Pay close attention to color, light output, and quality. In my trials, I confirmed once again that you get what you pay for and it is beneficial to have a vendor who can help you through the tangle. That's why lots of folks like Dan at LED4RV.com. I bought from him as well as Amazon. I did some tests and trials to get the color and outputs I wanted for various fixtures and then mixed and matched to get what I wanted. I changed all mine to LED including overheads, reading, closets, stove, shower, outside, . . . .

I understand the shop around to get the lowest price thing. I'm as cheep as the next guy. However there is nothing like customer service vs customer no-service (to quote Clark Howard).
I ordered from LED4RV. I had one light fail in the first couple days. Then another one. I called Dan. He asked all the right questions and walked me through testing my system. Talk about GREAT customer service. As it turned out, my 1974 univolt was putting out to much voltage. After I replaced it with a new progressive I have not had a light go yet and that was 4 years ago.
I don't know if his prices are higher but I'm willing to pay a bit more for good customer service.

I replaced essentially all bulbs with LEDs in both trailers. Got the first 4 bulbs from LED4RV but the rest off ebay averaging $1.50 ea. No lamp changes required. Most ebay sellers indicate which replacement LEDs to use for existing bulbs.

I did have to correct the polarity on 2 Bambi 2 lamps that were reverse wired.

I would as stated above, call Dan at LED4RV! His customer service is second to none. I order a pair of ceiling lights in bright white. They were to bright for my taste. Called to order replacement bulbs and they just sent me the new and I returned the old. Dan would be my first call.

As Dan is a friend (LED4RV.com) , so I may be biased. LEDs on the market have huge variations in quality and to have to send them back and hope for a replacement (some companies require you pay for all postage) is a big hassle. I have converted one Airstream (2009 27FB Int) and one Tiffin Allegro Bus (2010 43 QGP). Thus about $1500 on LED conversion experience.

Ninety percent came from Dan after I had several other suppliers give me LEDs which quickly failed or were very dim. Dan tests his before shipping them out and if there is a failure, quite rare, he will replace these with no hassle.

IMO, it is worth the money to purchase the best one can, having purchased a lot of stuff on the internet with some very disappointing suppliers in years past.

I am a big supporter of Dan @ LED4RV. I recently went to LEDs on my AS and he was very helpful in guiding me appropriately.

How many Internet stores give you that kind of customer service? Heck, How many local stores still give you that kind of customer service?

I admit to knowing nothing about LEDs ----- except what I like.

So I emailed Dan, told him what I had, and what I liked.. He sent me LEDs to replace the halogens in my kitchen hood. I had not know they weren't LEDs until I burn myself on them. Dear Hubbie installed the new LEDs and I am very happy.

Just keep in mind (bulbnumber)S is single end, and D is the dual. e.g. 1141S or1141D, one versus two contact points. I bought mine on ebay for $1.35 apiece.
