Thumbs up Light Bulb Source Found

My '67 Overlander requires two certain light bulbs, an 1141F, and an 1176, which proved impossible to find locally. All the big, on-line companies sold one, but not the other.

I have finally found a "Mom & Pop" place in Missouri called AMT Electrical who sold me both bulbs for a ridiculously low price. We're talking 16 to 18 cents a piece. I ordered a total of 40 light bulbs which were UPSed to my door for a grand total of $10.36.

Their website does not list prices, but they do have a 1-800 number. Rosemary was quite helpful.

BTW, the 1141F, a frosted version of the common 1141, is now designated as 1141IF. The version sold to me by AMT Electrical looks different than I was expecting, but works just fine in my Overlander. The new bulb is on the right in the picture below.

Thanks for the link and they are right up the road from me! Now my trailer doesn't have a bulb, not one, in it. How the heck do I determine what I need? I learned from a previous RV experience that these bulbs aren't a one size fits all, get it at Walmart sorta thing...

Post some pictures of your light fixtures with and without the lenses. If they look like mine, I will tell you which light bulb(s) my owner's manual lists.

eljay,

Your overhead light fixture appears to be a rectangular version of mine (mine is square). My fixture uses the frosted light bulb 1141F, now sold as 1141IF. I think those bulbs would work nicely in your fixture.
