Thanks soo much..
My mom and my wifes mom were both diagnosed with cancer a month apart 3 years ago...My mother-in-law lost her battle a little over a year ago..My mother who is around 5' tall weights 80 lbs has really fought a hard battle and still going strong..I'm 6'2" and 260 and she still scares me to death.. I still remember when I was a teenager and would get in trouble sometimes and she would say "bend down here so I can slap them jowls" and believe me you do what mama says no matter how big you are or how much it hurts.....

Randy, I fully understand. My wife has some serious health conditions and we are going to use the camper to get away. She is very much loved and cared for but at time the caring calls and visits just overwhelms her. This way we can go somewhere alone to escape and think, relax and look at the stars at night. It marvels me how far we have come with our health care and then some issues come up and there may not be an "easy" fix as we usually come to expect. I wish you the best for being a care giver and I wish the best for your mom.

Randy,
Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. Life always seems to throw us curveballs...

When you do get around to working on your trailers again, we wouldn't mind having a chance to get a set of tail light lenses, too.

UHaul Taillight housing and Lens Assembly

OK I found the hyperlink provided to U-Haul and figured out how it works and found the Taillight Housing at $11.74 each under part # 37715001. Now for the big question I see there are four Lens Assemblies offered, 2 are Red and 2 are Amber, one set is $.75 for each lens and the other $2.15 for each lens. Does anyone have insight as to why the price difference for the same part description? I may go this route as an option. But want to be sure if I do I order the correct items. Thank you in advance.

Thomas, do the screw holes on the aluminum tail light adapters line up to the existing holes for the "glass" lens? Thanks

For 75 cents you get the marker light lenses only, for $2.15 you get the whole assembly. I'd go for the whole assembly. I found mine had cracked where the pop rivet was attaching them to the body. You can reuse the old UHaul marked lens with the new light fixture.

No, I think you'd have to drill a bunch of new holes in the fiberglass body to install these. I notice they also sell the 4" light to fit inside, though I didn't buy them.

This is not an elegant solution - I suspect that UHaul ended up with a failed supplier and realized that their whole fleet was at risk so they had this adapter rushed into production. One option might be to use this adapter as a mold and make some nicer ones from fiberglass. You could then incorporate a different production lens into the housing.
