Headlight bracket rusted

I have a 1998 Fleetwood Southwind Storm with both the headlight brackets rusted away. Is their a source for a replacement?

Most motorhomes borrow headlight and tail light assemblies from other higher production vehicles (cars, vans, pickup trucks, medium duty trucks, etc.) if you post a photo of your old headlight assembly perhaps someone will recognize it.

As an example my 2002 Safari Trek uses tail lights from a 92-94 E150 van, and headlights from a 90-99 International 4700 truck

That information is encouraging. I thought RV body parts were close to non-existence. Can't get a picture because everything would fall apart if I mucked with it. Best to leave it alone until I can replace it.

Hopefully someone else had this problem and found a solution.
