Tow Mirrors for 2008 Expy.

I just recently purchased a new 2008 Expedition EL, Limited and will be towing a 33ft travel trailer. The mirrors on the Expy are the automatic power ones. I check with Ford Parts and they do not have any mirrors or add ons available. Can anyone recommend a product that I can obtain to extend my visability while towing? Thanks for your help.

McKesh strap on mirrors have worked wonderfully for me for several years. Not stylish, not cheap, but work well. You can extend them out far enough to see some of what's behind the trailer.

So far I've used them with two campers and two tow vehicles. I store them inside the trailer when the camper isn't in use.

Thank you very much, Chuck. I will check out those mirrors. I presume I can find them online.

Just click the factory (not mine) photo to go to the McKesh (Hensley) website:



No style points here but they work very well. My set was new seven years ago.

I've the mirrors set 6" wider than the trailer. If the mirrors fit, the trailer will fit!

would the OEM tow mirrors from the F150 work? I have them on my truck and i love them.

Pics:





They also telescope in and out, they are heated, turn sigs and puddle lamp. I got them for 140 per mirror on tasca fords website. Do you guys think they would fit? Does the expy have the same doors as the F150s? These mirrors fit 04 to 09 F150s as a direct bolt on
