Getting back into RV'ing after a 3 year hiatus and have a different TV than before. Has anyone found a good strap on mirror for the F-150 (2017 Lariat) that seems to work better than the others.

I know it's subjective, but since you can't really go any place and "try them on like a pair of shoes..." I wanted to see what some of you have used and liked.

Muchos thanks!

I used the Chevrolet version of these on my now sold 2015 Tahoe. Worked well

In my experience, none of the add on mirrors work very well. I'd look at spending the $ and adding the mirrors that came on the F150 with the towing package.

Do yourself a favor and spend the big bucks for the factory towing mirrors.

Unfortunately if you want Ford tow mirrors, you have to order them as a separate option on a half ton truck. My towing package didn’t have them, Max Tow for my2019 didn’t have them. My aftermarket Tow Mirror factory copies gained me heat and turn signal for only $230. When ordering you need to confirm whether yours are 22 or 8 pin models.

I was happy with the CIPA 'clamp' on mirrors I used on my 97 F150. They slid over the oem mirror and had a screw on the back that held it to the truck mirror pretty tight and worked very well.

I do have the big tow mirrors on my 13 MaxTow optioned F150 and they are great too..

Good luck! Mitch

I am happy with the Grand Aero 3 mirrors. They extend farther than the CIPA custom fit and K-Source custom fit I used before.

CIPA here. Bought mine when I bought my truck (2005) and they still work fine today.

I had CIPAs on my F150. The new F250 has power folding and extending mirrors.
