The dealer will charge you the price of the new lamp, and just ship you the lens for about the same price you paid for the motorhome.

If you are intent on staying with the old inefficient, leak style lamps, you should probably just buy a replacement for the extra $.34 /unit as you will need it sooner than later.
"That looks like it, but I was hoping to get replacement lenses for now, till I get all my leaks found. and this is what the napa 1571d looks like and $4.29 each "

Here's something to check out, I re-bedded our marker lights and they stooped leaking. If you re-bed yours check and see if they are on the right way up. There is a drain hole in the housing so condensation under the lens can drain out. I found about half of our lights with that hole facing up instead of down!

The original clearance lights did not always have a good seal against water inclusion. As well, you could never know what the PO did. After constant fussing with clearance lights where the bulbs lost contact, and water managed to seep in around the the so-called gasket, I bought all new clearance lights from Dan (LED4RV.COM) - now they all matched, and led lights don't have the same issues regarding the contacts to the bulbs corroding.

After I sold the LY and bought a trailer, I did the same thing - all incandescent lighting, inside & out were replaced with LED's.

Replacing just the lenses is not a good idea.

Why ??

Plastic shrinks in time.

You have old clearance light bases, and you want to install new lenses on them.

Usually the new lens will fall off because the base is now smaller than new.

I would suggest replacing all the exterior lights with LED's.

Today, they are cheaper than ever, and certainly far longer lasting, along with being brighter in the day that the originals are at night.

I measured my clearance lights, now keep in mind these are recessed. 3 5/8 long X 2 1/2 tall and they are tight in the recess. All of the ones I find are 3 3/4" wide.

Airstream finally got back to my Airstream dealer and had no solutions for my clearance light issue. I did find and extra red lens, it is inside the driver door. I'll use tape for the other for now.
