New headlights

When I went down to Larry's Auto Clinic in Myrtle Beach to have the Break recall performed, I met IRV2 member Driver their. First thing I noticed was how great his headlights were compared to mine. Got me thinking, and ordered a set of 2003 Impala headlights from Amazon. Arrived in 2 days. Took 20 minutes to remove old and install new. Hardest thing was finding the little plastic piece that must be pulled up to remove lights. Should have done this long time ago. Well worth it.https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

New headlights sure make an older rig look nice. Foggy yellow headlights on a car or motorhome is very distracting and functionally less effective.....kinda like cataracs on us old folks.


DriVer and I bought Xtralights that have the more modern HID projector lights with LED halos driving light. They also put out more light. But the price is $305/pair, significantly more than $95 stock replacements.

The headlights for the Winnebago are actually the chevy impala headlights, you'll get more hits with this

these are the ones I bought

These look great, and it looks likely a pair of one of these will go on my 05 Adventurer.

The question I have is how did you figure out that Winnebago used Chevy Impala light fixtures? I figure there is some type of standard identification scheme for this, just I have not figured it out.

Can tail light assemblies and third brake lights be identified in a similar manner?

New headlights

LOTS of threads on Identifying headlights and such. Our vintage Adventurers use Ford Focus wagon taillights. And a generic third brake light.

Duner, these look nice and additional light would be nice, are the light assemblies all one piece, or is there an additional part for the HID that you need to secure somewhere? I noticed on the website there are different options for the HID, did you go for the standard one or one of the higher performance lights?
