Welcome to iRV2 and the vintage Newmar owners family .

Have to ask if the tail lights look like mine ? Photo below Bargman is the manufacturer.

Are you looking for a complete led replacement or just lenses ?

If they are the same as mine ( photo in first post ) I looked into the LED version and price made my gums bleed and hair fall out .

I redid the reflectors with foil tape , brightened them up considerably another member painted the reflector white to do the same .

Amazon carries them in Canada .

Google " Bargman led RV taillights "

Averaged $60+ CD each . never did see the corner wrap around light , but after I saw the other prices I didn't look to hard.

My same lenses were a bit dirty on the inside and I had a bulb out. Upon disassembly I found the black housings had a bit of galvanized metal for a reflector. I was unimpressed.
So I cleaned everything and then painted the inside of the housings flat white. I replaced the 1157 and 1156 standard taillight bulbs with basic LED upgrade bulbs. LED tag light bulb too. I did the driver's side first and took a picture at dusk for comparison.

if your cruise control won't come back on to set speed after you use your brakes with the led lamps installed in the all the brake light, the circuit needs a 6ohm 50watt resistor installed as a short across the brake lite hot lead and ground. that british cc is looking for voltage in the circuit to disconnect the cc system from the throttle. LEDs maintain some small voltage in the circuit for some time after it is turned off. the resistor bleeds the voltage quickly but doesn't affect led performance. that was my experience with it, and is only worth what you paid to hear it.
