I think this is totally COOL! I've got quite the light show for gatherings. The Scamp had yellow LEDs around the belly band (held on with deck clips). Hummm, no belly band like that on Ten Forward. Guess I'll just need to lay them out under the trailer as shown on post 10. Look out folks coming to the Fall NOG!

Very nice Donna! I actually am in the process of doing something similar. I bought some LED "fairy" lights for the awning. I am going to run everything off of battery power. I tried shopping for LED strip lights (similar to yours, with big bulbs) but they were more than I wanted to spend.

Chad, it's just fun stuff. I typically don't have any outdoor lights except the one on Ten Forward by the door. But egg gatherings, be bright!

eBay is a great source for battery powered LEDs (or solar). The ones around the belly band in my picture are the small bulbs. Plenty bright!

Love the lights!
Gotta have some glam for rallies and, as I discovered this year, trying to find a dark trailer, at night, in the desert, is really, really hard.
(next time I'll be channeling that motel 6 guy and be 'leaving a light on').

Love it! The belly band looks amazing! ...and regarding the underneath set up with remote.... I just installed the same set up on mine last weekend! Thought I was being original, guess not! Still fun though and sure does give it some pop!

Led decorative lights can be pretty cool in appearance. Solar charged rope lights can be pretty cool particularly multicolored changing LEDs. As for locating your trailer at night there's lots of other options to consider. The one I chose many years ago (8 or 9 years ago) was to put a 4" blue CCFL light inside the trailer. This serves several purposes, the main reason for installation was for a low level light in the middle of the night and not destroy sleep induced night vision. The secondary benefit is windows end up with low level blue light through the curtains which can be seen quit from quit a distance. Other low level lights could do the same thing.

As for seeing critters outside, well, for the past 60 years of camping as teenager on the only critter I've seen in all camping locations is a deer or two and a few chipmunks. In my opinion we as people of the world have way too much fear of the dark. My opinion of backed up by the view of North America from space. Very little dark place left. One never knows there might be fire breathing dragons lurking behind every tree just waiting to gobble you up, they ate all of my ancestors.

Thanks! Used only the blue exterior lights underneath and some interior blue strips inside behind the cupboards, all as more of a novelty to get some laughs(and stand out a bit at the campsite, when necessary). Hooked up to a couple of remotes with a variety of fun settings. I have full regular soft white led lights for everything else, inside and out.

I didn't know they had RGB's otherwise I would have grabbed them!

i have custom made RgB LEDs in their own waterproof housing. RgB helps cause I can actually change the light according to the ground and it makes for an awesome night light.

My kids and their friends love the Uhaul and the lights. All my neighbors alway ask where to buy, how to install, etc etc. So get ready for all the attention!
