I modified my lounge bed to a U shaped twin setup and use RV Superbags. They work great with sheets held in by Velcro tabs.

Mirror for the wife & added some bling

We were not using the rear TV and I was bumping my head on it getting in and out of the bed so I removed it. My wife was not happy with the various mirror arrangements we had tried for her to put her makeup on. With the TV removed, a possible space for a mirror was available. I found a mirror on eBay and finally got around to installing it today.

After having her try various locations for the mirror, it was decided that mounting it low on the side of the wardrobe cabinet was the best option. She could either sit on the rear sofa or use the driver's side seat. After mounting the mirror, the next goal was to keep it from flopping around. I found a knob and a 1/4-20 stud at Lowe's and was able to use one of the existing TV mount holes. To keep the rotating mirror from causing noise, I simply draped a microfiber towel over it.










I also added some bling to the exterior by installing polished stainless steel covers on the door handles and the mirrors.

Need some soft bumpers mounted on the cabinet behind the mirror so you don't have to drape a towel over it.

The exhaust tip is by Gibson. I found it on eBay.

The chrome covers came from EuroCampers.

We camped for a couple days this weekend in the western NC mountain area. This was the first time my wife used our newly installed mirror. She loved it. It worked well for her to sit on the rear sofa to do her hair and makeup as she could lay out all of her things on the side seat beneath the wardrobe cabinet. Happy wife, happy life!!!

I also took Protag's advice about the cabinet bumper pads. Worked great!!

How hard would it be to change the rear lounge over to a set of two lengthwise couches facing one another and folding down to form the bed? I'm not loving the enclosed feel at the back end.

Hi, Rosie. Your profile shows you as a trailer owner... did you buy an Interstate or were you thinking of doing so? If so, what year are we talking about? That matters for addressing your question.
