors. I am thinking about getting a set for my Tundra and I am wondering how they work

    I bought the Fit System 81300 for my '21 with the stock A mirrors. They fit but require a small foam wedge place between the mirror and plastic body to dampen the vibrations. The viewing area is just large enough to be able to see with both eyes. My TT body is 7' 7" and add to that another 3-4" for the awning frame. I find them useful along with a rear view camera. Would I buy them again? Yes. Would I be able to tow safely and comfortably without them? Probably yes.

    If you read the instructions they tell you that you can receive a free gift. I did and they sent a spare camera. That was nice but then I got an email telling me that if I purchased another one of their products and left a review they would reimburse my Paypal account the amount of the purchase. This smelled like two day dead carp to me so I just ignored their offer.
    I do like the system I purchased but it isn't a direct fit in the Furrion housing. Simply tweaking their bracket made it work. It's set for wide angle which eliminates the ability to identify the vehicle behind you but who cares if it's a Yaris or Prius, it's a vehicle.

    We're using the stock mirrors with a rear camera to pull an 8' wide travel trailer. If a car is passing us we can see them in the camera and the mirrors for quite some time, so I feel we're pretty well covered.
    We use the stock mirrors with a camera, and that covers the rear and both lanes well. But I'd still like to see further back with just the mirrors. I'll check those out. Thx.

    We bought the Yakry rear camera, and they did the free gift as well. I chose the 2nd camera too. Then they asked if I'd do a review, so, OK. I had nothing negative to say. The camera worked well and was easy to install. I didn't get the "dead carp" offer, though. I would have reacted like you did. I made a trailer hitch camera out of the second one for my wife to help here get the ball lined up well under the trailer hitch. :)
