After our first trip out I was thinking about installing some type of rear view mirror so I could see what was going on inside the coach. However I don't necessarily want it up when we are watching TV. Anyone done this, and thoughts or advice... or photos?

I stuck a 4" catseye to the dash/instrument panel area. Must have paid $3 for it at WalMart.

I have thought about getting a small mirror but never have. Good idea.

I have used an old right side car mirrow and mounted it in the last three motorhomes I have had. The convex allows you to see in a wide angle all the way back to the bedroom. It is mounted high and below the tv with a couple short self tapping screws.

I tried rigging up a spare camera I have.Problem is it doesnt have enough range or clarity(it is a cheapo).I might invest in a voyager camera and hook it above tv,use the spare camera location on the rearview system.Works for me.I sometimes drive with just the kids and really do need to be able to see them

I put a rearview mirror from a Winnebago Journey. It was about $20. I use it, but can't really see as much as I'd like. I still end up turning around for a quick glance.

I use a small mirror that has a clip which I attach to my visor. I got it in the Baby section at Walmart. The advertised use is to keep an eye on your baby in the back seat of the car. Many different sizes available. HarveyP

My MH has a regular automotive mirror mounted on the center windshield post. It does a pretty good job down the aisle, but does not allow seeing the sofa or anyone on the wall side of the dinette. Also if the bathroom doors are open, I see what's ahead of me in the mirror bouncing off the rear closet mirrored doors. I bought a license plate size mirror designed to clip to a visor that I use "hand-held" to check on the kids on the sofa.

Sounds crazy but--I carry a hand held mirror about 5" by 8" and keep it on floor next to seat. Pick it up when needed and can look around behind me pretty well. Not perfect, but is the best solution I have found to date. I find I do not need it often, usually when I hear an unusual noise when things go bump during the ride.

I went to Babies-R-Us and bought a little baby view mirror with a suction cup. It looks like a mini rear view miror, I stick it on the TV screen and it works great. Pops right off when I want to watch the tube. It was only a couple of bucks.

Best Regards!

Kind of a relief to find out I'm not the only one with this issue. I like the baby-mirror stick-on idea. My quick glances just do not generate the required data.
