Outside Light Replacement

Greetings All.
Looking to replace the outside light on our Scamp 13. The old one got a bit melted & was never really weatherproof. Have gone to LED but want a new & better fixture. Looked at marine products but have not found anything that I had to have.
Any suggestions?
Thanks,
Dennis.

I think this is the style Scamp uses now. I did this one years ago but it will require an added switch. It's nice to have the switch inside so you do not need to open the door to operate! (THE BLACK TAPE WAS ADDED TO DIM IT!)

Our 2018 has an outside light with an integrated switch, that has failed. I am going to replace failed switch with a waterproof(?) switch, won't fit where the old switch was, but should work for a while.
As has been said, Scamp now uses a separate switch, mounted inside trailer, to control light. Which should minimize failure

We replaced the exterior "porch light" on our 1990 16' Scamp several years ago. We got the replacement LED fixture directly from Scamp. It was approximately the same size and very easy to switch out. It has a built-in toggle switch to turn it on and off and is brighter than the old one. As I recall, it wasn't much money, $20 or so. I don't know if Scamp still carries the same one, but we are very happy with it.
