If your lights are relativily light i would use 3m adheasive tape on the whole back side and then just pop rivet them in place. Just going through the shell and not through everything. The adheasive tape should absorb any vibration and the rivets gives you peace of mind. A small dab of butyl tape at the rivets and at the wires

Okay, sounds like a plan. Thanks, Steve.

We just talked to Salesman Jim at the plant last Saturday and he says the "boss" told him that the extra lights could not (or maybe no longer) be ordered for a 13' trailer.

Be politely emphatic... for instance, I just talked to two people who were told that they couldn't get both A/C and a fantastic fan on a 13, of course, you can!

Regarding attachment of the upper light units... should I just rivet all the way through insulation and rat fur, with an exposed acorn nut inside, should I make a slit & hide the rivet under the rat fur (with or without a nut?), or should I use stainless hardware?

Also, what kind of sealer should I use around the hole where the wires come out? How do I seal the light unit itself?
The LEDs which I used are small and light weight. The came with self-adhesive strips on the back. The wire hole was small and a little touch of silicone sealer was good. they are PLENTY bright and visible!
the top one is the tail light.
The round one is the brake/turn signal which makes it an exclamation point when activated. Of course you could use four of the little strip lights.

Bob, We have a Scamp 16 on order right now and we are having the second set of tail lights put on 75.00. I would talk to Kent the owner.
