Question Replacement light fixture for '95 Roadtrek 190.

I am looking for a low profile replacement for the head scalping light fixture in the rear of the van. The attached picture is what I have now. It is a 12 volt circular fluorescent tube fixture. All the small LED fixtures I have looked at have a limited area coverage. Has anyone found a good replacement for this type?

I bought this:

I reused the switch from the old light (mine looked like yours, 99 Roadtrek popular). Drilled a 3/8" hole in the side to mount it.The light is made out of aluminum.

This is the exact replacement but it has gotten expensive.

Same depth as original. Excellent two level light.

Default LED option

I put in this very low profile LED light in June. So far I have been very pleased with it. It mounted very easily and actually has two mode: a bright warm white and a low blue light.

Hello
I hit my head on that a hundred times.
What I did was really simple.
I removed the old bulb and starter.
I installed five small square glue in place leds.
I then bought I really nice looking frisbee.
Used the same old switch.
Drill a hole in center of frisbee.
Now I have a light that uses next to no power !
Is nice and bright!
It is super low profile!
And cost almost nothing!
And in a pinch..... me and the Yorker can play frisbee!
If you would like to go this way and want a picture or two.... let me know
Eddie
