Bob, did you ever find the mirrors? I tow a 31 ft trailer and found some slip on mirrors that work ok with my 2003 Eddie Bauer Exp. I'll try to find out what brand/modle they are, if you like.
Also, I'm thinking about beefing up my rear suspension to make towing the trailer a bit easier. Have you looked into that at all?

I don't know why Ford would put a heavy duty tow package on an Expedition and not offer towing mirrors... CRAZY!!

They just don't make any mirrors for this year...stupid. I found if i turned the mirrors way in i can use the outside inch or 2 to see down the lenght of the trailer but lose all vision to the side.

I have a 2006 Expedition and have looked everywhere for towing mirrors... What's the deal? Has anyone found anything that works?

I just bought a 2008 Expedition with the heavy duty towing package and expected the mirrors to be easy to find. Many hours and frustration later, I still have not found the mirrors to tow my 32 foot camper. I am going to have them custom made if nothing comes up soon. Has anyone found anything or anyone yet to make this work? rcgannaway@cox.net

I have a 2005 ford expedition and it was hard to find mirrors. I found some mirrors, it is from rpm innovations. They are called mirror mirror universal mirrors. They are a ratchet drive connection. They also come with an adapter to hook under the mirror. They work great. There website is www.rpminnovations.com

I went to the above website and they do not carry tow mirrors for 2006 Expedition Limited with heat/memory/directional mirrors. Does anyone have any suggestions?

There is nothing out there. Very strange since it tows more weight than my F150 did and has a factory towing package. FORD! Aftermarket people!

I'm in the same boat. Tow package but inadequate mirrors. I have been able to find out that it was just that one year of Expedition, too. I haven't even been able to fine a strap on, clip on or any other type that works.

I am checking into the fit of an F250 stock mirror. I am told it will work. Looking for a cheap one from a bone yard so I can try it. Then I can buy the nice ones on ebay that are power/heat/turn signal. I have tried two different strap on models and because of the signal on the bottom of the mirror they don't fit properly. One type came off when a truck passed me and the other won't stay in place. Has anyone contacted ford parts?

What was ford thinking. No decent tow mirrors for my 2007 expedition out there from dealer or after market ?? Really! Perhaps people don't tow with this type of truck or there might be demand for them
