Original lighting question

Good morning ! Remembering all of the Veterans who have served our country today . Thank you all not just today , but every day !
We are new to the forum & new to our Airstream 1967 30' International as well ! The first of many questions is : we have most of the original lighting, however , also have 3 lights that have screw in type bulbs (25 watt ) -- Are these original or have they been added ? I cant find them in any photos ---
Thank you !
Lisa

Lisa.

Please post a photo of the bulb or fixture.

Airstream last used screw in bulbs, in 62 or 63.

Since then the bulbs are held in place with 2 tabs that are on the sides of each bulb base.

pictures of lights

Here are the pics -
they are on either side of the front overhead cabinet, and beside the stove fan. Wired up with what looks like an extention cord & plugged in - the one by the fan is hard wired with a similar cord. Also another strange light over the bed -?
Thank you!
Lisa

Lisa.

Those lights were not installed by Airstream.

They are an after market light installed by a previous owner.

Hi Lisa, The picture I posted above is an example of the original light for a 67. Take a look here for more examples of your Airstream. 67Sovereign

You can cover the holes with holiday decorations, as each different holiday approaches.

Or, photo's of loved ones, works too.
