My trailer came with LED brake lights. I replaced all of my running lights with equivlent from Superbright LEDs. They have worked well.

eBay can be a good place too. There are many LED sellers; my favorites are TMILED, saving_grace_supply, and closertowholesale. For my upper/outer rear clearance lights, I got 2-way double bullseye fixtures and connected them to the brake/turn circuit.
It seems I love the mountains and deserts more than my friends do. I sure miss them!

I can second (or third or fourth)

I just replaced all of my running lights on the top and sides of the Safari with LEDs. The amber are not quite as bright as the bulbs that were there, but the red ones, are phenominal.

I also replaced the spotlight, step light, plate light and the hitch jack light with LED bulbs.

These run extremely cool compared to the bulbs and they use next to no power.

Before I had to have a 10a fuse when I ran my lights by putting the fuse in the 7 wire. Now, I can get by with a 5a fuse or smaller and there is NO arcing.....

I bought my markers at Super Bright LEDs - Tail Brake/Turn Bulbs. I got my brake/turns from Andy, though I have not yet installed the brake lights. I was very happy with what I got form this source.

I bought my amber and side red marker lights at LED-R-US LED'S FOR CARS, TRUCKS, SUV'S, TRAILERS, MOTORCYCLE, SEMI TIRE TOOLS but had to modify them slightly since they were one wire models. They are pretty bright. I bought my last three red marker lights for the top rear of the trailer from Led Truck Lights, Led stop lights, Led clearance lights, led Marker lights, Led trailer lights, truck lights, led strobe lights which had two wires, did not have to be modified and had 14 leds rather than the 12 of the previous lights. Actually, the lights from led-r-us seem brighter and the ones from vehiclelight seem to have a more ruby red color to them. You can't go wrong with either one but the vehiclelight ones were easier to install.
