1962 Globetrotter Exterior Lights

I've got a 1962 globetrotter and I need some help with lights. I've found the side marker lights and what I believe is the taillights(bargman 99). Found them at vintage trailer supply. If you have used these are they correct for my trailer? But my real question is where can I find the three above the window lights on front and rear? And also the two lights on front below window? And the last final question is anywhere that would have these in all led? Also I'd like to keep everything as period correct as possible. Thanks

By no means authentic , something like this might at least be sympathetic

Isn't this the right light? Click on the lens for the rest of it.

There are a number of good replacement bulbs. I haven't used LED's for them, but a friend has used M4Led with good luck. I have found a lot of variation in quality in LED bulbs -- quality and power consumption.

If you are talking about the teardrop lights VTS has them. There are no led versions. Some people say you can use LED bulbs but there are a couple of problems with them. First the type of light they emit is not directional. Second they are very sensitive to water and need to be used in a completely watertight environment. I made mine LED using the directions in the thread below but it's kinda a Macguyver fix . I wish someone did make a period correct looking teardrop light!

I found out what it was. Could have swore it was a light but finally made my way up there to remove them for more info. The previous owner had installed reflectors. Made me sick. Just drilled strait into the aluminium and from the years of sitting had corroded out completely behind them.

Just a heads up about the Vintage Trailer Supply teardrop lights.....they're in the works of making LED ones with a stainless steel back. Colin Hyde told me at Alumapalooza in May & I got ahold of VTS to see when they'll be out. Should be pretty soon. My regular ones are cheap & don't always keep a good connection to the bulbs. Might be worth the wait before settling for the junky ones! I'm changing mine out when the come out! :-)
