Side mount Docking (Guide) Lights

I would like to add some side Docking Lights to my 2005 Beaver. I saw these "factory" Docking lights on a 2005 Dynasty which will work nicely on my Beaver if I can find them.

Are these available anywhere?

I have also seen some marine style docking light that would probably work - but I thought I'd check here first. As I know the Dynasty lights will fit the Beaver.

Google can be your friend.

Many styles, types of lights available. Not a difficult job to install and connect.

I did Google for it, and did not find the same model used on the Dynasty. As I said, I found several that might work - and just want to see if the Monaco lights are available and if so, how much $.
Thanks for the link.

Almost look like standard porch lights that lots of places sell.

It could be. I thought it looked smaller than the porch light I have now. Maybe someone that owns a coach with this light installed can measure it.

If nothing turns up from this thread. I may just get these (and install pointing downward so I can see the tire/curb area) - however I want a more of a flood light pattern than a spot light pattern.

I would think Northwest RV would likely have them.
Also salvage yards such as:

RV Salvage Parts | Visone RV | Motorhomes And Repairable Wrecks | Used RV Parts Monaco RV Parts | Prevost RV Parts | Holiday Rambler Parts | Alfa Visone RV Junk Yard - RV Dismantler | en.visonerv.com

I had those on my Signature, they worked but honestly, could use about 5 of them per side to actually help when maneuvering. I had 2 per side.

My new coach has similar to what you posted as an alternative but slightly different, they use fog light bulbs and are a joke honestly. Absolutely astonishing that companies use them even today.

I tried nwrvspply - they don't have any listed.

And thanks for the salvage yard link. i would love to spend a day exploring that yard.

Looking at those RV wrecks it sure looks like a lot of them are at that salvage yard because they have had a fire. Scary.

Mike, just an idea, fit and finish may not be the best but this is the style for most MH.https://www.ebay.com/i/321629210940?chn=ps

Thanks for taking the time to look into finding me something. I appreciate the help but I only want a surface mount light. I don't mind a small hole for the electrical but I'd rather not make any large cuts for the light to fit into.

I am almost positive I just saw those some place, just can't remember where. About the only outlet or accessory store I have been in recently was the LazyDays accessory store in Tampa. I can't imagine they would not have them in either the retail part of the store or available behind the parts counter. Of course, behind the parts counter, well, get ready!

Mike,
I'm curious what you end up going with. With LED's available, (not available, or very expensive when my coach was built), often they are much brighter and use less power than an incandescent or halogen bulb.

I have the built in docking lights on the side towards the rear (someone posted a picture earlier) that were OEM, but I've since added LED's up front (side) and LED's on the back. It's really nice to have a lot of light when you need it.
