Brake lights for my 75 Trillium 1300

I'm guessing this is common problem but haven't found a thread that helps.

Just bought a 75 Trillium 1300 in really good shape. Replaced the marker lights with new LEDs.
The problem I'm having is that the brake/tail light lenses are in pretty bad shape. Would like to find replacements but can't find any lights that will cover the the spot where the old ones are.
The trailer was painted recently and the lights were not removed so it's pretty ugly under them. Two lights per side would be fine if I can get the right size.

Lights need to be 3 1/2 x 13

Thanks for reading.

Try contacting Paul Neumeister and see if he still has some rear lamp assemblies left.

Good luck.

Looking for LED brake lights

Thanks Stefman, talked to Paul yesterday and he doesn't know where to get the lenses I need.
Now I'm trying to find LEDs that cover the same space.
13 3/16 x 3 5/8" up to 14 x 4"

For my trailer I used the typical led rectangular submersible ones that you can buy just about anywhere and then I put pieces of the red reflective safety tape on either side to hide the holes. From a few feet back it looks good. I haven't seen the larger ones for quite some time.

I think that may be the way to go. If I can figure out how to post a picture I will do so when I'm done.

At the bottom there is a note about LED replacement lights at the bottom. I may update mine as well since I currently have them off.

I'm emailing about the decals. I'll ask about the lights as well.



EDIT:

"
Tail lights:
After being in inventory for 1 year, that last set of lights was sold 3 days ago - sorry.
There is little call for them, so I won't re-order.
However, you can order from your local RV dealer.
This is the part you need.
