    I have a '17 big horn with black power folding, heated, puddle lamps, turn signals, and auto dimming mirrors. Is there an equivalent in a towing mirror? I have a set of cheap add ons for pulling the camper, but I hate them.

    thanks

    Trail Ridge makes a plug and play OEM style tow mirrors that will have all the features (power fold, heated, puddle, etc) your current mirrors have with the exception of auto-dimming.

    I called 2 dealers and those mirrors without auto dimming were $495 for the set from either dealer. Not sure how much more for the auto dimming ones. The problem was they were back-ordered until about mid-November. I didn't ask about the auto-dim but I'd say they are probably back-ordered too. There were 10 dealers that had mine in stock but the closest was about 200 miles away. I still haven't bought them. The Trail Ridge from 1A were $100 cheaper. I have heard good things about them.

    Back to the OEM, the dealer told me if you bought the pieces individually it would be about $1000. He said to make sure I got the kit with everything in it ($495). From what I understand there is a support bracket that is about $40 that does not come with the Trail Ridge mirrors. I think they do come with the OEM kit though. If so then the OEM's would only be about $60 more than the aftermarket.

    Thanks. I've been looking at Trail Ridge lately, but they seem to be out of stock for my configuration

    Well son ordered the Trail Ridge mirrors yesterday from 1A Auto. He should have them in next week. Problem is he has no trailer hitch now (or his is all bent up) cause he got rear-ended Monday morning. He may have to buy an aftermarket hitch out of his pocket and install it next week to tow his camper home or to the next site
