Hi everyone, we are starting to look into differant ideas for our next RV, this question concerns one direction we might go.

I have an issue where my garage opening is only 94" Toyota lists the SR5 width without the mirrors at 79.9"

The total width on my Mckesh towing mirrors (for my tacoma) for me to see square down the sides on my 8' wide Jayco is 103" Now that said I could probably cut that down an inch or two.

The SR5 lists "tow mirrors" under their specs. I am almost certain the SR5 tow mirrors width will exceed my garage door opening.

Anyone have any experience with after market powered tow mirrors that can be retracted from inside the cab that would be under 94"?
(maybe toyota service can install?)

Toyota sales was no help at all

Thanks for your replies
Mike

Take a tape measure to the Toyota dealer and roll down the windows and measure. Do Tundra mirrors fold in?

I've not seen Tundra mirrors that are power retracted. They do retract or fold inward manually I believe, even the factory towing mirrors.

There was only 1 tundra at the dealer, truck had no tow mirrors and it measured wider than my garage door opening.

I'm hoping to come across anyone who has experience with powered tow mirrors that retract on Tundras

I am a little confused. You talk about Tundra and Tacoma. You state Tundra is too wide for your garage. Are you asking about putting Tundra mirrors on Tacoma? Are you considering buying a Tundra? Both Tundra and Tacoma have fold in mirrors. These mirrors are power mirrors in that they can be adjusted within the housing. You may be able to purchase after market power extending mirrors.

I am looking for a powered retracting tow mirror that can be installed by Toyota service for a NEW SR5 Tundra. My garage doors are only 94"... not wide enough for a Tundra with tow mirrors. Just wondering about the reliability or if anyone has any experience with the powered mirrors.

It is not practical for me to manualy fold in the towing mirrors every time I park in my garage.


This video shows how the mirrors work. Sorry for the confusion on this
