Yes, but you don't leave them extended when not towing. As part of the hook up and unhook procedures, you extend the mirrors when hooking up, and telescope them in when unhooking from the trailer.
Mine extend about 3.25" for each mirror, and they are about 106" (8.7') wide when collapsed. My garage door for the pickup is 10', but because of trim the opening is only about 9.5' wide. I can drive into the garage with the mirrors extended only if I am very, very careful. With them collapsed, it's easy to drive in and back out without much worry about crunching the mirrors.
