Everybody is trying to figure out what headlights fits 1998-2002 bounder motorhomes. Put a new set in my 2000 bounder today. They fit a 1992-1996 e ford van. Went right in with same hardware. Bought them on ebay shipping and all and was 39.00. Even the bulbs come with the housings!!

Most if not All the Headlights used in Motorhomes are obtained from the Auto Parts suppliers. I have found that they are often from 2 to 3 Year Old Vehicles that were popular models!
The ones used on Our 98 Dutch Star for example were straight off the Ford Pickups and Broncos in the mid 90's.
I have been looking at upgrading the Look and have discovered that there are Projector Beam units that are very Smart looking available. I'm told that they Lokk better than they function, but since We almost never drive at night I'm tempted to Go For it.
The Tail lights are also pretty Generic on Our Rig...Bargman Boring... I'm thinking that there should be some nice Mustang Tail lights that will adapt easily.

Very interesting I bet many don't know that! Thanks for posting the tip.

There is a DOT number on the headlight housings. They should be one number difference from left to right. Do a search on line to find replacements.

The headlights in my Monaco coach are Hella lights that came from a 700 series BMW.

We just ordered a 2013 Dutch Star and while at the factory we had taken note of the new headlamp assembly. On the interstate heading home we got passed by a 2012 Dodge Grand Caravan, by golly there were our DSDP headlights.

So we looked over our build pics for the tail lamps, their from an 06-10 Jeep Commander.
