Tow Mirror Review

I test drove my Escalade today with the tow mirrors on.  Boy have I been spoiled with power mirrors all this time.  It is a lot easier to set the passenger mirror with a friend.  Yes, they are manual (of course), so you need to set them up.  They don't seem to be real glass, but some sort of highly reflective plastic material.  As the saying goes, "you get what you pay for".  These were very cheap.  And as I drove around and looked into them, the vibrations of the mirror were very annoying.  I am not sure why they vibrated so much, because the are a very snug fit.  But they do.  And it annoys me.

For the price I am not going to complain much.  If I were going to tow a lot more often, I probably would get a whole other truck with a tow package and factory installed tow mirrors.  But for the occasional tow, these mirrors are fine.
