HELP !! with tail light lens

Hello everyone !
I am having a very hard time finding a replacement amber tail light lens for my 1982 Class C Midas RV. It's a Bargman (Reflect-o- Lite) 1400 series. It doesn't have to be amber, I'll take a red one if amber isn't possible. If anyone has a source it would be greatly appreciated !!

Thank you,

Rinny 107

I just sold my 1982 Midas Class C last month. I do not remember any amber on the tail lights? Can you post a picture? I am guessing you will have to replace with another lens. Probably not a bad idea anyway. I had rebuilt parts of mine over the years and they were not is very good shape.

HI Rinny...you might have a hard time with a replacement. I saw this on another forum:

Tail Light Conversion - Electrical - Toyota Motorhome Discussion Board

According to them they are no longer made and you might have to make some modifications to get something else that is close. I don't mind searching the internet so and this came up towards the top. Good luck in your search.

I feel your pain.

I searched for this same amber reflect-o-lite lens last year. I also found out that the amber lenses are no longer being manufactured.

I was lucky though, after a lot of searching I eventually scored some "New Old Stock" in the UK and I immediately bought the 3 amber lenses they had in stock! Two for the back of the camper and one to tuck away, just in case.

I even posted a thread on it here on irv2 -

Bargman 1400 series (reflect-o-lite) Amber Replacement Lens

My word to you is, if you find some, buy them immediately and squirrel them away!!!

I bought a pair of red lenses from RVplus in the US last year for $8 a piece. I just checked their website and now they're saying the red lenses are discontinued!! AND the back up lights! Darn it!

BARGMAN COMP 34-14-010 - Bargman Taillight DISCONTINUED NO STOCK 1400 Red 34-14-010 - RV Plus

Look up the guy in the UK. He goes by the handle RVspares on eBay. You might get lucky! http://myworld.ebay.ie/rvspares/


FYI -

Bargman amber lens part number is 34-14-014
Bargman red lens part number is 34-14-010
Bargman red/white backup lens P/N 34-14-711

I'm glad I bought mine when I did!!

GOOD LUCK!
