Headlight Database

I think I'm finally ready to introduce a resource I've been working on for a little while. I usually hang out over on the HDT forum, since I haven't had a class A motorhome in a number of years. But when I did, I was underwhelmed by its headlights. Unfortunately for me, that motorhome was an orphan, and I didn't figure out what vehicle the lights were from until after I'd sold it.

 

Most motorhomes make use of headlights off of passenger cars or light trucks, and in many cases can be very inexpensive directly from auto parts suppliers. The challenge is often in figuring out what they are--which is what I'm compiling here. Right now I've just gone through a few brands, and am putting together pages for each type of light with OE part numbers, aftermarket part numbers, and eventually will have information on upgrades (housings or wiring, where applicable). That information is being put together at RVheadlights.org

 

Whether your RV is listed or not, the site at this stage will likely still be able to benefit from confirming what you have, pictures, etc. If you're able to help, or make use of what's there, great!

 

If your motorhome isn't listed, or is listed but without it's own page with photos, I'd appreciate your help! See the Welcome post, or send me an e-mail at contributions@rvheadlights.org.

 

Any feedback, thoughts on organization, requests for help finding things, general lighting questions, etc. are all welcome.

I'm betting that the list for Holiday Rambler is pretty similar to same year Monaco's. Have you posted this on iRV2 on the Monaco owner thread? Lots of info there

 

Not yet--I'm trying to make progress getting more makes and models listed before I post it too many places. I've been stuck in Winnebagoland for a while now--they seem to change model names and the front caps of their motorhomes more than anyone else. Doesn't help that they've been making them since the dawn of the industry either!

 

I also expect that when I get into some of the orphaned brands and brands that have changed ownership recently (like Monaco) I may struggle to find brochures from the manufacturer to clearly identify when models changed. I'm going to be relying a lot more heavily on communities like this one to contribute their own information.

 

And if you don't find your RV, let me know!!

I have a 2001 Holiday Rambler Endevaor 36' gasser, Headlights really yellow,Was looking to replace them,So wrote down the numbers on the lens and went to CARiD.com and found out they are same as 97 Ford Explorer. Ordered both headlights and both parking lights for a little over $100.00. Vets also get 10% discount.
