Where to install a mirror?

I like the roadtrek door mirror and was wondering if anyone has attempted a mirror installation on the door panel. The tiny bath mirror aint cutting it for me

Consider this: Mount it on the cabinet door behind the bathroom, not on the bathroom extension panel. That way you can open the cabinet door and use the mirror more easily from the aisle, at whatever distance works best for you.

And you could choose to mount the mirror on the outside of the door or on the inside, whichever you prefer. Or even both inside and out, so two people could use mirrors at once, one standing in the aisle to the front of the open cabinet door and one to the back.

The mirror couldn't be any taller than the door it's mounted on, of course, so the mirror on the cabinet door would be smaller than one on the bathroom extension panel. But a big mirror would be wasted on the bathroom extension anyway because you couldn't step far enough away from it to take advantage of the extra length.

Related thought:

If you add a tempered glass mirror to any hinged panel, put some more screws into the hinge to help support the extra weight. A pane of silvered glass is surprisingly heavy.

You could get lighter-weight materials for the mirror, but usually with more distortion in the mirror image.

They deleted this in newer Interstates? Our 2007 came with a long mirror on the inside of the closet door. I have worried that mounting another one on an exposed surface might lead to unforeseen and undesirable reflection effects. I have metallic trim here and there on the inside of my minivan, and even that little bit manages to catch the full force of the sun and throw it where I don't want it.

Ours has a long mirror, too, but I put a small one up on the inside of the bathroom door, for hair brushing and make-up.

You can find small ones for lockers in back to school areas of WalMart, etc.

Double stick tape, and you're good to go.
