LED upgrade

As we look to do more boondocking this year, I'd like to start switching out the lights on our trailer to LED's. Does anyone have a good source for the replacement bulbs at a good price? Also does anyone know which ones to get - our trailer is a 2012. I can't look at it at the moment because it's in storage.

Oops, must have typed something in wrong when I tried to search ealier!

Found this thread that answered most of my questions.

Any other ideas on what is the brightest LED for the money? I'll probably get that 10-pack for my bunks and above the master bed - those lights are too bright for my tastes anyways. I would like the brightest possible for the 3 double fixtures down the middle of the trailer - I normally just use 1-2 of them unless more is needed.

Make sure you know your bulb base before ordering lights....

I can tell you that we are very happy with our cheap E-bay LED lights. 15 of them for $21. They are a "warm" light, flat panel LED with 48 LEDs. They come with multiple connectors for different bulb types. Ours are the 921 base. We never boon dock so for us it wasn't about saving power as much as the heat that comes off of those incandescent bulbs.
