Plate glass mirror?

We have a frameless 24 x 36 plate glass mirror that belonged to my Mother in law. DW cherishes this mirror. I've seen mirrors mounted on MH walls in pictures but not up close. Are they plate glass and how are they mounted? Anyone know? I want to put it on the wall by the dinette that is partially covered when the slide comes in. It is the front wall of the bathroom.

One consideration - derived from bitter experience - if it truly is plate glass and not some sort of safety glass is that if they shatter in an accident they break into very large, very sharp pieces. At the very least it needs to have a sheet of thick plastic stuck to the back of it before mounting

Flanigan. I did the same thing. Got some of the mirror hangers for a bath wall. Has a lip on the cliip and screws into the wall, as the wall is luann. For added security, adhesive on the back will help.

As stated, you must put tape, thin packing tape will work, completely covering the back for safety if the glass breaks. All mirrors in MHs are built this way.
Getting there is half the fun - take your time and enjoy the scenery.
