Trailer: 13 ft Scamp
Posts: 59
Lately I've been trying to go for a more retro look on my 13' foot Scamp. So when my plastic porch light gave out I decided to replace it with something small and round. I found a back-up light at my local Northern Tool that I thought would do the trick.

There were two problems though; I would have to fashion a reflector since the back-up light tended to shine straight out in a beam. Second, unlike my old porch light, the new one wouldn't have an outdoor switch (minor inconvenience).

So, here it is:

The light cover and hand fashioned reflector:

That's so cool. Round like an egg! Most of the porch lights are too big for these small trailers (IMHO), but it appears you found something that not only fits the size of the egg but will provide all the light you need at night. I really like the indoor switch idea too.
