Need new interior lights-what do I do?

My Argosy has no working interior lights. It was stripped, or else much abused by prior PO's. I need some help. Do I go all new florescent, do I buy new 12 volt lights and put in LED's no LED's? We do not want to go to off the grid parks, so battery consumption is not primary. Good light for old tired eyes is more important. Thoughts?

I am using a combination in mine. The main fixtures are either getting replaced or upgraded with fluorescent lights, reading type lights are going LED along with some LED rope light for mood lighting.

I went to Ebay for ideas and maybe finding something that I like. I came up with some good 'uns . Check under collectables ...etc.

I am in the process of restoring an Avion C-11 camper, and I'm going 100% LED lights inside and out. I use the camper on it's own battery power, so power consumption is important. I was going to try to convert my existing lighting, but I just can't find any parts, so I'm replacing everything.
