I have had the Camec version for about 12 months - they seem pretty good. I compared them side by side at a show at the time of purchase - virtually identical but Camec were half the price

Depends on your vehicle and what you are towing. I personally, would'nt go past these, about $180.00 a pair if you shop around. Fully width adjustable, and put up or down in about 10 secs once set up. But then again, each to their own. That's MHO.

I think my cost estimate is over inflated. Meant to say $100.00 a pair.

wollyw,

have a good look at the Aussie Truck Mirrors before you hand over your money.

The set I bought had conCAVE mirrors, ie, they made the objects in the mirror tall and skinny and had a narrow field of vision. I've never seen mirrors like it. They sit in a box in the shed now.

My next set will probably be ORA brand.

I'm glad I ain't too scared to be lazy

Aussie Truck was the popular recommendation when I went to buy mirrors almost a year ago but they scratched the windows on my LC200, so not sure how they perform or the copy versions and they both looked exactly the same to me.

So now I am with Gone Bush on this. I bought the Ora mirrors that clamp around the wing mirrors. You can tighten them so they will not come off.. The only issue I had...and it was scary, sometimes the wind from an oncoming truck would slam the drivers side mirrors in. Fixed than with Ora stabiliser arm which has a flat magnet attachment on the lower end of the arm (plastic coated)

If you hold them out whilst winding the window up they dont rub.
Check that the little antirub buffers on the brackets where they butt up to the glass hasnt come off.
The action of tightening them before winding the window pushes them inward causing them to do that.
