Hey jeffpa,

I just ran out and quickly measured a towing mirror on my 2011 Outdoorsman.

Because of the different shapes & angles, if I measure from the top of the
mirror (not extended) to the door frame metal, it is approx. 7.5 inches. Measuring from the bottom of the mirror to the door glass, it is approx. 6 inches.

Now, if I measure from the door frame to the outermost point of the unextended mirror (this is measuring across at the middle of the mirror from top to bottom), it is approx. 18.5 inches. If I now extend the mirror and measure from door frame to the outermost point, it is approx. 22.5 inches.

My previous 2003 Ram 4x4 had regular mirrors. I really noticed how wide these towing mirrors are on my 2011. Takes a little getting used to plus you really have to
be careful when parking in your garage. These trailer mirrors are great for towing though!!

Good luck.
