Mirrors, Mirrors...

Need a bit of assistance, please. Own a 2018 Keystone Hideout (21 footer). My tow vehicle is a 2007 Toyota FJ Cruiser. No issue with the tow; the FJ handles the weight easily. The problem I am having is that the FJ has VERY stubby mirrors that do not extend beyond the sides of the camper. So I have two huge "blind spots" that make me VERY wary of towing the camper. Does anyone on the Forum know of an accessory mirror set that I can clamp to the doors of the FJ and see what is going on around me? The "universal" applications that attach to the stock mirrors do not work - there is nowhere to clamp them down to without having them fall off with the first good bump. This is why I am looking for something that will clamp to the door frame - aesthetics is trumped by safety.

TY for any assistance y'all might offer!

My BIL has a 2010 FJ and he has slip on mirror extenders. They are still relatively small and don't extend out all that much but he has a very small camper. I could ask him whatbrand they are if you don't mind that they're ugly and small.

That would be greatly appreciated! Ugly and small is irrelevant - I need to see what is going on around me!

This is his 1st set, brand name is K-Source but they lost one on the highway. I'm not sure they're attached properly though. https://www.canadiantire.ca/en/pdp/k...0001p.html#srp

2nd set holds better but apparently creates humungous wind noise.

I'd recommend looking for entire mirror replacement for better tow mirrors. SUV stuff might be hard to find. This is the type I mean, these are for Toyota pickups and large SUV. https://www.canadiantire.ca/en/pdp/k...-0365284p.html
