would love to locate 1977 scamp taillight lens cover

Well of course I broke mine trying to find a leak (don't ask) and now I find out they are obsolete......of course they are ....so I could go buy new tail lights entirely, patch the old holes, wire in the new ones and potentially make new spots for water to come in....OR hopefully somebody took of their old taillights and just happen to have the lenscover waiting nearby handy ready to ship off to just the right person......Promise I'll take good care of the new one......

Brandy, I owe you. If it's the "wedding cake" style you need, send me a PM and we'll arrange shipping. Do you need the one for the license plate or the other one? I'm swapping mine for LEDs!

[b]In the short term, I think Alf has the right idea.

From my observations, your tail lights may not be original to your trailer. Donna's would be. My speculation is that a previous owner had a similar accident to what you recently experienced. The round style fixtures that used to be ubiquitous to all travel trailers in the '70s were not available at the previous owner's local auto parts store, but those [b]generic utility trailer fixtures were. They changed out the whole fixture for both tail lights, because it was easier to get something that was locally available cheap.

You might want to go a similar route... Look in WalMart or Pep Boys or Kragen's. But you may not find the exact same lens,

OR, if you want that original Scamp look, buy Donna's.

great question...but I'm not sure...I can find no other holes to indicate that there was a previous kind of tail light installed.......

Brandy's square tail lights would be original...........my family had a '77 Scamp back in 1980 and it had the square tail lights and I believe rectangle side marker lights. Good luck on your search.

Brandy, I have a tail lens cover that matches yours that you can have. I just replaced all the lights on my 1977 scamp with new led lights. I checked your photo and it matches the ones from mine. I'm pretty new to this site, so not really sure about how messaging works. If you can message me with contact info, we can get this in the mail to you this week. John Hunt.
