    Did the same abt 6 yrs. ago. All still working, too. ( big eBay user)
    We even replaced the outside side light by the steps since we dry camp often and that step light is nice.
    Happy Camping!

    Ive been contemplating getting a couple magnetic mount work lights (oval looking led lights at harbor freight) and just sticking them to the metal ceiling supports.

    The post right above yours is the amazon link. Post 25. They fit my 2000 Coleman Westlake camper.

    In my case the fixtures were cheaper than the bulbs. The result was LED fixtures that were brighter using the single setting, and twice as bright as the incandescents when using the double. I got the LED lighting from Amazon for $7.99 per fixture.

    Sure probably very good, but why spend more?

    I bought my bulbs from Amazon, others have bought from Ebay. I just looked for ones that had a warmer temp so they were closer in color to incandescent bulbs which I prefer, and I got ones that had a voltage range instead of the straight 12V ones. They seem to be more resistant to voltage fluctuations that you see in a 12V system, been a couple years and no failures yet. Made a huge difference in mine.

    Yep, looks like Amazon has better pricing than colemanpopupparts.com!
