Re: Looking Glass

Here's what I did. I bought a mirror that was roughly the size of the rear of the closet door. I then took an exact measurement of the indented back of the closet door where I wanted the mirror to fit flush. I took the mirror to speedy auto glass and had it cut to fit. I then used double sided tape plus four normal plastic mirror tabs to hold it in place. It looks great and can't fall off. Now my wife can open the closet door and sit on the bed and do her hair looking in the mirror.

Re: Looking Glass


I've decided to do the smart thing and install the mirror in the garden instead of in the trailer. And, no, I haven't shaved today.

Re: Looking Glass

In addition to the mirror breakage factor, I understand that the weight is a concern vis a vis the hinges on the bathroom door. I don't think its a recommended addition. However, maybe there is a way to augment those and eradicate that concern.

Re: Looking Glass

We have decided to install a small mirror to the left of the bathroom door on our 19. I am putting heavier hinges on the door and will have a couple coat hooks there.

Originally I was going to do that the other way around, but the bulk of the coats at that corner would make entering that side of the dinette tougher.

Besides, we hang most of our coats on the outside of the trailer by the door.

Re: Looking Glass

Well it took awhile to get the camera out.
But this is where I glued my mirror for the bathroom.

No just plain old construction adhesive (Tite Bond), but Franklin or PL Series will
work as well. The trick is to prop it into place and leave it for 5 or 6 days
until the adhesive cures.

Re: Looking Glass

Oh forgot to mention its just a piece of 3mm mirror
so it shouldn't cost more then $10.00 from your local
glass shop. You could also ask them to put a couple
of pieces of foam tape on the back to help hold it
in place until the glue sets.
