Interior Lighting Sources

We are currently in the rebuild phase on our 24' Rear door and I have been planning the interior lighting. I have searched the forums and the Internet and I have found that we all need a thread for sources of lighting fixtures.
I would request that if you have found a good source for lighting fixtures, please post a link to this thread. I for one am looking for High end, designer type lighting and have not found any good sources as of yet.If we all add a Web-Link to this thread we could develop a great resource for this subject.
Here are a few of what I have found.
Boat lights
http://www.iboats.com/mall/category_...id.216645.html
More boat lights
San Diego Marine Exchange: marine products, marine equipment, marine - Interior Lights
Eco-lights
Thin-Lite DC Lights & Iota DC Ballasts
Utilitarian
12 Volt Interior Exterior Fish House Lights, Accessories, Battery parts, Fans and Ceiling Fans, LED Lite
Lots of LED types
Interior light
Thanks for your help.

Here's a source I've used for Juno trak 12 lighting that I put in my TradeWind:

Trac 12 | Interior Lighting |Contemporary Lighting & Modern Lighting

Great stuff and free shipping.

Here's three!

www.ikea.com browse to lighting, they have a lot of 12V powered lights.
www.swego.com a great source for recessed and traditional 12V RV lights. I used 20 of their recessed 10W lights, and am very happy with them.
www.defender.com do a search for lighting. Their item number 700054 is a great looking wall mount light that will accept 12V large base screw in bulbs. Plus, defender's price is much less than from a vintage supplier.

We too are looking for interior lights over the coucho for our 1963 Bambi. Seems a previous owner decided to remove one. There are two on one side and one on the other. The one we have they call a bullet light that is mounted on the wall. It has a brass base with gold metal shade, adjustable, with stars punched in the shade. We've tried many. many places and they basicly tell us to replace them all. We'd like to keep it original. Any suggestoions? Bubbles

Bubbles - your coach was made that way with one of the fixtures on that side being 12 volt and the other 110 volt. Finding matching replacements is tough as they'll need to come from someone replacing theirs with a different style.

I took a look at Garys fishhouse link ,those LED lights are really
neat and would be unobtrusive as well ,put some in little areas around the
trailer to give some good lighting and keep the vintage look of the original fixtures .May have to go and order a couple .

Thanks all who answered me back. I think your right, we'll just have to waite and see what pops up down the road, lights that is. Inbetween, we'll do the upholstery work and curtains. AKways something to do. Still having fun. Bubbles

Interior Lights

I'm also redoing my interior and have chosen to use some LEDs from Suncor. These are very nice, not cheap, but very serious LEDs. IKEA has some nice stuff but I've found that some of their lights are not durable enough for trailer life. I have some on my 65 GT and when travelling make sure to take out the bulbs since they tend to fly around otherwise.

Try this link out. http://www.atafa.com/sports/advanced...rostar&x=0&y=0
