Is there a bathroom sink mod????

Good day fellow campers. My wife and I are looking at a 21' today. One major issue " may be" my wife's need for putting in and removing contacts in the bathroom. I see from pics that there is no sink cabinet. Linda at ETI tells me there are no options from the factory for a shelf of any kind. I am hoping that there are other owners who have figured out a way to change contacts in the Escape bathroom, ideally with space for a small lighted mirror and surface to hold a contact case.
It would be unfortunate if this issue were a deal breaker. Cheryl believes there must be other Escape owners who have figured it out

Can't use the kitchen? Has a sink, and counter.

You can mount a mirror on the door inside, right next to the sink, if that helps...

Bob, I guess you have not been searching for a flying contact lens in a larger, cluttered area.

Much better to be in a confined, "clean" area. Those dang lenses love to play hide and seek!

You will need light falling on the face of the person looking into the mirror for the mirror to be useful.

I believe there is a light right over the door, although not falling but attached.....

I think that would be at the dinette with a mirror on a stand and plenty of light.

Just looking for suggestions to a problem I don't have yet and would like to " head off at the pass"

P.S. I don't wear contacts so to me...... but " happy wife=happy life" and possibly a new Escape!!

Ikea makes a variety of suction cup mounted accessories that work well on the fiberglass wall surface - towel bars and a number of different baskets, bins, soap dishes, etc. If you just need a small shelf to hold a contact case their soap dish would probably work great.
