      Happy New Year to all you TCs. I needed something from my TC on New Years Day. While inside I checked around, it’s been sitting in place since July, under a cover.

      Warning-If you have a Northstar Laredo with a mirror in the toilet space, suggest you remove it and put it up properly with epoxy, No More Nails and such. It seems the mirror is only put up with tape. It’s a miracle the thing hadn’t fallen down when we’ve been on some of the crazy roads we’ve driven. No, it fell down just standing still.

      It could have fallen off when someone was in the shower, shattered in a million pieces and really caused some injury.

      Miraculously the mirror didn’t break. I can’t imagine what Northstar (maybe something similar is done in other makes too) was thinking to put the thing on with tape!

      I would want a mirror made from Plexiglass/lexan/acrylic like that used in airliner restrooms.

      This exact same thing happened in our old Laredo. We went with acrylic mirrors that we bought at IKEA in our new Roadrunner.

      The mirror on my TC650 lasted a couple of years. My friend’s only lasted a year. This is just one of my complaints about the quality with the Northstar. Really great design with lots of cheapness in the details.
