Inside Trailer Lights-LED

I got sick of the dim standard 921 mini ceiling bulbs so I replaced them with these today. I could never see anything in there. It would be impossible to work on a dirt bike in there.

They plug right into the existing base. No mods necessary. Much more light inside the trailer. Not cheap but they will last longer than I will own the trailer.

Thinking of mounting one or two of these LED Floods on the back of the trailer.
2000 lumens of white light!

i agree that they are pricey, but led lasts just about forever. And the added convenience of not having to convert any fixtures is great.

I like them, I saved the links for my possible future uses

The bulb replacement leds are shit. They don't last very long.

I'd be careful mounting them outside the trailer too. People know what they cost and will /do steal them.

so youre saying Im not going to get the 20,000 claimed hours out of these?

I was thinking of trying to flush mount the back lights somehow instead of them sticking up like antennas.
