has anyone mounted a mirror on the  bathroom door? If so, how did you do it?  Don’t really want to put screws in the door, but also a bit leery about putting adheasive on the wood finish.  Any tips?

You could buy a acrylic mirror, which would be lighter and wouldn’t shatter if it fell. It would probably be easier to hang as well.

   I hung a full length mirror on the bathroom door with 3M double stick tape. Holds fine.

I have a door mirror with attached hooks for hanging over the top of the door, no screws or other mounting tools needed. It is similar to this one:

This came with my previous sticks-and-bricks house. Owner before me left it behind. When I sold the house to become a full time RVer, I took the mirror with me and put it in my camper

Originally, we used an over the door hanging mirror in our 2017 181B.  I added a few slats of scrap wood to the back of the mirror to keep it flush with the door so it wouldn’t bang back and forth while driving.  In the summer of 2018, while on a cross country (Connecticut to California and back) trip the mirror failed.  The little screws that attached the hangers to the mirror separated.  I thought about fixing it but decided to start over.  This was in Butte Montana.  We picked up a new mirror, some two-sided tape and mirror brackets for a little redundancy. I added those little blue anchors that are typically used on drywall so the screws could attach to something in the hollow of the door.  It has held up fine.  I am not sure the image has attached.  In the end, it was a 15 minute or so project in the parking lot while my wife and kids did some grocery shopping.
