I thought about LEDs, but in the end went with the BlueOX BX8869 Bulb And Socket Tail Light Wiring Kit. Camper Parts, Camper Supplies, RV Parts, RV Supplies: RVupgradestore has it for $48.96. The brightness is comparable to the OEM lights.

Roadmaster Bulbs

I used the stock incandescent bulbs that came with the Roadmaster kit. I thought they were plenty bright. You certainly could replace them with LED bulbs though. The advantage, in addition to a potentially brighter bulb, would be longer life. Those tail lights are so easy to get off though I really wasn't worried about replacing a bulb.

Are those bulbs using a 1506 base? I think I will add LEDs for the quicker response time and being brighter.
