I switched mine all over to LED this year as I am going to be doing a far bit of off the grid camping this summer in warm areas and wanted to save what ever power I can to make sure my fantastic fan has enough to keep going.

Purchased the the flat ones that fit into the socket of the original fixtures. Paid about $18 per at a local RV shop. Took a little getting use to the change but they will do the job just fine.

They don't have any 1157 equivalent bulbs for those fixtures.
I think SuperbrightLeds have the 1157 bulbs (dual element) which is what you may need.

I have LED lights from Dinodirect which I installed in my trailer. They work perfectly and are very bright. I got the 5050led type lamps for a dome light and wired them in.

All kinds available. Prices were hard to beat.

Expect today's crop of LEDs to seem about 2/3 as bright, but they only use 10%-15% as much current. So you can turn 2 of them on if you need extra light (for reading maybe) but still use far less juice.

one nice thing about LEDs... They don't turn the cupboard above them into an EasyBake Oven like the incandescents do when mounted under a cupboard.

Shopping at Camping World is like shopping anywhere else. BUY when there's a SALE. I just bought a 30' extension cord at Walmart. And could have gotten it cheaper at Camping World one block away... because it was on SALE (with President's Club card). Oh well.....

I replaced all the lights with LEDs in my Scamp and they are just as bright as the incandescent lights. I got them at LEDTrailerLights.com.

I just re-did my wiring and added a couple of led under cabinet strips under the side and front upper storage.

Justin--that looks great!

I guess if one replaced the whole fixture, you would have to find a new one that was exctly the same size, wouldn't you? And meticulously seal it with the ensolite again, to prevent moisture getting in? So, I'm in the process of painting the yellowed old light fixtures, and will try to replace just the bulbs. Just painted he yellowed old frames below the roof vents, and they turned out beautifully. Thanks!
