Blind spot mirror

My 2013 F150 4X4 Lariat didn't come with a factory blind spot mirror on the passenger side like the drivers. I'm constantly pulling some sort of trailer every weekend plus I just like having it so I was thinking of adding an aftermarket one like I have done in the past on previous trucks I've owned. But what I really want is the passengers side to be identical to the drivers. So is it possible to add / install one myself ? If not what would y'all recommend that will look factory installed and adhere to the mirror for a long period of time ?

The ones I've purchased in the past may have lasted a year or so before falling off. Thanks in advance for the help!

I upgraded my original mirrors to these : Genuine Ford DL3Z-17696-BA Trailer Tow Mirror . Bought them off Amazon for $372 for the pair came with installation instructions. really great for towing my travel trailer and my buddies boat. Hope you find something that works.

Here you go. You could probably replace the chrome skull cap or paint it. If you look on amazon, you may be able to find what you are looking for.

The tow mirrors are nice and big but I have a difficult time with the passenger mirror being too small to see the back corner of my trailer when backing it up. I would find the same issue with the little spotter mirror on the passenger side as well.

i I have this for backing in with my travel trailer http://www.asaelectronics.com/wvos43...on-system.html .The camera is hard wired to the tail lights on the trailer . The monitor can be moved to different vehicles. Also you can buy different cameras to mount on other trailers there is a video on Youtube showing how it works.
