Source for 12V light covers for older Winnies?

Does anyone even still make 'em? I have an '86 Elandan that needs a few covers. I could replace the lights, but I'd rather go back as stock as I can. Thanks!

Thanks Jerry! That's gotta be one of the most confusing and hard to navigate/search web pages I've ever seen, but hopefully they carry what I'm looking for. I'll give it a shot!

I assume you are referring to the interior ceiling light fixtures, with the square plastic lens covers? If so, and your source doesn't work out, let me know, and I'll get you the address of a place up in Pendleton Or, where I bought my replacements...

I've spent the morning searching the web for replacement 12volt light fixtures. We aren't crazy about the ones that came with the rig and we are looking for something more our taste to replace them with. Does anyone have any suggestions for suppliers? And, do any 12volt fixtures work? I found a few I like at Lamps Plus, but I'm really dumb about electrical issues.

If you are looking for original Winnebago stuff, check this place out. RV Mobility Just get a Winnebago parts book from a dealer or right from RV Mobility and give them a call. Yes they answer the phone and they have parts for my '73. Les

Yep, those are the ones I need! I looked everywhere else, and then ended up finding out that my local RV sales/service shop can order 'em for me for next to nothing. Thanks for the offer though!

We just bought some excellent brushed nickel fixtures with alabaster shades on ebay- much better prices than the RV dealers, super quick shipping out of Indiana

Thanks Chief.. might I ask if they were "RV"specific fixtures or regular household fixtures? Had not thought about eBay I'll look there now.

These are 12v fixtures that look like household fixtures. This was the seller on ebay ; rvaccessories215

We were quite happy with both the quality of the fixtures and the seller.

They are manufactured by Progressive Dynamics and are available on tweetys.com for $3.25 for a two pack, but shipping costs are outrageous.
