I did a few searches and didn't find any results.

I am needing to purchase clip on mirror extensions for towing a trailer. For out on the country roads, I'm fine with cutting to the left to see behind the trailer, but I don't really want to do that on the highways.

Anybody use any mirrors that seem to fit really well?

Thanks!

The reason I ask, I used some one time that were kind of difficult to get on and I wasn't sure how well they would stay on at highway speeds or if they would slip off the curved surface.

The frame of plastic sits clipped on mirror side the two straps wrap around the back of mirror securing firmly in place.
The type below is what I used only the twin mirror was not available when I bought mine.
The strap condition is important so be wary of older ones.
Those that clamp into mirror frame are more likely to cost you large if mirror takes a knock better to have a disposable extender.

The inside strap will not slip over bow of casing and outside stops mirror blowing back or vibrating .
I regularly towed at 60mph hit 70 mph on occasions to clear slow moving traffic. used same mirrors on several cars never a problem, only with vans with larger mirrors vibration never a problem

I bought the Grand Aero Towing Mirrors from milenco at Costco.
Best towing mirrors I ever had, very stable even at highway speed.
