Benefits of Tow Mirrors 

Tow mirrors are essential to any vehicle that is intended to tow an object regardless if it is a boat, another vehicle, or trailer of any kind. Standard mirrors are only intended to allow you to see outside of the original boundaries of the vehicle you are driving. When you tow a trailer, for example, those boundaries get pushed out and now obstruct your vision. This obstruction requires you to replace your standard mirrors with mirrors designed to give you greater visibility, tow mirrors.

There are many reasons to buy tow mirrors, even if you don’t tow often.

  • Eliminating blind spots
  • Providing greater visibility
  • Offering functionality
  • Increasing safety while turning, switching lanes, and parking

Tow Mirror Options & Features

Before you upgrade to tow mirrors, you should know if you have manual or power mirrors. Towing mirrors come in a variety of styles. Manual towing mirrors can fold and telescope, but beyond that they don’t have much functionality since they lack an electrical connection. In this case, you will need to adjust them by hand rather than a convenient switch. 

If you have manual factory mirrors, you’ll want to upgrade to manual towing mirrors. It's labor intensive to upgrade to power mirrors and not generally worth the hassle.

Power mirrors will connect to a wiring harness in the door. The electrical power gives functionality to features like heat, memory, dimming, power-folding, telescoping, turn signal lighting, and puddle lighting.

Towing Mirror Limitations

If you want to upgrade to tow mirrors, it’s best to stick with the options on your vehicle. Therefore, if you have heat and power-folding on your factory mirrors, you’ll want to upgrade to towing mirrors with the same options for an easy, plug and play install. You can verify the mirror’s compatibility by calling our customer service team at 888-844-3393 to confirm that your year, make, and model is compatible.

If you want to upgrade to say heated mirrors, turn signal, or puddle lights, sometimes you can by installing new wiring and plugging in a switch.

Installing Tow Mirrors

On many trucks, installing new tow mirrors can be simple. For manual mirrors, you may need to remove a sail panel, remove the bolts on the mirror, remove the mirror, and repeat the process to reinstall.

Trucks with power options, you’ll most likely need to remove the door panel to access the connector. With plug and play, depending on the model it can take less than an hour. If you’re installing a switch and wiring, the repair may take more than an hour unless you’re really experienced. In most cases, it’s an easy install that most people can do.
