I didn't have to cut a hole, there was already a round hole from the furnace vent right next to my door. Since I don't have a propane furnace, no need for the vent. So rather than try to patch that hole, I just 'filled' it with the light. The furnace was in the lower part of my closet. I think that many of the 13footers have closets next to the door, which works fine for a recessed light.

Check out www.mercersmarine.ca for shipboard lights.
They are located in Clarenville, NL. They are a very reliable company and do mail orders. D.

The lighting fixtures at Mercer's Marine are primarily for ship board use but having seen and handled many of the ones they have on the shelves I am convinced that they would have applications in a trailer. The staff are knowledgeable about the products they sell.
They may send you a catalogue.

I will be heading for Barnestead NH in July. Anyone want me to pick something up??

There is another outfit in Truro, NS that sells a lot of new LED light fixtures but I can't find the catalogue. It probably got tossed in the move... if I find it, I'll post it.

Thank's !
If you can make or have a small hole where the light goes there is a Smart light 1000. It is motion activated or manual and monitors the battery.
When wired to a switch it is set to automatic by switching from off to on quickly. if it is off then switch to on then off then on. It also has a photo sensor so it's off when light out.
They run between $50 - $70 depending on where you buy it.

Great idea! When we re-did our kitchen 2 years ago I replaced all the halogen lights with LED strips. The light is bright and diffuse at the same time. I'll have to remember this for when we get the Scamp in June!

I found another catalogue. Trailica, Inc, 1021 Limoges Road, Limoges, ON, Canada, K0A 2M0 [Kilo zero alpha two mike zero] www.trailica.com

It is located east of Ottawa, a short distance off Hwy 417.

I have not done business with this outfit so I can't recommend or not recommend.

Page 92, Item #12715,12716,12717 looks a lot like a Trillium OE
Item #10524 Thin-lite #162 weatherproof outdoor area light.
