Bathroom Light

The light in the bathroom of our 21 is behind you when you are looking in the mirror and so your face is in shadow. This bothered me every time I shaved so I headed to Home Depot to look for a solution. I ended up buying two of this battery powered led light and mounted one on each side of the mirror using the included double sided tape. They are not water proof or resistant so one must be careful when using the shower but other than that they work great and I can finally see my face. My wife loves them for putting on makeup.

As an alternate, install a mirror on the door, one on the inside so that the light is now in front of you and one on the outside of the door, makes the trailer look twice as big.

I have a mirror on the inside of the bath door on my 17B. There is a light above the sink and another at the entry to the trailer. With the door open and the lights on, a face is properly lit.

I wonder if Escape installs mirrors on the door now that there is a mirror on the medicine cabinet?

I donno. I installed my own ( but, not glass ). It's plexi or Lexan or some sort of plastic from a glass shop. Has stayed up with double sided tape for 10 years.

No mirror on my new 21.
Just the med cabinet.

Got a full length mirror from Wallys put it on the outside of the bathroom door.Used the Commander tape.Works good, and yes the trailer looks larger inside.

Wait a minute your camping why do you need to shave?

Enjoy the journey.
