Bathroom improvement(s)
This picture shows the medicine cabinet in the Travato 59K with two lights added to each side of the mirrored door. The provided overhead light in the 59K is "ok". A bit yellowish light, I popped off the cover and found that it was a #1141 bayonet incandescent bulb. Wow, how old school is that, considering that WB is using LED's everwhere else in the coach.

It has a milk white lens so it might provide excellent light without blinding you.
