I made my own overhead "fixture"... a white ash frame with two rows of LEDs (switched independently for "hi" and "lo"). Works perfectly... we love it... eliminates the "hash" lighting from only having under-top-bins lights.

Very nice woodworking modifications, also.

I have some really bright LEDs left over. I may try to do that soon.

I've got an Escape 5er on order. I think I'm going to have to talk to Rob to make me one of these. I've been lusting for this mod since he first posted it: What "must have" modifications has everyone done to their trailer?

OMG, OMG, OMG this is a MUST HAVE

Great blog, Ming, Jared and Argus!
You've both done so much work on the trailer, wow. Admireable!
Like how it turned out and also enjoyed your following your travels. Lots of good photos, too.

So, Donna, is this a subtle hint?

I bought two red LED light strips that have peel and stick bottoms off of Amazon. They can but cut every 3 LEDs to fit where you like. If you are a good and with a soldering iron you can reuse the left over pieces elsewhere. Cost was about $15 a strip. I put these on tp of the valence on either side of my cabover.

I also positioned a marine a Navigators light between my galley and dinette. It has a curly cord that allows me to move it to a second mounting plate, which was included, that I place over the dinette. It has an on/off switch and a polarizing filter to reduce the light like a dimmer.

Both of these are great when I want to be in stealth mode. I am day/night pleated shaded I pull down to night mode--which covers three of my windows near these lights. I fold up my pajama cabinet doors which block about 40% of the cab over windows. Some light bleeds through but I'm not a glaring beacon. I camper this way at a solar energy installers conference last month in a a Holiday in parking lot and no one said anything. I walked my dogs every few hours and parked close but a bit out of the away from the entrance.

I also replaced all my interior lights with LEDs. Four pairs on the ceiling with bright white temperature LEDs, the two cabover reading lights and stove light with warmer LEDs. The bathroom has a bluish tint set of four LEDs that I can tolerate.

Last I installed two 30 milliampere marine night-lights. One is by the door and can be reached easily before entering and the other shines down my hallway. Both of these are disappointing in that they are two bright. I plan to put a red tint film over them to make them dimmer.

You would think all these lights would be enough! I want two more. I want one more strip of red LEDs over the dinette valance and a single small led over my thermometer so I can monitor my basement temperature at a glance.

Excuse the typos. I am on a phone with a tiny keyboard. When I reread it I cringe over the errors.

Hi Ming,
A few pix of what I put in; each location has both 12v and 120v options. I used energy saving fluorescent fixtures I found at HDepot.

There are a few interior pictures of my camper. Shows the indirect red LEDs, the floor lights--one on the step up to the bed and the other by the door. Plus one with the bright lights on.

As a bonus you get to see my new four month old puppy and her mom.

I particularly like the floor light near the door as I can easily reach in and twist the switch to provide enough light to climb the stairs safely.
