Towing is something that must be done carefully and safely.  Tow mirrors increase your ability to see your trailer and surroundings.  See how to install aftermarket tow mirrors on your Ford 150.  It’s easy.  


My shop is completely mobile.  This allows me to do everything from building you a Murphy Bed to a full remodel anywhere within our service area.  I’ve dubbed this “The Dailey Portable Shop.”  This is the fancy name for my 6×12 Cargo Trailer that I have meticulously organized and optimized to serve as my shop.

Everything in its place and a place for everything

Pulling this trailer is not without its downsides.  The increased traffic in College Station paired with all the road construction has made driving through town stressful.  Adding a trailer with into this equation doubles the stress.  The Dailey Portable Shop is backed into the driveway of most homes so that we can set up shop in the garage.

So how can I see everything I need to see to do all this safely?

Enter Aftermarket Tow Mirrors

My primary concern in adding tow mirrors is to increase my visibility while backing my trailer.  I have small children.  It honestly terrifies me that one of them may run behind my trailer while I’m backing it in and I not see them.  (Obviously, we try to teach them safety and keep them in a safe space while this is happening but…they’re children who don’t recognize and process the danger.  They’re just excited to hear daddy’s truck and want to run out to see me).  Tow Mirrors have dramatically increased my visibility.

I did a lot of research to find an affordable, quality aftermarket tow mirror that would fit my 2014 Ford F-150.  The reviews online pointed me to 1A Auto, and these Trail Ridge Tow Mirrors for only $173.00.  If you’ve looked for Ford OEM Mirrors you’ll know this is a much better deal.  These mirrors will fit 2007-2014 Ford F-150s but be sure to double check before ordering.
