For the couple different ways of reading your question, I see neither the plastic cover nor that size bulbs at either Inland RV or Vintage Trailer Supply. I'd think it would be fairly straightforward to find the bulbs in your area -- are they about the size of a fridge or stove bulb? Standard base? The plastic cover might be very difficult if not at Inland or VTS.

Does that answer your question?

That lens has not been available for some 20 years or more.

Part of the problem in trying to recreate that lens, is that it is so thin, that a very special mold would need to be created that would cost over $20,000.00.

That would price the lenses out of our planet.

We manufacture some of the lenses for the older trailers, but we cannot make them as thin as yours needs to be.

Most people change out the light fixture and install a 12 volt fluorescent light.
