Tow mirrors for 2007 Expedition

Any know of any tow mirrors (mirror extentions) that will fit the 2007's? I think I read that the mirrors are unique to the Expeditions and not the same as the F150's. I'd prefer something fitted rather then a loosely fitting virbration prone universal sytle. I need something in a couple of days, so if there's nothing specific, I'll need recommendations for 'universal tow mirrors'.

Thumbs down

I ended up buying the CIPA Universal mirrors about 6 months ago, and I really hate them!
The straps vibrate really bad in a cross-wind and sometimes just driving straight. Also, no matter how much I tighten the straps and adjust the feet, the mirrors still sag down a lot. I also think the mirror surface is rather small.
I'm not sure what to recommend, but I'd recommend someone try something else.

I looked for a long time too. There are no custom fit mirrors yet. I finally chose these from my local RV dealer for about $20 each.

They are made in Italy by GS Plastics and are pretty good compared to the Cipa universal.

The particular ones that I got have a 4" extension arm attached to the two brackets that are clamped to the mirror housing. They fit very tightly. However the 4" extension arm that moves it out farther (necessary in my opinion) makes the mirrors a little prone to vibration.

To fix that, once I fitted the mirrors, I added a support brace made out of 3/4"x1/8" thk aluminum strap glued to the extension arm and one of the brackets. That did the trick. Here is a photo: http://www2.snapfish.com/share/p=313...andOid=1000131

While the mirrors are different that the 150, they look like they mount the same. You may want to make a trip by the dealer and and check on that and see if the 08 TT mirrors will fit.

For the weekends I need towing mirrors I strap on a pair of McKesh mirrors set 6" wider on both sides than my trailer. Mirrors fit? Trailer will fit.
