This 8″ hardwired magnifying mirror has been a lifesaver for plucking eyebrows, finding wayward eyelashes and meeting the needs of teenagers on board our RV. 😉  When we were installing a privacy wall between our bathroom and bedroom on board our 1998 Foretravel U320, we had the opportunity and electricity to add a makeup mirror on […]
