I'm with Jon on both the preference and not extending mine.
Though I won't say they are "necessary" I surely do enjoy the view the towing mirrors provide even with my very narrow Casita. The full-width lower convex mirror is especially appreciated.
Not an option when I bought my '05F150 (first year of the body-style), I added the bolt-on-swap Ford OEM parts when they were made available 1 year after I purchased the truck. They're basically the same as the current offering (maybe a bit more square at the top), I'd
go for 'em no question if equipping a new F150 for towing anything
BTW, I recall remarking how the towing mirrors reduced
wind-noise back when I made the change from the standard mirrors (!?!)
