Exterior towing mirrors

Hi everyone! For those who have been using your RAV to tow a camper trailer, have you found a good source for external mirrors to supplement the factory units? We just picked up a lightweight 8í pop up, but Iím not happy with the rearward visibility. Any thoughts?

And please, this is not a towing capacity thread. Itís within my limit, thanks

I was using these: https://www.amazon.com/CIPA-11950-Un...%2C214&sr=8-22
But they vibrate to much and I had to use duck tape on the rubber straps to keep them on.

I purchased these: https://www.amazon.com/Dometic-DM-28...r=8-1-fkmrnull
But never used them. If your in my area, stop by and pick them up, they are yours for free.

And don’t forget to join http://www.popupportal.com. A wealth of info for pop up camper owners.
