'70s Bedroom Reading Light Bulb Replacement

Hello,

I have these awesome fixtures over the bed in my '78 sovereign but I can't find replacement bulbs. The ideal bulb would be LED, but I could live with incandescent. They're an 1156 style but they're longer and have frosted lenses.Click image for larger version

Try LED4RV if you can't find it on the website email and ask them. Great customer service.

I sure you could find them at SOB rv shop. That's where I found mine. Vintage Trailer Supply carries them as well.

The lights in my Tradewind are referenced as #1383. The common name is Elevator Bulb.
As you found the 1156 is shorter but won't project past the end of the housing.
A quick Google search found this LED replacement
https://www.1000bulbs.com/product/65...P-138341K.html
I would check the dimensions of the housing and bulb before ordering. My originals are a very close fit.

Those funnel shaped bulbs are # 1383.

Parts stocking Airstream dealers have them.
