Default A1Autoparts Tow Mirrors review/report

Hello, just wanted to give a quick review on my new tow mirrors.

Just purchased a 2013 Hideout 23' trailer and needed to move away from the sport mirrors my truck had and get some extendable towing mirrors. After LOTS of research on the forums and other places online, I came to the conclusion that the A1autoparts mirrors fit the budget and the ticket. So I went out on a limb (knowing everyone says aftermarket mirrors vibrate) and purchased them. They shipped same day and I had them in less than a week.

Install was straight forward and a piece of cake and probably took 20 minutes for both sides.

As far as quality, I'd say these are top notch. Why spend 500 each for OEM when these are identical...seriously. The glass is actually glass and there is NO vibration when they are folded down in the normal position. When extended, there is very SLIGHT movement, but I believe it's because they are extended so far away from the support arm, that it'd be pretty impossible to NOT have a little movement. So, to anyone not ready to take the plunge on these, I tell you from personal experience, go for it. Save yourself some money, purchase these mirrors and be happy.

Pics to follow soon.

Yeah, I just bough these too. I got them off of eBay, and they were $199 shipped for both. These are the power/heated mirrors. There is very small vibrations I noticed in both positions, but nothing serious. Awesome value. And good quality.

@ BigRed, you mentioned you bought the power/heated mirrors on Ebay for $199, do these fold in when you say power? I currently have the trailer tow extended but it's a pain every time I pull into my garage have to always pull the mirrors in before I can enter.
