Where do you get your LED bulbs?

I want to put led bulbs in my trailer but they're rediculously expensive at your average stealership. I presume most buy them on line. Which brand, type and what website/vendor did you use?

Hi PhyerPhyter, Try superbrightleds.com. They have led lights for most any applications including replacements for incandescent bulbs. Prices are reasonable too.

I've bought several sets from eBay. I shop for the bulb type, color and lumens rating, then pick a vendor that has a good rating. Over the last 4-ish years I've bought 4 or 5 times from various vendors for 2 rigs and have had good results. 2 out of a dozen or so have failed in the last batch but I've always ordered extra. Guessing this last batch is of a lower quality. They all were shipped direct from China and arrived in a week or ten days as I recall. Prices vary but are in the $1 - 3 each IIRC.

What Redhorse said. Check lumens, color, and bulb type and throw the dice. A lot of them are direct China so it'll take a bit to get them. They're usually reasonably priced but some are designed better than others. Most of them have free shipping which I suspect is subsidized by their homeland.

Amazon has a plethora to wade through, and they are very cheap. But buy extra - in the two dozen I bought, several failed right away. Some of the others have bases that are intermittent in making contact in the sockets, so judicious tweaking of the contacts got them going. So, some futzing - but since I save a huge amount of $$, it seems like a decent trade off.

x2 for ebay, but I try to buy Canadian or American, seems like they are better quality. Always check brightness and color.

When you guys say, check brightness, color or lumens? What is it we want, what color is the best? What brightness and do hou use the same colored bulb and brightness throughout the trailer?

When looking for LED's they have all kinds of colors red green blue etc. And essentially 2 whites. Bright white or cool white which has a crisp bright white, or warm white which is the yellowish white. They will also have a number of SMD, which is surface mounted diodes or basically number of lights on the bulb, so 24 smd is brighter than 5 smd. Usually there will be a measurement in lumens too which is just brightness as well. EBAY sellers usually do a good job with descriptions, just make sure you check all the variables before ordering or you might not get what you want.

Thanks for the replies. However I'm not a fan of EBay. What brightness, color etc do you suggest? Last time I was in my trailer most of the bulbs were, iirc, were 921 and maybe a few 194's. I already found a lower wattage 921 (I think) for the lights over the bed. But like I said, I want to replace all with led's. My trailer is an '06 27BH.
