I have tried those

Can't see past the trailer

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B001AJH1HK
Can see past the trailer on left side if I mount them very far out. However I think they'd fall off rather sooner than later. Also I can't adjust the on-vehicle mirror because the clips block the mirror. Can't see past the trailer on the right side at all

Now I wonder if these would do the trick?

Does anyone have experience with the 97 to 2003 model F150?

Thanks!

McKesh mirrors will work with almost any vehicle, they donot affect the factory mirrors.

McKesh - expensive but a good product. Does not vibrate and strap does not scratch paint on door.

Perhaps as a supplement...

A wireless / wired cam and a LCD display?

The Mckesh are the only mirrors that we've had that don't vibrate at highway speeds, so you can actually merge/change lanes after glancing in the mirrors. The other types of mirrors vibrated so badly that they were useless except for low speed parking/backing manovers.

We bought the Mckesh mirrors after being frustrated with a few of the other types. We're pretty happy with the mckesh, but the next TV will have factory tow mirrors, no question.

McKesh work on my TT, which is nearly 9 1/2 feet wide (yes I know it is over width, thanks. It is nearly 8 1/2 feet stock, but my wifes handicap elevator adds another foot.)

There are a lot of factory tow mirrors on e-bay. Just go to ebay.com and type "1999 f-150 tow mirrors" in the search bar and you will find them.

Don

E-bay link They are going from $138-$200 with free shipping. I bought a set for a buddies Ram three years ago and he has not had any problems with them.

Currently truck less and trailer less. Sold the 2500 Ram and ordered a 2015 Ram 1500 Laramie Crew Cab SWB 4X4 Eco-diesel. Or as I have been told on here, the slowest & weakest truck on the market

etrailer.com has them;I purchased a set for my 1999 F-250.$224for two and free shipping.I looked on etrailer and it didn't show any for the F-150.I pulled up a pic of the F-150 and compared it too the F-250.It appears the mirrors are the same.You can pull up the mirror and compare it too your current truck mirror.The F-250 mirrors just might work.
