So if the CT isn’t going to have a spot for mirrors, how are we going to tow? Most trucks get towing mirrors installed so they can see their rigs better. Can’t see that cameras will be able to see down the side of an RV.

More cameras, obviously. ;-). Teslas have WiFi and a computer, this is an easy problem to solve.

Stock pickups are not equipped with the mirrors sufficient for extended or wide loads, so auxiliary mirrors are bolted on for such applications. I'm sure we can get these if needed.

It’s all speculation right now. If Tesla doesn’t have some kind of option, I’m sure there will be some aftermarket solutions. Maybe just more cameras…

Most full size pickup trucks have tow mirrors as an option, if they aren't already standard, no need to bolt anything to the truck.

Maybe a camera on a removable stalk for the Cybertruck...

There are suction cup extended side mirrors, that would always be an option. I'm always for new better ways to do things, but after a lifetime of towing various things I will have a hard time not looking down the sides of the rig every few seconds. I drove an RV with a boat behind it on the second day of having a learner's permit...in 1980.
