Mirror Mirror On The Wall

Our Escape 19 had a funky plexiglass? mirror that made you look slim or portly depending on outside temperatures, or what side of the bed you got out of, or whether there was a full moon.

I do not recall a mirror in the 21, is there? What about the other models?

There is a mirror on bathroom door, inside the bath.

The mirror in my 19' actually makes me look kind of good.
Unfortunately, not all mirrors are the same.

How big is the mirror, is it standard in all the 21's ? What about the 5TA's?

After our last trailer having 3 different mirrors, we are glad to have none in our 19. We do carry a small handheld for when needed. We really have no need for a permanently mounted one, as we are not too keen about looking at ourselves. I much prefer to look at my wife.

That statement earns a lot of frequent flier smiles....

If you are going to instal a mirror anywhere, think about where the light it coming from. It needs to illuminate you, not the mirror.
Mine is mounted on the inside of the bathroom door. The door is open when the mirror is in use and the light inside the bath, along with the light next to the trailer door, provide even illumination.
