Lightbulb bathroom mirror and storage

i am anxiously waiting for the weather to clear so that i can go pick up my little casita! in the meantime, i'm mulling over how to address what i see as potential problems where i am concerned.
1) there is no bathroom mirror, right? what wonderfully clever ideas are being used to put a mirror in the bathroom? or, are people just putting one somewhere else to use?
2) has anyone come up with brilliant ideas for bathroom storage? just wondered if it were possible, or if stuff just has to be shlepped in and out because of the tiny amount of space.
i have not yet even been inside one of the 17' trailers; so, i haven't a solid idea of what i'll have to work with. all suggestions will be most appreciated!!

I have a casitas freedom deluxe and ours has a full length mirror on the outside of the bathroom door
No clever ideas

Wherever you place your mirror, you will need light that illuminates your face, or it will be useless.
My mirror is inside the bath door and the person using it is lit by a light inside the bath and another on the other side.

I agree with Alan. I like a full length mirror. How else can I see how my behind looks in my jeans.

We have no bathroom so a mirror is on the inside of an upper cabinet door.

I chose mirror squares applied with with the included sticky tape. I put mine full length on the outside of the bathroom door (course, I wasn't trying to shave). A box of 10 squares(12"x 12") is reasonably priced. You could put one on the inside of bathroom for shaving.
I was concerned that the sticky tape would wear out and crash a mirror to the floor, but after 8 years and a lot of washboard roads, they were still secure.

I used a fishing tackle box attached to the wall with a mirror attached to the lid.

Love the fishing tackle box / mirror concept! Addresses the wet shower / keep the stuff dry requirement and the need to see your face while shaving. How did you attach the plastic box to the wall? GREAT IDEA!!

IKEA has a lot of wonderful little things, including a little $9 medicine cabinet in bright blue or white. They also have "wall pockets" with many little niches, hanging storage things like crab pots (kids section) -- boxes, bins...baskets...love it! And often their prices on such "notions" are very good. As inexpensive as any 2nd hand store, but better quality than the Dollar Stores (which we like as well for such things as super miniature "desk lamps" that can be bent to aim where you want -- about 3" high).

An alternative is a bag that hangs on a hook. Contains everything you would need for shower and shave, and you can take it to the campground shower without having to transfer everything from one container to another.
