CIPA Towing Mirrors - Slide-On Towing Mirror - CIP66VR Review


Michael: Hi there. I'm Michael with etrailer.com. Today, we're going to take a quick look at these custom-fit towing mirrors. These mirrors are going to slide right onto your vehicle's factory mirror. It's going to extend your line of sight so it's going to be easier to keep an eye on your trailer, boat, or camper. Makes it much easier and safer to change lanes, pass other vehicles, or park.

So, just having that extended line of sight, being able to see your trailer, makes sure that your load is staying where you need it to be, it's just going to give you a lot more peace of mind and help with your safety. Now, these are a custom fit. They're going to work for your 2019 and newer GMC Sierra 1500 and the Chevrolet Silverado 1500. We're going to slide right onto the existing mirror there so you're not going to have to worry about replacing your mirror or anything like that.These do come with a wedge that you'll slide into the backside, and then there's a little knob on the back there that you'll tighten down. Once you have the wedge in place, you can see that little circular hole there's going to line up with the inside of that knob so it'll get it nice and secure for you so you're not going to have to worry about it wiggling around or anything like that.

They do include this pad that you'll put on the wedge there to help reduce any contact with your mirror so that you don't have to worry about damaging your original mirror. So, it will hold up well, do a good job for you. Now, one thing I will say about these is that you're probably going to have to remove them to go through a carwash, things like that. So, you are going to have to put them on and take them off.So it's not as convenient as having permanent towing mirrors on your vehicle, but if you're someone who doesn't tow all that frequently, you just want to take your camper out for the weekend or something like that, these are going to be really nice because they're not going to change the look of your vehicle for the longterm, just while you need them. They're there for you.

So, definitely a good option. Nice sturdy material. These are made of an ABS plastic construction so they're going to hold up well. The mirror is adjustable so you can adjust it to whatever angle you need to see for yourself. Now, I have both mirrors here.

These are sold both as a set and individually so if you are wanting them as a set, you can use the middle number that you see on the screen there. And the driver's side and passenger side are also on the screen so if you just need one as a replacement or something along those lines, you can get that as well.Overall, I think these are a really great option. For me personally, I would probably prefer a more permanent option, something that would replace your original factory mirror. I like that stability and not having to worry about taking them off and putting them back on. But, like I said, if you are just a casual hauler, don't do it all that often, these are going to be a great option to extend your line of sight, make you a lot more comfortable and safer while you're on the road. So, that's going to complete our look for today. Again, I'm Michael with etrailer.com. Thanks for watching.
