I’m looking for mirrors to extend from the car since I can’t see as much with the hybrid as I could with the pup. e-trailer only ha mirrors for the drivers side. Do people only do the drivers side, or do they usually put a mirror on the passenger side also?

Thanks!

When we bought the CIPA Slide on mirrors, they came as a pair. No matter what mirrors you decide on, you will want them for both sides.
It took me 3 sets of mirrors until I found something that I liked. The CIPA did the trick for almost 10 yrs, until we got a new truck. They worked really well for both my husband & me.

Yes. If you go on etrailer, there is also a fit guide, since the mirrors fit on specific brand & yrs of vehicles.

I put a universal CIPA strap on mirror on the drivers side and a little stick on circular mirror on to the passenger side and that worked out really well for me

Thanks everyone for your suggestions. I couldn’t find anything specific for my vehicle so I ended up just taking a chance and trusting Amazon reviews. I must say I’m very happy with the mirrors I got. They clip on easily and the strap sort of ratchets on so I don’t have to worry about pulling. I can get them on in about 2 minutes and the vibration isn’t too bad. I don’t have to wear garden gloves to pull them tight, and they don’t feel like they’re going to fall off. I’m pleased!

Does anyone have any knowledge or experience with CIPA extended mirrors?  I have a ford explorer 2014 and I am looking at model CM11980.

I went from  pop up to a hybrid.
