We make these lights in Scamp, Casita, Escape, and other fiberglass and vintage trailer brands.

I just got back from a discount party store. They have lights too for themed parties, so if you want SW, you can buy lights that are cacti, Mexican hats, etc. Or if you do your camper up ala Hawaii, you can get lights to match that.

Solar lights of any type.....you can now get them as sting lights or post lights. I use the regular type that you put down in your yard or by your drive way.They get to do triple duty...most of the time they just stay in the yard...untill we go camping ...then I just take them up and take them with us.That way they are already charged when we get there.....Then if we are without lights (due to storm) I bring them in the house at night and place them in vases that (or QT jars) that they fit perfect in durring the day they go back outside to charge.(saves flash light battery)
They give just enough light to set outside and enjoy the night,but do not draw bugs( at least they haven't yet)

I bought a 30" string of LED lights connected to a battery pack that are designed to be used under water in a flower vase. They give off enough soft light to read by at night. I wrapped the string around a 6" pinecone giving it a soft glow at our picnic table. Amazon sells something similar here Amazon.com: LED Fairy String Lights--PURPLE Lights 10 sets 3 lights- for Inside Eiffel Towers and Flower Arrangements: Kitchen & Dining.

For safety's sake I have two 10" high orange cones each equipped with a solar walkway light inserted into the top hole. I place one just outside the door and the other in front of the trailer. They provide just enough soft light at night so I can find the camper after visiting the "loo" and the bright orange prevents dangerous trips during the day. Many campgrounds are rife with stones and logs. In that case I will use the cones to mark a safe walkway to the trailer. (Yes, sometimes I don't have my flashlight with me.)

Those stick-in-the-ground solar lights are becoming quite popular. They are even showing up at Scout camps and jamborees. As you said, strategically placed, they keep us from tripping over guys lines and tent pegs and that's always a good thing.

I have used the solar garden lights for years. They are the best! I have a set that I found on sale 4 years ago. They are only used for the trailer. I carry them in a bucket, throw the bucket in when loading the truck they charge up durning travel. I cover mine when not in use, like I said I still have the same set 4 years later.


I also have solar string lights that a friend bought me a few years back. They are fun and usually charge pretty fast..

My Bigfoot has a "Tiki Lounge" Theme, so I was thrilled to find these flamingo lights at Big Lots for a great deal last year.

Buy Flamingo Light Set. Shop stunning Luau Decorations. Plus Luau,Decorations,Favors, Toys, Gifts,Leis,Tableware,Costume Accessories, Luau,Luau Best Sellers.

These "party lights" sites have lights to match almost any theme!

Unfortunately, one of the strings got wet in a rainstorm and no longer work. I went back to Big Lots a couple of weeks ago to see if they had more, and although they didn't, I did find a nice set of solar lights that resemble old fashined lanterns (10 string lights and then a seperate small lantern which was also solar.)

http://www.lampsplus.com/info-center...2D00_550x0.jpg

I couldn't pass them up for $9.99. I think I am probably going to take them in at night, however, so they don't meet the same fate as my Flamingo lights did!

I bring several of those solar stake lights with me on every camping trip. They usually stay lit all night, so I tend to use one in the bathroom as a "nightlight" and one or two around the Tiki Trailer in tiki torch stands (which I took the gas canisters out of) so there is always a little light in case we wake up in the middle of the night and want to look around. I have a small child, and when we are "dry camping" (which is usually the case) she wants a lantern left on all night as a nightlight. These solar stakes are much less expensive than the 4 D Batteries in our normal lantern! I get perfectly good ones for $1 apiece and have even sent them off with other friends who have small children.

I have an inquiry of my own-I would love to find outside "tiki torches" which are solar. Has snyone seen anything like that? I have taken apart a couple of normal tiki torches to put in the solar lights, but the slats tend to dim the lights too much and they rarely fit tightly enough. I don't really like the normal tiki torches with a lit fire, as I once camped near some people who had the wind come up, which blew a tiki torch into their tent and soon pretty much all of their camping supplies were burned to a crisp.

Not postive sure but I "think" I saw some at our local Target store last night in the patio section. They were in the section that had the string lights and solar lights of all types and I am pretty sure they were solar because eveything in that section was.

Toni,

Try Party City for lights that go with your theme. I saw some at my store yesterday.
