Newmar might have them but you could save some money by goggling clearance light and match them up with what is shown. Make sure you seal the new units well. Many leaks in roof area in the front have found out it was the clearance lights that were leaking.

This is the manufacturer that is on my '97 and probably yours too. Have to scroll down and find the low profile models. I paid less that $5 each for the complete light kit - I stayed with incandescent because they light up better than the LED (I have a buddy that replaced his with LED and was disappointed in the how they looked at night and went back the incandescent bulbs).

Hi dutch99,
The lens may have a DOT number on it. Google this number and you will have choices.

We have a 2000 Dutch Star. We ordered both front and rear marker lights from Newmar. Replaced all of them. Looks much nicer. The old ones were discolored, and in many cases crumbling from age. The worst part of replacing them was removing all the silicone that had been applied over the years. Nice inexpensive upgrade.

Where can i get the lights?
I replaced all front and rear on my 03 Dutchstar from this supplier. Good product, fair price, fit like a glove.
Remove the old fixtures. Clean up the old caulking real well. I used a Marine Grade Clear Silicone to seal the new ones. Run a generous bead around the back of the fixture, set it in place and run the two screws down just so the Silicone is compressed to within 1/8" or so from the body. Let them sit overnight and snug the screws up. Done.

CAUTION...... when removing the old lens, tie off the wiring before cutting so it doesn't slip down inside on you. That can give you slightly swollen blood vessels if you drop a wire.....

I wish I would have read this thread a couple of days ago. Yesterday, I spent several hours going from store to store looking for replacement lights. I ended up buying some small surface LED lights and making a white plastic adapter plate to mount them. I haven't checked the back ones yet to see if they were leaking. Front ones should of but the insulation was dry behind them.

The ones from Superbrite are half that and, a much nicer light with the chrome bezel.
