Question Taillight Housing

I have a 1975 Argosy 26 foot motorhome, on the rear where the tail lights are mounted in some kind of plastic housing that goes clear acroos the rear. The problem is the mine has some cracks in it and I would like to know if and with what can it be fixed with.

Some ideas to try.

I too have plastic light housings on our trailer, although they don't run all across the rear like your do, they were nonetheless cracked. To repair the housings I simply mixed up some 5 min epoxy and brushed on several coats over the entire housing. After it dried, I lightly sanded and painted the housings and they've held up well for 2+ years now. No new cracks.
I'd suggest taping the whole thing off so no stray epoxy drips onto the trailer, it would be a pain to get off! --dave

Might even see if you can do without it or, there are lots of RV graveyards....

That part has not been available for many years.

You can fiberglass yours, or as some have done, remove it and change to different light bezels.
