I wanted them too until I found out they aren't power fold.
Strange they don't offer them with power fold

I too prefer if the tow mirrors came with power folding. but it's not a deal breaker for me. For the amount of times I would need to fold them in I can do it manually.

I wanted the tow mirrors but I wanted the power fold more. Wish I could have got both.

If I wasn't going to be doing alot of towing. specially longer trailer. I wouldn't even think twice. but for how many times I will need tow mirrors power fold doesn't mean as much. If it gets to me Ill look at someaftermarket ones. though from doing some research pickings are slim.

I use my mirrors all the time when driving with or without a trailer/camper and therefore ordered the tow mirrors despite not being able to auto fold them. Seems like that would be the mirror you want to be able to fold more so. Maybe the leverage/torque needed to fold the larger mirror is too much for the motor? Or maybe they want to make us frustrated and offer it next year?

Thats exactly what I was thinking. guess will see what the 2014 bring. hopefully if they do they will be interchangeable with 2013.
