googling, I read that Reflect-o-lights were quite common in the 70s, but haven't been made since, so if you DO find those, they are going to be 40 year old plastic, probably as brittle as your originals.

unless you're trying for concours style original resto, I'd probably find some modern waterproof LED trailer lights of a suitable size to cover the mounting pattern of those...

lots of choices here, https://www.etrailer.com/dept-pg-Tra...il_Lights.aspx

I’ve got LED bulbs in there now. The problem is the fiberglass mold that’s curved as well. That older model light is the only that fits evenly. A smaller round or rectangular style with new mounting plate would look out of place.

Pat, What are you needing to fix? Broken lens, more light or something else?
The early Bigfoot 17' models have the same Reflect-O-Lite models. Mine had a cracked lens which I glued with model airplane glue and it has held fast for 9 years. I wanted more light than the 1 dual element incandescent bulb put out. I replaced it with a LED which was not any better. So I added two red surface mount LEDs that would fit inside the old lens. One wired to the tail light circuit and the other wired to the brake light circuit. Much better!

I occasionally see Reflect-O-Lite 750 fixtures on eBay. Also, the Reflect-O-Lite 910 and the Peterson V25911 are both 8.5" x 4.5" though they are true rectangles. Good luck with your search!

Apparently they were on some 70's pop-ups, too. Maybe check salvage yards?

Could you cut a pair out of red plexiglass or lexan? However they wouldn't have the reflective characteristics of a normal DOT approved lens.
