If you can find the right part number then CIPA makes a great slide over mirror which custom fits over your stock mirror....
Cipa Slide Over Towing Mirrors

I have those for my Ranger and they are great and rock steady.

I made my own from a bicycle mirror for my Ford Escape..
Small, but effective it required one small hole to be drilled in the outer lip of the mirror housing....

Floyd, I like your thinking out of the box fix..
One of the reasons no LEOs have not spoke up is it depends on the state's requirements plus DOTs/ Canada "DOT" equivalent. Some States are not allowed to enforce State Codes on out of State tagged vehicles. Example: proof of insurance. or vehicles that have violations of State of Registration. Speeding and traffic control signs/ lights are cut and dry violations.

I've used a few different types of mirrors over the years and they all had pluses and minuses. I tow a SD 17 with a Ranger and find that the stock mirrors are fine but I did buy a set of slide on extention mirrors from Etrailer and carry them just in case. They work very well with almost no vibration and are very easy to install. I guess it depends how wide your TV is to your trailers width and the view you have to the rear that you are comfortable with. My wife kids me for getting over to the right lane for an exit 2 miles ahead and having to deal with slower traffic merging in. It comes from driving big rigs since 1980, people just don't want to give up that extra two seconds they will loose by letting you in and me missing my exit because of them. Go figure. One other trick you may want to use to know if you are clear in order to slide in in front of another vehicle is the shadow of your trailer if the sun is right as it's easy then to see the distance between you and that vehicle.

We also use the Milenco mirrors. So far so good. They clip on nicely and can be extended far enough to see well.
