need help locating tail light part. 76 dodge

well went to get my motorhome at the storage lot on Saturday, and it was vandalized! among the things I have to cleanup on the inside and replace, the only thing on the outside was the tail lights. I NEED HELP locating the bases
if anyone has a set of these bases( I have extra lens) I would be interested. maybe you know of a rv in a junk yard that has these tail lights, wasting away

Passenger side, I can cleanup, I got it working again.

the drivers side is beyond repair.



part number on the back of the base is MIRO-Flex 350, Miro-Flex 360 is the part number of the lens'

Just a picture of our setup

thanks, I have seen those, the way my RV body contour is my current bases are offset between top and bottom, i'm afraid with the ones you posted those will point down, but if I can't find the needle in the hey stack, I might end up with those kind

Sorry to hear of your vandalism. Here's a couple of links:
Miro-Flex #341 Tail light with Back-Up (RH & LH) - Taillights - Lighting - Electrical
Miro-Flex® - #341 Tail Light

Here's a pretty complete list of RV salvage yards:
RV Salvage/Surplus Yards (List) Updated 7/7/15 - RV Forums - myRVparks.com

Also, the SAE number next to the MIRO-Flex 360 is better used to identify the light fixture.

thanks Bflinn, I have started reaching out to salvage places and done a nation wide CL search for guys parting these old girls. few promising leads but nothing so far.


I updated the add to list the lens part number as well which you are correct is the 360


the 340 and341 all are flush mount which puts me back to same thought with the style mel suggested. but those are cheaper, just not sure how the metal on metal would do, guess I could put some of that green rv tape caulks stuff they have...thinking out loud here

Hi running into similar problems with my '72 Robin Hood. Your best bet is finding something readily available and customizing a mounting to fit your siding pattern. Would be a little work, but easier than searching for the "needle". One of the reasons I decided on complete rebuild with new materials.
Good Hunting!

These might work a wedge base is also available that should get them at the right
angle.

thanks guys, I think i'm going to have to go the "new" route then have a buddy make me a base with the contour I need. it seems the new lights are all flush mount

at least the LED are, which is what I plan to go to. hopefully no wiring issues there
