Side Mirrors, heated vs non heated?

Iím replacing my original 6 x10 mirrors on my 1995 Winnebago Warrior(class a) with a larger Rosco M715 system(7x15). One of the options is heated mirrors(+$60 pair) Iím debating on the need for them. I donít have them on any of my vehicles so I donít have a point of reference to decide from. What do you all think?

Heated mirrors keep them clean in moist, foggy conditions and of course during cold weather. It's really up to you, do you drive much in conditions that would benefit from heated glass? If not, save your money. Of course, one accident due to fogged mirrors would wipe out any savings, but it's up to you.

I have heated mirrors on a SUV and it helps remove dew in the morning. Convenient on the passenger side.

Thanks for the replies. DW made the decision for me this evening. She says to get heated mirrors.
