Porch light cover for T-1661

We recently purchased a 1984 T-1661 Sunline trailer. It is in really great shape but missing the porch light cover. The plastic piece that covers the light bulb. We have looked at local rv dealer parts department and online but can't seem to find it anywhere. Also searched this forum. Anybody have any ideas? Thanks!! (I have a picture but no idea how to add it! LOL)

Is your lens like this one? If so I made a mold of the one off my '83 T-1550. The grey master is the original lens (which was in real bad shape) reworked to allow me to cast a new lens.

I may have another one. I had to experiment with the frosted tint in the lens. If indeed it is the same lens as yours I could send it to you for the cost of shipping and maybe a couple dollars for part. To make the master, molds, resin,tint and labor is way more than I could ever hope to charge.

I put the picture of the light as my signature. Not sure how to post a picture another way. I could make one at work but was hoping to find one that actually goes with the trailer. Thanks, I appreciate it.

Yours looks to be the next generation. Mine, the grab handle goes across the lens. See the channel in lens for this. the grab handle is attached by screws top and bottom of bezel.

You're right. Yours looks different. I see your photo link now, thanks. I work at an auto glass factory so I'm sure I can make something up to fit if all else fails.

Your picture is really small, I'm having a hard time seeing it, and I'm not sure if it's the same as mine on our 1985. If it's like this one, it's called a Lighted Bargman. You can google it and find just the lens cover or the whole thing. I need one too.

Hope this helps.

Another thing you could do is measure your actual lens frame, where the lens clips in. You can go to automotive or auto suppliers and get an aftermarket light, opaque or amber and remove the plastic lens from that light and rework it into your frame. Buy a cheap light initially so if you booboo it won't be an expensive proposition.
My porch light tends to be right under one of the frame rails for the awning, so when I close up the awning there is next to no clearance. If yours is the same that may have been what caused your problem. So be careful when building a new lens that the lens sits flat or shallow to clear the awning rail.

Also, I found the inside light bulb fixture was sort of rotting, so this year I removed the original light bulb fixture and replaced everything with an LED light. and used epoxy to fasten it. Many mile of travel this summer and all is fine.
