It's actually raining/snowing here today. :(
I was travelling this weekend, seen a fair number of trailers on the road.......most where being transported.

I'll be bringing mine home in a couple of weeks to get it ready for May Long Weekend. And now I have led lights to install! :)

My wife's aunt is storing her new hybrid at our house. Yesterday they came over and put an Equalizer hitch on it.
Been stocking up on firewood.
Got new sewer hoses.
Have about a dozen trips booked and seems like we add more each day.
Got the RV Pa state inspection last week.
Ordered the LED bulbs discussed in another thread and got them today and put them in. Then i came in the house and ordered 6 more. A great buy at $1 each and $1.59 shipping.http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=300533926397&viewitem=&sspagename=STRK%3AMEWNX%3AIT#ht_2129wt_1165
So yes...we are getting ready for camping

We've still got a ton of snow on the ground and the trailer will be in storage for a little while yet. The 8" that we got last weekend certainly aren't helping matters any. Like Pat, I've seen lots of new units getting delivered, but very few being driven around by their owners. May Long's booked and I hope we can get out once or twice before that if this snow ever goes away. Winter just doesn't seem to want to end around here.

What can I say? They are flat panel LED's with a sticker side to them. Stick them with the led's facing down, choose the right adapter, and you have light. I thought I would have to get clear lens covers for my lights, but these are plenty bright. I'll try to get some pictures tonight. These aren't your high quality, $25 bulbs, but I am happy with them, especially for what I spent for them.

I'll have the $15 lights installed in a few weeks when I bring the trailer home.
We'll have to compare results and see if there is any difference.
Hopefully the ebay ones are just as good! ;)

I see those ship from Hong Kong. How long did they take to show up? I might order some at that price.

Since I bought my trailer back on Nov. 2010 I been out only 2 times to go shopping down in Boise, ID or Ontario, OR... But I'm itchy to get rolling for a actual camping trip. But the weather here is rainy and nasty. Then the snow in the high country still hasn't melted yet so camping in the woods is rather difficult to do yet...
