Power folding and telescoping trailer tow mirrors were not available on F-150s before the 2013 model year. So you're not going to find any in the Ford parts department or accessories catalog that will be plug and play in your 2009.

On my 2012 Lariat with the Lariat Plus pkg, I replaced the power folding stock mirrors with OEM trailer tow mirrors that are manually folding and manually telescoping with no memory. They're required to safely tow a TT, but you have to manually fold and telescope them. On mine I could have paid about $200 more and got the memory function to work, but memory mirrors are not important to me so I saved the money.

The least expensive way to add OEM tow mirrors is to order them from the accessories catalog. Here's mine without memory:
http://accessories.ford.com/kit-rear...ror-10319.html

And here's the same mirrors but with memory:
http://accessories.ford.com/kit-rear...ror-10320.html

The $440 pair will be plug and play in your pickup. The $660 pair will also be plug and play, but the memory feature will not work unless you have memory in your current OEM mirrors.

Even if you pay the big bucks for the 2014 power folding and telescoping mirrors from the parts department, they will be plug and play only for the features your current OEM mirrors have. The power fold will not work unless your OEM mirrors have power fold. You have to add a switch and wiring to your F-150 to get the power fold feature to work. And you don't have power telescope mirrors now, so that feature won't work either unless you do the required wiring and switch to make it work.

There is an aftermarket company working furiously to develop and market the mirrors you want, but they are not yet available. Do a search on power telescoping tow mirrors and you'll probably find that thread.

The new OEM power fold and power telescope mirrors are not yet available in the accessories catalog, so you have to order then from the parts department, and they cost an arm and a leg and your firstborn son. No, I don't know the part numbers, but they have been posted in other threads about tow mirrors, so do the search if you want those part numbers.

Here's a link to the aftermarket power tow mirrors that Smokey is talking about are possibly in development:

Yes. All EOM exterior mirrors from 2009 through 2014 from the basic XL skinny mirrors to the fanciest King Ranch tow mirrors, have the same bolt pattern to bolt onto the door.

I don't have the links handy right now. You can search as good as I can. But I'm pretty sure that bolt pattern is not a problem.
