Larger Bathroom Mirror

I’ve not figured out why Airstream used an 8” folding mirror in the bathroom of our 2017 International 30, but I couldn’t take it any longer.

Replaced with an 18” fixed mirror. What a difference!

Lockable Mirror Cabinet

I too added a larger mirror - the IKEA Gunnern lockable for $40. You can hang it either way up so that the door swings the way you want. Added useful, locking storage too. I removed the telescoping mirror.

The fold-out mirror really bothers me also after owning an FC19 and FC25 with larger mirrors. Another problem is the location of the ceiling lights in my opinion. I pull the small 8" mirror way out so I can back up a bit and have my face illuminated by the ceiling light well enough to shave and I would guess some ladies would have a problem with the height of mirror and poor lighting too?! I like the large wall mounted mirror idea. I put a 10" x 40" mirror on the back of one of my wardrobe doors for a dressing mirror which has been useful. I may relocate or replace one of the ceiling lights near the mirror to improve illumination and will replace the 8" soon. It's on my projects list!

I was somewhat expecting to need to do something with the lighting after I installed the larger mirror because it definitely seemed like lighting was a problem when we had the folding mirror. I actually find the lighting is okay now though.

Good to hear that with the larger mirror that the existing light is OK. I like the round mirror shape you used. Looks good with the curve of the outer wall. I'll follow your lead. Great idea.

dmcgaugh, do you remember the name of the company that made your mirror? I think it looks great, and the little circular fasteners are like big rivets. Love it!

Yes, it was Dulles Glass and Mirror
https://www.dullesglassandmirror.com/wall-mirrors
...I ended up ordering it as one of their semi-custom mirrors because their stock round mirrors have a beveled edge and I wanted a plain edge.

And I bought the fasteners off of Amazon.
C.R. LAURENCE MC02CH CRL Chrome Round Mirror Clip Set https://www.amazon.com/dp/B000KZV770..._ins4BbM406SKC

I also used an adhesive behind the mirror in addition to the fasteners, because I wanted the mirror to be very secure.

Thanks so much, dmcdaugh, AdventureAS, and wulfraat. We definitely have to get on this. We are now full-time, and that one little mirror is not cutting it.

What kind of mirror did you use? Our full length door mirror fell off it brackets after going on a washboard road for 8 miles in the Nevada desert. Our bracket screws loosened with the vibration.

Thanks! Steve

We purchased a 2019 Serenity 30RBQ this weekend and first modification is adding a mirror we never installed in previous RV. Did we just trade for a new RV just to make use of the old mirror?
