Can't find this light bulb ?

It is used in the Vanity lights of a 1975 Travco 270(as well as other 70's years and models of Travco).
I have spent three nights trying to find a bulb with no luck. No one has ever heard of it. The number on it is 1143KF but that number does not cross to what I have. An 1143 is a Bayonett style bulb and mine is an edison screw type, The 1143K bulb looks right but it is an E17 base(17mm).
Mine measures 15mm. No one has ever seen or heard of this bulb ???
Anyway I am hoping someone here has.
It is 12 volt.

Good luck, I hope someone has the answer for you. You seem to have done a lot of research already

Thanks. I realize I could just change the light fixtures but I am stubborn Irish and want to keep them.

I dropped the F by mistake and found one. The F must = Frosted.

You can find those bulbs at many RV parts places, RVupgrades, camping world etc but you can also find them at many automotive parts stores and they should cost under 2 bucks each.

Its not an 1143k. The 1143k has 17mm base. Mine has 15mm.
I have tried every rv supply, autoparts, online bulb store. No one has ever seen this bulb yet Travco used them for awhile.
