Here are towing/camper mirrors that came stock on some trucks. You can flip them around and turn over to give more length. Some don't like the look but they give pretty nice visibility. Not sure if they are made anymore but plenty of people get rid of them so there are likely used ones out there.

I really like these OEM door mounted mirrors.
I picked up a set nearby for 60$ but still haven’t located the covers/fill panel where others mount up (he tossed his). so if you go this route make sure you get those with the mirrors.

@Supercharged111 a man of quality

I have the K2XX mirrors on my K2500, and I plan to put them on my K3500 as well. I paid a little extra for Boost Auto mirrors; and while the glass shaking was kind of a disappointment, I've somewhat remedied the shake by using wheel weights on the back of the glass.

I'm struggling with pulling the trigger on some of these. I really want them, but damn they're proud of em!

I originally bought a set of Ebay mirrors and attempted to wire them up for dual-function lights with the Boost Auto kit.
Failed at that, so in my mind it was worth it to get them 100% ready to wire in and function.

I really liked the Trail Ridge mirrors from 1A Auto that I had on my 98 and my 97 a while back. I'm more partial to the stock 95-up plastic mirrors, but these tow mirrors are the only brand I'd ever buy.

So how difficult is it to remove the turn signal lenses from the cheapo mirrors? I can get the K2xx trail ridge ones for $170 and the only thing I don't like is the amber led's. I like the dual function lights boost offers, but I don't like it enough to spend another $250...

Not very difficult, there's a write up somewhere on the forum on how to disassemble the Ebay mirrors

I had the stainless towing mirrors.... I found the original attachment was a bit weak for the added length/ leverage. The wind pushing the mirrors broke some of the bolts.

I'm partial to these mirrors. They're large enough for towing, but not too obnoxiously large to daily.

I have those on my K2500 and they are the worst to tow. Can't see s**t behind anything that's bigger than a small trailer.

We bought this camper trailer this fall 35ft long. all i could see was the front. anything on the sides was invisible between 30 feet from it.
