OK I'm just going to come right out and say it ...

I think you should just take off all the rear lights that the PO added, (fill the holes) and replace those 4" round ones on the light housing with 7" LEDs.

Clean it right up!

Only if they can't find the same 4" fixture in LED. I think that is unique to the trailer.
Then again they could change the bulb with a LED replacement

Probably because they didn't want to cut into the body... those buckets stick inside quite a bit and who knows what may behind that area, if mounted like original Bolers. I've been given a set of broken french buckets and I'm racking my brain on how to mount on my Scamp. These inside-out may be the ticket... with round LED tail lights of course.

Be seen, be safe!

Cathy, it was nlife that found them. You should be thanking him.

I did not realize they had Princess Auto in California, or is Neil visiting up here?

I'm starting to feel a little inferior now. Can I be OK for noticing they were on sale?

While we are still on the subject of lights, the tail lights are very low (to the ground). Anyone added a light on the upper corner of the cabin?

Those are typically called Third Brake Lights: third Brake Light - Google Search

unless you're asking for dual tail lights...

I am just thinking that the visibility from the back is not great. Even with bright tail lights they are low to the ground. The visibility from the side is nil. The tail lights aren't visible from the side. Maybe I'm talking about running lights. Is there something small that would match the style for the trailer and could I wire it to the tail lights.
