I converted all of the interior LEDs in my trailer to these. I used to pay almost $10 a piece on amazon.com, but I found them cheaper on ebay directly from China. I have over 30 of them installed now and have had zero issues. They are delicate, but at that price I bought extras just in case. Make sure you buy the warm white ones, it's close to the regular incandescents you are use to.

I use these for the main areas of the living area. Make sure you get the warm white.

These are lower powered lamps that work well over bunks and the bedroom cabinet.

If you want, I can post before/after comparison pictures.

We went to that last Good Sam Rally in Daytona Beach and got a pretty good deal on LED lights, I bought a few to try and really like them. My DW did not like the 12v lights under the cabinets, she is short so when standing at the sink they about blind her. I replaced them with the LEDs, and now she is happy and I dont have to do the dishes anymore. (win,win situation)

Image 1 - The 15 LED (Warm White) bulb on the left, stock incandescent on the right. The LED is dimmer than the incandescent. We found that the incandescent bulbs were obnoxiously bright and we could only have two on at a time otherwise we would be blinded. With the LEDs we can turn on all of the fixtures and have a more pleasant diffuse light all over the camper. As an added bonus, the converter fan won't kick on with more than two lights on.


Image 2 - The 6 LED (Warm White) bulb on the left, and the 15 LED bulb on the right. We found the 15 LED bulb was still too bright for some locations such as the lights in the bunks and the overhead reading light over the queen bed. The 6 LED bulb was perfect there.

Even I am thinking of replacing my home lights with all led lights. What is the price of these lights?

I just installed a set of LED's that I bought on eBay, the ones that Accoster suggested. They replaced the 921 bulbs. They look great, can't beat the price, 10 for $27.50. They were sent from China and got here in ten days.

This is the link on eBay.

I replaced all my standard bulbs that came with the unit with LED bulbs from RVLEDBulb out of Mesa, Arizona. I used pure white and they are bright for sure. Reasonable price and warranty very good. Have had to have a couple replaced with no problems, simple exchange for new ones no additional charge either. www.rvledbulb.com. They are part of Neutek-USA.

I bought these direct ship from China. Took less than two weeks. Down to $1.71/bulb now. There is a $2 coupon, so you can get down to $1.51.

Very warm and bright. Kids left a couple lights in the bunkhouse on all day and the bulbs got warm and the residual resin setting softened up and dripped. Basically they set them in base with the same material as a hobby hot glue gun. Cleaned them up and no issues ever since. Other than those few bulbs no issues thus far. 24 5050 LEDS per bulb. I've ordered a few from Amazon and Ebay, these have been the brightest. I rolled the dice for less than $20 and it worked out for me thus far.

I'm the first to admit it if they peeter out, so I'll keep you posted.

I'd be happy to do a comparison test between the M4products and Command Electronics bulb if someone wants to send me one of each to match against the Amazon and AliExpress supplied bulbs.
