Woolfski is right they do vibrate at little, as you can see they do help letting you "See" down the sides of the trailer.
With the vibration you can see that there is something there...your just not sure what it is...LoL

Aj found a clip on mirror from O'reilly and looking at 10 diff type. They work well I have 06 Tundra and the mirrors are thick but these work  great We have high winds and strong gust in Nevada and have not had a problem.I towed without them on the 150 but found out law required me to have towing mirrors.

My rule of thumb is to have twice the tow capacity of the weight being towed.  Helps you get up and over steep slopes.  And yes on WDH.  Size it to the tongue weight and max tow load.  Here's a good review of what to look for:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ihvMVy9L_Gw

If you're not familiar with WDH, look to your dealer for assistance with model and set up.  Good luck!

good idea my Tundra is rated for 7900+lbs .my 150 with all the gear and fire wood about 2850lbs. I never use overdrive when towing and sometimes go into 3 gear on steep grades. Like from Bishop Ca to Mammoth Mt Ca 4000 to over 7000 ft in say 20 miles. The andersen hitch I use is rated to 10,000 lbs an overkill but safe.Thank God for trailer brakes .When I bought the 150 I did not want them hooked up now I am glad I did it.GBA!!!

Heck, trailer brakes are always a good idea!  I bought a 6 X 12 utility trailer a few years ago, just under the weight limit for NYS to have brakes (it weighed 980#s).  It was set up for it though, so I installed brakes, hooked up a 7 pin to match my RV connector and feel much safer when I got a ton of stuff in it.  When we buy the trailer we want, I will match up a WDH to the tongue weight and max trailer weight.  Overkill is not always a good thing!

the andersen hitch I am speaking of is built or made to accommodate diff trailers with same hitch . Just change the ball assembly and ready to go.the thing unique about this hitch is the ball pivots in the hitch and the trailer doesn't wear out the ball . Best hitch I have had in 50 years of towing trailers .Not overkill just very heavy duty.
