    Wondering what options are out there for custom tow mirrors to replace factory mirrors.

    Not sure about replacement mirrors, but our clamp on are very secure. And this way we don't have mirrors sticking out far when not pulling our trailer.

    Where you camping there? Looks nice, somewhat to what we find up here in Ontario :D

    Also, OP as for mirrors, the one NY Taco have would be best. I have a single strap system, and after a few hours they sag and your screwed...A buddy of mine picked up something similar to the dual lock points that NY Taco have, and did a 3,000km trip, never had to re-adjust.

    Yes we were camping. Many of our NY campgrounds look like this, unfortunately there are some that are just an open field. I try to Google Earth the campgrounds before booking to try to find the shaded sites.

    Minimal vibration, definitely not as solid as the factory mirrors, but very useable.

    Don't get the Reese Cequent strap ons- the straps disintegrate in a couple of weeks = lost mirror = big problems

    1a auto has towing mirrors for 2nd and 3rd gen tacos. Priced $160 to $304. They are relatively easy to install one you have watched a video. Finding a video for 3rd gen was a pain. Will try to post pictures later.
