Well, I'm impressed... if you care Personally, I'd go with LED tail lights... think you'd be happier with the brightness. You can get replacement LEDs that only someone in the "know" would notice they're not original because they're so close to the same size, shape.

I've looked but all the tail lights I've found are too short these need to be 13" over all and all the new ones I've found are 8", and what I want to do is find the orginal ones and redo the inside workings to make them LED's that would be easy but just can't find the lights...But I haven't give up looking yet either.....Still got a ways to go before I have to do something about them....THANKS RANDY

Hi Randy,
I just bought an set of new original taillights for my '72 1300 Trillium from Paul Neumeister at A-1 Auto Refinishing in Sebringville, ONtario. He fixes up and sells eggs as a hobby and he happened to have a set. I had to send him a money order rather than pay by credit card. He has a web site with contact info at;
Fibreglass RV Parts, Repairs, and Service by Paul Neumeister
Good luck,
Barrie

Paul Neumiester at http://fiberglass-rv.com shows original old stock trillium tail lights on his site. I have no idea what shipping would be from Ontario but it's a source you can trust.

I second Paul Neumeister, he is a great guy and very helpful!
I too bought a set of tail light assemblies from him and it was a great transaction.

tailights for Trillium

Randy I will put in a third vote for Paul, original part and good service:
Fibreglass RV Parts, Repairs, and Service by Paul Neumeister

He has a stock of the original tailights that he picked up when the factory closed along with a few other parts. Hope that helps.

Randy posted in his new Trillium Reno thread that he got some, but Barrie might still be looking. Maybe I will move those posts over here!

Regards,

Matt
