    Just picked up my 8.5ft x 20ft enclosed trailer and quickly found out that I need to get some tow mirrors asap! Need input! 2012 non-heated, no puddle light if that makes a difference.

    $59.60, I have them and they work great for when I tow my Camaro. Easy to take on and off, no vibration or scratching of paint and they came with a bag to store them in when not in use.

    The cheaper cost is forgotten long after the bitterness of lower quality nock off mirrors sets in.

    I have the same for my truck. I put them on only when I tow. Little vibration, not perfect, but I can see down the sides of my toyhauler easily at most speeds. Makes lane switches with the trailer much safer.

    Did you tighten the mirror screw? I did on mine and no vibration.

    That's the same ones I have/posted. They worked great for me the few time I use them. If you tighten the screw the vibration issue is solved.

    There is no screw on this model that I can find. These snap on and over the existing allowing the power fold to work as well as the puddle light. The mirror is in ball and socket with no adjustment that I have found.
