We used the Grand Aero Milenco mirrors in our last road trip covering about 3,000 kms and comparing to the times we towed and not using them I much prefer towing with the mirrors. Without I can see behind the 19 but not as well as with the mirrors where I see vehicles following me much better. Thanks to those who recommended these. They do vibrate a bit but not as much as the others from what I gather. I have had a few folks at campsites ask who makes them - one guy at a stop light while towing also asked.

Towing Mirrors for Tacoma

After reading several comments on towing mirrors, we found a link to 1AAuto.com. Easily navigated the website to find exact replacement mirrors for our 2005 Tacoma. Mirrors arrived in four days from Mass to rural Oregon, which is FAST given the current storms on the east Coast. It took about 40 minutes to install both mirrors. I found the mirrors not as rock steady as the smaller stock mirrors in the normal position but perfectly useable at highway speeds. With the mirrors extended to the trailering position they were a bit more jittery, but this is expected and still stellar in view.
The mirrors are a bit spendy at $240, but the shipping is free.
Here are some pictures of the passenger side mirror:

For those considering the Grand Aero, we found that Costco stores here in the States don't carry them; however, Costco Canada does. We ordered ours on line and had them shipped to the Escape factory (you can buy on line but it has to be for a Canadian shipment). Thus, we'll have them when we pick up in March.

Had a 30min freeway run with the Fit System mirrors and had no issues with them. Two thumbs up.

Would anyone know if this particular replacement mirror has the built-in motorized adjustment function similar to stock mirrors?

Thanks,
Alan
