I have used LEDS in all sorts of applications, where they make sense from a longevity, asthetic, or power consumption standpoint. They are still pretty pricey, but are steadily coming down in price as the market, and volumes, and competition picks up. I don't boondock, so I haven't used them on interior applications in my AS, but they're fine. Go for it.

Do a search and you will come up with many LED users. I plan on some interior LED's for my renovation. A negative that I have heard is that some of them have a 'cold' colored light kind of bluish. There are LED's that advertise being a 'warm' light more like incandescent.

Here is one of the original and most thorough threads on this topic, tons of info here going back several years, but with fairly recent updates too:

Here's what I've installed, hi warm light output - see some pics on thread mentioned in above post on page (3)...

LEDTrailerLights.com - RV LED interior ceiling light 1141 1156 1003 warm white

I see where LED trailer lights now have an even brighter 1141 replacement - just released...looks intriguing for backup lights, etc...

Dan@LED4RV.com has an informative website that shows what various LED light types replace original halogen, florescent and incandescent lights. Here's his website: LEDs 4, Recreational Vehicles We have replaced all the interior halogen and incandescent lights in our Bambi as well as the exterior patio light and step light. (We never had any florescent lights.) Bright White vs Warm Light a personal choice ... most seem to like the warm light best. We prefer the bright white option... but that's us. It makes a huge difference in power consumption. LEDs are still pricey but worth it...and the cost will come down over time.
