Who made my headlight assembly?

I have a 1998 National Tradewinds 7370 and I'm having problems with the assembly that holds the headlights. Do you know which model auto/truck it came off of?

If you look at the edge of the lens, you should see some numbers and maybe letters. Search on those.

That's how I found out our Sunstar headlights are from a Ford ranger.

Looking at a Google image search, looks like standard 5x7 sealed beams lights?

Threads here at don't seem to come up with much either. Mentioned a few times, maybe a generic H4 Euro stlye 5x7 conversion? These Autopal lights were mentioned.

I know when Winnebago used the old sealed beam 4x6 bulbs the mounting hardware was the same as a 70's Buick or something. Fact is the mounting system for those didn't change much over the years. Maybe some parts from a late model truck that uses 5x7 sealed beams would work for you? Low end vans and pickups still use them.

Find the numbers on the plastic lens and google them. Should come up with make and model. Do you have a picture of them? We can play guessing

There's got to be a part number on that headlight pot somewhere. If it starts with a 6E13az5d or some such thing its Ford. If it's a 7 digit number its likely GM. but thats just a long shot. FInd that part number and go from there? Is it rusted out?
