Default I bought some new tow mirrors today!

Well I got some tow mirrors today for $10.00 at the Webster Auto Swap... Saw them laying on the ground next to a bunch of other stuff so I asked him what they came off of, he said a chevy Even though they looked like they would fit YabbaDoo I walked away, then I look over see a 99 Ram 3500 sitting on the next isle over soooooo, I ask the owner of the truck if I could use his mirrors to see if the tow mirrors would work and he said yes I walkeed back to the guy who had the mirrors and asked if I could take one over and see if it would fit... They may not be pretty but they fit well and for $10.00 I couldnt go wrong!!! I have to go teach a class here in a few min so I will see how well they hold still and I will update when I get home I also bought a floding camp table like I used to have when I was a kid $3.00

They don't really look that bad in the pictures. The main thing is the safety side of towing. I like to be able to look down both sides of my trailer. I think you did OK!

They seem to be pretty solid! Better than my old electric extendable mirrors. I need to see if I can get some of the shake out of them.

Not bad at all. Have you looked at the price of tow mirrors lately? Heck, I bought the cheap ones on Ebay and they were 200.00. For ten bucks, I'd say you did pretty good. You can't buy stick on spot mirrors for that.
