Assuming you have the 921 incandescents like I have in mine, I think these match the closest as far as color and brightness.
I have some of these also. I like them but they are not quite as bright.

I did the complete conversion and purchased the bulbs from Amazon. They have quite a selection, but here are the ones I choose. I have both the 921 and the 1156 type bulbs.

It's an expensive conversion, but I think the benefits are worth it.

Good luck!

I used those in all but three of my light fixtures. $20 for two packages did the entire camper. As you said, they are not as bright, but I like them. The three main light fixtures, I used my complete replacement LED fixtures that I had saved from my previous RV. They are quite bright. I believe I bought those at Camping World, and spent way too much on them. I would guess the bulbs in your first link would be similar to those.

I used the same 921 LED bulbs. I bought some in 280 and 190 Lumen. Can't really tell the difference between the two, but both are very bright, very white and significantly cooler than the halogens I replace.

Here is a link to my review with pictures.

We replaced the 921 light in our outdoor light with one of these panels from CW and are very happy with the light we get now. These panels are very bright. Instead of a glow by the back door the light now illuminates out about 25 feet from the trailer.

They also have one that has 4 or 5 fewer LED's that might be better for an interior light.
