    Anyone have suggestions for towing mirrors or extenders for the X?

    Thanks!

    Here is the Dometic mirror we use. We bought it at Geo. Sutton RV in Eugene, OR. You can see it in action on my avatar photo.

    Hey Jim,

    Finally received a set. They seem well made. Do you find them fiddly to put on and aim every time, or does it get faster?

    It gets faster with a little practice. I feel confident about back vision when pulling the trailer with them.

    I don't know about those, but through my idiocy I can confirm the Dometic ones do not strike the car when mounted on top of the mirror.

    I can vouch for Jim's mirrors. They show no wear or issues on the X.
    Completely stable & I can see Jim put a lot of miles on his X since our visit in April ;-) -TechVP
