Question scare/flood light

We need to replaced the entire unit, not just the lens and gasket for out scare light.
The inside of ours is rusted out and the previous owner fixed this by lineing it with foil as a reflector.....yeah.....also, the lens melted even though the correct bulb is in (I checked the number on the bulb with the manuals we have).
Inland RV has a lens but not the entire unit.
Thanks,
Crystal

If anyone knows where I could get red lenses for these, I'll give you one of my rivets.

4-1/8" Round Lens

But I'd check locally first. NAPA would be my first destination, but the closest NAPA to me is the supply warehouse for the entire state.

Awesome. I was looking for those lenses and missed that.. Hmm.
I owe you a rivet. I'll work on that.

I checked and I can't give you a rivet because you already have 5 and 5 is the limit.

I appreciate the thought, nonetheless.

It has been a long time since I bought one, but I seem to recall that it was harder to find a clear one than a red one. The red ones are pretty standard round tail light lenses. They're what is on my '67 Trade Wind. I found them at a local auto parts store near Austin, TX. Either Wimberley or San Marcos, so it wasn't something I really had to search for at the time.

I do need a new clear one, though, one of mine just broke Friday. I will be checking locally soon.

I just did a replacement a few weeks ago. I got the lens and the unit. It came from Airstream #500092 Floodlight and Lens. Not sure they will sell it they may want you to go through a dealer. I got some parts numbers on a few items and they shipped the key and the light but none of the other things. I was buying a key that was hard to get at the time. I believe that vintage airstream also has it but they are saying for a older trailer. Its all the same as far as I can tell. It was used as a backup or light on the back of trucks also.
Porch Light
The light was $8.00 cheaper from Airstream.
