Where best to place a Mirror in new E21

My wife and I have searched high and low on the website to try and find how folks have gone about adding a mirror to an E21 but cannot find any information. We are assuming we could mount one in the panel recess on the outside of the the wardrobe door but would welcome any feedback as to what E21 owners have done. A friend of mine has a very nice "Northern Lite" truck camper and they come with them on the fridge door.

Wherever you decide to place the mirror, keep in mind that you need light to illuminate the face of the person looking into the mirror, or it's pretty much useless.

We added a mirror to the door of what would have been the microwave cabinet. However the door was slightly modified by ETI during the build.

I took the door to a glass supplier and they cut the mirror to size and installed the mirror too.

If you are going to the Rally, will be there and happy to show you, if you’d like.

Our first modification to our 21 was the addition of a shatterproof acrylic mirror to the bathroom door. We purchased a 12x48 rectangle mirror to give us a full length mirror. Acrylic is very light weight and will not break. You must fasten securely on a flat surface. Acrylic mirrors will bend and distort the image. I used ten clips on the mirror. Four on each side and one on the top and bottom.
