Question looking for brake lights and back up lights

I need 2 brake lights and 2 back up lights. (2 red 2 clear) Lenses also. Does anyone know where I can get these? One RV dealer said I could use the lights that are currently being used on new Airstreams. $119.00 a piece. 1974 Landyacht

Not sure about the lights but I have a 74 L/Y also. What length is yours? Mine is a 27'er. I don't have pics yet. Maybe we can swap info, for example if it looks like somethings missing/shoulda' gone in that spot. Debi

They are still using the old style clear lenses on the new trailers as "porch lights", so it should still be available from Airstream parts.

Is there a manufacturer name and part number on the lenses? Airstream used a lot of Grote, very common in heavy trucks. They have a website or you should be able to find a local truck supply outfit that can order them.

Round or square

I think yours are square but if they are round, there is a set on sale at EBAY.

74 trailers used "Monarch" tail and backup lights. They are square.
Most Airstream dealers should have them, but unfortunately, they don't.
Dealers that specialize in vintage as well as the older trailers will have them.

I've tried for other items. They may have the lenses and their prices and shipping are very good.
